After building an impressive 7-1 record as an amateur fighter Baghdasaryan made his professional debut in September 2015 where he successfully defeated Dmitry Komissarov via submission due to strikes during their bout at ProFC: Grand Prix 2016 Final Round event held in Grozny, Russia.

Despite being a part time fighter due to working full time outside of MMA Baghdasarian still finds a way to keep improving showing dedication not just inside but also outside of octagon Outside fighting Melisk devotes most pf his free time towards helping others achieve their own goals whether it’s through mentorship or leading seminars focused around developing psychological strength within athletes

With only one defeat under his belt so far Melsik looks forward facing higher ranked opponents while continuing making progress towards achieving championship status within UFC Middleweight Division
