It’s not Body Action System (BAS), but it’s pretty damn close!

MMA: UFC 205-Nurmagomedov vs Johnson Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

How did top Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov become one of the deadliest strikers in all of mixed martial arts (MMA)?

He started training on the BoxMaster, a new piece of gym equipment featuring spring-loaded pads that eliminates the need for trainers to hold mitts. In addition, it creates specific angles to return a “realistic flow” for each boxing workout.

Watch “The Eagle” in action:


What’s even more impressive is that his newfound boxing skills have been acquired from a secret group of hard-hitting soccer moms, who also found striking success on the BoxMaster, to terrifying results.


Just bleed box.

Nurmagomedov (24-0) will attempt to put these tools to the test against dynamic striker Edson Barboza as part of the UFC 219 pay-per-view (PPV) event next month in Las Vegas, Nevada, in what could be a lightweight title eliminator bout.
