MMA Sun 2014 Prospect Spotlight: The Middleweights – #8 – Ramazan Emeev

Coming in at number 8 on our middleweight prospect spotlight is the current M-1 Middleweight champion, Ramazan Emeev.  Emeev trains Emeevout of Team Gorec alongside recent UFC signee Rashid Magomedov.  There is a good chance that he has already captured the attention on North American promotions such as the UFC.  Back-to-back wins over UFC veteran Mario Miranda serve as a launching pad for his career and really showed that he can compete at a high level.  He does have a nice 11-2 career record and is on an 8-fight winning streak.  At only 26-years old, the native of Azerbaijan could be a name to watch out for in 2014.

Emeev is not particularly large for a middleweight.  At just  5’11 a drop down to the welterweight would be optimal for him in the future. He is a very well-rounded fighter who has shown off his skills in multiple arts.  While he seems to have very good grappling ability, he is very impressive in his striking.  He even recently beat VyacheslavVasilevsky in a boxing-type rules match. He possess really good power.  He is able and willing to use kicks and knees.  He also seems to have good quickness.  His takedown defense is very good as well.  He makes good use of a whizzer to counter takedowns.  All of this together make him very formidable.  I also think that his particular skill set would translate well against American competition.  His improvements are noticeable from fight to fight.  In his last fight with Emeev he show cased his punching power.  He dropped Miranda with a very solid right hand.  He also seems to know how to finish.  His hands are very heavy as Albert Duraev learned.  Emeev has been relatively inactive, having only fought one time in 2013 and only two times in 2012.  Emeev is not really a liability in any one place.

It is uncertain what is next for Emeev.  M-1 president Vadim Finklestein has said he would allow M-1 fighters to leave for the UFC, so that is certainly a possibility.  Due to his recent inactivity, we would think that he may need another win to get that opportunity.  However, we do think that he could do very well in the UFC right now.
