Former UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub, who hosts his own analytical podcast, is surprised at the ease with which Sean Strickland dealt with Abusupian Magomedov, who could not resist the top UFC middleweight.
“On paper, Sean was the favorite, and it makes sense, but despite the fact that Magomedov had not fought at the highest level before, it was obvious that he could create problems for Strickland – he outnumbered him and had a good set of skills, including wrestling. “, – said the American in the next issue of his podcast.
“I thought the fight could go all five rounds and Strickland might win by decision, but he just crushed him with his pressure. For the first time I see a Dagestani so mentally broken. Sean just beat the shit out of this guy.”
Recall that the fight between Sean Strickland and Abus Magomedov, who headlined the UFC on ESPN 48 tournament in Las Vegas last weekend, ended at 4:20 of the second round with the victory of the American by technical knockout.
