  • Zavurov Dominates M-1 Challenge Title Bout

    While the M-1 Challenge 22 in Moscow, Russia, today was an event defined by surprises, from Yana Kunitskaya's lightening fast TKO of Cindy Dandois to Pat Bennett's controversial draw, none were more impressive than Shamil Zavurov's dominant victory over Spain's Abner Lloveras.* *Editor's note: We were also impressed that Oleg Savitsky and Eric Nichols actually made good announcers. Zavurov's bout with Lloveras was predicted to be the most competitive bout of the evening, with both fighters boasting some of the best showings in the organization since coming to M-1.
