Islam Makhachev

Islam Makhachev is ranked ninth in the UFC lightweight rankings. His record includes 19 wins (11 of which he won ahead of schedule) and one loss. He is fluent in wrestling, judo and combat sambo. After 11 wins without defeat in other promotions, the Russian fighter made his debut in the world's strongest league in 2015.

In the second fight Islam lost to Adriano Martinez and this defeat remains the only one in his career. This was followed by a series of seven victories. In the last fight, the 29-year-old Russian confidently defeated Drew Dober with a choke hold in the third round.

Thiago Moises

Thiago Moises is ranked 14th. The 26-year-old Brazilian's track record consists of 15 victories (9 of them are won ahead of schedule) and four defeats. He is fluent in jiu-jitsu, has a black belt in this style and also feels good on the ground, but also carries out a fight in a standing position.

In 2018 Moises was invited to the UFC after winning the qualifier. The starting three fights were not very successful. The Brazilian lost twice, including to Damir Ismagulov. However, after that Thiago had three successful fights in a row, where in the last of them he defeated Alexander Hernandez.

Prediction

Islam is superior to its rival in wrestling and is excellent at translating difficult situations. Moises also behaves well in the stalls, but he is completely inferior to the Russian in the horizontal plane, while the striking technique will help him keep the Russian in suspense only for the first time. Makhachev is much stronger than the Brazilian, who has not yet lost ahead of schedule, but has not faced opponents of the same level as the Russian fighter. Islam will try to wear down its opponent and wait for an error on his part to effectively end the fight.

We believe that the fight will not last until the final bell and the Russian will solve everything much faster. Our prediction is an early victory for Islam Makhachev. For such an outcome in bookmaker 1xBet they offer odds of 2.36.
