WATCH: Bored Russian fighter KNOCKOUTS cocky Englishman

English fighter James Thompson is a talented and rising star in mixed martial arts – and like many cocky fighters, tries to use all sorts of tactics to intimidate his opponents.

James Thompson

However, his opponent Alexander Emelianenko, (brother of champion Fedor Emelianenko) is a Russian mixed martial artist and three-time Russian national Combat Sambo champion and three-time world Combat Sambo champion in the absolute division – showed the opposite, remaining calm and unshaken, some may even say bored.

Alexander Emelianenko – a man of faith in the Russian Orthodox Church.

The 6’5 (196 cm) 260 lbs (118 kg) Englishman, with his intense stare and aggressive roar, vanished in vain after the match against Alexander began – 11 seconds to be more precise when Emelianenko (6’4/193 cm, 254 lbs./115 kg) landed a few keys punches, sending a dazed and confused James “The Colossus” Thompson straight to the mat and forcing the referee to call the match.

Perhaps the lesson learned here is: never judge a book by its cover, and NEVER try to intimidate a Russian!

Wonderful. I watched it twice. Its just another example of the ‘Polite People’ overcoming the braggarts of the West in a calm and dignified manner

Bravo

No, they are not. They are from the town Statyi Oskol of Belgorod region of RF. You judge it because of the southern-russian type of surnames, that is also typical for Ukraine today.
Its somehow like if you say that John McCain actually is scottish. It looks like you reading ukranian pubs with the complex of national inferiority – they are trying to still russian, polish, and other cultures and celebrities in case of their primitivism.

Some fans referred them as Russian before, when I did. I was screamed at by Ukrainians. So, I don’t know their actually birth place and what their family tree is. Fedor is greeted by Putin often. I didn’t mean to offend any of my Russian cousins.

I see. But you should stay strong on your education and knowledge. Don`t let barking dogs from ukry to make you tolerate lies, as they live by them. They afraid of confident personalities and they always retreat after that.)

Alexander was born in what is now Russia (old USSR). His brother Fedor was born in what is now Ukraine (old USSR), but both are Russians, not Ukranians.

Yes, I also take this as a symbol of how Russia and Russians go about their work in the world – with a calm confidence and a refusal to be intimidated by bullies.

I think it has been said that in certain western Anglo countries, being “tough” involves arrogant behaviour, shouting your mouth off, and making threats. I have have always believed that being “tough” is the ability to endure hardship and to successfully come through it. No country in the world epitomises that more than Russia.

Never challenge the russian bear ! A good lesson in modesty and decorum plus great fighting skills on the part of the russian fighter ! Long live Russia ! Long live Vladimir Vladimirovich !

Who isn’t a fan of Alexander Emelianenko? Many in the USA follow his career carefully. He is the best, but so is his brother, Fedor.
