Competing for the Soviet Union, Urmanov won the silver medal at the 1990 World Junior Championships. After the end of the Soviet Union, he chose to compete for Russia. In 1991, at age 17, he became the first skater to perform a quadruple jump, at the European Championships.

Urmanov competed at the 1992 Winter Olympics, where he placed 5th. He won the bronze medal at the 1993 World Championships. At the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, he won the gold medal.

Urmanov chose to remain in the competitive ranks. He became the 1997 European champion, but an injury forced him out of the 1997 World Championships after the short program and kept him from competing for a berth to the 1998 Olympics. He retired from Olympic-eligible skating in 1999 and won the World Professional Championships the same year. Urmanov was coached by Alexei Mishin at the Yubileyny Sports Palace in Saint Petersburg. During the 1990s, the rink often had poor-quality ice and other problems, resulting in limited training time.

Urmanov is an Honoured Masters of Sports of the Russian Federation. He works as a skating coach and an International Skating Union technical specialist. His former students include Sergei Voronov, Nodari Maisuradze, Zhan Bush, Gordei Gorshkov, Nikol Gosviani, Polina Agafonova, Anastasiia Gubanova and Deniss Vasiļjevs. Urmanov currently coaches Yulia Lipnitskaya. He was based in Saint Petersburg until 2014, when he moved to Sochi, to coach at the Iceberg Skating Palace. He sometimes holds summer camps or clinics in other locations such as Luleå, Sweden, and Paris, France.
