This weekend at SRC 12 Jorge Santiago and Mamed Khalidov face off for the second time. Back in November Khalidov stopped Santiago in a non-title affair. This time the belt will be on the line. It is time to check out the tape with ProMMANow.com.
Jorge Santiago vs. Mamed Khalidov
This fight will be an interesting clash of styles and abilities. As you can see from their first match up Santiago should have a pretty sizable edge in the grappling department. However, he is hindered by one specific attribute: his chin. Khalidov was able to stun Santiago from the bottom and finish the fight. It is hard to imagine that his power will not be the determining factor again. Can Santiago work his way into a submission without getting hit? Can Khalidov avoid the ground game just long enough to land one big shot? These are the questions that will be answered at SRC 12.
