Top Five wins of Nassourdine Imavov

5. Nassourdine Imavov vs Ian Heinisch: Kicking off our list is Imavov’s TKO victory over Ian Heinisch in 2021. The Frenchman showed his impeccable timing and underrated striking by knocking out Heinisch in the second round. Imavov countered Heinisch’s leg kicks with two perfectly timed jabs. This hurt Heinisch. The Frenchman then saw his opportunity and jumped in with a flurry of punches and a devastating knee until the referee stopped the fight.

4. Nassourdine Imavov vs Jonathan Meunier: Fourth on our list is Imavov’s all-round display against Jonathan Meunier at Ares FC in 2019. The Frenchman put on a well-rounded performance, mixing up great timing and power with unpredictable level changes. He eventually got the stoppage at the end of the first round, thanks to some vicious ground and pound.

3. Nassourdine Imavov vs Mateusz Gluch: At the third place on our list is Imavov’s incredible submission victory over Mateusz Gluch at TFL 18 in 2019. The Frenchman showed his wrestling prowess by pulling off one of the most impressive submissions in the game. Imavov set it up very well and, at the right time, switched to a Kimura. Gluch could not escape, thus giving Imavov the win in the very first round.

2. Nassourdine Imavov vs Yanis Cheurfa: Another impressive submission comes in at second place. It is Nassourdine Imavov’s third professional fight against Yanis Cheurfa in 2016. Imavov and Cheurfa found themselves locked in at the corner of the ring, with Cheurfa having the Frenchman in a guillotine. However, Imavov showcased his incredible skill and escaped the guillotine. He then pulled off a Brabo Choke to finish Cheurfa. The fact that it came from him having to escape a guillotine attempt and then pulling off a Brabo choke makes this win special.

1. Nassourdine Imavov vs Edmen Shahbazyan: And number one and Imavov’s best win, according to us, is his victory over Edmen Shahbazyan in 2021. The two faced off in the undercard of Usman vs Covington 2. And Imavov showed his class, again slipping a guillotine attempt from Shahbazyan to then taking control. Imavov then showed his versatility by landing an insane ground-and-pound. This left the referee no choice but to call the fight.

So there you have it. These are our top 5 Nassourdine Imavov wins. Which do you think was the best of the lot?
