PHOENIX – Mukhamed Berkhamov extended his winning streak to 12 after over two years on the sidelines.
Berkhamov (15-1 MMA, 1-0 BMMA) returned to action for the first time since August 2019 when he submitted Jaleel Willis in the first round Saturday at Bellator 268 at Footprint Center in Phoenix.
Following his successful Bellator debut, the 27-year-old Russian wants to make up for lost time and ramp up his activity.
“Of course – yeah, I want to fight. I want to stay active,” Berkhamov said. “I’ve been out for two years and I want to be back as soon as possible. I want to be active as much as possible.”
You can watch Berkhamov’s entire post-fight interview in the video above.
