Previously, Souza performed at the ASA.

On August 26, Vladivostok will host an international tournament in modern pankration MFP 241. The famous Russian fighter of mixed martial arts Sergey Kharitonov will perform in the main event of the event. The rival of the legend will be the Brazilian Rogers Souza, nicknamed the Tiger.

The fight is expected to be held at outright weight and last three rounds.

“Sergey Kharitonov is one of the brightest fighters in the world of MMA. It is a great honor for us that he competes in the Cup of the Governor of the Primorsky Territory. Sergey has been to Vladivostok and the Far East many times as an honored guest, but as a fighter he will come here for the first time. In addition to the tournament, he will also hold a master class with the Primorye athletes and share his rich experience with them, ”said Dmitry Konkov, head of the Federation of Modern Pankration of Russia.

The last time we saw Kharitonov in battle was over a year and a half ago, in January 2022. Paratrooper then met Tyrone Spong as part of Eagle FC and won via TKO. After that, Sergey had a boxing match with Deontay Wilder’s trainer Malik Scott at the REN TV Fight Club super series tournament and also won. However, the veteran apparently decided that he was doing better in MMA.

Kharitonov’s opponent on August 11 was originally expected to be Brazilian Thiago Cardoso, but this fight was postponed to September and then the opportunity to fight Rogers Souza arose.

Tiger isn’t the most notable MMA fighter. His professional career is limited to performances in various small-town promotions, but there were big names in his career. Sousa began 2016 fighting in various Brazilian states, helping him quickly amass an 8-0 record. In the status of an undefeated rising star, he made it to the ACA tournament in 2019 and suffered his first loss there, at the hands of Kazbek Saidaliev. And four months later, Rogers played in the TKO league and lost again. This time the future interim UFC champion Cyril Gan became the opponent of the Brazilian.

In general, Tiger liked the performances in the ACA, and he began to frequently visit Russia for a variety of tournaments and a variety of leagues: M-1, Open FC, RCC and the same ACA. True, not to say that the Brazilian was successful. Alikhan Vakhaev, Kirill Kornilov and Sergei Bilostenny scored it in one round.

Sousa’s overall fighting level is still pretty mediocre, he doesn’t stand out with any special abilities. There’s some good Brazilian jiu-jitsu and decent punching technique, which is generally not surprising for a basic kickboxer. Perhaps this could become a problem for Kharitonov. With age, the skydiver has slowed down, and Rogers is 34 years old, so there is reason to be afraid of him. By the way, according to the Tapology portal, Tigre is considered number 12 among all Brazilian heavyweights. However, this is also explained by the fact that there are not many really strong fighters from Brazil in this weight class. Because of this, Souza became the champion of Jungle Fight and Centurion, and also won sambo.

Russian MMA veterans suck all the hype out of young fighters:

Veterans are killing Russian MMA. The young have to flee across the ocean

Now Souza arrives after the victory over Genadi Zhorzholiani, where he was proclaimed champion of the Centurion league. The fight took place at the end of May and ended with the Brazilian’s opponent refusing to continue the fight.

Not to say that the Tiger is a convenient option to bring Kharitonov back into the fight. Due to a good strike, Rogers will be the favorite. Also, he is younger than Sergei and has a better chance of going the full distance of the fight. However, let’s see what the Paratrooper will show us.
