In another universe, Alexander Shlemenko could have easily been a dude that would be at the top of our list of Denny’s Street MMA exhibitions. He fights like he’s always in the process of falling down, and that’s why we love him at MiddleEasy. We knew of his ability to effortlessly pull off a spinning backfist before most did, so I guess we truly are neo-MMA hipsters. However, did you know that Alexander Shlemenko fought last night in Russia against Marcos Antonio Santana at League S-70: Russia vs. Brazil? Of course you didn’t, that’s why MiddleEasy exists. We inform you of otherwise disregarded information on a daily basis — because we love you. Correction, Cat Von C loves you. She always needs more Twitter followers, so fire up those 486s and give her a follow.
Check out this video of Alexander Shlemenko’s scrap last night, just six weeks before his Bellator 50 bout against Zelg Galešić. Yes, there is a Putin/Fedor appearance in there. [Source]
