An athlete, who has been engaged in combat sambo before, taking mixed martial arts, is considered for the second decade to be one of the world best fighters in MMA, the most dynamically developing kind of sport.
Before 2010, Fedor Emelyanenko has been an unquestioned leader, but now Habib Nurmagomedov is the UFC champion who has not lost a single fight. He ranks second in the UFC ranking among the best fighters irrespective of weight categories.
By the way, Fedor Emelyanenko said that it was combat sambo that provided the basis for his brilliant career.
With the purpose to support this kind of sport, our Fund became one of the partners of the Baikal Cup. ТThe tournament will be held from 2 to 5 September. Sportsmen of the following weight categories: 52 kg, 57 kg, 62 kg, 68 kg, 74 kg, 82 kg, 90 kg, 100 kg and 100+ kg will take part in it. After the tournament sportsmen will go on a tour to Baikal – one of the most beautiful lakes on the planet.
And during the tournament we’ll probably have a chance to meet an unknown sportsman for the first time who might become one of the best fighters on the planet in 2029.
