Prosecutor requests two years for MMA champion
MOSCOW, August 8 - RAPSI. The prosecutor has requested two years in prison for mixed martial artist Rasul Mirzayev, who is believed to have killed Moscow resident Ivan Agafonov after a fight outside a nightclub in the capital, the Zamoskvoretsky District Court told the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI/rapsinews.com) on Wednesday.
According to the investigation, Mirzayev hit Agafonov after an argument outside a nightclub in August 2011. He was taken to the hospital where he died several days later without regaining consciousness.
The defense was insisting on reclassifying the charges against the martial artist, asserting that Agafonov died as a result of his hitting the ground as opposed to Mirzayevs blow.
