Fedor Emelianenko, a former Pride champion, remembered his childhood triumph in the flak acrobatic jump.
In the Okko TV documentary, Emelianenko stated, “I really loved it when our gymnasts did flak.” – Do you know what a flask is? Jump back, arms-legs. So I could jump the whole hall – one, two, three, four, five, and six – so I could jump the whole hall. He told the men today – Kirill von [Sidelnikov] was doubtful (laughs).
I used to get up at 6:00 a.m., brush my teeth quickly, and web site run here, to the stadium near the school. And I ran three kilometers around this stadium before training, and then I went to training. What would I tell a 13-year-old version of myself now? “I used to live in the hall, and I still do,” you’re on the right track.
On October 23, Emelianenko will meet Timothy Johnson at Bellator 269 in Moscow.
