    Dude from Ukraine fighting tonight in Bellator against a beast wrestling champion Ed Ruth who could also hang in the UFC.

    But this kid’s undefeated 22-0 record at the age of 26 is ridiculously impressive. Saw some of his highlights on YouTube and this guy has every single skillset that you need in MMA. Elite wrestling, high volume striking, submission ability.

    If he wins tonight no doubt he’s probably next in line to fight against Douglas Lima, and given Lima’s past struggles of getting taken down, I’d like to think this kid could potentially be a future world champion.

    Too bad Bellator is so dumb that they decided to showcase this fight on the same weekend as Auckland/WilderxFury. They’ve effectively made sure nobody talks about their event.

    UPDATE:

    The kid is a beast. He not only beat Ed Ruth, but he dominated the wrestling against a D1 multiple time wrestling champion. Douglas Lima is next and people will know his name. My pick would be, Douglas has his hands full and this kid might put together an all around performance and in addition to putting a stamp on the fight by putting Lima on his back.

    That’s why I made the thread. He’s fighting Ed Ruth tonight who is really good, green, but good. And then he’s on the verge of fighting Lima who most people consider a Top 10 WW.

    This guy would absolutely kill Chiesa who is Top 5-6 or some shit that’s forsure.

    I was pretty impressed with his grappling against Erick Silva but I also remember thinking he looked a bit unimpressive in the stand up, wasn't he slower than the deflated version of Silva? That fight seems like ages ago though and he certainly has potential. I'm definitely tuning in for this one

    Looks legit so far. Coker hasn't been throwing him cans either, which is nice for a change. Beating Ruth would be kind of a big deal and probably sets him up for a fight with Lima, who is top 5 himself.

    I'm on here to talk about fights and real shit. Not listen to UFC shills who can't appreciate talents outside of it.... I'd be on Facebook MMA pages if I wanted empty responses.

    He's been a big fish in a small pond for a long time. He has a few solid wins on his record but Ed is gonna be his biggest challenge by far. Ed is as legit as they come. If he can get past him then I think he'll do very well against most WWs in any organization

    He does have a win against Soldic, although Soldic has gotten a lot better since then.

    Not really. Anything can happen in any fight. 22-0 is beyond impressive

    Tonight will be a huge proving ground for him. If he can get past Ruth, the sky is the limit, not that Ruth is what I'd call a gatekeeper. Even if Ruth beats him, there's no shame in that. He has a bright future I believe.

    I only subscribe to one hype-train. And that belongs to a very young man named, Erick Silva. In fact, he's the youngest prospect a live.
