UFC flyweight and sambo champion Ali Bagautinov (via Instagram), fresh off his UFC 169 win over John Lineker (results), was shipped back to Mother Russia to help carry the Olympic torch in advance of the 2014 Winter Games, which get underway tomorrow (Feb. 6) in Sochi. "Puncher King" is certainly in good company, as mixed martial arts (MMA) legend Fedor Emelianenko also set the streets ablaze earlier this month (video). Any fight fans out there going to be following this year's festivities?
