If Sergei Kharitonov is a son of a gun, then it’s clear that his father is a Klingon Death Ray. Some people call him the palest dark horse to ever compete in the heavyweight division, I just call him ‘sir’ and politely step away. It’s been a while since we’ve witnessed Sergei decimate brain cells inside a cage on American soil. Let’s not forget that Sergei Kharitonov robbed consciousness from Andrei Arlovski in the first round of the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand-Prix and he did it with the most manly and relaxed ground-and-pound ever executed in the cage. That night, Sergei treated his fists like very well coordinated 747 planes taking off from the airport with their final destination set directly to Arlovski’s mandible.
The world finally realized that those meat hooks attached to Kharitonov’s forearms is just an accelerated way for another human to drop to the floor through the use of brute force. Now according to LifeSports.ru Sergei Kharitonov is close to signing with the UFC. Here’s a Google translated excerpt of the Russian article.
The famous 31-year-old heavyweight Sergei Kharitonov should soon sign a contract with the UFC.
One of the greatest modern Russian fighters will move back across the ocean, and will act in the strongest league in the world MMA.
According to the Life Sports, after several bouts held under the auspices of the Golden Glory, Sergey has decided not to renew the relationship with this organization. According to unconfirmed reports, the cause of disagreement – the financial aspect. The organization has not paid the fees due him to Sergei.
Kharitonov himself in an interview with Life Sports said that he was pleased to continue his career overseas.
– UFC – is the strongest world league of mixed martial arts. I, as an athlete, always fun to fight with the strongest and best rivals. These are the fighters and stand in the UFC. I hope that I will be able to speak in this league.
If you haven’t seen Sergei Kharitonov vs. Daniel Ghita at the K-1 World GP, then you should probably direct your cursor to this link. The guy’s skeletal structure is hyper-dense, enabling him to sustain damage that would fatally wound lesser men. Let’s just hope planet earth survives long enough to see Kharitonov’s UFC debut.
