"He looks like a 50-year-old drunkard": Russian fighter knocked out at the UFC tournament in Las Vegas. Video
Russian Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fighter Denis Tiuliulin (10-9) suffered a humiliating defeat at UFC Fight Night 232 in Las Vegas (Nevada, USA). The middleweight fight against Englishman Christian Leroy Duncan (9-1) ended early.
Tiuliulin received an invitation to take part in the event 4 days before the start and was unable to prepare properly. From the very beginning, the 28-year-old Leroy had a significant advantage in the ring, smashing his opponent with powerful punches without a chance.
The denouement came in the 2nd round when the more technical English fighter simply knocked the 35-year-old Muscovite into the net.
The Russian athlete was unable to counter his opponent. Trying to go into a blind defense, he missed a lot of "splashes" to the head instead, falling to the ground.
In the comments, Russian fans mocked the level of their compatriot, comparing him to a "50-year-old drunkard."
