Kirill Sidelnikov (born August 17, 1988) is a Russian professional mixed martial artist and grappler, fighting out of Stary Oskol, the same hometown as Fedor Emelianenko with whom he is a training partner. He fights for M-1 Mixfight.


Sildelnikov fought for the first time on North Americain soil at Affliction: Day of Reckoning, losing to Paul Buentello. Following the fight Kirill Sidelnikov was suspended for testing positive for Stanozolol. The suspension period is retroactive to the conclusion of the bout on January 24 and runs through January 18, 2010. He has been fined $2,500. The mere presence of Stanozolol in the system constitutes a violation under the new testing procedures for CSAC. Sidelnikov claimed that the substance had been prescribed to him to recover from injury, and hence he maintains that he was unaware of his use of the banned substance. He is among the youngest fighters to compete in a major pay per view event in combat sport history. However due to his recent suspension from competition in the United States he has solely chose to compete within the M-1 organization, the same organization that gave him his first fight.

Kirill has also been involved in combat sambo competitions, and in the Russian championships of 2009 he advanced to the semifinals, while in 2010 he advanced to the finals. Despite his progress in the finals, he was defeated by training partner Aleksander Emelianenko.[1]

On November 8, 2010, he became the new World Combat Sambo champion.

On November 19, 2010, he participated in RCT - Russian Cities Tournament, held in Lipetsk, Russia, where he fought and defeated by unanimous decision Vladimir Kuchenko.

Sidelnikov has won 3 medals at world combat sambo championships—gold in 2010[2] and 2012,[3] silver in 2011.[4] On February 27, 2011, he won the Russian Championship in Combat Sambo.[citation needed]
