Tim Leidecker of Sherdog is reporting that Oleg Taktarov will be fighting for the first time since 1998 when he takes on fellow UFC veteran John Marsh at BodogFight: Russia vs USA II at the Khodynka Arena in Moscow, Russia on November 30th.
The fight will serve as the main event.
Taktarov has not fought since submitting Mick Tierney and Moti Horenstein in the same night in February 1998. Over the course of his short but eventful career, Taktarov racked up wins over Dave Beneteau, Tank Abbott, and Marco Ruas, all under the UFC banner.
Marsh is 0-1 so far in 2007, being stopped by Chad Griggs at the IFL’s Houston show back in February. Marsh owns wins Travis Fulton and Wesley Correira, and has gone the distance with Vladimir Matyushenko, Jeremy Horn, and Ricco Rodriguez.
