The Quiet Ascension Of Roman Kopylov

(Watch On UFC Fight Pass)

Each time Kopylov steps into the Octagon, we get to see a different part of his striking arsenal. In the matchup with power puncher Punahele Soriano, Kopylov focused on his bodywork to slow down Soriano.

In the second round, it paid dividends as a body kick nearly dropped Soriano and Kopylov followed up as the Hawaiian retreated to the fence. Kopylov poured on some strikes for good measure as Soriano dropped into a seated position and the referee called the fight. A super impressive win for Kopylov to get a tough guy like Soriano out of there.
