Name: Ramiz Brahimaj
Opponent: Court McGee
I think a lot of people got off the Ramiz Brahimaj hype train when he lost his debut. To be fair, it was a tough opening opponent in Max Griffin and a freak injury that ended the fight (Google it… or maybe don’t). However, I think that fight was far from the expertise that we can expect to see from the Fortis MMA product. He’s an excellent grappler who won IBJJF Worlds at blue belt, and has since been promoted to purple. I, personally, think that it barely highlights the level of skill that he brings to the table.
I also like this matchup for him. Despite facing yet another tough veteran in Court McGee, the striking advantage should actually be in Brahimaj’s favor. I think he should be able to get some wrestling and top control in as well, but if he’s not he should at least be able to stall out McGee’s efforts. That gives him a slew of ways to win and at plus money, that’s all too easy.
