ACA 130 Fighters to Watch

Talented fighters all over Russia aspiring to make better lives for themselves and families. Wanting to be the next Fedor, Khabib, Islam, Zabit. Bunch of fighters on this ACA 130 card that have the potential to become future UFC, Bellator, One Championship fighters in the next few years.

Abubakar Vagaev

20-3 record, One of the best Russian Welterweight prospects. Will show he’s one of the best prospects defending his ACA Welterweight Title against Ustarmagomed Gadzhidaudov 14-5 record.

Vagaev is one talented wrestler, Once he takes you down good luck getting up as he’s built like a brick made of Russian steel. Mixes up the Dominant wrestling with some low kicks and jabs.

Definitely needs to develop his striking more if he wants to compete against high level UFC fighters.

Wins over foreign fighters Fernando Gonzalez(28-17 record), Yasubey Enomoto (21-11)

Islam Omarov

Rising Featherweight prospect with a undefeated record. Born and raised in the breeding ground of Dagestan. He’s one the next bright prospects to come out of Dagestan.

Coming off a huge win against top ten ACA Featherweight Bibert Tumenov.

Comparison- Chad Mendes

Felipe Froes

Former ACA Featherweight Champion looking to bounce back after losing his ACA FEATHERWEIGHT title against Magomedrasul Khasbulaev.

Froes is one of the best Featherweights to not fight for the UFC or Bellator. He’s a very good fighter and any luck promotion to have him as a contracted fighter.

Compared to Jose Aldo because of his size and fighting style. Trains at the same gym Nova União.

  • 20-5 record
  • 29 years old
  • Former ACA Featherweight Champion
  • Fought for ACA, WFCA, SHOOTO Brasil

Rustam Kerimov

One of the best Bantamweights in the world. One of my favorite fighters in the world. Kerimov was the former ACA Bantamweight champion, ONLY REASON was to test free agency. Now he’s returning to pursue the title again.

First opponent since his return is Daniel Oliveira former ACA Bantamweight Champion. 28-8 record fought all over Brazil before signing with ACA and finding a successful career there.

His talent stood out to me when Rustam Kerimov defeated Abdul-Rakhman Dudaev for the ACA Bantamweight Title in a masterful performance. Showed his strong composed mindset, Addition to his high level combat sambo skills.

Defeated former UFC fighters Takeya Mizugaki, Francisco Maciel, A younger Andrey Goncharov whose one of the best Russian Featherweight prospects right now in his ACA title run.

Dominated Maciel in his ACA title defense, Winning by referee stoppage in the first round.

Amirkhan Adaev

Lightweight version of Zabit Magomedsharipov. Expressing his high level taekwondo in the ACA promotion.

One of the best Russian Lightweights, Without a doubt will be signed by the UFC, Bellator in the following years.

Felipe Froes ACA Career

Felipe Froes Shooto Brasil Featherweight signed with WFCA than found a home in ACA. Now ACA Featherweight Champion and one of the best featherweights non UFC. Froes winning the ACA Featherweight title in his third ACA fight and defending it once against Marat Balaev.

Fight against Balaev was impressive as Froes was getting dominated with takedowns but because of his mental strength and pure will had a comeback victory. Ending the fight with beautiful combinations against Balaev that lead to a ref stoppage.

Felipe Froes found a home in ACA, One of the best promotions in the world. See how talented he is in cross promotions like Bellator, Rizin, KSW, PFL, Combate Americas.

Froes showing the Major Promotions he’s one of the best Featherweights in the world just fights ACA.

Froes title winning performance against Salman Zhamaldaev was impressive at it went the full five rounds. Exciting high pressure FIGHT it was. Salman the better grappler but Fores has a very good tank and solid takedown defense that lead to hitting Salman Zhamaldaev with accurate volume striking.

Definitely watch the fight on youtube because you’re in for a treat. Both fighters are dawgs, Fighter with more mental toughness won that fight. Leading to the comeback win in his first title defense against Balaev which really SHOWED how much of a savage Froes is!

Felipe Froes 2021

2021 is a new year ACA 117 and 118 events are scheduled in February, ACA 119 we can see Froes defend his ACA Featherweight title for a second time against Magomerasul Khasbulaev #1 contender or Apti Bimarzaev #5 Featherweight. Froes obvious favorite in both fights but a fight against Bimarzaev.

Cross promotions are new with Bellator vs Rizin. Man I’d love to see Felipe Froes fight KSW Featherweights like Daniel Torres(KSW Featherweight Champion) and former champion Salahdine Parnasse. Felipe Froes traveling to Warsaw, Poland for a GREAT Featherweight clash of champions.

Second cross promotion option is Felipe Froes moving up to 155 pounds and fighting Tofiq Musaev Rizin Lightweight Champion. One of the best Lightweight fighters in the world.

Froes vs Musaev would be a sick technical fight mostly stand up with some beautiful sprawls that MMA fans will appreciate.

Cross promotion Title fights less likely to happen but one man can dream right!!

Smart way for the underrated Major promotions to build there promotions brand globally amongst MMA fans with better ratings and the ACA promoter should really bring Felipe Froes around the world. Same way NWA wrestling built up Ric Flair.

2021 is a important year for Felipe Froes 29 years old, Peak years ahead of him. Genuinely curious to see what happens with Froes in 2021.
