OREL, Russia (August 5, 2015) – Former M-1 Challenge light heavyweight champion Viktor Nemkov positioned himself for a rematch with the fighter who took his title belt last year, Stephan Puetz, by winning a three-round decision in tonight’s M-1 Challenge 60: Battle in Orel main event against Maro “Mean Machine” Perak at Grimm Arena in Orel, Russia.

 

Nemkov (22-5-0, 4 KO/TKO, 10 SUB), fighting out of Russia, was the 2011 World Combat Sambo champion. He lost his first M-1 Challenge light heavyweight title fight in 2011 by third-round submission (Gogoplata neck crank)) to Vinny Magalhaes at M-1 Challenge 25.   Nemkov rebounded in 2013 at M-1 Challenge 43, defeating Vasily Baboch by way of a second-round submission (arm lock) for the vacant M-1 Challenge light heavyweight championship.

 

In his first title defense (March 14, 2014), Nemkov lost a five-round split decision to Puetz in a major upset. Since losing to Puetz, Nemkov had fought only once going into tonight’s fight due to a series of injuries that kept him sidelined the past 1 ½ years.

 

Perak (23-6-1, 12 KO/TKO, 7 SUB), fighting out of Croatia, made his light heavyweight debut versus Nemkov having dropped down one weight class, after campaigning strictly as a heavyweight during his professional career.

 

In the co-feature, Russian light heavyweight Maksim Futin (5-2-0, 4 KO/TKO, 1 SUB) locked on a rear naked choke on Poland’s Marcin Zontek (14-9-0, 6 KO/TKO, 5 SUB) for a first-round victory by submission.

 

Also fighting on the main card, Russian featherweight Zalimbek Omarov (5-1-1, 1 KO/TKO, 2 SUB) won a three-round decision over Brazilian Marcelo Costa (11-3-1, 3 KO/TKO, 5 SUB), Russian bantamweight Evgeni Lazukov (8-2-0, 2 KO/TKO, 1 SUB) won when the corner of Algerian Elias Boudegzdame (9-4-0, 1 KO/TKO, 8 SUB) stopped the bout midway through the second round, and Alexey “Ataman” Makhno (10-3-0, 4 KO/TKO, 1 SUB) won a majority three-round decision from Zulfikar Usmanov (7-5-1, 1 KO/TKO, 4 SUB) in a fight between a pair of Russian lightweights.

 

All fight fights on the preliminary card ended in the opening round. Russian welterweight Denis Genyuk (7-4-0) defeated Croatian Josip “Arti” Artukovic (11-5-0), Georgian lightweight Raul Tutarauli (5-2-0) stopped Italian Valeriu Mircea (4-2-0) and Azerbaijan middleweight Telekh Nadzhaafadze (4-1-0) beat Russian Ivan Zakabunya (1-1-0), all in first-round knockouts via punches.

 

Also fighting on the preliminary card, Spanish lightweight Javier Fuentas (7-2-0) used a rear naked choke to force Russian Alexander Sankov (2-2-0) into a submission, while Russian bantamweight Alexander Kolesnik‘s shoulder hold forced Americana shoulder hold forced Ukrainian Dmitry Shvetc (2-2-0) to tap out.
