Welterweight title bout at M-1 Challenge 90: Alexey Kunchenko vs. Alexander Butenko.

28 February 2018

Ex-lightweight champion Alexander Butenko (45-12-3) is one of the most experienced Russian MMA fighters, who moved up to welterweight to become even more successful. Having three victories with one draw in the new weight class Butenko got a title shot and opportunity to become the champion in one more division.
 
Undefeated welterweight champion Alexey Kunchenko has a perfect record of 17 victories in 17 fights including three title defenses. In the last fight he finished his opponent in less than 3 minutes and made the fans wonder who else would dare to challenge the undisputed champion. Finishing 77% of his opponents he is going to meet another finisher with 69% finish rate and this let us think that the title bout won’t last 25 minutes.
 
Puncher vs. submission master – the main event of M-1 Challenge 90 will be one of the best MMA fights you have ever seen!
