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 at UFC Fight Night 149. Igor Lazorin broke the information. Makhachev (16-1) has gone 5-1 overall in 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 already 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. Though Makhachev is a huge gift and will certainly be a significant favorite here, I was amazed looking into Tsarukyan and give him a decent prospect of making this fight competitive.
Gadzhimurad Antigulov vs. Michal Oleksiejczuk , UFC Fight Night 149
Light heavyweights Gadzhimurad Antigulov and Michal Oleksiejczuk will meet at a fight that is not likely to go three complete rounds. Antigulov (20-5) is 2-1 in the UFC but has been knocked out in brutal fashion by Ion Cutelaba in his last 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 dangerous fighters, however I expect Oleksiejczuk to be heavily favored here.
Magomed Mustafaev vs Rafael Fiziev, UFC Fight Night 149
Lightweights Magomed Mustafaev and Rafael Fiziev are set to battle at this function. Mustafaev (13-2) won his first two fights in the UFC but was 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 win in Titan FC his last time out. Although Russian fighters get respect from bettors, dependent on Mustafaev’s long layoff and Fiziev’s undefeated record, I expect Fiziev to be a large favorite here.
Movsar Evloev vs. Seung Woo Choi, UFC Fight Night 149
Bantamweight prospects Movsar Evloev and Seung Woo Choi will also be set to clash. Evloev (10-0) was a champion in M-1 and looks to be on the Petr Yan fast-track into the UFC’s top-15 ranks. 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 awarded Evloev’s undefeated record he is going to be the favorite here.
Krzysztof Jotko vs. Alen Amedovski
Middleweights Krzysztof Jotko and Alen Amedovski are place to fight. Denis Geyko broke the information. Jotko (19-4) was at one time an up-and-coming middleweight competition but has 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 out of Macedonia and has won all eight of his pro fights by knockout with his last two wins coming in Bellator. Amedovski looks like a very promising prospect and given the deteriorating state of Jotko’s chin, I would go with the newcomer here.
