Thx, Steve. I guess his DOB is a typo on their site?

Oh yeah, nice to see you in Grappling.

That was my typo....LOL! I copied from the website :o)

Thanks. Grappling has been very supportive of us. I am very thankful to them.

Michael and Doug seem to be good people.

Dimitri looks VERY different in recent pictures.

Much more matured! LOL

Is that Michael, Doug and/or Dimitri?

I don't know about mIchael or Doug. Dima and Dimitri are the same name.


Joseph, Dimitry just fought in the Battle of Brooklyn. he won the USKBA United States Super Middleweight Muay Thai Championship there. there are plenty of recent photos of him up at http://www.battleofbrooklyn.com/apps/photos/fall_2005/default.aspx


I'd add he and Eric Utsch were supposed to fight in the tournament, until Eric's injury.

Uhm... Eric was to fight in what tournament?

Eric and Dimitri are scheduled to fight this Friday in NYC.

they were scheduled to fight for that same title in the BAttle of Brooklyn. Eric was injured prior to the fight sparring at Fairtex from a headbutt.

Results are in... Shirganov over Utsch by UD.

LOL... yeah, that photo must be from his first fight at 14. A little deceiving.

Hey Joseph, do you represent Utsch?

I do not officially represent any fighter.
