I will not spoil anything, but when they promote events in Cagewarriors they usually using a host to make the undercard, in this case Zubair Tuhugov signed the fight through an another club (host) in Groznyj, but yes, Cagewarriors is a good platform for local fighters such as Mohamed "Felx" Ali.
Other russians that is under negotiation with UFC are:
- Bekbulat Magomedov
- Albert Tumenov
- Rashid Magomedov
It is thanks by Kamil Gadzhiev (promoter of Fight Nights) who have developed a good mma-scene in Russia today, no corruption whatsoever, fair purse for the fighters and non-exclusive contracts.
You are right, you won’t spoil anything, but you kinda did try.
I think it was be a nice gesture if you could post a short apology to Ian in this thread
Ian - is it fair to say that in the UK, you have probably more of an eye for Europe than any other domestic human being?
And my guess would be that Red Bull banned him from reviewing their cans because it does FU6K ALL to him these days; doesn't even touch the sides. He now drinks fermented bear urine whilst eating shark steak.
A few years ago Ian fell into a cauldron of Red Bull and he drank it all so now he doesn't need a quick fix as it courses through his veins permanently...
