Default Dmitry Khristyuk: Take into account the experience of M-1 in Russia

Published on December 26, 2011.

President of the League of Mixed Martial Arts "M-1 Ukraine" Dmitry Khristyuk in an interview with "Chempionat.com" summed up the year.

- Dmitry, 2011 was a good one for the "M-1 Ukraine"?
- Tournaments that are held under the auspices of the Ukrainian league, have borne fruit. Already become prominent and bright personality, which can hardly be called until now even the stars on a national scale, but these are promising guys who are training at a normal approach and a good advertising campaign can be a fairly well-known fighters. Allocated Haytulov, Agafonov, Dolotenko. Another Ukrainian - Igor Zadernovsky - has huge potential. While he admits a lot of minor bugs. It is important to analyze them and he subsequently acted confident.
Showed a good fight two of Alexander - Trump and Vitov. Trump could better allocate their forces to fight the whole, and thus won. Still, experience plays a big role.
And even the losers showed a decent fight. Always worried that, in such tournaments as much as possible injuries. Mixed martial arts - fairly tough sport, I would say this man. The guys in front of the New Year holidays I want to wish you health, a minimum of trauma and triumphs.

- How would you rate the level of development of the sport in Ukraine?
- We already have something to be proud of, despite his youth league. All tournaments are broadcast on the central TV channels. In this sport is very important that the fans support the athletes, and they felt themselves to interest from fans, fan clubs were created. You can hold any number of tournaments, but no television broadcasts, coverage of events in the media popularity of the sport will not increase.
And a case in point is the example of Fedor Emelianenko with his whole army of fans from around the world who wholeheartedly support this unique athlete.

-In tournaments of this level - not an easy task. The quality of the organization you are satisfied at this stage?
- I would say that we were a little easier - we walked the road, beaten by our northern neighbors. They do have a lot to learn: sports show a level which is staged in Moscow, Fedor Emelianenko and M-1 Global, the former Soviet Union and no one ever carried out. We learned a lot from our Russian colleagues, tried not to make the same mistakes that were with them, to bring something of their own. We still have something to learn, but we just tried to keep the bar and mark the brand M-1.

- How is the best Ukrainian fighter Guram Gugenishvili?
- Unfortunately, today in Ukraine have no serious opponents Guram. But I think in 2-3 years will raise the fighter who could be with him to conquer the world's highest peak.
In the near future discovery halls Sports MMA all comers, holding tournaments and promoturnirov, creation of recreational areas of mixed martial arts.


In 2010, Ukraine mixed martial arts at the state level has been recognized as a sport. Only our league has the right to hold similar competitions in the country. Therefore, all the tournaments that are now absolutely legal. Tournaments are held according to schedule, broadcast on national and regional television channels, have very good ratings. Each rider is insured in a tournament there are qualified doctors, and the rules are respected without question. By the way, mixed martial arts fights do not mean no rules. In our sport there are rules and they have passed peer review. A domestic judges - training that is fixed in tournaments. In addition, in all their competitions and advertising campaigns, we do not use the term "ultimate fighting". This name demeans the sport and turning it into a street scuffle. We have fighters with two higher educations, but relations between them are built on mutual respect. And there are practically no cases, that they knowingly violated the rules.

- Cooperating with the international associations of M-1?
- We are official representatives of one of the top MMA organization in the world - M-1 Global. Our soldiers have the opportunity to participate in an international tournament series M-1 Selection, and the right to compete for the championship belt of the world M-1 Challenge.
While only one Guram paved the way. In St. Petersburg he won the world title of M-1 Shallenge, and in Moscow, in the battle against the Russians Maksim Grishin, saved it to Ukraine.

- Is the Guram become a sparring partner for Emelianenko, it would be useful to get experience?
- This year was not very successful for our athletes - had to endure two of his fights because of injuries. So first of all everything is looking right now waiting for the restoration Guram and vivid battle in his performance.

I especially liked this response:

"In addition, in all their competitions and advertising campaigns, we do not use the term "ultimate fighting". This name demeans the sport and turning it into a street scuffle. We have fighters with two higher educations, but relations between them (fighters) are built on mutual respect. And there are practically no cases, that they knowingly violated the rules."
