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.

Knockout Costa, Israel Adesanya was opened by Dana White to fight Jon Jones

After overcoming the Paulo Costa challenge, Israel Adesanya’s desire to challenge Jon Jones was given the green light by President Dana White.

TKO win over Paulo Costa at UFC 253 helped Israel Adesanya increase their record 20-0 on the MMA. This is also his 100th win on both Kickboxing and mixed martial arts.

However, at the UFC alone, Adesanya’s journey can now really begin. Because after two successful defending matches, the Nigerian puncher has the conditions to seek bigger goals – specifically, Jon Jones.

This was confirmed by President Dana White just before UFC 253 when talking about the ability of two punches to encounter. “Jon has yet to officially go heavy.” – White said. “We have yet to determine his intentions.”

Since giving up the championship title, Jon Jones has yet to officially join Heavyweight.

“If it was Jon Jones, you would sit and wait for what happens. Who is win? How to win? Maybe let them defend the belt first in the game and come back and steal the belt. ” – White opened up his wishes to Jones.

“Either he can go heavy, or stay and fight Adesanya. Jon Jones is in the perfect position right now. “

In fact, the UFC 253 ends up giving Jon Jones a lot of options. The heavyweight he once dominated welcomes a new king – Jan Blachowicz, who has challenged Jones earlier.

If you do not want to upgrade or return to win the title, the battle to Israel Adesanya is also a good choice for Jon Jones. Even this may be the hottest UFC match in these two weight categories for many years.

Israel Adesanya vs. Jon Jones was given a green light by Dana White.

Once referred to as “the new generation Anderson Silva”, Israel Adesanya with its flamboyant effect can do what the Brazilian legend has not done before – challenge Jon Jones. Because in the past, although he had played in the semi-heavyweight category, Silva could not complete the Superfight as expected by the audience.

Now, when the mid-tier doesn’t have many names that can immediately compete for the title, Israel Adesanya has reason to urge the UFC to hold a Superfight with Jones.
