Amosov comes to MMA with a combat sambo base.  He is a highly regarded prospect training out of Ukraine.  Amosov is a good sized welterweight with lots of upside.  He is just 23-years old and already holds an impressive 17-9 career mark.  He has fought a few decent fighters, but I believe before he moves on, he will need to fight some more experienced fighters.  I like Amosov’s striking overall.  He is very well rounded and his finished fights with strikes and with his submissions.  His striking game is fairly diverse.  He has good punches and seems to make good use of his length and size.  He has shown good power in his hands.  For example, he landed a beautiful right hand to knockout Diego Gonzalez.  He also has a good kicking game.  I believe that he needs to be a bit more aggressive in throwing combinations and landing in volume, but overall he is very solid on his feet.  I like Amosov’s movement on his feet.  When he is confident in his abilities, his striking goes to another level.  When a fighter goes 17-0, they cannot be ignored for long.  I believe that UFC or Bellator will have to pay closer attention if Amosov keeps winning fights.  When watching Amosov fight, I am reminded in many ways of current UFC fighter Tom Breese.
