Che, who spent the last few years on the mats at Tiger Muay Thai as a training partner/assistant wrestling coach, explains the level of wrestling/grappling Rafael Fiziev possesses.
Che on Fiziev’s powerful takedown defense:
“His hips feel so heavy. When he sprawls on you or when he puts his hip into you, it almost feels like a strike. Like you’re getting hit in the back of the head or like your upper back. So that plays a big advantage for him.
“He knows how to rotate his hips in such a way that the sprawl feels much more stronger cause he’s putting his entire bodyweight into one side or he can off-balance you to the other side.”
Rafael “Ataman” Fiziev is a 28 year old male fighter from Kyrgyzstan with 10 pro wins and 1 loss. Fiziev is scheduled to fight Brad Riddell at UFC Fight Night: Font vs. Aldo on Saturday December 4, 2021.
