Fighters react to Aleksei Oleinik submitting Mark Hunt at UFC Moscow

Aleksei Oleinik continued his rise up the UFC heavyweight rankings tonight in Moscow defeating veteran Mark Hunt via first-round submission.

Oleinik was able to stun Hunt in the opening round with a looping punch and shorty after that strike he was able to drag “The Super Samoan” down to the canvas.

From there, Oleinik quickly transitioned to Hunt’s back where he locked in both hooks.

Mark Hunt tried his best to survive but Aleksei Oleinik was able to lock in a rear-naked choke that promptly forced the feared knockout specialist to tapout.
