Mixed martial arts career[edit]

ONE Fighting Championship[edit]

In January 2012 it was announced that Khabilov had signed with ONE Fighting Championship. He made his debut at ONE Fighting Championship: Battle of Heroes at The BritAma Arena in Jakarta, Indonesia on February 11, 2012 against Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Champion Rodrigo Ribeiro.[2] He won the fight via unanimous decision.

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Khabilov signed a four-fight deal with the UFC in July 2012.[3]

In his debut, Khabilov faced Vinc Pichel on December 15, 2012 at The Ultimate Fighter: Team Carwin vs. Team Nelson Finale.[4] He won the fight in the first round against Pichel hurting him with a suplex and finishing him off with punches on the ground.

For his second fight in the organization, Khabilov faced UFC newcomer and Strikeforce veteran Yancy Medeiros at UFC 159 on April 27, 2013.[5] The fight ended in unusual fashion as Medeiros dislocated his thumb during a takedown by Khabilov early in the first round, resulting in a TKO victory for Khabilov as Medeiros was unable to continue.

For his third UFC fight, Khabilov faced Jorge Masvidal on November 6, 2013 at UFC: Fight for the Troops 3.[6] He won the back-and-forth bout via unanimous decision. The fight also garnered Khabilov his first Fight of the Night bonus award.[7]

Khabilov was expected to face Rafael dos Anjos on February 22, 2014 at UFC 170.[8] However, the bout was scrapped in the weeks leading up to the event.[9]

Khabilov is expected to face Benson Henderson on June 7, 2014 at UFC Fight Night: Henderson vs. Khabilov.[10]
