Sorry Fedor, but we think Minakov is the new king of the overhand right KO

A twenty-seven-year-old heavyweight rocking a flawless 8-0 record with all but one of his wins coming in the first round by some brutally violent finish -- where's your god at now MMA talent scouts? You guys should have saw Vitaly Minakov coming, instead you will all pay with your consciousness, and a really bad headache when you wake up. Actually it was Leland Roling that gave the MMA world the heads-up about the Russian fighter in his annual World Scouting Report which is now defunct. Bummer.

Minakov is a four-time sambo world champion and is probably running a close race with Guram Gugenishvili for the title of the most promising European heavyweight prospect in MMA. Oh, and the guy hits like a friggin' particle accelerator. If the Large Hadron Collider ever breaks down, give Minakov a call. Unfortunately former UFC heavyweight, Eddie Sanchez, had to feel the torque Minakov's overhand right possessed at last night's Fight Nights - Battle of Moscow 7 in Russia. After watching this video there's a strong possibility that you will hold your jaw to make sure it's still connected to your face.
