Tyson ‘The Anti-Hero’ Jeffries faced feared Russian striker at M-1 Challenge 26, which aired live on Showtime last night at 11 p.m. ET/PT (Delayed on the West Coast).


“The European fighters who participated in the March card set an extremely high bar this time out. Guseinov has been very vocal about making this an entertaining battle” said M-1 Global Director of Operations Evgeni Kogan.

Team Quest’s Jeffries won the 2010 M-1 Selection Americas tournament last September with a spectacular triangle-armbar victory over Mike Geurin. Last night Jeffries was coming back from a crushing defeat against the division’s newly crowned champion Magomed Sultanakhmedov.

Action-Force Fight Team’s Guseinov was coming off back-to-back losses against Beslan Esaev and Luigi Fioravanti. Known for his deadly spinning back-kicks and high kicks, Guseinov did not dissapoint.
