Russian mixed martial arts fighter Sergei Kharitonov spoke about the fight between Alexander Emelianenko and Magomed Ismailov. According to Kharitonov, Emelianenko drank a week before the fight at the ACA 107 tournament, which led to his defeat.
“People told me that Emelianenko drank a week before the fight. So nothing new. The result of the battle was obvious. If it hadn't been for drinking, Maga would have had less chances. People saw him boozing in the Marriott a week before the fight. The person does not change. While Emelianenko was in Grozny, of course, he had no chance to drink. The club "Akhmat" has a friendly and athletic team. And then he left for Sochi free, relaxed: one, second shot. But he does not know how to stop, "- said Sergei Kharitonov in an interview with the correspondent of "Championship" Arina Lavrova.
