Fighter Bio


Igor Zinoviev (born 1967) is a Russian mixed martial arts fighter. He competed in the Extreme Fighting organization, holding the middleweight title until their demise, then moved to the Ultimate Fighting Championship. He is currently coaching the Chicago Red Bears in the International Fight League.[1]

Zinoviev grew up in St. Petersburg, Russia. Sickly and weak as a youth, he swam for exercise, becoming skilled enough that he entered a Russian sports academy. There, he trained in boxing, judo, and sambo. Like many Russian mixed martial artists, he received further training in the Russian military and police forces.
