He is a wushu-sanda champion.
Following his sucess in the European Wushu-Sanda Championship, he decided to try MMA and focused in other disciplines too: combat sambo, hand-to-hand combat, and complex fighting. He made his Mixed Martial Arts professional debut in 2012.

However, it seems Zabit is mostly focused on his career and judging from his social media where he has over a million followers -he appears to be currently single. He does strike as a good catch as he appears to be gentle and friendly even with kids -on social media photos- despite his mean takedown. Plus anybody will feel safe dating this guy, right!
