Ninja supposedly underwent brain surgery immediately after that fight, but he looks ok in the backstage vids.

I was a huge Kharitonov fan up until the Aleksander Emelianenko fight, the manner in which he lost pissed me off.

I was told by a serious insider with direct knowledge many years ago that Ninja had a shunt(?) put in his brain permanently to drain the water on his brain caused by that fight. He was definitely brain damaged by that fight.

Apparently he can't talk right at all nowadays...

Never heard about the brain damage part. I know he got served in that fight though.

Ridiculous management decision to put Ninja in that hw tournament. That beating was hard to watch and Ninja was never the same fighter after. Never heard the brain damage stories but it doesn't surprise me. Allan Goes suffered some serious brain injuries against Marl Coleman, and then again against Alex Steibling in Pride as well. Bleeding on the brain, I think I read. Knees to the head.

dead soul

That Goes/Coleman finish was hard to watch. The ref really really fucked that up and it cost Allan badly...

The brain shunt thing is direct from someone with first hand knowledge.

That was hilarious. He was beating Aleks and then waved him on and got TKO'd! Amazing. Sergei always struck me as kinda dumb...

Ninja's gamesmanship, toughness, and cardio was sick back then. That was the fight on that card that was dark horse can't miss/blink television.
It was clear after that fight something changed, and I didn't know about the brain shunt either.
Those were the golden years!
Who would've thought it was Shogun that would trump him later in the history books?....not me.
