This was mentioned by Jas in another thread but no one responded. What do you guys think? This should be a great fight, and I hope Kharitonov comes in healthy. Sergei by GnP.
Aleksander Emelianenko vs. Sergei Kharitonov
Sergei's GnP vs. Sammy Schlitt was brutal. I don't see Aleks succuming to anything like that. This will definitely be a battle. Eastern Europe is well represented in Pride, damn.
Yeah, Semmy's face looked like ground beef. Sergei took an even worse beating from Overeem. His shoulder was jacked and he could not do anything. I felt terrible for him he was taking brutal shot after brutal shot. He is a f*ckin tough dude. If Sergei stands with Aleks I think he will be in trouble. IMO Aleks has the best hands in MMA(heavyweight).
This is definitely an exciting addition to an already great card. I'm unsure of who to pick. Aleks seems pretty good, but hasn't really beat anyone yet. I agree with Alexander that A.E. has the advantage standing.
Aleks' hands were impressive as hell when he fought that huge English goof. He weathered a ridiculous charge, and in the midst of the flurry he landed punch after punch after punch...Originally Posted by Alexander
He looked impressive against Crocop too, until Crocop landed a mean combination just before the famous head kick.
