Nevada fighter Jonathan Nunez (4-0) says he is bound to put on a show when he makes his debut on national television against Ozzy Dugulubgov (5-1) on the World Series of Fighting WSOF 09 fight card.
Nunez was on The Roman Show to talk about his upcoming fight and he said it is a dream come true as he has been waiting to join the promotion. He said that he has been at WSOF President Ray Sefo’s ear.
“I wanted to get the WSOF since the beginning because they are in Vegas,” he said.
In an interview recently, Dugulubgov said he hasn’t had a chance to look at any video from Nunez’s past fights. But the California fighter, who now lives in Las Vegas, said he should take the time to look at what he will face on Saturday.
“I don’t think I’ve shown the best of my abilities and what I am capable of,” he said. “I’ve never got into a grinder yet that’s where I work the best. That’s where my trailing comes in.”
Dugulubgov, who hails from the north Caucasus, trains with Renzo Gracie’s team in New York. After outpointing Chris Wade at World Series of Fighting 2, Dugulubgov scored an impressive submission victory over Andrew Osborne with a second-round Achilles lock at September’s World Series of Fighting 5 event and now owns a four-fighting winning streak.
Nunez trains at Las Vegas’ Syndicate MMA. He made his pro debut in 2012 and has gone unbeaten at 4-0 with three stoppages. The impressive prospect now makes his World Series of Fighting debut.
Nunez is a college wrestler and has fought overseas in Central America. He said that he is ready for whoever is in front of him inside the cage.
“Anyone they put in front of me I’ll fight,” he said.
Nunez shared his thoughts on his opponent.
“I know he is a heavy hitter and a southpaw and it is something I have dealt with, he added.
