MMA’s biggest prospect Sharaputdin Magomedov (11-0), a UFC newcomer to the middleweight division, took his loss in ADCC Thailand grappling tournamnent extremely badly. The reason is a unilateral “gentlemen’s agreement”.
Magomedov is known for his spectacular and effective fights. He is also known for not being able to fully deal with his emotions. Until recently, a video circulated on the Internet in which a Caucasus Russian knocks out a man who kissed a woman in front of him. Plus, in a public place.
This time the victim turned out to be Jakub Bilko, a Polish BJJ black belt who trains in the Philippines. A video posted by Jakub on Reddit (subsequently posted by UFC FightPass) shows the enraged UFC fighter. Why did the dispute happen?
According to Magomedov’s account, the men had agreed before the fight that Jakub would not use leg locks due to his upcoming fight vs Dereck Brunson and the possibility of injury.
In the video, we see that Jakub quickly catches a leg and releases the Russian’s without cranking it. Magomedov, after kneeling, gets up and kicks his opponent shouting some insults.

Probably with a debut fight coming up, it’s not a good idea in the UFC to participate in a tournament whose rules allow you to bend your joints in any direction with significant force. The red-haired Russian will certainly surprise us more than once.
