Fedor Emelianenko Named President Of Russian MMA Union

Fedor Emelianenko will remain in MMA even if he holds up to his retirement speech.

Emelianenko, who announced the end of his long-fighting career earlier this year, was named the president of the Russian MMA Union, according to M-1 Global Director of Operations Evgeni Kogan.

Emelianenko won his last three fights after a three-fight losing streak while competing in Strikeforce. The 35-year-old holds a career record of 34-4, and will likely go down as one of the greatest fighters of all-time.
