This morning (Sat. September 15, 2018) the UFC made its debut in Moscow, Russia.

In the main event, Aleksei Oleinik pulled off an amazing first-round submission victory over fellow UFC veteran Mark Hunt. The pair had a nice little slugfest early on, but once Oleinik got the action to the ground, it was all over for “The Super Samoan.”
