Khabib Nurmagomedov to fight Abel Trujillo at UFC 160
UFC 160 sees another lightweight bout added to its already impressive card as the unbeaten Khabib Nurmagomedov takes on Abelo Trujillo.
After turning in his most impressive performance to date last month at UFC on FX 7 in Brazil, Khabib Nurmagovedov (19-0-0) will be keen to once again impress whilst remaining undefeated. His performance in his last bout was so impressive that in the newly founded official UFC rankings he has earned a spot among the top ten lightweight fighters in the promotion. Nurmagomedov is superb in all areas of the game.
After getting his UFC jitters out of the way last December, Abel Trujillo (10-4-0) will be keen to build on the victory which he earned in his UFC debut. In that bout he put in a superb performance en route to taking out late replacement Marcus LeVesseur with knees to the body in the second round. Trujillo has great wrestling skills and can finish fights both on the feet and the ground.
UFC 160 takes place 25th May from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada and is expected to be headlined by a heavyweight title fight between Cain Velasquez and Antonio Silva.
