“I’m still active like crazy. Training 2 times a day since the ko. But needed to take the time to heal up and be smart so the career can be long as possible. Soon 40 years old, but is just a number if your smart ?”
Umarov has fought most of his career under ACB, this fight will be his 8th under the promotion. The fighter out of Chechnya is coming off a win in December.
Christensen is a veteran of the UFC, going 1 win and 3 losses in the Octagon before his last bout with ACB. He has not been shying away from staying active. “Two BJJ competitions to solve the ground game problem I had for some time.”
