FARID BASHARAT has made a perfect start to life in the UFC – but he insists his best is yet to come.
Basharat got the ball rolling at UFC 285 last March with a decision win over fellow highly-touted debutant Da’Mon Blackshear.
He went one better a few months later at UFC Paris, where he submitted Kleydson Rodrigues in just under five minutes.
Afghan-born Brit Basharat’s solid displays have caught the eye of several fans, although he believes they’ll get a true look at his potential when he takes on Taylor Lapilus at UFC Vegas 84 early tomorrow morning.
He told SunSport: “They’ve seen my grappling abilities so far. In the last fight, they saw the grappling.
“But then again, in the Contenders Series, they saw some really good striking too.
“The thing with me, I’m always improving. I’m very well-rounded and I work with the best coaches and best training partners.
“So you’re just going to see me improve and get better and better.”
Get better Basharat has since he and brother Javid upped sticks from London to Las Vegas to train at Xtreme Couture, a decision neither of them took lightly.
