Video: Fedor Emelianenko is a tuxedo-wearing badass in new Mercedes-Benz commercial

Fedor haters move along, nothing to see here.

The rest of us can sit back and enjoy the former PRIDE champion and longtime mixed martial arts (MMA) heavyweight lighting rod doing what he does best: Strutting his stuff like the unassuming badass that he is. Sure, he's fighting Pedro Rizzo at the Ice Palace in a few weeks, in what's sure to be another M-1 constructed laugher, but let's not lose sight of the bigger picture.

"The Last Emperor" is selling cars.

The bigger question, is how far off camera his manager Vadim Finkelchtein was, who undoubtedly asked the people behind the German luxury cars for a co-promotion deal of some sort prior to signing on the dotted line. Anyone expect to see the Mercedes-Benz logo on the ring floor next month in St. Petersburg?
