Viktor Aleksandrovich Nemkov (Russian: Виктор Александрович Немков; born January 26, 1987 in Kazakhstan) is a Russian-Kazakh sambist, judoka competitor and mixed martial artist. Nemkov won the 2011 World Sambo Championships in Combat Sambo Events.[1] According to the global-mma.com rankings, he is the number 10 ranked Light Heavyweight in the world outside of the UFC.

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Background[edit]

Victor Nemkov was born in a small village in Zhalgyskan, Kazakh SSR, Soviet Union, now modern-Kazakhstan. In 1999 the family moved to the village Tomarovka, Belgorod Oblast. There, Nemkov began to train in Judo.

Having spent some successful tournaments, Nemkov became a "Master of Sport in Judo."[2]

Nemkov was the 2008 Russian Combat Sambo bronze medalist in the 90 kg weight category and the 2009 World Cup champion.[3]

Nemkov trains at the Red Devil Sport Club; a training facility and team strongly linked with the M-1 Global promotion and Fedor Emelianenko.[4][5]

M-1 Global[edit]

Nemkov began his professional mixed martial arts career with a loss to Magomed Sultanakhmedov via TKO, but quickly rebounded against newcomer Christian Bombay. Nemkov was able to secure a triangle choke on Bombay early in the first round to claim his first victory.[4]

Nemkov continued in M-1 with several victories, including one in a fight against Sergey Khramov.[6]

Nemkov's toughest challenge at that point came against the vastly experienced Tony Lopez in South Korea. Lopez' experience was perhaps too great, as he walked away with a submission victory via rear naked choke in the second round, handing Nemkov his second career loss.[7]

Nemkov then signed to fight Khanilav Khanilaev at the M-1 2009 Finals.[8] Nemkov went onto suffer his third career defeat, losing via split decision. Nemkov would bounce back with a victory over Shamil Vajsurov who, going into the fight, had a record of 0-1.[9]

In August 2010, Nemkov was reportedly scouted by World Wrestling Entertainment - whilst on a tour of Russia - who wanted to sign him as a professional wrestler.[10]

In April 2011, Nemkov fought Vinny Magalhaes for the vacant M-1 Global Light Heavyweight title. Early on, Magalhaes looked for a takedown, but it was Nemkov who was able to secure top position early on.[11] From there, Nemkov had to defend against multiple submission attempts, including an omoplata which seemed to be almost locked in.[11] From the second round, Magalhaes visibly tired, but still managed to mount Nemkov on a couple of occasions. Magalhaes was able to finish Nemkov in the third round via rare mounted gogoplata with a neck crank.[11]

Following the loss, Nemkov went on a four fight winning streak, including a tournament win held over a 4-month span.[4]
