Movsar Evloev


Takes easy decision in Abu Dhabi
July 25, 2020
Evloev defeated Mike Grundy via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
Evloev deserves credit for working through some early issues in this one. He allowed Grundy to land six successful takedowns but did an excellent job of working his way right back to his feet. This fight was lopsided in the striking department. Evloev landed 96 total strikes compared to just 25 from Grundy. The Russian has proven to be a pretty well rounded mixed martial artist over the course of his first three UFC bouts (all victories), with the one major complaint against him being that all three of those wins have come via decision. Evloev is a clear fighter to keep an eye on moving forward at 135 pounds.
