with another triumph just three weeks later at One FC 6, knocking
out reigning middleweight King of Pancrase Ryo
Kawamura in 4:40.
Four years younger than his Dutch opponent, Khalidov has lost just
once in the last seven years. Since his failed Sengoku middleweight
title bid against Jorge
Santiago in 2010, Khalidov has gone 5-0-1, finishing UFC
veterans in each of his last five fights. The former KSW light
heavyweight champion most recently competed on May 12, knocking out
Wallace in 1:55 at KSW 19.
