A product out of Spain, Ilia Topuria is no doubt someone, to watch. Topuria is a monster grappler and submission ace with all wins coming by submission. To get it to the mat he has solid wrestling, timing his shots perfectly. Glue-like on the mat he is great at sticking to the back and transitioning smoothly. Topuria is a tactical grappler with improving striking. He has good crisp hands but is still a bit green. Still a great prospect.
Topuria is currently signed with Brave CF but if he becomes available to sign, the UFC should be calling him up.
