"Russian Hammer" pounds his way onto the bodogFIGHT PPV

By Tim Leidecker

PRIDE veteran Roman "The Russian Hammer" Zentsov successfully made his way onto the second bodogFIGHT pay-per-view called "Clash of the Nations," which takes place on April 14 at the Ice Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia.

On the third episode of the second season of bodogFIGHT's weekly qualification show, he took out French Canadian kickboxer Kristof Midoux by knockout near the end of the second round.

The fight was even in the first round but then Zentsov, a teammate of PRIDE heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko, moved it up a notch and started peppering the "Hurricane" with right hooks, high kicks and a left haymaker for the big knockout at 4:12 of the second round.

At the pay-per-view he will now face undefeated American Kickboxing Academy fighter Cain Velasquez, who dispatched his opponent Jeremiah Constant even quicker at 4:00 of the first round.
