Austin, USA, November 24, 2014.  Russian fighter Ruslan Magomedov earned another victory in the UFC Fight Night 57 show held Sunday at American Austin, Texas. He won American Josh Copeland on points in three rounds.

He had all the three rounds in a stance where Magomedov did much more skillful and more technique-savvy than his opponent who had mostly relied on a single blow. Moreover, Magomedov was good at using his legs. At the end of the fight, all the judges named Magomedov the winner (30-27, 30-27, 29-28).

"I am really happy about the victory. I wished I had more of a ground fight, but the fight had me bear a stance. I hope punch style fans enjoyed watching this bout. You can’t have easy fights in the UFC. I'm happy to have won, because I had a tough opponent. Now I’m ready to oppose anyone UFC offers me to fight with," Magomedov commented after the bout.

This is the second match the athlete has had in the UFC. In his debut fight in Berlin late May, Magomedov defeated Czech Victor Pestun by a unanimous referees’ decision. Generally, Magomedov has a track record of 14 fights, among them13 wins (4 knockouts).
