The UFC is headed to Moscow, Russia for the first time ever for UFC Fight Night 136. The main event will feature a combined age of 85 as MMA veterans Mark Hunt and Aleksei Oleinik will face off. For Mark Hunt, it will be his 17th UFC appearance and just the 8th for Oleinik. Regardless of their age, both fighters have shown no sign of slowing down. They’ve both proved that they still have what it takes to finish a fight.
In the co-main event, Nikita Krylov will make his return to the UFC after a short stint away. He will return to a tough opponent as he will take on fifth-ranked light heavyweight, Jan Blachowicz. Krylov spent a short time away from the UFC in Fight Nights Global where he went 2-0, 1-0 in another promotion. During his time in the UFC, he had gone 6-3 before leaving after a loss to Misha Cirkunov. He will look to earn a big win upon his return over Blachowicz.
