Fedor Emelianko might have won the war, but he didn’t come out injury free.
Emelianenko, 33, also is dealing with health issues. He suffered a fracture and tendon damage in his left thumb, and a fractured nose in the Rogers fight, Coker said. Emelianenko stopped in Los Angeles on Monday to be treated for the injuries.
“[The hand injury] could’ve been from that blow when he had Brett on the mat at the end,” Coker said. “We’re hearing he could be out for four to six months.” [LA Times]
Fedor is recently married and it wouldn’t be surprised if he is looking for a little downtime after his big win.
