“The Last Emperor” Fedor Emelianenko quickly dispatched Frank Mir on Saturday night with a first-round knockout in a Bellator event in Rosemont, Illinois. While he was in the United States, he has been questioned by the FBI.

Emelianenko, the MMA legend from Russia, has connections to President Donald Trump, according to the Associated Press. He also has connections to Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal attorney, along with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The meeting happened last Tuesday incident his hotel room when he met with two agents. His agent Jerry Miller refused to discuss what the agents wanted to talk about.

“The FBI came to the hotel looking to talk to Fedor and they were very nice, came in to speak with Fedor for a few minutes, spoke to me, very cool guys, and that’s all I can say about it,” Mullen said. “Again, the FBI did come to the hotel, they found us, knocked on the door.

“Hundred percent, kind of surprised. They were very nice, very professional.”

The agents also attended his fight, according to Millen.

Trump has had connections with Emelianenko since 2008 when the President previously held an ownership stake in Affliction Entertainment. Putin previously attended Emelianenko’s fights — and has also been photographed with Putin.

Affliction lasted just two events before the promotion ceased operations. Emelianenko headlines both events, and Cohen was the company’s, Chief Operating Officer.

The FBI has been investigating if Russia played a rule in Trump winning the 2016 election. NPR recently posted on Twitter that Trump has been cleared of any wrongdoing in allegations that His campaign had Russia help him win over Hillary Clinton — who continues to refuse that she lost the election.

Cohen had his offices raided two weeks ago by the FBI, as they were seeking information in an agreement between him and Porn star Stormy Daniels, who received hush money from the Trump campaign. Daniels and Trump reportedly had an affair in 2006.
