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 MMA hipsters. There’s no way we’re rocking a handlebar mustache like Ian McCall though. That guy is the king of all hipsters in Southern California. If aliens came down to earth and requested a diplomat from each fashion scene to be taken aboard their mothership, hipsters across the world would scribble Ian McCall’s name on a piece of paper so underground that you probably didn’t even know it existed.
Fortunately for the fashion industry, Shlemenko doesn’t know it exists. If he did, everyone would be rocking Russian track suits and backfisting every inanimate object in sight. Earlier this month, Shlemenko let the world know that he recovered from his automobile accident and that he’s ready to hop back into his MMA career, right hook first. Now Shlemenko has cut another video in order to answer a couple questions from MMA message boards across the net. Alexander wants you to know who his favorite fighters are, and I suggest you should stop what you’re doing and listen.
