matchups confirmed for WSOF
30, which takes place April 2 at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in
Las Vegas. The show’s prelims will stream live on Sherdog.com
beginning at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT, with the NBCSN-televised main
card to follow at 11 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
Nurmagomedov, the adopted brother of
UFC lightweight contender Khabib
Nurmagomedov, will enter the bout on a three-fight winning
streak, including two wins since joining the WSOF roster in 2015.
The Dagestan native last stepped into the cage in December, when he
earned a lopsided decision over Danny Davis
Jr. at WSOF 26.
Frincu has not lost in his last five bouts stretching back to 2013,
when he was competing in his native Australia. Now based out of
Arizona Combat Sports, “The Thunder from Down Under” also beat
Davis in his last outing, taking a split decision from the Las
Vegan last September.
