Round 1: Both fighters come out throwing the right hand, but Arlovski is busier right out of the gate, picking at Kharitonov with leg kick. Arlovski looks to be trying to keep a distance for Kharitonov, trying to stay away from Kharitonov’s inside punching game. Kharitonov stalking Arlovski, trying to land punches, but Arlovski’s hand speed and head movement is much quicker than Kharitonov. Kharitonov gets inside and starts landing the right uppercut, landing several, putting Arlovski on his back on the mat, his nose busted open. A couple more punches with Arlovski back to the mat and Arlovski is out cold.
