What feeling out process?
Misha Cirkunov and Volkan Oezdemir went all out during their Light Heavyweight co-main event bout at UFC Fight Night 109: “Gustafsson vs. Teixeira,” which went down earlier today (Sun., May 28, 2017) inside Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.
From the jump, neither man was interested in warming up, as they went blow-for-blow from the opening bell. Staying true to form, Misha tried to bull rush his foe against the cage. For his troubles, Cirkunov ate a short right to the back of his ear which dropped him like a sack of potatoes.
To the naked eye, the shot didn’t devastating and powerful, but it’s all about placement, as the strike hit the sweet spot to earn Volkan his fourth straight victory and the focus of many potential challengers.
