Mixed martial arts career
Amagov made his professional mixed martial arts debut in November 2007 in Russia. He lost his debut bout via submission, but soon amassed a record of 8-1-1 with most of his fights taking place in the ProFC promotion. His brothers Musa Amagov and Beslan Amagov are also professional MMA fighters. He is of Chechen Muslim descent.
Amagov drew considerable attention in 2010 when a video of his spinning hook kick knockout of Maskhat Akhmetov became popular on several MMA message boards and news sites. He is managed by Sam Kardan and Mike Constantino of MVC Management.
Amagov was successful in his second bout for Strikeforce as he defeated Anthony Smith via KO in the first round at Strikeforce Challengers: Britt vs. Sayers.
Following his two Challengers wins, Amagov made his debut on a main card at Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine on January 7, 2012. He faced Robbie Lawler in the co-main event and lost the fight via TKO (flying knee and punches) early in the first round.
Amagov returned to the promotion on August 18, 2012 at Strikeforce: Rousey vs. Kaufman. He faced Keith Berry at the event and won via TKO early in the first round after a side kick to the knee and punches on the ground.
Ultimate Fighting Championship
On January 19, 2013, it was revealed that Amagov had signed to fight for the UFC.
Amagov made his promotional and welterweight debut against fellow newcomer Chris Spång on April 6, 2013 at UFC on Fuel TV 9. Amagov dominated the fight from start to finish, earning a unanimous decision victory.
