wait a minute, he might already be in negotiations




- As far as we know, are now negotiating with the UFC.

- Yes, Fight Nights - Well done. Conducted serious negotiations, and in early summer will sign a contract. Until the summer, I intend to spend a couple of fights. My record for more than 20 wins, but my official record of 5 wins and 1 loss. And you have to spend at least another two or three fights. My main goal - is title UFC. I would like to please their fans belt UFC. I've been striving for this. I believe in our strength and that all will be well.


- Is your favorite fighters in mixed martial arts? Maybe for someone else equal?

- Align with our Russian fighter Fedor Emelianenko. For several years, he may be said, did not let anybody breathe. I like him as a fighter. He's very cool. I also like the American Randy Couture.

and heres another comment "We are friends with Ali Bagautinov and spoke to him recently, he is ''good to go'' to the UFC but he wont sign just yet cuz he wants to compete in 1 more combat sambo world championship. If everything goes well he should be in the UFC sometimes later at the end of this year."


well, mission accomplished

Bagautinov is fun to watch and an absolute beast. Finnish flyweight prospect Mikael Silander (8-1) gave him a good fight in june and I think Silander will end up in the UFC in the next couple of years

these russians and their slams... incredible.  They need to come to the states, learn what's missing and open up gyms back home.
