Muhammad Mokaev had an explosive debut with a huge submission win at UFC London. The England-based fighter had a lot of hype heading into the event and he delivered in a big way.
Now, Muhammad Mokaev finds himself in an excellent position to get a big fight next. He’s hoping for a big fight against former UFC title challenger, Tim Elliott.
“Top 15 guys – I know there’s top 10 guys like Tim Elliott,” Mokaev said after UFC London via MMAJunkie. “I’d love to fight him. I know maybe people say it’s too fast – you have to go through the guys. If Cody would have beat me tonight, he’d have been top 15. … So why not put me in the top 15? I’ll fight anyone in the top 15 and I’ll be fast-tracked to the title. He’s been around this game for a long time.”
UFC London was an excellent event that saw plenty of English talent breakout and show off their skills. Muhammad Mokaev opened things up in an excellent fashion as he locked on a tight guillotine choke in a matter of seconds.
Muhammad Mokaev wants to beat Jon Jones’ record and become the youngest ever UFC champion. Many fighters have said that in the past but no one has been able to do so after taking big losses during their runs.
Tim Elliot does not appear to be interested in the fight as he’s looking to fight people ahead of him in the rankings. It will be interesting to see what the UFC chooses to do with Muhammad Mokaev.
