Magomedov: Soon White will regret signing Russians to the UFC


Recently a wave of new Russian fighters have been making an impact in the UFC, and heavyweight Ruslan Magomedov believes it's just a matter of time before they are dominating the divisions:

"Soon UFC president Dana White will regret signing Russian fighters to his promotion," Magomedov said. "Just remember how things turned out at Bellator, when the bosses said 'let them (russians) come to us and try fight within our promotion,' and what happened? The Russians beat up a couple of dozen strong fighters, took away their titles, won grand prix and now Bellator's CEO Bjorn Rebney don't know what to do about the thing."

Magomedov is a heavyweight who recently signed with the organization after starting his career 9-0, including victories over two former heavyweight champions Tim Sylvia and Andrei Arlovski.

Of course he'll regret it. If you've ever spent time around Russians, then you know exactly what I mean.

Is this guy any good? Sylvia & Rico aren't what they used to be.

VTFU, Ruslan sounds a bit silly here, Dana is signing him and them because they can fight. Ruslan needs to actually get quicker and maybe a bit lighter, not sure he will do all that well.
