Brad Tavares in vs Shahbazyan at 244

Just went to tapology to see if any fights have been added to the card and I see Jotko is out and Tavares is in vs Shahbazyan.

Great fight here. Tavares is one of the most underrated fighters in the promotion. 15-6 in the UFC and three of his loses are to Adesanya, Yoel, and Whittaker. Boetch is his only other lose in the past eight years.

Shabazyan is only 21, much younger than most who have made it to the UFC, already 3-0 in the UFC, 10-0 in MMA, good everywhere.

Great fight.

My favorite card of the year in UFC.

Card is fucking quality.

Looking forward to the bitch boys who will complain that this isn't PPV worthy.

People complain about shit cards like 243 because cards like 244 are possible.

Who is Shahbazyan again

A talented kid that has been training at Glendale under Edmond Tarverdyan since he was a kid. Pretty much been in karate/kickboxing/boxing/BJJ/wrestling since he was like 10 or 12 years old. Tarverdyan said before he entered the UFC that the kid was going all the way to the title. Managed by Ronda's managment company.

Thanks bro.

Your picks did not hold up to good here lol, 1-6, don’t worry we have all had those nights with picks.

The guy looked sharp, I had no idea he had three (?) UFC wins before.

Edmen is really well rounded and has great fight iq

Yep 1 DWCS (contender series) win and 3 UFC prior. So he is now 5-0 for the promotion and 4-0 in the actual UFC if you don't count DWCS.

I like shabazian,  hope they bring him up right 

I agree, dude is the real deal and so young. My only question is how the fuck did Tarverdyan of all people create that?!

Head movement.

Any coach that can beat prime Aldo can develop a talent like Shahbazyan.
