Timur Valiev Russian Bantamweight prospect, Successful career with Professional Fighters League and Gorilla Fighting Championship. Valiev second UFC fight was a dominant grappling performance with barely any damage taken.
Looking forward to Valiev’s next fight which could be scheduled in the next month if ready for a quick turn around but the Russian Frankie Edgar is ready for it.
Valiev physically looked great, Gained more muscle lost some love handles. Valiev 17-2 record definitely needs tougher competition as he’s good for it.
Cancelled fight with Julio Arce was the RIGHT fight for Valiev, Possibly reschedule Valiev vs Arce in March…
Fight options such as Darren Elkins, Herbert Burns, Alex Caceres. Top 25 Featherweights. Timur Valiev fighting lesser level opponents won’t show what he’s truly made of. Valiev was one of the best Bantamweights in the world before moving up to the Featherweight division.
Mirsad Bektic vs Timur Valiev would be a sick fight to watch, Bektic is on a losing streak but he always brings his best and we all remember Bektic for putting that whooping on Darren Elkins until Elkins brought out the DAWG in him.
Russian Frankie Edgar Timur Valiev trains with some of the best fighters in the world such as Frankie Edgar, Corey Anderson, Lance Palmer and coached by underrated head coach Nick Catone. Formely trained at Ricardo Almeida Jiu Jitsu with Eddie Alvarez, Marlon Moraes. Learning from coaching genius Mark Henry whose highly respected for his striking knowledge.
