I'm sure many of you have heard the name ACB recently, with them recently signing guys like Takeya Mizugaki, Bubba Jenkins, Albert Tumenov and whatnot, some of you might even be familiar with Russian Org, or at least with some of their fighters.
But to those that don't really know much about them, I post this to, well, get you hyped up for their upcoming show. It features some of the best prospects on the european scene. Plus some tough vets like Vinny Magalhaes, Pat Healy, David Mitchell and the guy who's probably the best MW - Next to Ramazan Emeev - not signed to UFC or Bellator, Mamed Khalidov
While he didn't have the best showing of his career in his last fight, Mamed remains one of the most dangerous and experienced fighters to have never fought in the UFC. A finishing machine, Khalidov is a threat to anyone wherever the fight goes, boasting some notable finishes over fighters such as Michal Materla, Maiquel Falcao, Melvin Manhoef, Kendall Grove, Matt Lindland and Jorge Santiago to name a few.
Standing in front of him however, is british fighter Luke Barnatt, who has been on a roll ever since getting canned by the UFC. He could very well be signed again if he were to stop Mamed's streak though.
British grappler Saul Rogers, who is perhaps most known for his run on The Ultimate Fighter which culminated with him not being able to fight on the finale due to Visa Issues, will also make an appearance against Pat Healy, who hasn't had much success in recent fights, and is coming off back-to-back first round KO losses to Gesias Cavalcante and Leandro Silva.
Prospects Dean Garnett and Michael Tobin - who have a combined record of 20-0-1 - will lock horns on the card too. One of the most notable Swedish prospects MaxNunes will also fight on this card against the 3-0 always aggressive Batraz Agnaev. The winner of that fight will surely end up on the radar of some people.
Brian Kelleher, who has been on a very good run that includes two wins over the current ROC FW champ Julio Arce, will be fighting on this card as well. And Bellator veteran Bubba Jenkins will make his ACB debut against former title challenger Ali Bagov.
Overall, the card has some pretty interesting and fun matchups. All that's left is to hope that the fights don't get cancelled.
The best part is that the event will be streamed on Youtube for free, and the fights will subsequently be uploaded to their channel.
