Emelianenko’s former promoter handed 10-year sentence for drug trafficking


After being found guilty of numerous drug trafficking offences, Alexander Emelianenko’s former MMA promoter has been handed a 10-year jail sentence.

Oleg Raevsky — founder of the now defunct Coliseum FC promotion in Russia — was arrested in 2017 during a controlled transaction set up by the Department of Drug Control in St. Petersburg. Raevsky was caught selling 5.16 grams of white powder, which forensics later determined as cocaine. His buyer had already established an agreement with local authorities and the controlled transaction took place shortly thereafter.
