Omari Akhmedov

The Russian fighter is currently the 13th in the UFC middleweight rankings. Since 2013 his record in this organization has 14 fights, nine of which he won, four lost and one fight ended in a draw. Omari has an excellent school of various martial arts and he gives preference to wrestling, which is a distinctive feature of Dagestani athletes.

In his last five meetings, 33-year-old Akhmedov won by decision three times, one meeting was lost, while his last victory in January this year against Tom Brice went to him as a result of a successful choke in the second round. He is good on the ground, but he does not hesitate to strike technique, as evidenced by his two knockouts.

Brad Tavares

The American began his performances in the UFC in 2010 and managed to enter the octagon against many of the grandees of this organization. He now rounded out the top 15 in his weight class, with 18 wins and seven losses on his roster. Brad is a versatile fighter and is equally good both in stance and in wrestling.

Over the previous three years, he had four fights, two of which he lost to Israel Adesanya and Edmen Shahbazyan. In January this year he beat Antonio Carlos Junior on points.

Prediction

It will be quite difficult for Tavares in this fight, since he has not yet faced wrestlers of a similar level, which is Akhmedov. In addition, a Russian fighter in a standing position can present a lot of surprises with his good arsenal of strikes.

Recent performances also speak in favor of Omari. He is progressing in contrast to his opponent, who is not in the best condition. Most likely, Akhmedov will try to carry out takedowns more often and decide the fate of the fight on the ground, where he feels much more confident.

We believe that Omari Akhmedov will win in the upcoming meeting. For such an outcome, 1xBet bookmaker offers a coefficient of 2.29.
