    Right now at this moment, how many Sambo fighters are in the UFC besides Khabib?

    Also, how come Sambo wasn't training Conor instead of Dillon Danis?

    Hell yeah!

    Taktarov is a legend and should be a hall of famer. He had a boxing match in real life against the guy that played Ivan Drago who the actor is a kyokushin fighter.

    Most Russian/Central Asian fighters currently fighting in UFC, Bellator have a sambo/judo base (although they cross train in other grappling martial arts.)

    From the way he fights, I always thought Zabit was some kind of crazy Kung Fu master :D

    He actually is

    About Kung Fu boarding school:

    I have been training since I was a child. I was studying at a closed school, we weren’t allowed to go home. We were allowed home only one day at the end of the month. We were training three times a day. I went to this school for 10-12 years. It was like a pris… closed school, there was nothing there except discipline, food and three practices per day.

    I very seldomly saw my parents, then I moved to Makhachkala (capital of Dagestan) where I started wrestling with one of the best coaches in the world Mansur Chakaev.
