One could compare Curtis Blaydes to the likes of Khabib Nurmagomedov. "Razor" likes to rely on his wrestling skills to dominate his opponents. However, his TKO win over former champion Junior Dos Santos is proof of his incredible power on the feet.

Be that as it may, Blaydes' game-plan mostly involves rag-dolling his opponents on the ground. In the 14 professional wins, he has secured 10 stoppage victories inside the Octagon.
