Aigun is a gritty Russian fighter who has consistently found ways to win.  He is not the most impressive prospect in any aspect of his game, but he has demonstrated that he is a winner.  He is a bit unorthodox with some of his strikes.  He tends to throw wild, looping punches and he is not an especially powerful puncher.  He has looked really solid at times from the top position, landing ground and pound from the guard.  Aigun has fought several times at middleweight, which may be fine on the regional circuit in Russia, but I believe that he needs to stick to 170 pounds.  Aigun has decent wrestling and grappling skills, but he is not the dynamic wrestler that some of the Russian prospects are.  He also tends to not be the most exciting fighter because of his tendency to clinch or hold top position.  Aigun is not far from ready for a big show opportunity.  He holds a career win over UFC fighter Gasan Umaltov.  He had at one time been rumored to sign with Titan Fighting, but that never materialized. Aigun already has a solid resume that could soon draw the attention of North American promoters.  I believe he is one signature win away from that opportunity.
