Magomed Magomedov dominant performance at Bellator 255, Rear naked choke in the second round. Showing his talents against replacement Cee-Jay Hamilton as he was no match for the Russian killer.
Fight wasn’t even close as Magomedov suplexed Hamilton end of the first round. Constant pressure from grappling to ground & pound. Magomedov continues to impress me.
Magomedov ranked #5 in the new Bellator Bantamweight rankings but no way in hell he should be!! This dude is a stud and a half. Defeating Petr Yan once and having one of the best Bantamweight fights ever at ACB 57. Watched ACB 57, Twenty times so far because of the high level striking, sprawls, grappling exchanges. Every MMA fan needs to watch this fight.
“I should be even higher”
Fought two tough opponents in his Bellator career from Mattheus Mattos and Cee-Jay Hamilton. Time for a top five opponent.
“I would like to fight someone from the top five I want to fight forward, Want to tell Archuleta I’m coming for him.” Magomed Magomedovhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLtboV1uGac
Training with killers with Zabit Magomedsharipov, Marlon Moraes, Cody Garbrandt, Frankie Edgar, Eddie Alvarez and coached by one of the best MMA coaches Mark Henry. Respected A LOT by the MMA world and MMA fighters because of he’s a striking coach genius.
“I take a lot from him and he gave me a lot of advice. He showed me a lot of my mistakes on the ground. I would like to be on the ground like Khabib and on my feet like Zabit.”
