LAS VEGAS – Nazim Sadykhov wants to compete on the same UFC 281 card as Longo-Weidman MMA teammate Matt Frevola.
Sadykhov (7-1) earned a UFC contract Tuesday when he took out Ahmad Hassanzada in the third round at Dana White’s Contender Series 50.
“That’s Matt Frevola back there. He’s on MSG. Throw me in MSG with him over there,” Sadykhov told reporters, including MMA Junkie, after his win. “November, let’s get it.”
He continued, “I’m not gonna do these callouts yet, but trust me, I’m gonna cause a sh*t storm.”
Sadykhov, who’s finished all but one of his professional fights, wasn’t entirely happy with his performance but knows he did what’s necessary to impress the UFC brass.
“I feel like I let some mistakes happen, but overall, I got what I wanted,” Sadykhov said. “I got my finish. That’s what they want on Contender’s, that’s what they want in the UFC, that’s what I want. So, yes, there’s things I can say I can improve on or work on or not make those mistakes, but I got my finish.”
