Having studied Ramazanov’s way of working within the Circle, Soldich seems to have understood everything about the Dagestan wrestler.

Speaking exclusively MMA Superfan, “Robocop” described exactly what he expected Ramazanov to do to put the fight down:

“He’s good in the cage. He takes advantage of it [takedown] single leg to body lock, like Khabib [Nurmagomedov] does. So everyone drops a single leg with this game and goes for a body lock.

Dagestan fighter Murad Ramazanov will indeed have a similar fighting style to Khabib Nurmagomedov, prioritizing the takedown, taking control from a high position, and then going down to his back.
