Russian MMA fighter Kharitonov got in car crash during live stream on Instagram
The mixed-style fighter himself uploaded the record. At the time of the accident, he was answering questions from his subscribers.
“We were on our way to the Bellator tournament (to attend Emelianenko vs Sonnen) and got in a car crash. We’re ok, only got some bumps and bruises,” Kharitonov said.
In the commentary to the video, 38-year-old Kharitonov stressed that he was not behind the wheel during the crash; moreover, the accident occurred due to the fault of some "drunken thugs," who crashed into his car.
A day earlier at the Bellator 207 tournament, Sergey Kharitonov knocked out an American Roy Nelson in the first round, having won the 28th victory (16th by knockout) in MMA with six defeats.

Oleg Zaytsev had wide connections within the criminal world and law enforcement agencies. This is being related to an organized crime group headed by Ruslan Kilievich that had allegedly been patronized by a former Federal Security Service Directorate officer Oleg Natalchenko. The crime group had also been a core driver for almost disbanding the criminal investigation department of the police.
