The man on the right should've hit the elliptical a bit more before the fight. No idea where the other fellow is shopping. Are those authentic Russian prison tattoos?

Actually, yes.

One also suspects Russian prisons are not the most gentlemanly quarters.

The tribal tattoos look non-Russian prisionish, but the others probably are.

I was at the Virgin Megastore on sunset and they had a book/encyclopedia of all known Russian Prison tattoos...it was pretty sweet.


Oh, and he dresses terribly...unfortunately, I think everyone is too afraid to tell him, though.

The sales assistant with the bengal striped shirt and purple tie looks like a total douche.

At least someone might have the temerity to suggest to the Slavonic pankratiast that dress trousers are not worn at groin level and that the bottom button of a suit coat is left unbuttoned.

He's ok but his brother is arguably the best fighter in the world. Aleksander is the crazy one. From his wiki:
Emelianenko has claimed that he killed a bear by trapping its head with a fork-like staff and stabbing it in the heart with a knife. This is a traditional, but not common, way of Russian bear hunting.
Aleksander's tattoos are a constant source of questions from his fans and journalists. Aleksander explained their meaning in his interview on Fedor’s official website. Tattoos * Right arm: Cathedral with five domes: symbolizes five years of imprisonment. * Shoulders: Stars: Symbolize a "career criminal" or Vor v Zakone in Russian (English translation: thief in law). * Right shoulder: cobweb: Aleksander did not explain its meaning other than saying that contrary to what has been suggested by some, it does not have anything to do with the Mafiya. In Russian prisons, tattoos using this symbol typically denote drug addiction or robbery. * Left shoulder: Russian script. * Left forearm: Half cat’s head, half skull: “Homo homini lupus est.” Translated: Man is a wolf to his fellow-man. * Back: Grim Reaper holding a baby. * Back: "Gott Mit Uns", meaning “God is with us” in German: for Aleksander, it’s a symbol of revival. This tattoo caused a controversy, since this slogan was written on belt buckles of German soldiers in the Second and Third Reich. For many Russian prisoners the phrase means you are totally opposed to the soviet penal system.[citation needed] This phrase was very popular among prisoners during the 60's and 70's, when the Soviet regime was at its worst.[citation needed] * Knees: Stars: symbolize that the owner will never be brought to his knees. These tattoos also stirred up controversy, after a picture published on his website revealed a swastika in the middle.[5] * Pirate tattoo: stands for article 167 of Russian Criminal Code: “armed robbery”. * “Fortis fortuna adiuvat” Translated: Fortune favors the bold. * A name on his lower abs (Maybe 'Marina'). Later covered by a tribal tattoo. * A spider web on scalp.

I don't see any pictures with the 3rd button is buttoned. The 9th picture shoes the right side covering the left which is why all 3 buttons are visible. Someone does need to get that man a belt.

Those are some pretty nice suede wingtips. Surprised to see him in that kind of footwear.

while I agree, and I'm not personally a fan, I have to say that they fit rather well overall on any man with large muscles, and to a certain degree (in terms of fit) they are more flattering than most t shirts one would come by.

that being said, they're still overall rather "douchey", if I may use the word.
