Shahbazyan is undefeated in his mixed martial arts career thus far. This prodigy is 11-0 overall and 4-0 in the UFC, with three straight finishes in the first round.
Ronda Rousey manages Shahbazyan and she recently praised him during a recent video call with UFC President Dana White.
“That’s my fighter. He has always been special. He is that first generation of kids that only did MMA,” Rousey explained.
“He was obsessed with MMA when I was training at the gym. He was actually my throwing dummy,” Rousey said.
“It’s not like he is mediocre at everything. He is just f**king awesome at everything.
Like this kid started off like destroying everyone at grappling tournaments, destroying everyone at boxing tournaments, then we started MMA, it was just a no-brainer.” Rousey also revealed: “He was my training partner [at 15], he learned armbars from me.”

Edmen Shahbazyan will win this fight because he has the It Factor and is composed. I like him to win inside the distance at -260 which is available at Payperhead247.
