“I headed to St. Petersburg for the fights, and my wife sent my things after me. We had a quarrel, and I quickly decided to go there,” Datsik said.
The fighter arrived in the Northern Military District zone in mid-September, signing an open-ended contract with the Russian Ministry of Defense just a few weeks later. He also noted that he managed to make many new acquaintances in the Northern Military District zone.
43-year-old Datsik has seven wins and nine losses in MMA. In August 2023, he managed to win by knockout over a former fighter of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), a Briton Oli Thompson in Moscow.
Despite serving in the Northern Military District zone, Datsik was able to fight on October 28 against a representative of Belarus Peter Romankevich at the REN TV Fight Club tournament. In this fight, Datsik was defeated in the second round by technical knockout.
