Arman Tsarukyan Breakdown
Tsarukyan is coming from on introduction but brings adequate experience given his youthful age. He has above average wrestling and grappling in addition to a strong striking arsenal. His kicks are particularly powerful and fast and he conveys this over all rounds with remarkable cardio. Makhachev is unquestionably the proven fighter and has dominant wrestling himself. Previously weak standing, he does seem to be focusing on improving his game here. This is a massive step up for Tsarukyan but he does exhibit skills which give him a chance. If Makhachev can’t merely hold down him a back and on scramble affair is a possibility. Furthermore on the feet Tsarukyan should be able to match or surpass the output of his competitor.
The chances are far too wide for what seems like a competitive fight. Tsarukyan did display decent takedown defense outside the UFC, albeit against regional competition. The outcome of both fighters could be reduced on the feet and take us toward a classic split decision scenario. Back the promising fighter on introduction here to cash us a massive underdog play.
Bet = Tsarukyan in 3.75 (+275) odds. Risk 3 Units to win 8.25 Units.
Gadzhimurad Antigulov Breakdown
Antigulov is a dangerous veteran who is out of favour with the bookies following his last loss. If the fight remains standing he does look to have a limited gastank however is at home on the mat. The veteran has won 19 of 20 fights by end and brings an extremely aggressive wrestling game, where he shoots frequently and chains strings until he gets a result. On the ground Antigulov is always hunting for a complete and with his wide arsenal of entry techniques, often finds you.
In contrast Oleksiejczuk is coming off an impressive first round stoppage and looks to have built some hype from it. He’s young and probably undersized for the division, but as a striker his speed has proven deadly. Against lower opposition Oleksiejczuk has had some impressive victories but he is yet to be analyzed by means of a grappler since early in his career, even when he had been dominated.
Start looking for Antigulov to come out strong and secure early takedowns where he’ll work to dangerous positions. A submission victory within the first 1.5 rounds is a solid chance. Furthermore if Oleksiejczuk is subjected to the mat he could be held down for 3 rounds. This is a battle which could go either way since Oleksiejczuk does have an advantage standing and at the subsequent rounds of the struggle with his cardio. With the current odds we enjoy a value play on the face of the veteran.
Bet = Antigulov at 2.90 (+190) odds. Risk 3 Units to win 5.70 Units.
