Emelianenko (40-6 MMA, 4-2 BMMA), the legendary former PRIDE FC champion, thrived in his homecoming fight in Moscow with a first-round knockout victory over Johnson (15-8 MMA, 3-4 BMMA) in the heavyweight fight at VTB Arena.
“The Last Emperor” said pre-fight that he wouldn’t retire after this win, and at 45 years old, it remains to be seen if he sticks to his guns.
