Russian MMA fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov, who has no defeat on his account, is preparing for a fight with American mixed martial artist Justin Gajee. The fight will be held under the auspices of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. It will take place at UFC 254 in late October on Yas Island in the United Arab Emirates.
As the Russian athlete said, this fight is very interesting for him. It's curious what the opponent will be like on the ground. In terms of endurance, the fighter considers himself two heads taller than the American. As for the strike, according to Khabib Nurmagomedov, in his case, many underestimate it. The Russian noted that he has been performing in the professional ring since the age of 12, and during this time he did not have a single scratch. In turn, Gaethje was knocked out twice. He is a tough and staunch opponent, but he received a lot of damage, so Nurmagomedov believes that he is superior to him in striking technique.
The Russian fighter admitted that the American can be the leader in defense against the fight, but he does not have enough stamina, and he plans to play on this. It is difficult to judge what the opponent will be on the ground, it will be possible to test it only during the fight.
