Remember the name Rustam Kerimov? Who is he? Rustam Kerimov former ACA Bantamweight Champion 14-0 record at 28 years old. ONLY reason he’s the former champion is because his ACA contract expired and interested in testing free agency.
My opinion Rustam Kerimov is the #1 free agent on the market right now. Yes that’s my opinion, He’s a world class fighter in the prime of his career.
Displaying masterful performances against talented Bantamweights like Abdul-Rakhman Dudaev. Best performance of his career. First round finishes against respected Bantamweight Takeya Mizugaki.
Defeating Russian savages like Oleg Borisov, Tural Ragimov, Alexander Peduson. International fighters like Francisco Maciel and Takeya Mizugaki.
Now time to fight against the best of the best Bantamweights in the world from the UFC, Bellator or One Championship. Best offer possible. Major promotions are lucky to have him as he can become there promotions champion. Argued one day as one of the best Bantamweights in the world.
A + fighter, All around skills with volume striking, Strong right hand. Addition to his outstanding grappling that impressed me the most against Dudaev.
Love to see him face guys like Jimmie Riviera, Patchy Mix, John Lineker. Show the world he can compete against the BEST Bantamweights in the top promotions.
2021 curious to see where #1 Bantamweight free agent signs than prospers to the top of the Bantamweight division.
