Javier Mendez: "I expect Umar Nurmagomedov to become UFC champion in 5-6 fights"

“Umar is an amazing fighter. And I expect him to become the world champion in 5-6 fights if everything goes well,” Javier Mendez said in an interview with UFC Russia. “But he is very different from Khabib. He has a completely different style of fighting, he prefers to fight in a standing position, but at the same time he is good in absolutely everything. Umar is strong in all aspects.”

I saw the fights of his opponent [Sergey Morozov]. He’s strong, very fast. And given his speed, he will be a very dangerous opponent, so we need to tread carefully. But, to be honest, I expect a bright victory from Umar. At this stage, he is simply above the level and surpasses his opponent, “added Mendez.
