Jacob Malkoun UFC Middleweight Prospect 5-1 record fought a very tough Abdul Razak Alhassan in a dominant performance with wrestling, Pressure against the cage, Ground & Pound.
Getting his first win of many UFC fights. Training with the KILLER Australian Assassin Robert Whittaker. Confident he can compete with the best of the best UFC Middleweights.
“There was a never a question about my skill set I’ve always had my coaches believed in me more than I believe in myself really they just put in my brain so I’ve always had a high skill set training with Robert Whittaker all the time so I know where I am but I just got to prove it on the stage it’s easy to train and be good in the gym but to get in the cage and do it is another thing and I just showed that prove to myself that I can do it.” Jacob Malkoun
Hope Malkoun returns this summer of 2021 fighting tough UFC Middleweights, Getting much experience as possible inside the cage. Improving more and more.
“I just want to get better first,” Malkoun said. “I don’t want to keep jumping in. I’ve got a lot of gaps to fill. There’s no easy fight in the UFC. I can’t just keep jumping and say, ‘Oh, I’m the best’ because I won one fight. I’ve got to keep getting better. So whatever the coaches think (I should do next), we’ll go back, regroup, and we’ll see what happens from there.”https://mmajunkie.usatoday.com/2021/04/jacob-malkoun-proved-he-belongs-with-ufc-espn-22-win-video
Malkoun had a rough UFC loss, Losing to Phil Hawes in 18 seconds. Forgetting the loss and now seeking to go on a UFC winning streak. Becoming a hot UFC Middleweight prospect.
“You learn, especially if it’s your first loss,” Malkoun said. “You learn from everything. You just gotta leave it behind you, and you gotta focus on the next thing. Can’t keep worrying about the past.” https://www.ufc.com/news/jacob-malkoun-learned-let-go-australia-ufc-fight-night-whittaker-gastelum-read
“Losing is part of the sport the only way to get better.”
Hopefully the last loss for a while, Malkoun is a very talented fighter, Definitely his cardio will be a strong skillset that will help him in 2021 and his UFC journey. Developing a strong mindset, Becoming fearless inside the cage will only make him stronger.
However 5-1 record pro record, Winning ADCC Asian Trials in Jiu-Jitsu is crazy. This dude’s a beast just needs to fight more.
“I want to have at least one more fight but I want to go back to the gym when I get home keep grinding and trotting along so I can build that skill set see I’ve got some animals in my division so if I want to get to the next level just want to keep pushing through.”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Xy9BFifCVQ
