MMA fighter Dzhaddal Alibekov saw an opening late in his fight against Mukhitdin Kholov and made the most of it at ACA 143.
Just a fight after a spinning wheel kick knockout, Alibekov and Kholov went to battle in a bantamweight matchup on the ACA 143 prelims. The two bantamweights entered the cage with a similar amount of fighting experience but were on two different trajectories following their recent performances.
It was a hard-fought battle through two rounds between Alibekov and Kholov before Alibelov picked up the pace in Round 3. After walking down his adversary, Alibekov landed a knee as Kholov attempted a takedown that dropped Kholov and followed it up with ground-and-pound strikes for the win.

Kholov has now lost three in a row after winning eight of his first 9 professional fights.
ACA 143 was headlined by a unanimous decision victory by Magomedrasul Gasanov over Artem Frlov for the middleweight title.
