Mixed style fighter and Moscow Region deputy Jeff Monson responded to the words of Alexander Emelianenko about his citizenship.
The fight between 50-year-old Monson and 40-year-old Emelianenko will take place in Moscow in December. Emelianenko Jr. announced this two weeks ago on his Instagram. The scandalous fighter noted that his fight against Monson was against the state of Russia and the United States. This is despite the fact that his rival has Russian citizenship since 2018 and Monson has been a member of the Council of Deputies of the Krasnogorsk city district for three years.
– Did Emelianenko say that I am a deputy, not a fighter? – writes Jeff Monson “Moscow Region Today”. “Well, I think he’s just trying to catch up on the drama for our fight. My deputy work has nothing to do with my fights or training. Regarding the confrontation between Russia and the United States: I am a 100% Russian citizen. I would say that in fact I am more Russian than Alexander. He was born and raised in Russia and has no choice but to be Russian. I grew up in America, but I still live in Russia and have Russian citizenship by choice.
The upcoming fighters will be revenge on bare fists. Prior to that, Snowman had already defeated Alexander Emelianenko in 2012 in St. Petersburg according to the rules of MMA. Then Monson successfully carried out a choke hold in the second round.
