Must See: Arlovski’s Debut, Morais Pwns 32-Man Tournament

Some classic MMA goodness from the ’90s: First off is Andrei Arlovski‘s unsuccessful pro MMA debut against Viacheslav Datsik (above), which went down in St. Petersburg, Russia, at the M-1 MFC World Championship on 4/9/1999; props to MMA Fight Girls for digging up the video. Fight starts at the 2:11 mark, and the Pitbull gets put to sleep about six minutes later. Arlovski would return to the cage a year later at the M-1 MFC European Championship, where he smoked Michael Tielrooy and Roman Zentsoz in a four-man bracket and caught the attention of the UFC.

Below is an absolutely insane video of Absolute Fighting Championship 1, a one-day, 32-man vale tudo tournament — yes, 32-man tournament — that took place in Moscow on 9/25/1995. Enormous future PRIDE fighter Ricardo “The Mutant” Morais made his MMA debut that day, stopping four opponents via strikes (all in less than two minutes apiece), before choking out Mikhail Illoukhine in the final. I guarantee it’ll be the most hardcore thing you see all week.

Am I the only one who was rofling on how the Morais video was edited? Guy's who had no idea how to fight getting brutally bashed for 3 seconds and then the bracket sign comes up right before they take the fatal punch.

Damn. They only showed one of Igor's knock out wins against Lima. The Ukraine Freight Train was a machine!

Andrey Orlovsky got KTFO so bad he started spelling his name Andrei Arlovski.
Kevin might be onto something with the Samson hair.

I have been saying to my friends and on forums that AA is weaker with no hair and this video proves it. Thank You! He was sporting the long hair and beard when he was champ and lost the belt when he cut his hair. He now has his Samson hair back and the Leonidas beard which is why he stopped Rothwell. Unstoppable!! No hair and no beard is no good. This guy will always be number 1 to me!!! How's taste my PEEPEEPEE!!!!
