10 Middleweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2020


Abusupiyan “Abus” Magomedov

29 | 6’2″ | Dueren, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany | 23-4-1 | 18 Finishes | 13 KO/TKOs, 5 Submissions (Kimura, Guillotine, RNC) | Combined Opponents’ Record: 210-244 | Best Win – Danillo Villefort (30-5) 

Abusupiyan Magomedov has been forgotten since 2018. He competed in the 2018 PFL middleweight tournament and was a favorite to win. He got to the finals and lost to Louis Taylor in a fight that would look much different if they ran it back. At only 29 years old he has a lot of experience at 28 fights fighting some good competition as well. Magomedov has lost to three solid fighters but he does have a win over current UFC fighter Jessin Ayari.

Abus has everything you look for in a fighter moving up in the ranks. He has that tall build fighting long using his jab and kicks perfectly at a distance. Magomedov is a combination striker always going to the body mixing that in with combinations. Impressive footwork exploding forward covering a lot of distance but getting back out when needed. For a plus the TDD is awesome and he has a sick guillotine he has hit many times.
