As UFC plans to make a show in Russia, the promotion continues to sign East-European fighters. In addition to Rustam Khabilov (16-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) who is a Combat Sambo World Champion (2007), European "Army Hand-to-Hand Fight" champion Khabib “The Eagle” Nurmagomedov (19-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) and Strikeforce import Adlan “The Wolf” Amagov (12-2-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC), the UFC has signed Ukranian heavyweight Nikita Krylov (14-0 MMA). The guy is a real deal and has great potential as he is undefeated, none of his professional fights have gone the distance and Krylov is just 20 years old! He has a Karate background and holds a notable victory in his last fight over German Gabriel "Panda" Tampu which happened at M-1 Challenge 38. Check out this fight below.
