Misha Cirkunov Wiki Update Wiki

Born in Riga, Latvia, Cirkunov began swimming at 6 and enjoyed the physical activity. After discovering Karate classes available in the same gymnasium, he took it up, before later switching to judo at the invitation of a friend who already was a champion in the style. He continued in Latvia until age 13, when himself and his parents relocated to Toronto, Canada.  


Upon arriving in his new hometown, the family looked to settle in and learn the new language, as well as the Candian culture and ways. Cirkunov found a local gym that offered Judo classes. Entering the gym, Cirkunov was astounded by the quality of the facility, and the services it offered, surpassing anything similar back in Riga at that time. 

 
He restarted Judo while also adding Freestyle wrestling in highschool, competing and training around the region and nationally ( in both styles ..). With new found coaching services, he also began quality strength and conditioning sessions.  

 
One day, sparring began with a lighter, smaller opponent at his judo gym, who was a blue belt in the style. Cirkunov superior to this foe in terms of rank ( black belt ) and physical strength, was humbled and submitted by the smaller foe. This opponent had training and knowledge in submission grappling and MMA, styles alien to Cirkunov at the time. This sparked his interest in MMA and submission oriented style in a big way..

 
Upon graduating highschool, Cirkunov found work as a bouncer. Later, at the encouragement of friends, he took a several month long training trip to Vegas, to check out some gyms and try to soak up some MMA knowledge and culture. He would continue working and training in Canada and the U.S for the next few years,  with a run at MMA in mind.  Satisfied with his progress, he debuted as pro in 2010.

Building a 9 - 2 record, he was signed to the UFC in 2015.  He is nationally celebrated in Latvia, the Baltic nation following his career and fights with excitement and anticipation.
