Jared Gooden

Jared Gooden is just at his prime age as an athlete at 27 years old.

His professional fighting record is now at 17-5 and those victories are divided into seven knockouts, six submissions, and four decisions. His debut fight in the UFC was his most recent match.

Abubaker Nurmagomedov

Abubakar Nurmagomedov is now 31 years old and his hometown is located at Makhachkala, Dagestan in Russia. This welterweight has been training at the Fightspirit team for most of his MMA career.
