UFC on ESPN 14's Movsar Evloev talks win over Mike Grundy, future plans

ABU DHABI β€” Movsar Evloev came into his UFC on ESPN 14 fight with a reputation for outstanding grappling, and he certainly lived up to his billing Saturday.

The Russian featherweight remained unbeaten after demonstrating his proficiency on the mat over and over β€” as well as showing good standup work β€” in his unanimous decision victory over Mike Grundy.

“He did exactly what I expected from him,” Evloev said after the fight. “I am young, still undefeated and I got a win over a very tough opponent. I am hoping it will send UFC a message, that I am ready for top opponents. I would like to fight Arnold Allen because I think I could beat him and take his place. I am one step closer to the UFC gold and it’s just a matter of time when I will get it.”
