Shamil Zavurov (born July 4, 1984) is a Russian mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter who competes in the Welterweight division. A professional MMA competitor since 2004, Zavurov has won all but one of his professional fights.[3] He is the M-1 Global Eastern Europe champion in his weight division, and will face his Western European counterpart Abner "Skullman" Lloveras[5] for the inaugural M-1 Global Welterweight World Championship on December 10, 2010.[4]
Zavurov attended high school in Makhachkala, the capital of Dagestan, where he began training in freestyle wrestling under Mairbek Yusupov (member of the 1977-78 USSR team who went went on to coach Dagestan’s freestyle wrestling team).[2] Post-school, he studied at the Dagestan State Pedagogical University, graduating from the Faculty of Physical Culture and Sports and also studied Law at the Dagestan Institute of Finance and Law.[2] He continued working on his martial arts training, taking up Combat Sambo, and also started a family – he is married with two sons and a daughter.[2]
Zavurov has achieved a great deal of success in combat sports. In addition to more than 50 victories in amateur and semi-professional MMA, he has triumphed more than 50 times in Combat Sambo bouts, in the process winning winning three world championships[4] (2004, 2005, and 2007).[2] He has also won international tournaments in Wushu Sanda[4] (2003)[2] and wrestling and was the 2002 Dagestani champion in Wushu Sanda in the youth division.[2] In 2005 and 2007, he won Russian national championships[2] and was twice the CIS champion in hand-to-hand combat.[4]
The hardest fight in Zavurov's career was his unanimous decision victory over Seydina Seck[6] in which his arm was broken and he sustained torn ligaments – injuries that still cause him pain.[2] Zavurov still wonders about the only defeat of his career, a split decision loss to Rashid Magomedov[7] which was controversial in that commentators and viewers disagreed with the judges' decision. It was Zavurov's first fight in more than a year, his return after a serious injury he sustained after being drafted into the army.[2]
In fighting for the Eastern European M-1 Welterweight tournament, Zavurov defeated Radik Iboyan[8] with a second round technical knockout and won a hard-fought semi-final against Ramazan Abdulzhalilov[9] that went the full distance.[10] In the tournament final,[11] Zavurov defeated Magomedrasul Khasbulaev[12] with a "text-book rear-naked-choke submission."[13] Since winning the tournament, Zavurov has compiled four further victories in a single three week period,[3] against Vladimir Katyihin,[14] Vasily Novikov,[15] Vener Galiev,[16] and Jaroslav Poborsky.[17]
