On Friday, heavyweight Aleksander Emelianenko returned to action. He took on Eddy Bengtsson at a ProFC event in Moscow. Bengtsson represented Sweden in Greco-Roman wrestling at the 2000 and 2004 Olympic Games, and he is a training partner of UFC light heavyweight Alexander Gustafsson. He came into the bout with a 3-1 record.

Clearly Bengtsson does not have the best chin in the world. Since he retired from wrestling, he probably does not have a lot left in tank physically. Emelianenko is just clearly better than anyone he can fight on the Easteran European scene. If he can get his health issues figured out, he should be back in the U.S. as soon as possible.
