Russian beast trains grappling in Rio

Share it

According to friends of the academy in Rio de Janeiro, Russia’s Igor Vasilyev has fought in MMA matches where even biting was allowed.

Folklore or not, Igor is a beast. The judoka who also specializes in sambo is at Gordo-Evolve academy working on his Jiu-Jitsu to take off in MMA once and for all. According to the website, Vasilyev has  three losses at M-1 Russia plus a TKO win at Face to Face earlier this month on his record, and now he wants to turn things around, which may happen at the next Jungle Fight, an event promoted by Wallid Ismail.

So far, the Russian fighter has handled himself well in Jiu-Jitsu, as shown in the takedown technique he displayed at the last No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu Championship, in Rio.

    Great that you put this article up here!

    Igor’s last name is actually spelled VASILYEW and has no record on Sherdog, however his Face to Face fight was mistakenly added to Igor VasiloV’s fight statistics. Igor is 3-1 in Russian MMA events, has a fight weight of 84kg and has a win in Brazil at Face to Face.

    Keep up the good work.

    Hey Dennis,
    This question of spelling of Russian names is confusing, as they are often spelled in different ways in English. I guess it comes down to what spelling the translator feels is best, like how Fedor is also spelt Feodor,Fjodor, Fyodor, Fiodor.

    Now as for Igor, so the Igor Vasilyev on Sherdog is not the same one as the Igor Vasilyew in question? I imagine that could cause confusion for the both of them for a long time into the future if that’s not cleared up.

    Thanks for the input, Dennis.
