Meanwhile, Sergei Kharitonov (34-9 MMA) most recently competed this past November in Dubai, where he earned a first round TKO victory over fellow veteran Fabio Maldonado. ‘The Paratrooper’ has gone 3-1 over his past four fights overall, scoring finishes in all three of those victories.

After nearly finishing the fight in the opening round, the Russian veteran scored his desired finish in the second frame with some nasty ground and pound.
