Roman Mailov Wins 16th Straight, Onto GLORY In 2013

Roman Mailov, a 21 year old up and coming fighter out of Poltava, Ukraine, recently signed with GLORY and today he fought his final fight of 2012 in Moscow, Russia. The event he fought on was W5's last event of the year, also with their finals of year-long tournaments which they ran.

Mailov faced Fikri Arican of Turkey and picked up his 16th win in a row, going 9-0 in 2012. The fight was set to go to an extra round but Arican refused to fight any longer so Mailov was awarded the victory by TKO.

W5 did a great job of building Mailov up as a fighter. They featured him consistently on their events and slowly but surely increased his level of competition. It also must be taken into account that 2012 was also the year where Mailov stepped up to fight at 70kg from his previous fighting weight of 63.5-67kg that he was fighting at before this year. The move up in weight has paid off, as he's been signed to GLORY and is set to make his debut for them in 2013.

Also on the card was Mailov's teammate and super prospect Alim Nabiev, who at 18 years old is also tearing through his competition, going 8-0 in Russia this year after his unanimous decision win today against Stanislav Kazantcev at 70kg. Also on the car dwas Alexander Surzhko, who took unanimous decision over England's Pete Irving.

Vladimir Mineev Survives Knockdown, Beats Ali Cenik

Fight Nights held Battle of Moscow 9 today in Moscow, Russia with three kickboxing bouts on the card. Vladimir Mineev fought the biggest test of his career in the main event against GLORY's Ali Cenik.

Mineev hadn't fought since June and it looked like there may have been some ring rust in the first round. By the second round, Mineev was starting to find his groove before getting caught with a perfectly placed coutner left hook from Cenik, sending him to the canvas. Down on the scorecards, Mineev rallied back in the third round and forced an extra round, where he dropped Cenik and got a decision victory. Mineev was tested and passed, but I'll be the first to say that he didn't look really good like he normally does. The good thing is that he's still only 22, and this fight also showed that he should stick to fighting at 95kg and not pursue heavyweight.

At 80kg, one of the top light heavyweights in kickboxing, Alexander Stetsurenko returned to the ring where he faced Golden Glory's Karapet Karapetyan. On paper this seemed like a sure win for Stetsurenko but Karapetyan showed that he's really improved over the course of this year and gave Stetsurenko a lot of trouble, not allowing him to get inside and peppering him from the outside. Stetsurenko looked to have hurt Karapetyan a few times when he was able to get inside, and ultimately got a razor thin decision victory. For Karapetyan there's no shame in defeat and he put up a really good fight.

At 95kg, another staple in Fights Nights, Ramazan Ramazanov, dominated Holland's Fabian Gondorf over the course of three rounds. Ramazanov was very sharp with his kicking game and might be finding some consistency to his performances. I'd like to see him take a step up in competition against even the likes of Ali Cenik to see how he does.
