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.

A new addition to the UFC's welterweight ranks.
Fortunately for me, the UFC hasn't taken it upon themselves to sign every available prospect on the market this week, leaving a little more time to focus on just who they have picked up. Namely, former RFA welterweight Alan Jouban, who was made an official part of the roster on Tuesday, July 8th with the announced fight between him and Seth Baczynski at UFC Fight Night: Bader vs. St. Preux on August 16th in Bangor, Maine.
