Arman Tsarukyan Breakdown
Tsarukyan is coming in on introduction but brings adequate experience given his young age. He’s above average grappling and wrestling as well as a strong striking arsenal. His kicks are particularly powerful and fast and he conveys this over all rounds together with remarkable cardio. Makhachev is unquestionably the more proven fighter and contains dominant wrestling himself. Formerly weak standing, he does look to be focusing on improving his game here. This is a huge step up for Tsarukyan but he does exhibit abilities that give him a opportunity. If Makhachev can’t merely hold down him a back and forth scramble event is a possibility. Furthermore on the toes Tsarukyan should be able to match or surpass the output of his opponent.
The odds are far too wide for what seems like a competitive struggle. Tsarukyan did display decent takedown defense beyond the UFC, albeit against regional competition. The outcome of both fighters may be reduced on the toes and take us toward a classic split decision situation. Back the promising fighter on debut here — to money us a huge underdog play.
Bet = Tsarukyan in 3.75 (+275) odds. Risk 3 Units to acquire 8.25 Units.
Gadzhimurad Antigulov Breakdown
Antigulov is a dangerous veteran who is out of favour with all the bookies following his final loss. If the fight remains standing he does look to have a limited gastank but is at home on the mat. The veteran has won 19 of 20 fights by finish and brings a very aggressive wrestling game, where he shoots frequently and chains sequences until he gets a result. On the floor Antigulov is constantly hunting for a finish and with his wide arsenal of submission techniques, often finds one.
Compared Oleksiejczuk is coming off an impressive first round stoppage and seems to have assembled 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’s yet to be analyzed by a grappler since early in his career, even when he was mastered.
Start looking for Antigulov to come out strong and secure early takedowns at which he will work to dangerous places. A submission success within the first 1.5 rounds is a strong chance. Additionally if Oleksiejczuk is subjected to the mat that he can be held down for 3 rounds. This is a battle which could go either way as Oleksiejczuk does have an edge standing and in the later rounds of this fight with his cardio. With the current odds we enjoy a worth play on the face of this veteran.
Bet = Antigulov in 2.90 (+190) odds. Risk 3 Units to win 5.70 Units.
