Ultimate Fighting Championship wanted to hold its events in Russia this year, but they failed - that doesn't surprise me as things are different there. Zuffa, however, hasn't given up yet and has plans to bring the UFC's events into 55 million Russian households in the nearest future according to UFC chief global brand officer Garry Cook during his appearance at MMA Hour.
"We're just about to announce a television deal in Russia. 55 million households. We've never done an event in Russia. The growth is all of that, a global business is how you make sure you create relevant content in the U.S., relevant content for all the other markets, creating more content, creating local heroes, national fame."

Cook didn't reveal which on channel they were planning to air their shows.

Sergey Kharitonov after being in a helpless position in the first round against Kenny Garner, waked up in the second and won the fight in the third via doctor's stoppage. 

Marcin Tybura retained his M-1 Heavyweight title after he choked out Estonian prospect Denis Smoldarev in the opening round. Smoldarev scored a takedown early on from the clinch, but paid for it as Tybura took his back and after softing him up with strikes executed a rear-naked choke. 

Damian Grabowski and Konstantin Glukhov traided strikes in clinch and on the ground in the first round, but in the second the Polish dominated on the ground. In the final round Grabowski took the fight to the floor again and submitted Glukhov from the top.

Kevin Ferguson better known as Kimbo Slice heads to Europe to fight popular super heavyweight Belarusian boxer Alexander Ustinov in a ten round boxing match. Both men has not appeared in the ring since 2013. The match will be held at Dynamo Palace of Sports in Krylatskoye, Moscow, Russia.
Kimbo became popular by his undeground fights on the web. He even appeared on the TUF reality show. Unfortunately he wasn't that lucky inside the cage, losing to Seth Petruzelli and Matt Mitrione by TKO. Then he jumped to pro-boxing where he has an impressive record of 7 fights which includes 6 KO.

Ustinov has competed in professional boxing since 2005. He won 29 fights including 21 by knockout and has only one loss. 

This is going to be a tough fight for Kimbo, but this guy can punch. Ustinov will probably keep his distance and probably will end the fight by counter punch. Anyway who knows - I will for sure see this fight and no doubt I will post it here on combatbear.com when it's done. Stay with us and don't forget to spread this news!
