Albert Khuseinovich Tumenov (Russian: Альберт Туменов; Karachay-Balkar: Альберт Туменланы; born December 26, 1991 in Kabardino-Balkaria) is a Russian mixed martial artist and former amateur boxer of Balkar heritage. Tumenov competes in the welterweight division of the Absolute Championship Berkut. Professional mixed martial artist since 2010, Tumenov has also competed in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
Albert was born in 1991 in the Kabardino-Balkaria, Russia. He belongs to the Balkar ethnic group and is a devout Sunni Muslim. Tumenov is the first child in the family and he has a younger sister, Asiyat.
His cousin is amateur world boxing champion Bibert Tumenov.
Mixed martial arts career
With the help of his father, Tumenov began training in karate and boxing at age 6. After 5 years of training in karate, Albert became a student of hand-to-hand combat. He made his professional MMA debut when he was 18 years old. Albert's coach is his father Khusein, who has a Master of Sports degree in boxing.
Tumenov faced Kadzhik Abadzhyan on February 13, 2010. He won the back-and-forth fight via knockout in the first round.
In second fight for the promotion, Tumenov faced powerful Armenian wrestler Vahe Tadevosyan on October 22, 2012 at ProFC - Union Nation Cup 9. Tumenov won the tough fight via unanimous decision.
Tumenov faced Gocha Smoyan on January 22, 2011. He lost via split decision, although many viewers felt he won the fight.
Ultimate Fighting Championship
In December 2013, Tumenov signed a four-fight contract with the UFC.
Tumenov was expected to face Héctor Urbina on June 13, 2015 at UFC 188. However, Urbina was injured and was replaced by UFC newcomer Andrew Todhunter. Subsequently, the bout was then cancelled altogether on June 11 after Todhunter was medically disqualified from the card after dealing with issues while cutting weight.
Tumenov was released from the UFC following two-straight losses.
