Since announcing his retirement in December 2012, Alex has received a small fine for being a hooligan and is now spending time in a Greek monastery.

Back at the end of December, Heavyweight Aleksander Emelianenko announced his retirement from mixed martial arts. Just prior to that, the younger Emelianenko had been released by Russian-based fight promotion M-1 who had employed him and his brother Fedor Emelianenko.

On Monday, RSport reported that Alex was fined for an altercation on an airplane only days before his release and subsequent retirement:

"During the flight, the renowned athlete caused a breach of public order, spoke loudly, molested passengers, provoked them into fights, did not react to remarks from the cabin crew, demanded liquor, used foul language, smoked in the airplane," Barnaul transport prosecutors said in a statement issued to media.

Emelianenko, 31, admitted a low-level hooliganism charge and was fined 700 rubles ($22.70), prosecutors said.

Additionally, Blood and Sweat revealed on New Years Eve that Emelianenko had decided to spend several months at a monastery in Mount Athos, Greece. This week, his brother Fedor posted picture of his brother hauling boulders and baking bread.
