Still looking for first UFC win

Ibragimov lost to Roman Dolidze via TKO (strikes) at 4:15 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
Ibragimov joined the UFC back in August 2019 with a perfect 8-0 record. He has lost all three of his fights since, and this was the worst setback of them all. Ibragimov was crushed with a vicious knee to the face from Dolidze and it was academic from there. The big Russian was viewed as a decent prospect upon his arrival giving his past success and youth (25 years old), but it just hasn't happened. The odds are against Ibragimov receiving a fourth opportunity with the company.

In line for Fight Island
Light HeavyweightUFC
June 10, 2020
Ibragimov is in line to face Roman Dolidze in a light heavyweight matchup July 18 on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
Ibragimov is off to an 0-2 start in his UFC run, but perhaps a reset on Fight Island is just what the doctor ordered. He'll be taking on an undefeated prospect, but at just 25 years old himself, there's still a future in the sport even if he comes up short. Ibragimov has also averaged 5.23 significant strikes landed per minute and recorded three total takedowns in two UFC bouts, so there's potential to turn into a solid fantasy scorer if he's able to stick around.

Ibragimov lost to Ed Herman via unanimous decision (28-29, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Moscow, Russia.
Considering how exhausted he was, it's nothing short of a minor miracle that Ibragimov managed to see the final bell. Ibragimov took this fight as a late-notice replacement on less than two weeks' notice, so he deserves a bit of a break. While the fact he wasn't afforded a full training camp certainly played into this result, the fact of the matter is that Ibragimov looked pretty lousy in being submitted by Da Un Jung in his UFC debut in August. The Russian had won his first eight professional bouts prior to his arrival in the UFC.
Will fight at UFC Moscow

October 30, 2019
Ibragimov will face Ed Herman in a light heavyweight matchup at UFC Moscow on Nov. 9, Nolan King of USA Today reports.
Gadzhimurad Antigulov was initially scheduled to face Herman, but was removed from the card for undisclosed reasons, so Ibragimov will step in on short notice. Ibragimov is coming off a loss to Da Un Jung via submission in his UFC debut, but will head into the fight against Herman with an 8-1 record as a professional fighter. Ibragimov will look to regain momentum against Herman, who is coming off a victory over Patrick Cummins via TKO at UFC Rochester. Ibragimov carries slight advantages over Herman in height and reach.
Falls as biggest favorite on card

August 31, 2019
Ibragimov lost to Da Un Jung via submission (Guillotine Choke) at 2:00 of Round 3 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Shenzhen, China.
This fight came together less than a week ago and it ends up resulting in Ibragimov's first career loss. The 24-year-old Russian entered as the biggest favorite on the card, but slowed down considerably following a quick start. The finish came when Ibragimov left his neck exposed during an exchange between the two. He tapped out almost immediately. It's a crushing loss for a fighter who had some positive momentum as he got set to make his UFC debut.
Short-notice debut on tap

August 25, 2019
Ibragimov will take on Da Un Jung in a light heavyweight matchup at UFC Shenzhen on Aug. 31, Nolan King of reports.
It remains to be seen if this short-notice matchup between debuting combatants will be available for selection from a fantasy perspective, but it will be a difficult contest to predict with two lesser-known prospects coming from smaller circuits. Ibragimov brings plenty of momentum into this matchup, as he's 8-0 overall with five consecutive stoppages -- four of which came under the banner of the well-respected M-1 Global promotion. Both carry sizable winning streaks into this undercard bout.
