Aleks is the man, point blank. He rocks a mullet, has a hot chick with him at all times, looks like he just rolled out of bed and likes to punch people in their grills. The guy has rarely been in a boring fight. His boxing is some of my favorite in MMA. Nice hand speed, good movement, yeah, Aleks rules.
My top 5 favorite AE fights.
1. vs Ricardo Morais (Bushido 6).
Many will say the Thompson fight's better, but I disagree. This IS the Aleks fight to watch, as he brutally punches Morais in the face, like, 40 times in the span of 15 seconds. Freakin' amazing hand speed for a chubby dude. Morais is dead, yo, DEAD!
2. vs James Thompson (High Octane).
A classic. Aleks looks quite bored before the fight, while Thompson is ready to kill someone. They slug it out and Thompson loses in hilarious fashion.
3. vs Rene Rooze (Bushido Europe).
Fast Aleks fights are awesome and this is no different. Rooze looks like he's about to piss his pants before he gets brutally whomped.
4. vs Sergei Kharitonov (Final Conflict 2006).
Okay, while Aleks didn't exactly kick a ton of ass, he did knee Sergei in the face a lot. Sergei was looking quite good until he got stupid. Nice win for Aleks, his best win ever.
5. vs Eric Pele (Bodog).
Aleks beats up a fat guy. Gotta love it.
So yeah, re-live your favorite Aleks fights and memories. Even though he lost, I loved his performance against Josh Barnett. That first round was awesome, and Aleks' stand-up looked really good. Nice hand speed, good fake-outs. He gave Barnett trouble, and it ruled.
I want my Aleks punchy face action! I want it NOW!
