Mirzaev won first place at the combat sambo division of the World Sambo Championships that was held in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, submitting his opponent in thirty seconds. In the same year, the Moscow Sambo Federation awarded Mirzaev with Best Athlete of the Year in combat sambo. His confidence only grew as he won his first MMA world title when he was just 18 years old. What followed was a decorated career which established him as one of the most exciting fighters in the history of the sport.
