The sixteen year old daughter of the legendary Fedor Emelianenko was attacked by unknown assailants while walking to her home after school.
The attack by is believed to be in response for Emelianenko speaking out against the children’s MMA fights that were promoted a couple of weeks ago in Chechnya. According to reports, Fedor’s daughter suffered from a contusion of the chest and abdomen and she has noticeable bruises on her body. She is currently hospitalized in Moscow.
Fedor’s daughter is unwilling to proclaim or identify who attacked her at this point in time because, according to the local police, “perhaps she is intimidated by those who attacked her.”
Fedor has come under scrutiny from those in the land of Chechnya, like Chechnya President Ramzan Kadyrov, UFC fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov, current World Series Of Fighting Flyweight Champion Magomed Bibulatov and others.
Kadyrov recently requested that everyone who attacked Fedor via social media or through other statement delete everything they have said because the fighter “realized his mistake.”
The battle between Fedor and Kadyrov’s cronies may not be ending anytime soon because the Kremlin and the Commissioner For Children’s Rights in the Russian Federation are currently reviewing the aforementioned children’s MMA fights. A report and review is expected to be released in a weeks’ time.
Fedor’s next MMA appearance is not yet set in stone, but rumors are swirling that the legendary heavyweight wants to fight again by the end of this year.
