Akop Stepanyan, nicknamed “Sniper” is one of the brightest strikers in Russian mixed martial arts. He is the champion of Russia in taekwondo, kickboxing and army hand-to-hand combat, he is also a master of sports in boxing. Such a powerful base in percussion martial arts has become the key to his uncompromising and spectacular striking style.
Akop has competed in the M-1 Challenge, ACB and Bellator tournaments, has fought 39 professional fights to date and won the best knockout of the evening award more than once. Today we will see one of the brightest fights with his participation, which took place on December 20, 2014 at a tournament in Khabarovsk.
The opponent for this battle was chosen very interesting and worthy. American Eddie Yagin, nicknamed “The Philippine Phenomenon”, was also a truly uncompromising grunt, who always tried to exchange blows and knock out his opponent. His style was perfect for putting on a memorable battle. And his track record included performances in the UFC Octagon.
