VIDEO | Alexander Emelianenko KO’s Gabriel Gonzaga in Russia
Alexander Emelianenko (26-6 MMA) extended his current win streak to four in a row at last night’s Russian Cagefighting Championship 2 event scoring a second-round knockout victory over former UFC heavyweight title challenger Gabriel Gonzaga.
After spending most of the first-round on his back, Emelianenko was able to turn the tide in round two by unloading a plethora of punches on his Brazilian opponent.
Gonzaga attempted to cover up and weather the onslaught but Alexander was able to sneak through a knee which landed flush and sent Gabriel crashing to the canvas. That strike prompted the referee to step in and call a stop to the action.
Check out the finish below:
Since suffering the first two fight losing skid of his career in early 2014, “The Grim Reaper” has since gone 4-0 with all four victories coming by way of knockout/TKO.
Alexander’s knockout win comes shortly after his brother Fedor accomplished the same feat by finishing former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir at last month’s Bellator 198 event.This article appeared first on BJPENN.COM
