Accepting 25kg of young talent, MMA Nick Maximov still kills strong opponents for 3 innings

The bravery of young martial artist Nick Maximov received a lot of praise from UFC President Dana White.

This morning, November 18, a series of martial arts selection events for UFC – Dana White Contender Series (DWCS) officially ended the fourth season with 5 matches.

In particular, the most special confrontation is probably the heavy battle between the 1997 American born puncher, Nick Maximov and the experienced puncher Oscar Costa.

Entering the heavyweight match, Nick Maximov just went on the radio with a weight of 209lbs (94kg), which is close to the lowest level in this weight class (206lbs). In contrast, Oscar Costa weighed in at 263lbs (119kg), nearly hitting the ceiling with 265lbs of the heavyweight.

Handicap opponents to 25kg, this is probably the most difference in a modern UFC match (since the weight classification law came into existence in 2000).

However, that did not make Maximov falter against Costa, he continuously used the attacks and took advantage of the above to attack during 3 rounds.

Young boxers are not tired of the 25kg distance that uses wrestling owls. Oscar Costa’s massive weight and grumpy body were now a burden to him. Meanwhile, Maximov with the ability to control the arena easily throws the rice at the opponent.

Outstanding winning on all 3 assessment scores (30-26, 30-26, 29-28), Nick Maximov maintained a 6-match winning streak on the professional MMA floor, becoming the name of Dana White President attention.

The overwhelming victory helped Nick Maximov recorded a 6-match winning streak. Unfortunately, the efforts of Nick Maximov have not been able to help the young man get an official contract to play for the UFC. In return, Dana White announced he will get a spot in 2021 selection season – The Ultimate Fighter when the show returns.

In addition to Nick Maximov, the remaining 4 boxers who won at DWCS 36, JP Buys, Gloria de Paula, Tucker Lutz and Victoria Leonardo all won tickets to UFC, closing a successful DWCS season.
