Shlemenko criticized Emelianenko: “I lost like a child”

Shlemenko criticized Emelianenko for losing to Marcio Santos

Former Bellator middleweight champion Alexander Shlemenko criticized Alexander Emelianenko, who on Saturday at the AMC Fight Nights 106 tournament lost in the first round to the Brazilian Marcio Santos (choke hold).

“I did not expect Marcio to deal with him so easily. It was like with a child in fact, – said Shlemenko “SE”. – You know, that’s how they used to say “a bag was brought from Brazil” – and someone worked it out in 2 seconds. There is a similar situation here. I agree that the fight was dynamic, but Alexander Emelianenko, as he said about me, could not even give a slap on Marcio.

40-year-old Emelianenko suffered the 9th defeat of his professional MMA career, he also has 28 wins and 1 draw. The duel with Marcio Santos was the first for the Russian since July 2020.
