ACA 118 Murad Abdulaev vs Abubakar Vagaev is the headliner but on the prelims is a specific prospect to watch who can sign with UFC or One Championship. Azam Gaforov is that prospect to watch, World class flyweight prospect born and raised Tajikistan fighting one of the best MMA promotions in the world.
Azam Gaforov 27 year old 12-1 record, Wushu Sanda fighting style. High level Flyweight is the #8th Flyweight in ACA. Fighting the 6th ranked flyweight Charles Henrique. Competitive fight, Gaforov defeats a really tough Braziian flyweight that will help him move up the rankings.
Gaforov reminds me of Brandon Moreno because of his pressure stand up striking. Looks like a pitbull, Keeps going at you!! Sweet hands, Solid takedown defense but needs to work on his stand up defense because he’ll get cracked against Moreno, Kape, France if he ever fought in the UFC.
However Azam Gaforov is VERY VERY good, Expect big things from 27 year old who will be signing with the UFC, One Championship in the near future.
Expect a significant win for Gaforov that will lead to a 2021 title shot!!
