Eddie Bravo can’t predict how a fight between lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson would go, but what he can promise is that Nurmagomedov will be tested like he’s never been before.
“With that caliber fight, I don’t make predictions – but we are planning on beating him,” Bravo said.
… (I) can’t give away too much, though, but the difference is, everybody’s running from Khabib on the ground.
So they spend the whole time trying to get up to the fence and trying to get back up.
The D’Arce choke has become one of Ferguson’s signature moves, and he’s used it to submit Lando Vannata and Edson Barboza.
Bravo admits that Ferguson is in for a very tough fight in Nurmagomedov, which is why he has refrained from making a prediction.
I promise you that’s going to be different – it’s not going to be Tony trying to drag himself up a fence and Khabib just riding that.”. »
