The Allen Dulles Band are a Moscow-based group responsible for hits such as 'Rootin' Tootin' Putin'.
Their latest song 'Build A Wall' is all about Donald Trump's proposed border between the U.S.A and Mexico, and the track features Monson front and center.
Two-time ADCC champion (1999, 2005) Monson is a well-known communist and anarchist. He has been openly critical of the U.S. government and in recent years has spent more and more time in Russia. He wrote in 2016 that he estimates he has visited the country over 25 times.
The black belt grappler and renowned MMA fighter even became an honorary citizen of Luhansk People's Republic, a breakaway rebel state in eastern Ukraine.
In 2009 Monson vandalized the Washington State Capitol building, spray-painting the anarchy and peaces symbols and the slogans 'no poverty' and 'no war'. He was sentenced to 90 days of work release and ordered to pay $21,894 in restitution.
