There is usually a lot of competition between siblings that train and compete together. The drive and competitive nature between two or more siblings naturally pushes each other to try and come out on top.

Here, we take a look at Fedor and Aleksander Emelianenko sparring on a blacktop with one another. Both Fedor and Aleksander have had lengthy careers in mixed martial arts, fighting professionally since the 2000’s,

Fedor is still fighting and is set for his Bellator debut, which will be against former UFC fighter Matt Mitrione at Bellator 180. The event takes place in New York on June 24.

Aleksander on the other hands was released from prison last year after being convicted of sexual assault. There were talks of Aleksander returning to competition after his time in prison, but nothing has been arranged for the younger Emelianenko brother to return to competition as of yet.
