Do Russian/Dagestani fighters have overrated striking in general?

    Ankalaev and Zabit are both two of the best strikers in their division. It seems like more Dagestani/Chechen fighters are strikers than wrestlers nowadays.

    Petr Yan probably the best striker among them, either him or Zabit, but there's no special water in Dagestan, not even their wrestling held up in UFC Moscow, if you want to get better at striking you need to be guzzling Zabit's jizz, if you want to get better at wrestling you need to guzzle Khabib's thick white stuff, that will cume at a very high price, the waters of Dagestan will do jack for your genetics, anyone who sell you that shiet is a manlet baldy on peds.

    Zabit is overrated for sure. Very flashy and creative but not very effective. Yair is a better striker. They need to fight.

    A lot is wrong with this post, but the wrongest part is Yakovlev losing all 3 rounds. Anyone with eyes gave him the 2nd round, he was kind of dominant.

    Their striking isn't renowned or highly rated, so no.

    Haha, you missed my joke badly. The first post has "Roberts" outstriking like 3+ people. I was making fun of that.

    Since nuthuggers were known for blowing everything out of proportion. As silly as it is, I see a lot of posters that think Khabib would outstrike Conor in a kickboxing match. The Dagestani thing is kind of weird, as Khabib nuthuggers have become nuthuggers for the whole region

    Muslim Salikhov is the best wushu sandiste of our era and he is dagestani, zabit is from the same school of Salikhov and they both have ridiculous striking.
    Rashid Magomedov have a good striking too like his fellow from Gorets Club Magomed Ankalaev.
    And there are a lot just let them grow up

    I have never heard anyone on here or elsewhere say that Dagestani's were famous for their striking. Wrestling/grappling yes, but not striking. I don't know what Ts has been smoking .

    Rustam, Zabit, Taisumov , Magomedov, Amagov all have very good striking
    Would not say great, but I dont think they are highly rated. They are highly rated for being pretty well rounded
    Not sure about Albert Tumenov, is he dagestani?

    Zabit, Salikhov, Said Nurmagomedov, Ankalaev, Makhachev, Magomedov, Khaybullaev, Ataev and more...
    Amagov and Taisumov are Chechen.
    Tumenov is Balkar.
    But yeah they are all North Caucasian.
