    ACB 90 heavyweight results and quick thoughts
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Salimgerey Rasulov moves up to 17-7 (6-1 in his 7 ACB fights, only lost to Goltsov, by UD)
    [​IMG] Mukhamad Vakhaev moves up to 7-4-1 (he's 6-1-1 in his last 8, that loss was to Rasulov by SD)

    [​IMG] Tanner Boser fells down to 15-5 (3-3 in ACB, of his last 6 fights 5 have went to decision)
    [​IMG] Sergey Belostenniy fells down to 5-2 (both loses came by RNC to Vakhaev)

    Belostenniy looked great on the feet, was destroying Vakhaev's body. Then got taken down and gave up, basically.
    Vakhaev cheated to win by grabbing the cage (again, he did that in the 1st fight too) and hitting the back of the head. Shameful.
    Vakhaev vs. Aliakbari should be next.

    Rasulov's recently streak is ridiculously good: Boser, Evgeny Erokhin, Umiev, Andryszak, Vakhaev and this guy i never heard. He's pretty much earned a titleshot too.

    IMO Belostenniy should either drop to light heavyweight or take a step back and work on his ground game a lot, specially on defense.

    Mayes wins by TKO in round 3. The first fighter to finish Nkemdirim Oti. The win wasn't really in question, but the finish makes it impressive, Oti is incredibly tough.

    Mayes is ready for a short notice in the UFC, there's only a handful of meaningful fights in the North American scene for him, and most of those guys already turned down fights with him. Either opponents need to step up, or the UFC needs to let Don'Tale step up.

    In my opinion he should fight Graves or Daniel James - if he beats one of them definitely UFC

    He's been calling them out. Hopefully someone makes it happen.

    did you see Klidson sub over Vyazigin? looked damn good out there, Vyazigin on the other hand.. very raw, and he gave hell to Sergei.. these Bellator HWs are so over the hill

    Yeah, Klidson is badass. He's too small for heavyweight, but as a LHW he should really be in the UFC or Bellator at this point, he's too good to be messing around on the regionals.

    I think he signed with M-1 to get in UFC, with their new partnership i think it's going to be much easier for these guys to be acknowledged. I think a title fight with M-1 LHW champ Khadis Ibragimov is next, and then winner gets signed, specially if it is Klidson. His friend & Evolução Thai teammate Bruno Silva is already their MW champion, and Michel Silva has been establishing himself as a contender at LW. Worldwide speaking, that may be gym of the year.

    Ibragimov is definitely way up though, if he wins, he is ufc bound period, dude has such a high quality of opposition for his career already. my gym of the year is likely tiger shulemann's
    joynson won, is 6'5" seems kinda ready to move up and face the other true regional HW talents. maybe fight the TKO champ, winner to the ufc

    Tiger is a great choice too, i appreciate it. I just hope isn't AKA, because while DC and Khabib had phenomenal years, that's 2 guys. Tiger and Evolução Thai had so many doing great things, in many different places and promotions.

    I would disagree with Ibragimov being way up, Klidson has beat Johnny Walker who just had his UFC debut win, Vyazigin (11-3), Viktor Nemkov former M-1 LHW champ, Leonardo Cabeção (13-3) a DWTNCS vet and Matheus Scheffel (12-5).
    Ibragimov beat former M-1 LHW Puetz (great win), Mikutsa (9-5) and Kukhalashvili (11-4) are 2 solid and consistent veterans but also very beatable guys.
    Considering Nemkov beat Puetz the last time, and what JW just did on UFC, i'd go with Klidson thus far.
    That said, both are very talented and will be UFC-bound soon, regardless of who wins their fight.

    Farias is a 205lb'er, when the UFC come after him he'll fight there. He beat Johnny Walker a couple years back, that usually draws their attention haha.

    I hope they sign both separately. Both are young, talented guys with the best win streaks at 205.

    I'd take just the winner, Ibragimov looks a bit green to me, and he's only 23, a few years in the regional Russian scene won't hurt.
    If he beats Klidson though, wow, that would be impressive and mean that he's damn ready and it's time.

    Guys, seems like you are forgot it or maybe I missed some updates, but as far as I can remember, only M-1 champions with at least one title defense can sign with UFC.
