UFC Fight Night 136 aka #UFCMoscow took place Saturday at Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Russia. The main event saw Ukrankian heavyweight submission ace Oleksiy Oliynyk withstand the legendary heavy hands of Mark Hunt to stop him with a rear-naked choke near the end of round 1. The event also saw Shamil Abdurakhimov win a unanimous decision over Andrei Arlovski and M-1 Global champion Khalid Murtazaliev step in on short notice to gain an impressive TKO victory over CB Dolloway in a fight that was stopped WAY WAY TOO LATE! WTF Herb Dean? Veteran Thiago Alves also dropped a decision to Alexey Kunchenko.

If we learned anything from this event it’s that Russia’s mixed martial artists are indeed among the very best in the world and the UFC’s recent partnership with M-1 Global will be opening a new pathway for the country’s top fighters to display their talents inside the octagon.
