Time for Ferguson to finish his run:
Tony Ferguson – Bobby Green. It’s time for El Cucuy to finish his career
With such a resume, it was only a matter of time before Roman turned his focus back to professional sports and ended up in MMA. His career began in 2016, but not in the most prestigious promotions. Innate perseverance and self-confidence helped the fighter get to the UFC.
Fiziev’s next opponent in the UFC will be Gamrot.
The debut was not the best – Kopylov could not cope with the excitement and lost to a more experienced opponent Karl Roberson. However, it was not in the rules of the Russians to withdraw in the face of temporary difficulties. He emphasized standing work. Incredibly, in a short amount of time, Roman developed into a hard puncher with a killer right hand and masterful low kick connection.
The heyday of his UFC career was the January fight with American Punahele Soriano. The Russian landed a large number of blows, and in the second round the judge stopped the fight, reasonably fearing for the American’s health.

In the UFC, Ribeiro had two fights. So far, he only has one victory on his account: over Joseph Holmes via technical knockout. And also a defeat in a duel with Abdul Alhassan.
Roman Kopylov and Claudio Ribeiro profess a similar fighting style. They try to suppress the initiative of the opponent and dictate their conditions in the Octagon with powerful blows. The Russian is much smarter in terms of tactics and timing, in favor of the Brazilian – natural malleability and plasticity.
What to bet?
Kopylov and Ribeiro prefer not to work on the ground. It is more suitable for them to act on their feet, but here the Russian has a technical advantage. His defense is much more reliable than the Brazilian’s. He tries to win through the exchange, and Kopylov knows how to crush the opponent from a safe distance.
Ankalaev will fight at UFC 294.
The Russian is extremely motivated for this fight. He will try to calmly swing the opponent from a distance, waiting for the moment to land a series of blows. And there is no doubt that Claudio will get tired of waiting and go ahead without preparation. So let’s bet on Kopylov’s victory by knockout for a coefficient of 1.96.
