MMA fighter beat police to escape detention in Russia

An MMA fighter from Uzbekistan is on the run after escaping from custody in St.Petersburg, Russia.

Bunyod Tukhtayev, 28, was detained by members of the Russian Anti-Extremism Center last week on doubt trade in fake immigration documents and QR codes used to verify COVID-19 vaccine status. He also faces charges of violence against an official after initially resisting arrest.

The footage shows Tukhtayev resisting arrest by wrestling with two officers on the street. He was eventually tamed and arrested. However, the next day, the MMA fighter staged a more effective escape when he asked to go to the bathroom and then staged the escape as he returned to the preliminary remand cell.

Based on report, Tukhtayev slipped through an unlocked door and was unnoticed by three policemen present at the scene, one of whom was reading a newspaper while the others were working on their computers.

Tukhtayev is still on the run, although Interior Ministry officials are conducting an extensive search for the fighter jet in St.Petersburg. It is not clear if Tukhtayev is still in the city.

Tukhtayev previously had a history as an MMA fighter. Most recently, the Uzbek-born player lost to Dostonbek Dostmurodov at the R3 Fighting Championship event in St.Petersburg earlier this year. MMA fighter beat police to escape detention in Russia
