American fighter mixed martial (MMA) Eddie Alvarez spoke about the Russian Habib Nurmagomedov. His words are quoted by MMAjunkie.
Alvarez said he did not consider the undefeated Nurmagomedov. “I think Gleison Tibau defeated Habib. Watching that fight, I feel that Gleeson stronger. So there is a way to defeat Nurmagomedov, even though he was the champion now,” said the American.
Nurmagomedov and Tibau met in the octagon in the summer of 2012. Then the Russian won by unanimous decision.
31-year-old Nurmagomedov is an undefeated fighter. He has 28 victories in 28 fights. Last time in the octagon Dagestani appeared on 7 September. On UFC in Abu Dhabi, he defended the title of champion in the lightweight division, beating American Dustin Pore.
Alvarez was the champion of UFC in the easiest weight category. On account of his 30 wins and seven defeats in mixed martial arts.
