Absolute Championship Akhmat (ACA) is back for another night of fights tonight, and we will have your ACA 130 results right here. The event will be broadcast live from Grozny, Chechnya, Russia, and will be a night of MMA action with a new, fresh headliner from the bantamweight division. The action begins with the preliminary card at 9:20am ET/6:20am PT, followed by the main card at 2:30pm ET/11:30am PT, and can be seen via pay-per-view on ACA’s website.
Originally, ACA 130 was set to be headlined by Abubakar Vagaev vs Ustarmagomed Gadzhidaudov for the vacant ACA welterweight title. However, thanks to MMA DNA’s Marcel Dorff on Twitter, we have an update a day before the event saying this fight has been canceled due to “Vagaev had health problems during the weight cut,” and he adds, “Kickboxing fight between Zabit Samedov and Didier Kilola Lubika added.”
The new ACA 130 headliner will be a bantamweight showdown between Russian-born Abdul-Rakhman Dudaev and Rodrigo Praia of Brazil. “The Warrior” Dudaev is a former title contender in ACA and is fighting hard to earn another title shot. He is coming off two wins in ACA and his most recent is via TKO. His opponent, Praia, has had most of his wins come by of TKO. He is an exciting fighter and is coming off a win in his last fight. Both fighters are looking to make fireworks in the main event and prove why they may deserve a title shot.
Also on the ACA 130 main card is “Ivan The Terrible” Dzhikhad Yunusov, who will meet fellow Russian featherweight Islam Omarov. Omarov is undefeated in his MMA career and will be looking to keep his record unblemished. His opponent, Yunusov, is on a multi-fight TKO streak and will be looking to continue that trend. Additionally, Nurbergen Sharipov of Kazakhstan will fight Brazilian Felipe Froes at featherweight. Froes will be looking to get back in the win column; his last fight was a loss in a featherweight title fight against Magomedrasul Khasbulaev. Sharipov, who is riding a two-fight win streak, will have other plans.
The ACA 130 main card will also see two Russian-born welterweights in Khusein Khaliev against Stanislav Vlasenko. Both of these gentlemen are currently on a winning streak and won’t be looking to let that go without a fight. Another welterweight fight in Georgiy Kichigin, of Kazakhstan, versus Russian Chersi Dudaev. Headlining the prelim fights will be Yunus Evloev, of Russia against undefeated Brazilian Alexsandro Praia in a flyweight clash. Brazilian UFC veteran Elias Silverio will also be featured on the prelims as he fights Kyrgyzstan’s Altynbek Mamashev at welterweight.
