MMA fighter Vagab Vagabov “revs up” before the fight with Alex Nicholson as part of the REN TV Fight Club super series. This was announced on September 15 by MMA fighter Vyacheslav Vasilevsky.
According to him, he does not know Nicholson, but Vagabov is his friend. Vasilevsky admitted that they trained together and have known each other for a very long time.
“The pace at which he [Вагапов] now lives, charges him, that is, he feels himself in the clip. I know this feeling, I performed a lot in amateurs, in combat sambo. I had to take part there in a month both in a professional fight in MMA and in amateurs in combat sambo, and it also happened there in hand-to-hand combat, ”said Vasilevsky.
Vasilevsky stressed that now something similar is happening with Vagabov. According to him, the fighter caught this situation, “he is accelerating and charging from it.” As Vasilevsky noted, if an athlete does not perform for a long time, then he begins to burn out more often.
