Sergei's a Russian fighter, who fights out of the Russian Top Team. He was hyped as a Sambo guy, but he used his striking more than anything. He had a good chin, as well.
Sergei had a few fights before the 04 GP, but they weren't that memorable. He exploded onto the scene at Total Elimination, and KO'ed Ninja, of course. He went on to utterly destroy Semmy Schilt in, what I feel, was his best performance to date. He lost to Nog in the GP, but he looked pretty good in that fight, and it didn't hurt his rep at all. He demolished Pedro Rizzo in 05, and then beat Werdum by split at Fully Loaded. His career went to rubbish when he was severly beaten by Overeem at Dreamers in 06. Sergei was sort of exposed as a guy who couldn't defend knee's from sidemount. From then on, he got beat by Aleks and had a really, really horrible showing against some guy named Mike Russow. I have no clue where he is nowadays.
