Having won the freestyle wrestling title in his weight category at the 2003 Asian championship, Abdusalomov made his Olympic debut at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens where he finished 9th overall in the men's freestyle 74kg category. He followed this the following year with a relatively disappointing 13th place in the 2005 FILA Wrestling World Championships in Budapest. Abdusalamov was to improve on this at the 2007 World Championships in Baku where he claimed second place, having moved up to the 84 kg weight category. At the next Olympics in 2008 Beijing, he repeated his good form from the world championships to claim the silver medal in the 84kg category. In the 2012 Summer Olympics, however, he was unable to achieve a medal after having lost to Gadzhimurad Nurmagomedov of Armenia.
