UFC Fight Night 136: Hunt vs. Oleinik marks the first time the Ultimate Fighting Championship has promoted an event in Russia. Of course, they are targeting the capitol city of Moscow.
Though Hunt at odds with the UFC brass over how they do business, to the point that he has an active lawsuit going through the legal process, he has proven to be a big draw, particularly overseas.
Oleinik is Ukranian born, but has been Russian citizen since 2015, so that match-up should prove to be a solid one for the promotion’s Russian debut.
In addition to the main event, Jan Błachowicz faces Nikita Krylov in a pivotal light heavyweight bout, and popular former heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski meets Shamil Abdurakhimov, also on the main card.
