Nurullo Aliev gets Robbed In Las Vegas Shortly after his debut UFC victory

In his promotional debut, Nurullo Aliev defeated Rafael Alves of Brazil by unanimous decision despite dropping a point in the first round. In spite of his success in Sin City, his subsequent adventures were forgettable at best.

Referee Mark Smith deducted a point in the first round after Alves complained that Aliev bit him and provided sufficient evidence for the newcomer from Tajikistan to be penalized. Despite being in a guillotine choke for the majority of the second round, he came out swinging and finished the round on top, landing some solid shots on Alves. The young fighter was confronted with a guillotine choke attempt and Alves in mount in the third round, but he eventually worked his way to top position, landing shots and controlling the Brazilian until the final bell.

Nurullo Aliev robbed in Las Vegas

While staying in a Las Vegas hotel over the weekend, some belongings were stolen from UFC lightweight Nurullo Aliev and his team. The robbery of Aliev and his team was first reported on AgFight. The Las Vegas police have opened a robbery investigation and are currently gathering evidence.

Money, documents, and electronics belonging to Aliev’s team were stolen from them in a parking lot, according to AgFight. After UFC Vegas 70, Aliev and his crew returned to their vehicle to find the windows smashed.

Allegedly, Aliev requested access to security footage from the Palace Station hotel, which could have helped identify the perpetrators, but was denied. Later, off-site, authorities found a vehicle believed to have been used by the crooks, but it didn’t contain any of Aliev’s stuff.

Aliev just had his biggest MMA win to date at UFC Vegas 70, so this announcement couldn’t have come at a better time. He remained undefeated in the cage with a majority decision victory over Rafael Alves.
