Pics: Fedor Emelianenko Reunites With Brother Aleks Emelianenko To Train For Dan Henderson

It looks like two consecutive losses have really changed how Fedor is approaching his next fight with Dan Henderson. He’s already visited different training camps and now comes word and photo evidence that he has reunited with his brother Aleksander Emelianenko. From FightSite.hr via The UG, translated by Marko Petrak:

“Fedor Emelianenko is doing his final preparations for his bout with Dan Handerson in small Rusian town called Kislodovsk. It’s situated between the Black and Caspian Seas. He recently made up with his brother Alexander after long period that this two haven’t even spoken to each other. Since he lost his two last fights, Fedor decided to change lot of things in his life, and he decided to start training with his brother Alexander again  – like they did in their prime.

Our sources tell us that both of the fighters are in great shape. Specially Alexander who lost some weight and looks really sharp. Fedor is also satisfied that he made up with his brother because this thing bothered him for a long time. Now he is lot calmer than he was before fights with Silva and Werdum.”

I don’t think we’ll see a different Fedor when he faces Hendo in a few weeks, but it will be interesting to see if he looks any sharper than he did against Bigfoot Silva.
