"I came here to win. I had no doubt about it. It will always be like this."
Idman.biz informs that this was said by Uzbek Ilhom Nazimov (66 kg), who won the "Landmark 7" International Tournament of "Rizin" in Baku.
He was declared the winner by decision of the judges at the end of the 3-round fight against Jaures Dea (Cameroon). Ilhom said that he did not think that his opponent would endure until the end: "I congratulate Dea for being so strong. Of course, I won because I was stronger. Faith also played a big role in winning."
He said that his future goal is to fight with the belt holder in 66 kg: I would like to meet all the top athletes in "Rizin". I know that Vugar Karamov is the champion in this weight. I will watch the meeting. It will be an interesting battle. It doesn't matter who will have the belt, I will come for him and win."
Nazimov also spoke about his acquaintance with Rafael Fiziyev, who played in the UFC: "He is my older brother. He is a very good, positive person. We always train together. I get a lot of advice from him. We are in a team."
It should be noted that the main fight of the "Landmark 7" Tournament will be held between Vugar Karamov and Chihiro Suzuki (Japan).
