    .... Affliction Entertainment, a Trump mixed-martial arts venture of boxing, wrestling and karate that featured a Russian Army veteran named Fedor Emelianenko. (“His thing is inflicting death on people,” Mr. Trump said at the time.) ....

    That is probably the biggest mischaracterization of Emelianenko I've ever seen.

    Fedor was a pioneer and the best of his era. Unfortunately the fight game caught up with him. His reflexes slowed and his chin got weaker. He also abandoned the ground game. All this led to the Fedor we see today, a sloppy brawler. Still a huge fan though, hope he wins his next fight.

    Trump, on the other hand, hit the nail on the head. Fedor inflicted death on others for a good 10 years.

    Idiot, Fedor was a UFC fighter and Trump is the leader of the republican party which Dana White spoke in front of. Also UFC is an American company, Trump runs America, i.e. Trump runs the UFC.

    The "muh Russia" narrative has gotten so out of hand they're using Trump's Affliction ties with promoting Fedor to try to prop it up. Wow.

    The Feds have identified both Fedor and Sensei Seagal as persons of interest in the investigation
