Thanks! Yeah alot of times fighters get accused of fighting nobodies or cans but in fact if you look at the MMA landscape back then guys like Hoffman and Mikhail were quality wins just not very well known. And theres several others like them.

Didn't really duck him. Just forfited the match due to injury.

And there are a ton of unknown guys. Especially fighters in Japan and Eastern Europe whom reacieved little attention even in their own time.

Really intresting when you watch old events and hear the commentators talk about future mega-stars like Eugene Jackson or Jay R Palmer.

I've posted highlights here before but you can also find both of the entire one night tournaments Ilyukhin was in to start his career on YT iirc.

He won the first & lost in finals in the 2nd.

That's also how Kerr bet Dan Bobish in the UFC.
