MMA Oddsbreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with XFC 27 featherweight Farkhad Sharipov as he prepares for his main event tonight (Dec. 13, 2013) against Deivision Francisco Ribeiro at L.C. Walker Arena in Muskegon, Michigan.
The talented Jungle MMA-based fighter has a very strong grappling attack and he feels he’ll be able to utilize it successfully against his more kickboxing-centered opponent:
“[Ribeiro]’s gonna try to counter attack me on my way in with my striking, but I’m going to try to take him down right away. Once I take him down, I don’t see any troubles passing his guard or submitting him.”
