It all started when Russian Mixed Martial Arts legend Fedor Emelianenko, who is currently the head of the MMA Union, the governing body of Russian MMA, released a statement on his social media account in which he criticized the organizers of an MMA event called “Grand Prix Akhmat 2016” that featuring MMA fights between children aged eight, nine, and ten.

In his statement, Emelianenko also personally addressed Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, who was an honored guest at the tournament because his own kids took part in the bouts.

“What happened at the tournament in Grozny is unacceptable and, moreover, cannot be justified,” he wrote on his social media account.
