29 | 5’10″ | Makhachkala, Russia | 12-0 | 8 Finishes | 5 KO/TKOs, 3 Submissions (RNC) | Combined Opponents’ Record: 63-34-1 | Best Win – Rousimar Palhares (19-8-1)
Aliaskhab Khizriev is coming off a big win against former UFC fighter Rousimar Palhares. The problem is that was nearly two years ago.
Khizriev has heavy hands but is a bit wild on the feet. However, it’s on the mat that is where he wants to be. He is a strong athlete so the takedowns come naturally to him. Khizriev is a nightmare in top position as his ground and pound is crazy good. He’s very active in his ground and pound and if he can posture up, he will let his hands rain down — and he can do it consistently across the whole fight.
