Jacare's out of the equation. I think he's having his balls lopped off. He's talking about title shots. Here it is, for the taking. Do you not think I have a bad knee? I've torn my posterior cruciate ligament four days before the final of The Ultimate Fighter and decided not to do surgery. My knee hurts every time I take a step. It clicks like hell every time I walk down stairs, after every training session it's agony. I have to ice it every single day, but I want to fight. I want to be the champion. You make these sacrifices. Jacare wouldn't do it, Chris pulled out, everyone else is testing positive for steroids. Here we are, it's me and I'm going to make the most of it.
Shlemenko is known for his unorthodox striking style, which is difficult to refer to as traditional Muay Thai , Kickboxing , or ARB . Alexander is known for his knee strikes, he also often uses techniques such as the spinning backkick or spinning backfist. As stated in many interviews, he prefers to fight stand-up rather than on the ground, always trying to knock his opponent out. Often esteemed as a pure striker, Shlemenko also has some grappling skills, which he showed by defeating via submission among others Gregory Babene and Zakir Lalashov   (both via triangle choke). Alexander switches from southpaw to orthodox during his fights. In his blog he says, that he can fight equally in both positions.
