The FBI questioned MMA star for possible connections to Trump, Putin”

Fedor Emelianenko was interviewed by agents on Tuesday according to his manager, and agents were reportedly at his fight on Saturday.

With AP Photos.A Russian mixed martial arts fighter who has connections with President Donald Trump, the president's personal attorney Michael Cohen and Russian President Vladimir Putin was questioned this week by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, his manager confirmed.

Interviewed midweek by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, Russian fighter Fedor Emelianenko has capped a hectic week by defeating American Frank Mir within a minute at MMA's Bellator Heavyweight World Grand Prix.

Millen would not go into detail regarding the line of questions the Federal Bureau of Investigation had for his client. "Again, the Federal Bureau of Investigation did come to the hotel, they found us, knocked on the door", Jerry Millen, Emelianenko's manager, said.

"Hundred percent, kind of surprised", Millen added. And Emelianenko signed with a fighting league Trump was a partial owner of back in 2008.

As a Russian celebrity, Emelianenko has been photographed with Putin on several occasions. Trump announced a joint venture involving MMA and Emelianenko at a news conference on June 5, 2008. That's when Emelianenko would headline two events for Affliction Entertainment MMA, a promotion in which Trump held an ownership stake.

Cohen was the league's chief operating officer. Earlier this year, Daniels alleged she had an affair with Trump in 2006 and said Cohen offered her $130,000 in hush money. Two weeks ago, the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided Cohen's NY offices, hotel and home, seeking information about a nondisclosure agreement he brokered with porn star Stormy Daniels days before the 2016 election.

Former FBI Director James Comey on Sunday derided the Republican House Intelligence Committee's report on meddling by Russian Federation in the 2016 election as "a wreck", while reaffirming his distrust of President Donald Trump.
