MOSCOW, January 22 (RAPSI) – A criminal case against MMA fighter Alexander Emelianenko, facing assault charges will be forwarded to court soon, Moscow police press service told RIA Novosti.

A 63-year-old man was hospitalized with multiple injuries in October 2013 following a brawl in a cafe in southeastern Moscow. Emelianenko was later brought in for questioning by police, but released after filing a counter-claim stating he was only defending himself.

Police stated that the investigation in  the case against Emelianenko had reached completion, but could not be forwarded to the court prior to the suspect‘s appearance before the investigator to review the file and to receive the official indictment.

Following the incident, MMA promotion company Legend terminated its contract with Emelianenke, stating he was "unprofessional" and unprepared for an upcoming bout scheduled to take place against Croatian fighter Mirko Filipovic on November 8. He was removed from the card and replaced with another Russian, Alexei Oleinik.

Emelianenko’s career win-loss record is 23:6. He is the younger brother of former MMA champion Fedor Emelianenko.
