Bakhtiyar Abbasov Signs With ONE FC, Set to Debut on May 30 in Singapore

Against an opponent to be named at ONE FC: "Honor & Glory."

One of the top middleweight prospects from the former Soviet Union has signed with ONE FC and is set to make his promotional debut on May 30, 2014, in Singapore. Bakhtiyar Abbasov is currently riding a nine-fight winning streak and looks set to be an immediate contender for the 185-pound belt.

According to media reports in his native Azerbaijan, the 28 year old is a world champion in pankration, world champion in sambo, world champion in combat sambo, world champion in jiu-jitsu, world champion in hand-to-hand fighting, champion of world cup in sambo, champion of Europe in combat sambo, champion of Аzerbaijan in sambo and champion of Аzerbaijan in Judo.

That's a mouthful.

His mixed martial arts (MMA) record stands at 11-2 with five of his wins coming by way of submission and five stoppages due to strikes. Abbasov went 2-2 in his first four professional fights but then went on a three year winning streak securing victories with promotions including Cage Warriors and Pro FC.

Abbasov's debut is set to take place at ONE FC: "Honor & Glory" at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on May 30. No opponent has been announced but the main contenders in the middleweight division at present are Leandro Ataides, Tatsuya Mizuno and Melvin Manhoef.
