ACA submits yet another top-notch card of international talent, this time in the Belarusian capital of Minsk. Capped off by a heavyweight title fight, the event features male fighters from eleven countries. MMASucka is monitoring the event and brings you live ACA 132 results right here.
It’s not a common sight to see a Tennessee man holding a belt in a European promotion. Nevertheless, Tony Johnson Jr. (15-5-1) looks to make the second defense of his belt against a more than formidable foe. Mukhamad Vakhaev (10-4-1) is a former ACA heavyweight champion who technically never lost the belt, making the headliner somewhat of a title unification bout. Vakhaev won the belt in February of last year, but soon after vacated it when he tested free agency at the end of his ACA contract.
After re-signing with the ACA, Vakhaev won a non-title return bout against UFC veteran Raphael Pessoa in August by first-round TKO. Owning wins over Tanner Boser and Denis Goltsov, Vakhaev will look to become one of the best heavyweight prospects in Europe. Johnson, on the other hand, is finding his best career success after stints in ONE and Bellator. He’s put away Dmitriy Poberezhets and Daniel Omielanczuk by knockout en route to the ACA belt.
The co-main event features two heavyweight looking to build a win streak as Denis Smoldarev battles Michal Martinek. Smoldarev (16-8) and Martinek (9-2) are ranked seventh and tenth, respectively, in the division by the official ACA rankings.
On the rest of the card, Bulgarian Nikola Dipchikov battles former Bellator middleweight Chris Honeycutt, while UFC veteran Levan Makashvili fights Brazilian Herdeson Batista.
