Islam Makhachev vs. Arman Tsarukyan, UFC Fight Night 149
Lightweight contender Islam Makhachev returns to the Octagon when he takes on UFC newcomer Arman Tsarukyan in UFC Fight Night 149. Igor Lazorin broke the information. Makhachev (16-1) has gone 5-1 complete from the Octagon and is now riding a four-fight win streak that includes back-to-back stoppage wins over Gleison Tibau and Kajan Johnson. Tsarukyan (13-1) is only 22 and has finished 10 fights, such as a brutal head kick KO win over former UFC fighter Felipe Olivieri in his last outing. He’s won 12 straight fights including victories along with other former UFC fighters Junior Assuncao and Takenori Sato. Although Makhachev is a tremendous gift and will surely be a significant favourite here, I had been impressed appearing into Tsarukyan and give him a decent chance of making this fight aggressive.
Gadzhimurad Antigulov vs. Michal Oleksiejczuk , UFC Fight Night 149
Light heavyweights Gadzhimurad Antigulov and Michal Oleksiejczuk will meet at a struggle that is not likely to go three complete rounds. Antigulov (20-5) is 2-1 in the UFC but has been knocked out in barbarous fashion by Ion Cutelaba in his final outing. Oleksiejczuk (13-2, 1 NC) recently returned from a year-long USADA suspension to score a TKO win over Gian Villante. Both guys are treacherous fighters, however I anticipate Oleksiejczuk to be greatly favored here.
Magomed Mustafaev vs Rafael Fiziev, UFC Fight Night 149
Lightweights Magomed Mustafaev and Rafael Fiziev are set to fight at this event. Mustafaev (13-2) won his first two fights in the UFC but had been filed by Kevin Lee back in November 2016 and has not fought since. Fiziev (6-0) has finished all six of his expert bouts such as a head kick KO triumph in Titan FC his last time out. Although Russian fighters get respect from bettors, dependent on Mustafaev’s extended layoff and Fiziev’s undefeated record, I expect Fiziev to be a big favorite here.
Movsar Evloev vs. Seung Woo Choi, UFC Fight Night 149
Bantamweight prospects Movsar Evloev and Seung Woo Choi are also set to battle. Evloev (10-0) was a champion in M-1 and seems to be about the Petr Yan fast-track to the UFC’s top-15 rankings. Choi (7-1) has won five of his pro fights by knockout and is making his UFC debut. Both guys seem to be strong prospects but given Evloev’s undefeated record he’s going to be the favorite here.
Krzysztof Jotko vs. Alen Amedovski
Middleweights Krzysztof Jotko and Alen Amedovski are set to fight. Denis Geyko broke the news. Jotko (19-4) was at once an up-and-coming middleweight competition but has really fallen on hard times as of late with three consecutive losses, such as consecutive TKO defeats to Brad Tavares and Uriah Hall. Amedovski (8-0) is fighting from Macedonia and has won all eight of his pro fights by knockout with his last two wins coming from Bellator. Amedovski seems like quite a promising prospect and also given the deteriorating state of Jotko’s chin, I’d go with the newcomer here.
