Rustam Khabilov Talks About How Twitter Helped Him Get A Fight With Benson Henderson
Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.06.2014



In an interview with MMA Junkie, Rustam Khabilov (17-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) spoke about how using Twitter allowed him to get a fight against Benson Henderson (20-3 MMA, 8-2 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 42. He respectfully asked Henderson for the fight and Henderson accepted.

On his surprise at how it worked: "I tried Twitter for the first time. It worked this guy said yes!"

On others being surprised: "In Russia, people didn't believe (I got the fight) when I texted him. People didn't believe I am fighting a top-15 opponent."

On Henderson's abilities: "[Henderson's] striking is very good, and he's a good athlete, but my wrestling is not bad. We'll see if his striking is better or my wrestling is better."
