Curious as of November 30
Nurmagomedov is rag dolling his competitors when he gets his hands , an incredible grappler, throwing them to the ground and smashing them with an ground and pound. The pressure he puts on his foes leaves them tired and he finishes them or proceeds to maul them. Though he had been hurt at UFC 242 contrary to Dustin Poirier in his own defense his striking has enhanced recently however he does a good job.
Ferguson, the challenger, is a athlete, using a very dangerous submission match and top-level striking. El Cucuy has unorthodox striking throwing elbows turning strikes, knees , all from awkward angles that are tough to find up and if he lands the damage on his competitors’ face is evident immediately. Ferguson also is a college national wrestling champion winning back??in 2006 so if he wishes to keep.
A really interesting battle as Nurmagomedov swarms his opponents earns the victory and gases them out. That said, Ferguson is equally as great on the ground , seemingly never gets tired, has exceptional and has conditioning. I think the champ will need to actually have the first 3 rounds and become a defensive shell at the back half of the fight if he wishes to keep the title, while the challenger might have to keep the fight standing where he ought to have a major edge.
