PRIDE FC and Strikeforce veteran Sergei Kharitonov returns to kickboxing this Friday, when he meets Mark Miller in Moscow, Russia. Last seen in kickboxing action at United Glory 14, Kharitonov scored a first-round knockout victory over current UFC Heavyweight Might Mo. Below is footage of Kharitonov’s unorthodox preparation for the bout, during which he visits a local meat locker to batter some pig carcasses.

The show will mark the first of United Glory’s “Glory World Series 2012,” and will be headlined by four-time K-1 World Grand Prix champion, Semmy Schilt, who makes his return against the formidable Brice Guidon. Catch the action streaming live at GFL.TV this Friday morning (March 23rd) at 10am ET/7am PT.
