The UFC makes its debut in Russia on Saturday with UFC Fight Night 136.
In the main event, Mark Hunt meets Aleksei Oleinik in a heavyweight battle. The two combatants might be two of the oldest fighters to headline a UFC fight card, but that doesn’t mean they don’t deserve to be at the top of the card. These two veteran battlers have racked up quite a number of finishes throughout their respective careers.
As for the prelims, streaking lightweight competitors Rustam Khabilov and Mairbek Taisumov look to break into the 155-pound rankings. Khabilov matches up against Kajan Johnson, while Taisumov meets Desmond Green.
UFC Fight Night 136 takes place at Olympic Stadium in Moscow. The entire card streams on UFC Fight Pass.
