Lightweight bout at M-1 Challenge 96: Michel Silva vs. Aleksey Ilyenko

31 July 2018

The tallest lightweight in M-1 Global Michel Silva (19-7-1) is a true knockout artist. Brazilian is not afraid of trading punches with any opponent and in his career he has never been finished. Silva scored 14 wins by KO/TKO and the reach advantage is his key to success.
Alexey Ilyenko (8-0) is one of the most devastating finishers on the roster. 20 years old has never been to the judges in his professional career knocking out his opponents eight times in eight fights, including seven first round KOs! In his M-1 Global debut Alexey landed a crazy high-kick in the third round and finished his opponent with punches.
