Check out this weekend's fight from Sergei Kharitonov. The Pride and Strikeforce veteran took on American fighter Mark Miller in a kickboxing fight at a United Glory show in Moscow, Russia. Kharitonov walked away victorious via 1st round knock out.
This was Kharitonov's first fight since his MMA loss to Josh Barnett in the semi-finals of the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix. The Russian fighter has been dabbling in kickboxing for the past few years, making his K-1 debut against Daniel Ghita in 2009. With the win over Miller, he brings his kickboxing record up to 3-2.

Nice KO from Kharitonov here, who has been improving his stand-up game since his move to Golden Glory gym a few years ago. With Strikeforce putting an end to the Heavyweight division and no discussion of Kharitonov making the move to the UFC, I'm not sure where his career goes from here. Perhaps he can add a veteran presence to the M-1 or Bellator Heavyweight divisions, while also continuing to focus on K-1.
