Timur ValievABOUT TIMUR VALIEV:

– A dynamic athlete with a non-stop motor to attack

Top-notch wrestler who owns a plethora of takedowns – hard to stop his takedowns because they come from so many angles – throws, double legs, single legs, knee taps, etc…

Power in his hands

Huge upside and potential to be a threat to 135-pound champ Marlon Moraes’ throne; Valiev has only been fighting for four years and his skill set is growing by leaps and bounds

– Trains at Jackson & Winklejohn MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico, one of the premiere schools in the world (alongside UFC champ Jon Jones, Khabib Nurmagomedov, Rustam Khabilov, Donald Cerrone, etc..)

Timur Valiev will be on the undercard fights, which will stream live on WSOF.com beginning at 7 p.m. ET / 4 p.m. PT local time.
