Anyone seen Russian Rustam Khailov fight MMA? @onefcmma

Okay…I’m getting excited for the results of the Jakarta Indonesia One FC event coming up in Feb.–a bit disappointed I’m going to miss attending the event live.

As if Ole Laursen Vs. Felipe Enomot wasn’t enough…One FC has scouted some of the top talent in the world.

A noticeable standout on the card is M-1 veteran Rustam Khabilov from Russia.  Listed as 12-1 on Sherdog, he’s a former Sambo Champion, and I’ve heard he currently trains in the USA with Greg Jackson’s team in New Mexico.

Khabilov will face a tough opponent in Rodrigo ”Ximbica” Ribeiro.  Ximbica is a veteran of over 15 professional fights and a BJJ Black Belt.  Having fought my former instructor Fabio Negao in Brazil, he is a natural 185lber dropping down to Welterweight.

I’m excited to see this Russian prospect as I am anxious to see how good his 12-1 record really is!
