After i have followed MMA in Europe constantly since 2007 i have discovered probably the most impressive heavyweight fighter who is just only 18-years old. Usually the heavyweight fighters in high level are making their career around 20-21 years old such as Stav Economou and Stefan Struve when it comes to MMA in Europe. Ion is one of them who began younger then that.
Ion Cutelaba represents Moldova who usually does not make any sound when it comes to MMA, but when they you will notice that by the reaction of brutal ko:s/strikes in youtube.
What makes Ion special? He have trained all kind of sports such as greco-roman wrestling,judo , boxing and now in Combat Sambo and so far he dominates his opponents all the time. His physics are also special since he has a body that makes Fedor Emelaiennko look like a light heavyweight.
Height: 185 cm
Weight: 117 kg
Club: CSA Moldova
- Moldovan champion in Judo
- Moldovan champion in Combat Sambo
- European champion in Combat Sambo
Here is one videoclip that says everything about him.
The question is where he will be when he is 20-years old, i would say that he will definitely be ranked very high in Europe in his weight category.
