Dolidze last year failed in two attempts to make his UFC debut. A fighter with a record of 6-0 at first failed to obtain a Russian visa to meet in April with Gadjimurad by Anthology and then caught for doping and received a one-year disqualification, and his June bout against Vinicius Moreira was cancelled. Before signing with the UFC Dolidze fought in Ukraine in the promotion WWFC, where he was a champion and knocked out the last three opponents.
Ibragimov also debuted in the UFC with a 6-0 record c, however, lost both their fight in the octagon. In the second half of 2019 Da young Jung strangled him and UFC veteran ed Herman confidently defeated the Russian in three rounds.
Forecast for battle
Ibragimov showed himself a fearless drummer with a tendency to throw “bombs”. Dolidze it looks terrible finisher in stance and on the ground. The “Caucasian wolf” more skilled drummer and more athletic than Ibragimov.
Expect to see fireworks, but let’s assume that the fight will be short, and Dolidze will win a quick victory.
