So there is a lot going on in the world of punching and kicking today, including the W5 event in Russia that saw a rematch from GLORY 16 of Sergei Kharitonov vs. Anderson "Braddock" Silva. Braddock came into the fight looking bulked up from when we saw him previously and Kharitonov was ready for Braddock this time around.
It was strikingly similar to the last time that the two met, with it being Braddock's fight to lose. It was, as the kids would say, #HeavyweightKickboxing. As round two wore on Kharitonov was taking more shots than he was blocking, but he was able to corner Braddock and strong arm him back into the ropes where he landed a shot that put him down, with the ref calling the fight.
