Rafael Dos Anjos vs Rafael Fiziev Preview

Our main event this weekend will prove which one of these contenders will make a run for a title shot.

This is one of the better veteran vs contender fights of the year and it should be full of fireworks when these two men enter the Octagon on Saturday.

Former UFC champion Rafael Dos Anjos has never looked better as he looks to make it 3 wins in a row for his lightweight comeback which helps him enter that title picture.

Dos Anjos has fought the absolute best in the business in Kamaru Usman, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson and has beaten some top names on his incredible journey.

Dos Anjos is a good boxer, but his strength lies in taking his opponents to the mat while looking for submissions there.

This week he will have his hands full as he faces Kazakhstan’s next hope for a champion, Rafael Fiziev.

Fiziev is currently riding a five-fight win streak which has seen him take out some strong fellow top prospects.

He is an explosive Muay Thai striker with the technical abilities to go with his heart and willpower to brawl.

This one will be a great clash of styles spectacle and considering the division does not have a current champion, that makes this fight very important.

UFC Fight Night Best Bets

Our first best this week is a parlay involving 2 favourites: David Onama and Said Nurmagomedov.

David Onama is an explosive striker who meets a last-minute replacement, and we think he should make quick work of his opponent.

For our second leg, we're backing Said who has faced much better competition, has the youth advantage, and the much more diverse game so he should get us an easy tick.

Our next best bet comes on our Heavyweight main-card bout between Jared Vanderaa and Chase Sherman.

Chase Sherman was cut from the UFC and is only back because he filled in last minute. Jared Vanderaa is not the best fighter out there, but he can scrap and make this ugly enough to take out Sherman via knockout who has lost 7 of his last 8 UFC fights.

Our final best bet comes on this main event which is the most technical fight on the card.

This is a clear grappler vs striker matchup where we believe Fiziev has 10 minutes to knockout Dos Anjos or else the more experienced veteran will take over this fight.

Fiziev has shown that he can slow down as the fight enters round 3 whereas Dos Anjos knows how to pace himself in the main event.

At a near 3/1 price, we are backing Dos Anjos to defend well early and grind out the young contender into the championship rounds.
