Magomed Magomedov vs Enrique Barzola
Magomedov vs Barzola can be very boring stick and move fight, solid pace technical fight and lastly grappling domination by Magomedov.
Magomedov lost in his last fight against Raufeon Stots but still one of the best Bantamweights in the world. Really appreciate his grappling skills especially, Beautiful to watch. In addition to his leg kicks, striking combinations and the constant added pressure.

“I broke him in the first round – and yes, he won it – and then the second round was even. But I knew that sooner or later his cardio was going to give out on him. “ Enrique Barzola
Every time I took him down, I would talk to myself. I would murmur in his ears. I wasn’t insulting him, no. I was just motivating myself and speaking to myself. And that’s when I entered into a connection within myself, and that’s something personal. I knew he wasn’t going to beat me. I was going to destroy him. I would say, ‘Come one, come on. What do you have?’ I’d tell myself.” Enrique Barzola
Barzola is a contestant in the Bellator Bantamweight Grand Prix. Stacked Grand Prix with world class fighters but Barzola might be the dark horse!!
In other words Magomedov vs Barzola can be one of the best Technical Fast paced fights in the Bellator Bantamweight Grand Prix are the most boring.
