Meanwhile in Russia, just some normal MMA things going on. Batuhan Akduman may be the first fighter to lose via identity theft.
Our dude really needs to add LifeLock to his training camp. 99% chance that one of the passwords Batuhan Akduman uses is just ‘password’. He didn’t even bother to capitalize the letter ‘P’.
From Gorilla Fighting Championship in Russia over the weekend, Akduman was informed he lost. The problem was some fake fighter stole Akduman’s life and decided to take a ‘L’ to.
So you steal a pro fighter’s identity and the first thing you do is decide to compete on a regional card in Russia?
Here's your bizarre MMA story for the day. The fighter being choked here is NOT Batuhan Akduman. It seems a young fighter using a forged passport POSED as Akduman in the fight, included graphics & GFC announcing him as such. Now the real Akduman is pissed. https://t.co/EFv0ohweik https://t.co/6oI1PG8kDO

Guess everyone has their own fantasy scenarios. Not only did a fake fighter pretend to be Akduman, he then went out and got choked out for his efforts. This guy tricked the promotion. his opponent, and the referee.
The problem is this possible Nigerian Prince, sucks at fighting. So now Batuhan Akduman is pissed.
Per our friends at Google Translate
“He will see Batuhan in Armenia on 15 December!” “Abrahamyan will not see Round 2!” Shaking social media and many news channels, Armenian cage athlete Rafael Abrahamyan’ın 3-world champion of Turkish fighters Batuhan Akduman’ı tried to strangle the video-news lies. Batuhan Akduman used the name of the Armenian athlete, “He tried to strangle the Turks in the video, I’m not the person they say knocked out. I reached him and told him that I would embarrass the world. On 15 December will encounter the real Batuhan.”
What if this identity thief went out and won the fight by KO. Would Batuhan still be mad?
