Mamed Khalidov (b. 1980 in Grozny) is a Chechen-Polish mixed martial arts fighter competing in the Middleweight division of Polish MMA promotion KSW. Khalidov is currently undefeated in the promotion and has not lost in his past 18 fights. He recently made his Sengoku debut, knocking out Middleweight Champion Jorge Santiago in the first round.
Khalidov has fought in six different KSW events, which more often than not feature a tournament with either four or eight participants. However, he has never participated in a tournament in the promotion, instead fighting individually such opponents as Daniel Tabera.
Khalidov made his US debut with EliteXC on their October 10, 2008 ShoXC card against American Jason Guida. After almost two hard-fought rounds, Khalidov stopped Guida on the feet with an unanswered torrent of punches.
Following the collapse of EliteXC, Khalidov has expressed interest in a hasty return to KSW, as previously outlined by his signing with ProElite in favor of nonexclusive contract status. Due to a broken hand, Khalidov was unable to return for KSW X on December 12, 2008. Following his recovery, he fought PRIDE veteran Daniel Acacio at KSW XI on 15 May, knocking him out in 1:10 minutes of the first round. Following this, he stated in an interview that he was negotiating with World Victory Road, Strikeforce and Affliction.
Khalidov signed a three fight deal with World Victory Road Sengoku and his first appearance for the promotion was on the November 7th card against Sengoku middleweight champion Jorge Santiago. Although, the fight was not a title bout, Khalidov defeated Santiago via first round KO. A rematch of the bout was held at World Victory Road Presents: Sengoku Raiden Championships 12 on March 7, for Santiago's Middleweight Championship, which Khalidov lost via Unanimous decision. It was a very close bout and many believe Mamed actually won the fight as he looked dominant in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th rounds.
