I was surprised to learn he's only 33. It feels like he's been around forever.

He was Top 10 for a while but his ground game seems to have suffered in the few years for some reason. Maybe focusing too much on kickboxing?

Presently he would be at least Top 20 for sure. I could see him breaking in the Top 10 again with the right match ups.

Fun fighter to watch with lots of power. Have been wanting him in the UFC for a while. Hopefully this happens.

I'm sick of hearing about this, every 6months or so we hear that Kharitonov's back, in shape and aiming for the UFC then he just fights some unheralded HW in a backyard promotion somewhere.

If he signs, awesome, but I'm sick of the false dawns.

That was a weak win, Sergei hurt/dislocated his shoulder. Sergei KOed Reem (which I think was a punch right to the back of the head... I guess they dont have rules against that in Japan)

Sergei KO'd Tyler East this weekend.

Maybe we can hope to see him in the UFC ?

LOL. His mma striking is very bad. I think in ufc's hw divison are at least 10 people with better striking than him. Hunt will murder him in first three minutes.

Overeem destroyed his shoulder. The win is even more brutal if you count this.

Nothing special, just usual talk about possible signing with ufc if they would offer him a good deal (it probably means Strikeforce contract(100 000$) He fights for Glory in May.
