Ilia Topuria is not only making his UFC debut as an undefeated 8-0 prospect, but he has a 100% win finishing rate as well. Topuria also has first-round finishes in all but one of his fights, and that fight’s finish came in the second round. One could guess by looking at the number of submission finishes on Topuria’s record that he is a high-level submission grappler that has already faced good competition. Topuria has utilized triangle, rear-naked, and anaconda chokes on his opponents.
