Captures M-1 Challenge title
Russian bantamweight champion Movsar Evloev retains crown

INGUSHETIA, Russia (July 22, 2018) – American featherweight Nate “The Train” Landwehr (pictured to left) kept rollin’, as he stopped Khamzat Dalgiev to capture the M-1 Challenge featherweight title, in last night’s M-1 Challenge 95: Battle in the Mountains 7 main event in Ingushetia, Russia.



In the co-featured event, M-1 Challenge bantamweight champion Movsar Evloev defeated Brazilian challenger Rafael Dias to retain his crown.



A spectacular evening of professional mixed-martial arts fighting, featuring a gifted cast of International fighters from nine different countries, was highlighted by Landwehr’s triumph.



Fighting out of Clarksville, Tennessee, Landwehr (11-2-0) battled defending champion Dalgiev (10-2-0) from start to finish in a terrific match. Landwehr finished off his Russian opponent (pictured below), who has won 10 fights in a row since losing his pro debut, in the second round with an electrifying ground-and-pound attack to secure the coveted M-1 Challenge featherweight title belt.



Movsar (10-0-0) kept his perfect pro record intact – all his MMA fights have been in M-1 Global events – capping the fight in the fifth and final round, when he also used a strong ground-and-pound attack to defeat (pictured below) the battle-tested Dias to retain his M-1 Challenge bantamweight crown.



Khamzat Aushev (12-3-0), of Russia, used a rear naked choke to submit Jorge Rodrigues (38-11-0), of Brazil, midway through the opening round in a fight contested at a 158-pound catchweight.



In another fight contested at a 158-pound catchweight, Magoomdkamil Malikov (6-0-0), of Russia, won a unanimous decision over Brazilian invader Eduardo Correia Costa (9-1-0) in battle of previously unbeatens.


Azerbaijan heavyweight Zaur Gadzhibabayev (7-2-0) took a unanimous decision victory from Yuri Protsemko (15-7-1), of Ukraine.

On the undercard, Russian heavyweight Oleg Popov (3-1-0), Russian featherweight Musa Khamkhoev (4-2-0) and Russian bantamweight Zalimbeg Omarov (10-1-0), won unanimous decisions against, respectively, previously undefeated Russian fighters Adam Bogatyrev (6-1-0) and Alexander “The Viking” Kutafin (5-2-0), and past M-1 title challenger Alexey Nevsorov (12-4-0), of Russia.


Russian middleweight Beckhan Mankiev (3-0-0) locked in a rear naked choke for a win by submission over pro-debuting Kazakh Mikhail Akilov (0-1-0) in the first round, Russian welterweight Movsar Bokov (5-1-0) won a three-round majority decision from Belek Abdizhaparov (4-1-0), of Kyrgyzstan, and American bantamweight Edward Massey (4-1-0) had an impressive M-1 Global debut, using a devastating kick to knockout Mate Sanikidze (3-1-0), of Georgia.
Russian lightweight Temerlan Ozdoev (4-0-0) and Kazakhstan featherweight Sergey Morozov (12-4-0) used ground-and-pound attacks for first-round technical knockout victories, respectively, versus Sado “The Panther” Ucar (9-7-0), of Turkey, and Ukrainian Zaka “Lezgin” Fatullazade (11-5-0).
