Video of Sergei Kharitonov’s knockout on Eagle FC

And here is a visual confirmation of the total dominance of the Russian fighter over the kickboxer from Suriname. Maybe Spong needs to get back into boxing where he has the perfect rating. In MMA, without basic wrestling skills, he has nothing to catch.

Here is the first in the history of the promotion Habiba Nurmagomedova tournament in the USA. Not all fights turned out to be spectacular, but in general, the last tournament can be considered quite successful.

Sergei Kharitonov knocked out Tyrone Spong!

In the second round, Kharitonov failed to immediately transfer his opponent. The fighters worked in a stance, where the Paratrooper had a certain advantage. At the end of the second minute, Sergey nevertheless carried out a takedown, deftly going into a full mount again. There, the Russian delivered several heavy blows to the head of the Surinamese, forcing the referee to stop the fight. A clear victory for Kharitonov!

Kharitonov outright wins the first round

Kharitonov knocked his opponent over to the canvas already in the first minute, logically deciding to take advantage of his advantage on the ground. Sergey quickly got into a full mount, from where he delivered heavy blows to Spong. The Surinamese had a hard time, given that the Paratrooper also crushed him with a mass. Tyrone deftly dodged and blocked, but still took serious damage.

Rashad Evans wins for the first time since 2013

MMA veteran Rashad Evans, who resumed his career after a three-year pause, scored the first victory since November 2013, when he managed to cope with Chael Sonnenom. Evans confidently controlled the course of the confrontation with Cecco, often relying on his wrestling skills. All that the Brazilian demonstrated was attempts to hold a painful hold on his leg. But Rashad confidently acted in defense. A well-deserved decision victory for Evans, congratulations on your return to victory!
