Alexander Emelyanenko faces Hizir Pliev in pro boxing debut – video


On Oct. 3, 2009, Alexander Emelyanenko made his boxing debut in Moscow against master of sports in boxing and Russian kickboxing champion Hizir Pliev. In the end, the judges ruled that each fighter won two rounds each and the fight was declared a draw. Alexander commented after the fight, “Halfway through this fight I realized that I’m not at home in my bed and I have to move around much more and box. I don’t think I let a lot punches land on me and I had complete control of everything that was going on.”

Alexander felt he did not really become comfortable until after the second round and if the fight would have continued he would have knocked out his opponent. “I was boxing much better after the second round,” He said. “In the third I saw my opponent getting back a little. He had somewhat of a chance in the first two rounds but then began his retreat. If there was more time, my opponent would have been knocked out in the fifth or sixth round.”

Parts 2-3 after the jump…

Patrick Barry will give Dan Evensen all he can handle at UFC 92
Patrick Barry makes his UFC debut at UFC 92

Where is a place all champions have been but never want to return? It’s a place where dues are paid and checks are made. It’s a proving ground, a place to show your skills and put on a show. It’s a place where a fighter wants to do their absolute best even though the majority of people may never even see it.

It’s been said that the loneliest place in the world is inside the Octagon. If that is true, then inside the Octagon, ON THE UNDERCARD is the loneliest place in the universe.

The UFC has used their undercards for years to bring in new talent, test them out, and see what they are made of.  Hopefully, the fighters do well enough they can one day fight on the main card.

Robert Drysdale to make MMA debut

by: Jack Bratcher

PRO MMA has just learned that the Xtreme Couture BJJ instructor and grappling phenom, Robert Drysdale is set to make his amateur MMA debut at Tuff-N-Uff’s Future Stars of MMA on October 17 at the Orleans Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

Whenever we speak to fighters from the Xtreme Couture gym in Vegas, one name always comes up when the subject of grappling is raised, and that is Robert Drysdale.  His name seems to have reached almost mythical proportions and this has stemmed from the way top level professional fighters describe his grappling abilities.

Now while MMA is a different ballgame than straight jiu-jitsu, Drysdale is certainly surrounded by some of the best fighters in the game at Couture’s that can help round out his skills.  I certainly would not want to learn that one of the first fights in my amateur career would be against Robert Drysdale.  No opponent has been named yet.  Hopefully Tuff-N-Uff can find an amateur willing to get in there with him.  Good luck with that Barry!
