Amin Ayoub landed in Bahrain this week already with the knowledge that he wouldn’t be defending his world title against Ahmed Amir, who had fallen injured. However, Amir’s replacement proved to be as worthy as ever of a fight against the champ as Mashrabjon Ruziboev tested Ayoub’s will throughout their three-round war.
In the end, however, the submission attempts and damage on the ground were too much for Ruziboev, who impressed by coming in on a week’s notice and pushing Amin Ayoub to the limit.
After the fight, Ahmed Amir, who is in attendance, and Amin Ayoub exchanged barbs, building more anticipation for a possible match-up for the title in the future.
