Alexander Shtorm Shlemenko is one of the brightest, famous and eminent fighters in Russian mixed martial arts. On our channel, you could already watch two of his epic battles against Vyacheslav Vasilevsky or a knockout with one blow to the liver, with which Alexander revenged his defeat in a fight with American Brandon Halsey, nicknamed the Bull.
But today we will briefly leave the M-1 arena and go to the Bodog Fights series tournaments, which gathered a very cool line-up of participants in 2007-2008. Alexander Shlemenko already at that time had the glory of a fighter, ready to fight with anyone and at the same time show amazing fights.
That is why he also received an invitation and running ahead I will say that he showed his style in all its glory.
We apologize in advance for the quality of the video. Unfortunately, the best source of these fights was not found, but the quality of the knockouts themselves is at the highest level. So, in the first fight at the Vancouver tournament in August 2007, Alexander met with the American fighter Scott Heinze, who by that time had 19 victories with 8 defeats and was considered a master of painful holds.In the second battle, which took place in Moscow, in November of the same 2007, Alexander was opposed by the Argentine fighter Diego Vysotsky. Which, in addition to the surname native to the Russian viewer, had a very original nickname. "El Toro", that is "Bull". Alexander was clearly lucky to have bulls in the ring.
