Alekseev has been working on his inside game which was always his weakness but he beat up Licina worse than Cunningham or YPH did and entirely on the inside and just got a draw with Arslan. He fought the whole fight on the inside and was the stronger man backing Firat up, now having seen how Arslan bullied Huck Sasha's performance was quite impressive. Hope he recovers and we can see him against Masternak or Huck.
