Javid Basharat excited to draw Victor Henry: ‘As far as I’m concerned, this is a top 15 fight’

ABU DHABI – Javid Basharat thinks Victor Henry is a top 15-caliber fight.

Rising contenders Basharat (14-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) and Henry (23-6 MMA, 2-1 UFC) square off in a bantamweight bout at UFC 294 on Saturday.

Basharat sees Henry as a worthy opponent, and thinks both their skillsets are better than a lot of the UFC’s ranked bantamweights. The undefeated 28-year-old is ready to test himself against the experienced Henry.

Basharat talked about that and more at Wednesday’s UFC 294 media day in Abu Dhabi.
