    Movsaru Evloev was picked up by an opponent on the list // Russian fighter in case of victory over Bryce Mitchell may get a chance for a championship fight

    Published on

    One of the brightest domestic fighters in mixed martial arts (MMA), Movsar Evloev, got a chance to take part in the fight for the title of UFC champion, the main promotion in this kind of promotion, in featherweight (up to 66 kg). In order to strengthen the reputation of an unconditional contender for the title, Movsar Evloev, who still does not have a single misfire in his track record, will need to deal in November with the American Bryce Mitchell, who has also not yet suffered defeat in MMA.

    The main promotion in mixed martial arts, the UFC, has confirmed that the central fight of its tournament, which will be held on November 5 in Las Vegas, will be a fight between American Bryce Mitchell and Russian Movsar Evloev in the category up to 66 kg. The site MMAJunkie, one of the most popular among all MMA coverage specialists, commented on the news, describing the upcoming match as an “exciting” rivalry.

    In this there is nothing strange, given the importance of the fight and the details of the biographies of its participants. ESPN, who will be broadcasting the November tournament, boldly called them “challengers” for the featherweight title, essentially making it clear that the winner may well be given a chance after it. fight for that title. It is currently owned by Australian Alexander Volkanovski. The 34-year-old veteran is one of the UFC’s brightest stars and is currently at the top of his list of top fighters, regardless of weight class. The problem is that Volkanovski has essentially reigned supreme in the featherweight division for quite some time now, since 2019. And he managed to defeat the most dangerous among his experienced rivals – Max Holloway – as many as three times.

    pull up one of the younger athletes. And 28-year-old Movsar Evloev looks like an ideal candidate in this sense.

    He got into the promotion in 2019 and only strengthened his reputation with his performances. In the UFC, Evloev fought six fights and won all of them. The Russian had no early victories, but, as a rule, he had a huge advantage over his rivals. Moreover, this applies not only to the ground work that is usual for Evloev, but also to the stand.

    At the same time, you need to know that his opponents were mainly well-known fighters with ambitions – such as Enrique Barzola, Mike Grandi, Nick Lenz, Hakim Davodu. In his last fight – in June of this year – Evloev dealt with the American Dan Ige, surprising the experts with a convincing victory over a classy opponent.

    Mitchell also has an impeccable record of 15 victories, and six of them were also won already after moving to the UFC over fairly strong opponents like Edson Barbosa, whom he defeated in March. In the ranking of the strongest UFC featherweights, Bryce Mitchell and Movsar Evloev are located side by side today – in ninth and tenth positions. But after the November duel, one of them will skyrocket in the hierarchy.
