Omari Akhmedov entered his last bout as a middleweight but next the time he enters the Octagon it will be as a welterweight.
“My biggest concern was about the weight because my opponent was way bigger than me,” said Akhmedov to MMA Fighting. “But, for my next fights, I’m going to fight at 170 because this guy was huge. I think I need to cut more because all these guys are bigger than me and it’s really tough to fight with them.”
Akhmedov is 12-0 after Saturday’s win.
