Russian Fighter Gets Eagle Kicked At Hardcore FC Press Conference

An MMA brawl is going viral on social media, but the fight didn’t happen in the octagon.

At a Hardcore FC press conference in Russia, Tamerlan Temirov took a shot at Alexander Yanshin during the faceoff. The two fighters then continued to take shots at one another, but were eventually separated and returned to their seats on opposite ends.

But it didn’t end there as Yanshin took a running jump at Temirov and eagle kicked him, sending him backwards.

That kick could take you back to the night Khabib Nurmagomedov submitted Conor McGregor. Nurmagomedov jumped out of the cage and eagle kicked McGregor’s coach Dillon Danis.

It seems this isn’t uncommon, however, for this Russian MMA promotion.

Another clip on Twitter showed a different presser where one fighter refused to let go of the other’s hand, leading to a left-handed punch that made the other stumbling towards the floor.

Other fighters weighed in on the viral video like Michael Chiesa who was involved in a physical altercation of his own with Kevin Lee in a pre-fight presser.
