Aleks Emelianenko training in a Chechen gym (pic)

Brick pillar is for excitement.

Clever WFA placement in background confirms Aleks is a UG'er

I like the weird Aladdin carpet going up to cage. Only in Russia. 

He's got that look in his eyes Joe.....

It's sad to train in Chechnya without alcohol

Looks like Akhmat gym where Thiago Silva is training Chechen fighters.

I thought they him and his brother had problems with the Chechens?

Ninja mon - I thought they him and his brother had problems with the Chechens?

Aleks had no problems signing with the Chechens after they called him alcoholic and criminal and threated his brother / allegedly attacked his daughter.

Lol. Most unenthusiastic selfie ever. Did he take this just to show his parole officer he really is in the gym??

Well, I can definitely put on my profile that I have an MMA fighters physique.
