The UFC went to Prague, Czech Republic today, and as usual with these international-regional shows, there were a lot of names on the card that had no meaning to fans like us. But there were a few recognizable faces near the top of the card. Like Gian Villante – remember him?
Yeah, Chris Weidman’s buddy has been banging it out in the Octagon for a while now, and with mixed results. But he’s good for scrap when the UFC wants to ensure, so welcome to Prague, Gian. Now start swinging.
Opponent Michal Oleksiejczuk was a Polish striker who beat Khalil Roundtree in his UFC debut but went awry with the drug test. I guess you could say this would be his “do over”.
So yeah, this one lasted about a minute and a half, with Villante kicking and punching and landing here and there, and Oleksiejczuk saying, “Grrrrr, give me flesh,” and blasting the American with a killer body blow. Villante took about two steps, then crumpled, and that was all she wrote.

Now we’ll see if Oleksiejczuk passes his drug test…
