Another World MMA Champion out of Russia Magomed Yunusilau (-65,8 kg) mulls over the future

Tell about your experience at the World Championship in Prague.

-Extreme happiness. First of all I was not sure I would be able to participate because of injuries but my coaches, friends and family helped me gather fysically and mentally. I flew to Prague and showed the best result possible.

How many bouts did you have there?

-I had 4 fights. The first one (1/8) went the whole distance. My opponent from Colombia was really determined, he would not give up, it was a hard-fought battle. In the next fights I finished all three opponents.

What are the future plans?

– First of all I need to heal the injuries, it’s revalidation time. I’ll have a break the first post World Championship week and then I’ll focus on my health. I have issues with my back and a knee. And then, God bless, I’ll get back in business within 2-3 months.

I intend to transfer to professional MMA competition. We have great coaches and the team that are highly qualified and able to facilitate in my transition. I’m sure I’ll be OK.
