On Thursday, May 24, M-1 Global hosted an event at the M-1 Arena in St. Petersburg, Russia, for M-1 Challenge 92: Kharitonov vs. Vyazigin.
In the evening’s main event, Strikeforce and Bellator veteran Sergei Kharitonov initially pushed his winning streak to five fights over fellow Russian Anton Vyazigin, who had previously won six of his past seven fights. However, upon later review, the commission overturned the original decision and declared the fight a no-contest.
In the night’s main-card action, flyweight champ Aleksander Dosalchuk made the first defense of his belt against interim titleholder Arman Ashimov, former welterweight title challenger Sergey Romanov met Brazil’s Tiago Varejão, and UFC veteran Mickael Lebout fought Pavel Gordeev, who was undefeated under the promotional banner.
