World MMA Champion Magomed Ankalaev conquered the light heavyweight throne in Prague, Czech Republic and brought gold back to Russia.


Magomed, what are your feelings after the WMMAA’s World Championship?

-The feelings are the best possible. Gold of this amateur MMA World Championship was my target for a long time.

I had 5 fights and the final one was the most difficult for me. I felt huge responsibility, it was up to me whether the Russian flag will be flying that high. Thanks God, I was able to achieve that.

How many fights did you have this year?

-I had 14 bouts udner MMA rules in 2015 and I was victorious in each of them.

What does the future hold for you now?

-I’m planning to take part in the Russian MMA SuperCup. After that I’ll have a rest which, I believe, I’ll have fully deserved.
