Shamil Gamzatov



Suffers first pro defeat
Light HeavyweightUFC
October 30, 2021
Gamzatov lost to Michal Oleksiejczuk via TKO (punches) at 3:31 of Round 1 at UFC 267 on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
That'll do it for Gamzatov's perfect 14-0 professional record. Both men had their moments in what was essentially a short kickboxing match, but Gamzatov ate a huge uppercut from Oleksiejczuk that essentially ended the fight right then and there. After a few additional strikes, referee Daniel Movahedi had officially seen enough. Although Gamzatov entered undefeated, he's never fought anyone of note and struggled through a split decision victory over Klidson Abreu in his UFC debut back in November 2019. Spending nearly two years on the sidelines certainly didn't help matters, but this was a pretty poor effort from Gamzatov.
