Pic: Fedor Emelianenko and Roy Jones Jr. watch 'Snowman' melt in Russia

M1 Global

Now there's something you don't see every day ...

What was former PRIDE FC Heavyweight Champion Fedor Emelianenko doing in the company of boxing legend Roy Jones Jr.?

Watching Jeff Monson lose in Russia.

"The Snowman" melted in the first round of his rematch against Chaban Ka, running his losing streak to five straight in the co-main event of M-1 Challenge 47: "Battle in the Heart of the Continent," from inside Orenburgzhe Sport Hall in Orenburgh, Russia, on April 4, 2014.

Here are the full M-1 Challenge 47 results:

Marat Gafurov def. Lee Morrison via unanimous decision
Chaban Ka def. Jeff Monson via technical knockout
Marcin Tybura def. Mario Perek via technical knockout
Luis Fernando Miranda def. Vasily Babich via submission (guillotine choke)
Julien Williams def. Rasul Abdulaev via knockout
Alexi Kunchenko def. Anatoly Safronev via submission (verbal)
Ivan Buchinger def. Sergey Golyaev via submission (rear naked choke)
Kamil Maron def. Georgy Furov via unanimous decision
Said Maadziev def. Murad Mirzabekov via submission (armbar)

The 43-year-old Monson drops to 49-18-1.

Emelianenko has long since retired from mixed martial arts (MMA), but has been known to surface for local combat sports events. "The Last Emperor" is also one of the first men on the scene everytime UFC comes to town (pic). As for Jones Jr., he's fresh off another pugilistic win in Russia (details) and may eventually apply for citizenship.

Maybe he was a big fan of Ivan Drago?
