Mamed Khalidov in discussions with SRC for December 30 fight

Polish middleweight Mamed Khalidov could be set to return to action this month after an absence from the ring dating back to a May draw against Ryuta Sakurai.

According to sources involved in the negotiations, Five Ounces of Pain has been able to confirm organizational officials are discussing the possibility of the 20-4-2 Khalidov joining the group of Sengoku fighters competing on December 30 at “SRC – Soul of Fight”.

Though no opponent has been mentioned, Khalidov did split a pair of past bouts with SRC middleweight champ Jorge Santiago who hasn’t fought since August and isn’t currently rumored for any specific match-ups in the immediate future, so fans can certainly still hope a “rubber-match” between the two talented fighters may reveal itself in the coming days.

Including a first-round knockout of Santiago in November 2009, Khalidov has finished nineteen of the twenty opponents he’s beaten including nine submissions and ten TKOs. He is 0-1-1 in 2010 but had emerged victorious in 17/18 fights prior (with the exception being a draw).

    Watched the first 2 Khalidov vs Santiago fights and loved em. I hope the 3rd fight will be on Dec 30. I’ve been wanting the rubber match to happen for ages.

    Just thought I would add that if you haven’t see this guy fight you are missing out on one of the most exciting MWs in the world.

    Hello …hello hello.
    Wow there is an echo in here.
    I guess nobody even knows who this guy is.
    Shame.
    He just needs Dana White to tell everybody he’s good and then people will be interested.
    Shame.
