Russian news reported that Jeff Monson 'knocked daylights out of Moscow cops' before his fight losing, leg breaking match with Fedor Emelianenko.

American MMA star Jeff Monson will be remembered by the Moscow crowd not only for his fight with Fedor Emelianenko, but also by his off-ring adventures in the Russian capital.

On Monday, the Russian internet simmered with discussions of Fedor Emelianenko’s latest win over the American veteran fighter Jeff Monson. While the majority of fans celebrated Fedor’s return to the sport’s elite, the others, quite a significant part it must be said, admired the American.

The matter is not about his professional skills, though many marked Monson’s spirit as the American continued the bout till the end with one of his legs broken. What the fighter will be most remembered for was his simplicity and a few extravagant tricks he made.

One of the LifeJournal users was shocked when he met Monson in the city’s Metro, which he decided to take in order to make the 40-minute trip to the Moscow outskirts, where he was to hold a master class the day before the fight. He was dressed in hooded top and wearing flip-flops. The temperature on that day was around zero degrees.

On one of the stations he noticed two policemen trying to calm down a drunken man. Their methods seemed too aggressive to the American and he rushed to calm down the policemen. Monson’s escort decided not to wait until the American, known for his penchant for anarchism, beat up the surprised law-enforcers and stopped the scuffle.

Read entire article...

Monson later took to twitter and said reports of his Moscow cop bashing were exaggerated.

To dispel the rumors- I didn't beat up 2 Russian cops. Just gave a hand to a homeless guy on metro being harrassed by cops.

Read entire twitter...

Monson followed up on his blog:

The truth is a homeless man was being assaulted by police in the subway. I grabbed his hand and pulled him up and walked with him for a bit but I never talked to or touched the officers.

You don't go into someone else's country and act like that.

Why if Monson went to England he would no doubt inform a British army sergeant that his chevrons were upside down.

Well what is he supposed to say, go fuck yourself?? He took a fight in russia and the leader of that country was there. I guess you have specific policy issues in mind you think Monson should have raised? Or better yet, don't fight in Russia at all because some UGers remember the cold war. LOL.

This story smells like bullshit


I think you want it to be

Serious question. With how beat up Monson is when he's not fighting, his short reach, and being primarily a grappler, wouldn't a group of police have a decent chance of subduing him than a lot of HWs? Or would Monson still be a handful and a half for even multiple police?

Police in Russia are not really people you want to interfere with. Nevertheless, Monson had good intent. Phone Post

Yeah, the russian cops would have just killed monson in public for attempting to do anything or even if he said anything at all I guess. They basically kill and beat down Americans there all the time and you never hear about it because it's russia?

Monson isn't saying he double legged the cops and NS choked them one by one, just that he tried to help someone. His involvement was probably almost nothing and the only person playing it up appears ot be a few MMA websites looking for hits. But I have to laugh at the idea that nobody can say anything to the police at all in Moscow because they are "not to be fucked with". Cops anywhere generally are not to be fucked with but who said he fucked with them? It says he rushed to "calm them down". Not some sort of red heat sauna fight.

Aside from his political beliefs he stood up for someone powerless and in need. He represented America well in that situation and also didn't give up fighting with a broken leg he showed much heart those are very American traits. Phone Post

Yes, showing heart is an American trait. The rest of us 6 billion that aren't American can only look on in envy and wonder what it must be like ... At least I hope that's not what you were implying?

Well I know nothing about Russian police tactics but going by American police DT I know it would take a lot of man power to control Monson. They would quickly look to taser him.

My first fight was against a guy that four cops and two bouncers couldn't control using standard police tactics. That was against an amateur nobody....Monson would be uncontrollable unless they choked or tased him

About ten years ago I was at Hank Williams Jr concert with Monson. Even though hundreds of fights were breaking out no one would get within twenty feet of Jeff. It was cool.

If those flatfoots spoke English, they'd have killed Monson.  These guys aren't like soft Americops.

As it was, Monson's admonition probably sounded like an adult from a Charlie Brown cartoon.  I don't know Russian for "what the fuck is this shit," but I bet both cops and the hobo said it.
