I remember reading an interview with him. Was asked who his most difficult opponent was. He said something about it being his new fridge which he had to carry by himself up however many flights of stairs to his apartment

The clinch rule was not only for that olympic cycle. The same Rulon won a bronze metal in the next olympic cycle when his opponent broke his clinch.

Ehh karelin was never a combat fighter. He only wrestled. Love Chaels CTE mind and inability to tell facts, which would make him a perfect Republican lawmaker.

The answer is yes. Alexander was a absolute unit, but he was strictly a wrestler, never had any grappling or striking training, never trained in combat sports. Fedor was a fucking killer, super explosive and very very good on the ground. Dude got hard slammed on his head by Kevin Randleman and acted like nothing happened and submitted him

If you wrestled or know anything about wrestling...you know who Karelin is! The best Heavyweight wrestler period. And a total Beast! "The Experiment" super strength! His training is legandary! A ripped 280lb+ man-beast! The Rulan match was B.S. Rulan did nothing but defend...no offense, Karelin lifts Rulan off the ground multiple times but doesn't score. The fact he could lift Rulan is impressive. Karelin would throw 300lb pound olympic wrestlers like baby children! Most feared man in olympic wrestling! He hurt people! Scary thing there's a picture out there of Fedor and Karelin at a event in suits And you can see just how big Karelin is, alot bigger than Fedor, his hands are the size of a human head . I would Put my Money on Karelin against Fedor. I like Fedor, felt he should have stayed retired, But Karelin is going to get his hands on you...and it's over! Fedor is a legandary, as a fighter you want to go out on your shield, on your terms. I think Fedor finally realized after years of injury, he couldn't take a punch anymore, the game had changed, time to stop. But Karelin is just a different kinda human!!!

@Chael Sonnen I'm from Russia, 27 years old, loved sports always, had attention on forst football then combat sports, ofc watched a lot of MMA, watched with analysing kinda actually as deep as it should be maybe even enough to train for some serious matches, but simply because just enjoying analysis, the intention of keeping my brain from bouncing in a brainbox have won by miles after all. But I've seen a lot of Karelin, a lot of you(I'm a big fan, from Wandy and Anderson trashtalk to the classic Chael "make this look so easy when it's really not" double leg takedowns and overall fighting style, maybe even copied your accent halfway), and a lot of Fedor. What I feel, is that Karelin and probably the discipline he was in are just higher evolved, despite MMA being limitless due all styles and stuff, it, being not a sport, but A Promotion, still slows down the pace it improves as a discipline, and Karelin was a maximally serious man that went to the maximally deep thing, the sport, with system to find and forge the best, train with the proven methods and stuff, and so there were many different levels of mastery, each super high level and super deep. I've seen his some lectures and practice coaching, he's, as you've said, a man, made of stone, with genuinely serious attention to the training, and even if there was some will to look more alpha, 99% of alpha was generated already, automatically, because he was just that gifted and serious about what he's doing. It's like me, when I'm all bipolar all over the place, having crazy fun and being mechanically good, argueing with some man in the computer esportive game of DotA, after he does most stuff wrong, but then tells me something like "yes I do stuff wrong, but you also did this thing wrong, work on it", and I realise that, despite me, carrying doesn't matter how hard, he's still able of adding something, he's able to find this pure information unit that I lack in the way to increasing my power level. *And Carelin is WOVEN from information units and natural gifts. He's just The Unit. Fedor, as great as he is, comes only after him, and at some significant distance.*

We were moving into the same apartment block in Novosibirsk (I was about 11 at the time), he had a flat on the 5th floor and the elevator was out. The guy loaded a double “American-style” fridge freezer on his back and walked it up the stairs... Nice man though, used to chat with my granny all the time.

Karelin could have won anyone in MMA without any problems. Moreover, he does not consider MMA a sport. He has over 800 victories, just think about this astronomical figure. 8:05 This is the stupidest thing I've ever heard 🤦‍♂️. You just do not understand how physically strong Karelin was, you have never seen such strength in MMA. In his best shape, Karelin would have broken Emelianenko like a twig.

Aleksandr Karelin is the most Dominate Athlete in History.... all sports.
Keith Aipperspach
Karelin won the 1993 World Championships despite breaking two ribs in the opening bout against Matt Ghaffari. At the 1996 European Championships in Budapest, he had torn the right pectoralis major muscle so badly that doctors predicted he would not be able to use his right hand for several months. Karelin won the Championships, but had to be urgently operated on in Budapest. He recovered within three months to compete at the 1996 Olympics.
Keith Aipperspach
I will say this ........... Aleksandr Karelin did not get beat his final match. He lost the match due to a newly implemented rule and lost because his opponent was fat won the coin toss. Gardner did NOT ONE offensive move the ENTIRE match.... His only strategy was to stall, stall and stall more and hope that he won the coin toss before the "Clinch" .... that was it... Rulon Gardner did NOT BEAT Aleksandr Karelin
Heroes Of Might and Magic 3
Maybe for us normal people who dont contest this type of question are cool...but to ask true warrior will he loose against someone is disrespectful. If you are fighter you should never think about will you loose, this is no option you must win to survive! And Chael knows that because he never loose fight ;).

Karelin mma match is a 100% a work. Karelin was being very nice with the out of shape japanese pro wrestler that he was messing around with.
I am not sure Fedor could win though. Karelin was huge and in top shape. Fedor never fought someone like him.

Chael watch again he gained that clinch point in regular time. Because no one had 3 points they had to go to overtime

Wrestling is the basis in MMA. But today you have to do more than just wrestling. But if you put a young 130 kg Karelin in the UFC-cage and teach him some striking, then I do not think anyone could have stopped him.

Karelin was amazing. Could he transition to MMA, depends on his temperament. Lots of wrestlers are amazing, but dont have that KILL INSTINCT that is needed to ground and pound to oblivion.

Here's how I know Karelin is the best athlete of all time, when there is a promising young wrestler nobody says "this guy could be the next Karelin". It never occurs to anybody that that could be a possibility.

If Karelin did Mma his only possible Opponent would be Romero but i still think hed ragdoll Romero but Romero might have the best chance on the feet and much better Takedwon defense than any other guy.

I’ve watched Karelin’s matches and read all the comments about how scary he was.. I don’t see it. Wrestling looks so soft it’s just dudes hugging and taking turns mounting each other. Fedor would have given him an 8 piece nugget and sent him packing within a single round.

Huh? I never heard Karelin was juicing. Also, Gardner may have technically won over a point difference, but he really won due to being a great big fat guy. He had nothing on Karelin in terms of skill.

A guy I wrestled with in high school named Ernie was stellar..placed first in CIF and wrestled in college and was always good. Went into MMA and lost 4 fights in a row...couldn't land a punch or take one. Its hard to say if someone can transition and be successful.

Dr. Steven Horwitz DC
I was the chiropractor on the US Olympic Team's medical staff for the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. I was in the warm-up room with Aleksandr and Matt Ghaffari. Holy crap! He was one scary dude. Just jogged around the yellow ring line on the wrestling matt with a sweat jacket and towel around his neck. Matt had no fear of Karelin, but lost 1 - 0. What a match. My 2-cents on the 2000 Games. No disrespect to Rulon, but having seen Karelin up close in 1996, something wasn't right with him in 2000. Rulon won fair and square.
