About Alexandrovich Unleashed

"How much can you know about yourself if you've never been in a fight? I don't want to die without any scars."

Welcome to Alexandrovich Unleashed.

My name is Alexander. I'm a former NHB/MMA fighter. 7-2. Russian.

My first NHB/MMA fight was in late December of 1998 at a night club in Ybor City. I fought a guy more experienced, who outweigh me by 30+lbs. At the time everyone was doing BJJ and not many wanted to stand up and strike, other than throw haymakers and brawl. Due to my high school wrestling and strong boxing/kickboxing experience, I was able to defend his takedowns, escape all submissions and then stand up to punish him on the feet. This won me my first fight and I got paid zero dollars from it.

For next 10+ years I've fought all over Florida. From bars, to night clubs, to barns and various martial art gyms.

At the time I fought term MMA didn't exist. It was called NHB or Vale Tudo. It was the most underground shit you've seen. No athletic commissions, no doctors, no medical checkups. You just show up and you fight whoever is willing to fight you. For nearly all my fights I had to fight someone who was bigger than me by 25-50lbs.

I never fought for money. In fact in the entire 10+ years fighting, I got paid only once. A total of $450 and that was for my last fight which I won with a walk-off head kick KO.

For me it was never about the money. I did it because something inside me said I had to do it. So I did.

Fighting during this time was the Wild West of pre-MMA. It developed my life philosophy and training methods I use to this day.

I've wanted to create this website blog for some time. It is finally a reality.

The focus of Alexandrovich Unleashed Website/Blog is: Training, Fighting, Mindset.

  • How to make your training fight specific
  • Drills and techniques that will make you fight better, grip tighter, kick harder and punch faster
  • Developing the fighter's mentality inside and outside the ring/cage

You don't have to fight but you should at least train like a fighter. Make everything you do functional and fight specific. Your training needs to benefit you when it matters.

Although I recommend everyone gets a few fights in the ring/cage.

You will never truly know yourself and what you are capable of until you train for a fight and have to show up to fight.
