Magomed Magomedov former ACB Bantamweight Champion defeated Matteus Mattos in his Bellator debut at Bellator 254. Dominant grappling win as he was only at “60%.”
“I felt great, but I feel like I was basically about 60 percent,” Magomedov told MMA Junkie through an interpreter at the Bellator 254 post-fight news conference. “I basically just showed that I could wrestle, but what I didn’t show was how I mix it up in the standup and so forth.”https://mmajunkie.usatoday.com/2020/12/magomed-magomedov-i-was-only-able-to-show-about-60-percent-at-bellator-254
Curious to see what Magomedov is like at 100% against a world class fighter Brett Johns.
Yes Brett Johns fights for Bellator now since his UFC contract expired and like a SMART prizefighter tested free agency. Brett Johns 5-2 UFC record defeated Joe Soto, Tony Gravely, Five round losses to Aljamain Sterling and Pedro Munhoz.
What a welcoming debut for Brett Johns to fight Magomed Magomedov easily one of the best Bantamweights in the world.
Brett Johns defeats Magomed Magomedov in the Spring of 2021 that will move him up in the Bantamweight rankings and qualify in the Bantamweight grand prix if there was one in 2021.
Magomedov wins that shows he can defeat another UFC fighter as he’ll be on watch by Juan Archuleta as a future Bellator Bantamweight title challenger.
Bantamweight fight to schedule in 2021 I hope to see this dream fight become a reality. High level grappling, striking by two of the best Bantamweights in the world.
