    Default Report: UFC picks up Russo-Ukranian heavyweight Alexey Oleinik

    http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2013/11/2...sambo-mma-news

    Fresh off a victory over Mirko Filipovic at Legend Part 2: Invasion, the UFC has picked up another Sambo slinging MMA vet.

    Superkarate.ru reports the UFC has signed longtime Russo-Ukranian heavyweight, Alexey Oleinik. Oleinik, who has bounced a bit between heavyweight and light heavyweight throughout his career, will enter the UFC on a nine fight winning streak including victories over Dion Staring, Jeff Monson, Tony Lopez, and most recently Mirko Filipovic. At age 36, he's one of the more traveled vets on the MMA circuit, holding an overall record of 48-9-1.

    He's been on a fucking roll as of late and should have a decent run since the division is so shallow, until they throw him in there against the upper echelon. Good wrestlers and BJJ take him out, but I think the lower tier of the division gets guzzled.
