Now every fan of mixed martial arts knows the name of Sergei Kharitonov. Over 40 professional fights and superstar status in the world of MMA. Ambiguous boxing fights and a long-standing confrontation with Alexander Emelianenko. The great interest of spectators and specialists in the figure of Sergei makes any of his appearances both in the ring and in the information space relevant.
Today we will see a fight that, in my opinion, even many seasoned fans of mixed martial arts have not seen.
It took place on August 20, 2005 in Yekaterinburg at the Rings promotion tournament called CIS against the rest of the world. The card of the tournament was replete with iconic names of those times. After all, such mastodons of domestic mixed martial arts as Bozigit Ataev, Yuri Kochkin and Mikhail Ilyukhin entered the ring. Sergey by that time would already be a real star of Pride FC and therefore fought in the main battle of the evening.
Sergey’s rivals in the main fight of the evening went to the Dutch fighter Peter Mulder, who was distinguished by just the same gigantic growth. He mostly competed in Rings Holland tournaments and gravitated towards striking techniques, finishing most of his fights with knockouts.
