23 | 5’9″ | Warsaw, Poland | 7-0 | 4 Finishes | 3 KO/TKOs, 1 Submission (RNC) | Combined Opponents’ Record: 32-21-1 | Best Win – Amaury Junior (13-9)
Poland has a lot of talent but the majority are under KSW contract. So when there is a chance to get a good Polish prospect on the market you jump on it. Azhiev is the real deal and should be fighting for a bigger promotion. He’s the defending Armia Fight Night featherweight champion. Combined as a pro and amateur Azhiev is 12-0.
On the feet, Azhiev has a good jab, long punches, and solid kickboxing. Azhiev will kick the legs and go up top quite often. He excels more on the mat and his wrestling to get it there is pretty strong. Azhiev has glue-like grappling, controlling every movement. His ground and pound is his best weapon. He will unload with punches in any position and getting into the crucifix is something he’s liked to finish with in the past.
