The champion of the Absolute Fighting Championship (UFC) in lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov spoke about three won rams thanks to the mixed style fighter (MMA) Magomed Ismailov. The athlete's words are quoted on the Bald Predator YouTube channel.
The Russian noted that he made a bet in the form of three animals on a colleague's fight against Alexander Emelianenko. Nurmagomedov said that he had no doubts about Ismailov's confident victory, since he was stylistically uncomfortable for his opponent due to his ability to wrestle on the ground.
The fight between Emelianenko and Ismailov took place on July 24 in Sochi as part of the ACA 107 tournament. Ismailov dominated throughout the fight. The referee stopped finishing off Emelianenko who was under him in the third round.
Nurmagomedov is the second UFC fighter excluding weight categories. He has 28 wins in 28 fights. The last time he entered the octagon was in September 2019, when he defeated American Dustin Poirier.
