This Saturday night live in Abu Dhabi and available on ESPN+, Jordan Williams will take on Nassourdine Imavov in a middleweight bout on UFC Fight Island 4’s preliminary card.
Williams comes in as a slight favorite with a 9-3-1 MMA record, and is making his UFC debut. His knockout victory of Gregory Rodrigues at Dana White’s Contender Series on September 15th in just 139 seconds earned him this trip to Fight Island, and the 29-year-old from Santa Rosa, California has seven knockouts and one submission on his resume.
Imavov appears to have a completely different style. With an 8-2 record while making his UFC debut, four of his eight MMA wins coming via submission. The 25-year-old from France is also moving up from welterweight to middleweight for this fight.
This appears to be a classic striker vs. a taller grappler battle.
