David Khakhaleishvili (Georgian: დავით ხახალეიშვილი, born 28 February 1971 in Kutaisi) is a retired heavyweight Georgian judoka, mixed martial artist and Olympic gold medalist.

He was expected to defend his heavyweight Olympic title at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, U.S. in a highly-anticipated match against the reigning world champion, David Douillet, but Khakhaleishvili and his coach went to the wrong location for weigh-ins and Khakhaleishvili was disqualified from the competition for failing to make weight.[1]
