Yasubey Enomoto won the M-1 Global welterweight title from Shamil Zavurov tonight by scoring a guillotine choke in the fifth round of the M-1 Challenge 30 card. The fight was a decent back and forth battle for four rounds before both men came out exhausted in the final round.
With Zavurov looking to score a desperation takedown repeatedly in the final round, Enomoto was able to stuff a shot and turn it into the choke that won him the fight and title.
Zavurov needs to drop a weight class as he was dwarfed by Enomoto.
As for the new champion, it's hard to say too much about his future. He's wild on the feet but does attack well and is clearly good enough to dominate for a while in a promotion like M-1.
