    Igor Vovchanchyn. Man I would always love to see the guy fight. He always put on a great fight. He was a bad ass too went a long time with out losing until he got to pride and started fighting some of the bigger name guys. Even when he lost it was a good fight. Too bad he got tired of getting injured and shit. He quit at the right time to started a business and now he can live a great life and have no regrets.

    Hell of a guy

    video hl of him

    "Violence", perfect word to describe Igor's fighting style. Definitely my favourite fighter of all time.

    Best fight from that vid is where Vovchanchyn knocks the guy down with a hard knee, and the guy sits up in lala land, and gets to eat a few more brutal strikes for his efforts. Around the 2 min mark.

  16. One of the greatest tournament fighters ever.

    [y]hTSFl1M-P1U[/y]

    My favorite part of his record:

    Win Igor Guerus KO DNRF - Ukrainian Octagon 3/1/1996 1 1:41
    Win Sergey Sheremet KO DNRF - Ukrainian Octagon 3/1/1996 1 1:27
    Win Oleg Tischenko KO DNRF - Ukrainian Octagon 3/1/1996 1 0:05
    Win Roman Tikunov KO MSG 1996 - Mr. Strong Guy 1996 1/28/1996 1
    Win Sergei Bondarovich KO MSG 1996 - Mr. Strong Guy 1996 1/28/1996 1
    Win Nikolai Yatsuk KO MSG 1996 - Mr. Strong Guy 1996 1/28/1996 1

    He KO'd 6 guys in two 8 man tournaments in 30 days. Sick. Then less than a month later he won the IFC tournament above.

    Ahh good ol' Mr. Strong Guy tournament.
     
  19. I like to imagine the way some of those tournaments took place, given the hilarious results.

    "Hey Alexy. We need man to fight in cage. You owe vodka debt, you get in cage with Mr. Igor. Fight good."
