Russian Welterweight Rustam Khabilov, who signed a contract with Bellator MMA last week, would not like to fight Andrey Koreshkov and Yaroslav Amosov, but does not completely rule out the possibility of holding these matches.
“I am not a supporter to their fight, but accept any challenge I throw out here no matter friend or foe,” said Khabilov in an interview on “Ustica”. “If one of them wants to fight with me – please, no problem. Especially if there is a question of a Challenger match. As it is, I don’t want to. Bellator has a lot of interesting fighters to fight with»
According to Khabilov, his debut in the organization may take place before the end of this year.
“I know that this year they are going to hold a tournament in Europe – I will try to get there. But if you have less than a month to prepare, it will not make sense to go out, because you need to prepare for the debut properly. Starting from the end of November, I am ready to perform. December-January I’m ready for any date».
