Bazigit Atajev is a Russian mixed martial artist and kickboxer who represented Russia in RINGS, fought in Pride Fighting Championships, and also competed in K-1 kickboxing. He is known for a fierce spinning heel kick and Sambo style grappling. Atajev also holds notable wins against Tsuyoshi Kohsaka, Roman Zentsov, Valdas Pocevičius, and Aaron Brink.

Ajatev was considered a rising star in 2003, entering his first fight with PRIDE. In his Pride debut, he suffered his only loss against Dutchman Alistair Overeem at Pride 24.[1] Atajev then planned to make his return to Pride, at their final event Pride 34 against Gilbert Yvel. However, due to a stomach illness, the bout was cancelled.[2]

In 2008, he faced the eventual K-1 champion Remy Bonjasky in his kickboxing debut. He was defeated by knockout early in the third round.[3]

In 2013, he won the gold medal at the World Wushu Championships.[4]
