The name Adlan Amagov doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, but for those mixed martial arts (MMA) fans who never heard of the Russian destroyer, take a look at this video to see what Robbie Lawler is up against when they collide this Saturday night (Jan. 7, 2012) on the Strikeforce: "Rockhold vs. Jardine" fight card in Las Vegas, Nevada.
That's what Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker was talking about when he told MMA Fighting not to underestimate Amagov simply because he's not a recognizable name.
"The Robbie Lawler fight, against Adlan, that's gonna be a barnburner and I think people underestimate Adlan because they really don't know him. He's been fighting on Challengers, but that's kinda how Luke (Rockhold) got brought up, he came from the Challengers series."
Hear more from Coker on this weekend's Showtime event, after the jump.
