Mixed Style American MMA fighter Dustin Porrier said that in a fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov he will show that a Russian athlete can also bleed. He wrote about this in a column for MMA Junkie.
“I am confident in my abilities. I am going to do something that no one has ever done before, ”said Porrier. He recalled that Nurmagomedov’s account has no defeats, and therefore it seems that it is impossible to defeat him. “I’m going to show the world that this guy can also bleed, that he can be hurt, that he can make mistakes,” the soldier wrote.
