Absolute Combat Akhmat (ACA) continues to crank out high-quality cards featuring some of the toughest fighters from Russia, Central Asia, and beyond. Today, there will be two titles on the line in the lightweight and featherweight divisions. Keep it right here as MMASucka gives you live ACA 131 results in real time.
Chechnya’s Abdulaziz Abdulvakhabov (18-2) will attempt to defend his ACA belt for the first time in his second reign. Having never been finished and only lost twice, Abdulvakhabov is one of the most successful and dominant fighters with the ACA. He’s been with the promotion for seven years, earning wins over Brian Foster, Eduard Vartanyan, and Ali Bagov.
He’ll battle UFC veteran Hacran Dias of Brazil for the title. Dias (26-6-1), 37, has won three straight since being released from the UFC, with his last two fights under the ACA banner. The BJJ black belt was a terror on the Brazilian regional scene before being signed to the UFC and finding mixed results.
The co-main event sees the featherweight belt on the line as Magomedrasul Khasbulaev fights Ramazan Kishiev. Khasbulaev (33-8), the champ, is a Dagestani who trains alongside Alexei Oleinik and Andrey Koreshkov in St. Petersburg. He’ll be facing Kishiev (17-3), who fights out of the Karachay-Cherkess Republic of Russia. Kishiev will be looking to make four in a row when he tries to take the title from Khasbulaev’s hands.
Also on the card is Russian juggernaut Ivan “Ural Hulk” Shtyrkov colliding with Artur Astakhov, undefeated company man Khuseyn Shaykhaev against Pavel Vitruk, and heavyweight journeyman Geronimo dos Santos against Adam Bogatyrev.
