Since his fight against Islam Makhachev he’s been on my eyes. Extremely impressed by the way he fought Islam. To this day was the toughest fight for Islam, Challenged his wrestling. There was some great sprawls, Back and forth striking. Want to watch a high level fight watch Islam vs Arman.
Since his UFC debut loss to Islam he’s been on a 4 fight winning streak defeating Olivier Aubin Mercier, Matt Frevola and Christos Giagos.
Next opponent is Joel Alvarez coming off a huge win against Thiago Moises. Riding on a 4 fight winning streak. Can finish you on the ground with submissions or ground & pound. In addition to striking.
Definitely has something to prove, Make a statement against UFC rising star but I doubt that will be the case, No offense to Joel.
Be the second toughest fight for Arman Tsarukyan but Arman is such a superb grappler that Alvarez will definitely have trouble. Way more stronger than Alvarez as even Islam was having trouble keeping him grounded.
Before signing with UFC was one of the best Spanish MMA prospects and now has a record of 19-2.
If he defeats Joel Alvarez with ease definitely will gain more respect and top 15 Lightweight matchups moving forward.
“I want to win the upcoming fight. I thought the UFC would offer me a top ten fighter, but that’s what happened. My opponent is from the top 15. If I beat him, I’m sure I’ll have to fight one of the leaders. I will defeat Álvarez and win in the second round with a choke hold,” fighttime.ru quotes Arman Tsarukyan.https://sport.news.am/eng/news/129695/arman-tsarukyan-talks-about-fight-with-joel-%C3%A1lvarez.html
