Fight of the Week: Artur Kyshenko vs. Yodsanklai Fairtex

Yodsanklai Fairtex is currently on a 13 fight winning streak, he has not lost since November of 2011. The last man to defeat the Thai legend was Ukraine's Artur Kyshenko. The pair fought on Rumble of the Kings in an exciting back and forth fight.

For fans who are used to seeing Yodsanklai dominate, they will definitely not see that in this bout. He seemed to be hurt a few times, but was able to survive and then return fire to Kyshenko. Sit back and enjoy the fight. This was definitely one of the bigger wins in Artur Kyshenko's career as a sound game plan showed he could hang with a legend like Yodsanklai.
