Gago "Drago" Aroetjunjan (born March 8, 1985) is an Armenian kickboxer, now fighting out of the Netherlands. He started out as a sparring partner of other well-known fighters such as Sahin "Kaas" Yakut and Dennis "Rus" Sharoykin, Drago has become one of Holland's best fighters. Known for the variety of his kicks and the relentlessness of his attack, Gago currently compates in K1-MAX events. He is trained by Edwin van Os and is under contract with Simon Rutz and his "It's Showtime" team.


In 1989 at the age of four, Gago Drago moved from Armenia to the Netherlands together with his father. At the age of 14 he started training kickboxing at Gym Alkmaar. Soon he proved that he had huge potential for the fighting game.

In the mean time Gago Aroetjunjan, whose name is completely replaced by "Gago Drago", has defeated many big names in the Dutch and Belgian kickboxing world. Remarkable fact: because of visa-issues he wasn't allowed to travel out of the Benelux. In 2005 he finally got permission to travel as a regular Dutch citizen.

Drago has an aggressive style, always moving forward and pressuring his opponent. His best weapons are his punch combinations and his unpredictable kicks, as well as his tenacity and grit.

On his fighting record he has wins over Mohamed Ouali, Chris van Venrooij (twice), Stephan Veselic (twice), Ali Gunyar (twice), Amir Zeyada, Imro Main, Jerry Morris, Marco Pique and Murat Direcki.

He lost against William Diender and Ondrej "Hutnik" Spejbl and drew against Aalviar Lima. From 2002 to February 2006 he went four years unbeaten. Faldir Chahbari was the fighter who stopped his winning streak during a WFCA-event in Holland on February 5, 2006.

On April 6th Drago fought his first fight for K-1 MAX at the K-1 World MAX 2006 - World Tournament Open -. In the final eliminations he was up against Danish Ole Laursen. After a nervous start Drago gave his opponent a standing 8-count in the second round. After three rounds Drago took the decision and placed himself among the top fighters in the MAX division.

On the May 13, 2006 he fought a Superfight against Ray Staring at the K-1 World Grand Prix in Amsterdam. He lost the fight on points.

Almost two months later on the June 30, 2006 Drago fought his first K-1 World MAX 2006 event. In the first round he landed a knee on 2002 K-1 Wolrd MAX Champion Albert Kraus and gave him an eight-count. That was enough to earn the point-victory and advance to the semi-finals against Buakaw Por. Pramuk. Knocked down in the second round, Buakaw was too strong that night for the young debutant.

The best K-1 community online!

The focus is on building a community that offers more to the users than any other K-1 website. The focus is also on that the community should be totally user driven, with the users as main writers of content. Who would for example write a better fight report than a fan who actually was at the fight? Or who could write a more interesting fighter profile than the fan who loves and really knows about a fighter? We believe that this approach will lead to that fansofk1.com has the most interesting K-1 information.
