Mehman Mammadov: "I want to win the belt"

"The race went very well. It was a big responsibility for us. It is gratifying that the tournament was hosted by Azerbaijan."

This was said by the Azerbaijani MMA fighter Mehman Mammadov (57 kg) after the victory in the "Landmark 7" Tournament held in Baku, reports.

The athlete who defeated Ferit Goktepe from Türkiye said that before the match, he thought that the match would end quickly: "But I got injured in the first round. I couldn't fight like I wanted to. My plan has completely changed. I love to fight on my feet. Thank goodness I won."

Mammadov also spoke about his goals: "After that, I want to stay in "Rizin" and fight to win the belt. A person is as old as he feels. Age is a number. We didn't have this chance before. My age is not a problem, I can get Rizin belt. There are not many battles in Azerbaijan. I wanted my child to be with me after the victory. It was possible and I am very happy."

It should be noted that at the end of the 3-round, Mammadov defeated Goktepe and was declared the winner by the decision of the judges.
