Aleksander Emelianenko, Brother of Fedor, TKOs Ibragim Magomedov

In an MMA fight that lasted less than a minute and a half, Aleksander Emelianenko was first rocked by an Ibragim Magomedov punch and then declared the winner by TKO when a cut prevented Magomedov from continuing.

The Emelianenko-Ibragim fight was part of Sunday's ProFC 5: Russia vs. Europe card, an obscure enough show that I didn't hear about it until after the fact, when I read about it at Five Ounces of Pain.

Emelianenko, the younger brother of Fedor Emelianenko, is widely regarded as one of the Top 20 heavyweights in the world. But he was pulled from the July Affliction card after being denied a license to fight in California, and it's still not clear whether he'll ever fight again in any country that has strict licensing requirements.

He is still fighting, though, and he's now 15-3 in his MMA career.
