UFC's Ali Bagautinov Carries Olympic Torch In Russia
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.05.2014



MMA Junkie reports that UFC flyweight Ali Bagautinov (13-2 MMA, 3-0 UFC) carried the Olympic torch ahead of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games, which opened this week in Sochi, Russia. He posted a photo of himself with the torch on Instagram.

The Olympic torch relay happens in both the summer and winter Games. It starts in Greece, the home of the Olympics, then travels around the world to where the Games are being held. The torch traveled through almost 3,000 towns in Russia for the Sochi Games.

Bagautinov's manager, Kamil Gadzhiyev said that he was supposed to carry the torch in his home region of Dagestan, but he was in the middle of his camp for his fight against John Lineker at UFC 169 last Saturday. Instead he was allowed to carry it in Krasnodar on the 121st day of the relay. This was the final stop before the torch hit Sochi.

Bagautinov won his fight against Lineker by unanimous decision in Newark, New Jersey on the main card of the show.
