ANALYSIS
Magomedov's patience served him well in this fight. Sy is a tricky guy to strike with. He runs away for portions of the fight, and then he pounces with strikes. Magomedov made it a point to chase his opponent and score without eating too many counters. He looked solid and won the majority of the striking exchanges. In the second round, Magomedov changed it up and went for his wrestling. He controlled the rest of the fight on the ground and threatened with a variety of submissions. He moves on to the finals where he will likely be a sizable favorite over fellow finalist Louis Taylor.
