Rustam Khabilov has made two appearances inside the Octagon and a suplex led to both victories. Jorge Masvidal won’t have any of that and has plans if Khabilov goes for a suplex.
“He’s gonna find out I’m not easy to take down or hold down,” said Masvidal on Sherdog Radio. “If I get launched? He better hope my neck breaks on impact because if I get up, I’m gonna try to knock his f—— head out of the cage. If I get embarrassed like that, I’m gonna kill him. I’m gonna find a way to hurt him bad.”
Masvidal joined the UFC this year and came in as a former Strikeforce lightweight title contender. After a decision win over Tim Means, he submitted Michael Chiesa with one second left in round two.
Khabilov is also 2-0 for the UFC. He used the suplex to knockout Vinc Pichel and the same move injured Yancy Medeiros enough where the fight was waived.
They can be seen on the main card of UFC Fight for the Troops 3. It’s today, November 6, and comes from Fort Campbell in Kentucky.
