Vladimir Mineev returned to the NWO Zone after defeating a former Bellator champion

Reigning AMC Fight Nights middleweight champion Vladimir Mineev, who the day before successfully defended his “REN TV Fight Club” title in a kickboxing match against former Bellator champion Rafael Carvalho, immediately after the fight went to the NWO zone, where he is serving as a volunteer.

“The next two months will look like what two months looks like for a private in the NWO zone,” Mineyev said in a post-fight interview in response to a reporter’s pertinent question. “Should be back tomorrow. Now finishing the interview, and will go. I’ve been preparing for this battle for a month, I haven’t seen my wife and daughter during this time”

Mineyev also explained why his face showed displeasure when the Brazilian was unable to continue the fight after missing a left jab in the second round.

“Kind of just separated, just got a feel for the ring – I thought we’d work some more. I felt like he could have kept going. I didn’t even emphasize it, just threw my arm out and I felt like there was nothing supernatural about that punch. Like a kitty paw hit him.”
