Shamil Gamzatov vs Klidson Abreu

Undefeated Gamzatov has his UFC debut on Saturday afternoon. A Russian fighter, Gamzatov has built a 13-0 record. He’s got an edge over Abreu in the sense that he can win either in the standup or on the ground. Abreu does his best work on the mat. Gamzatov should control this one no matter if it ends up on the ground or not.

UFC Betting Pick: Shamil Gamzatov

Ramazan Emeev vs Anthony Rocco Martin

Emeev should be favored. Martin has a shot, though. Rocco lands 2.82 significant strikes per minute. He uses those strikes to get his opponent into precarious positions on the mat. 56% of Martin’s 16 wins have arrived via submission. Although Emeev will have the hometown crowd behind him, Rocco Martin can pull off the upset.

UFC Betting Pick: Anthony Rocco Martin

Khadis Ibragimov vs Ed Herman

  • UFC Fight Night 163 Odds: TBA

Gadzhimurad Antigulov was a -165 favorite to take down Ed Herman. Khadis Ibragimov will step in for Antigulov. How will Ibragimov fare? Although he’s a last-minute replacement, he should have no trouble getting to the 25-14-0 Herman. Ibragimov has a couple of physical advantages. Not only that, but his grappling skills are fantastic.

UFC Betting Pick: Khadi Ibragimov

Zelim Imadaev vs Danny Roberts

Imadaev is a big favorite over UK fighter Danny Roberts. The 16-4 Roberts does head into this bout after a loss. He lands a significant number of strikes per minute, though. If Roberts can keep his composure when standing up, he could pull off the upset. Back Roberts for the big score.

UFC Betting Pick: Danny Roberts

Alexander Volkov vs Greg Hardy

Junior Dos Santos was supposed to fight Volkov in the main event. Junior got hurt. Greg Hardy is a replacement fighter. Hardy has a nice 5-1 record. But, he’s 2-inches shorter than Volkov and gives up 3.5 inches in leg reach. Volkov is vastly more experienced. Hardy doesn’t seem to have any ground game. Alexander will use his experience to get to Hardy early.

UFC Betting Pick: Alexander Volkov

Zabit Magomedsharipov vs Calvin Kattar

17-1 Magomedsharipov has a well-rounded game. He can take a fight to the mat when he desires. Zabit averages 6.23 takedowns every 15 minutes. Although Kattar’s takedown defense is 80%, he hasn’t faced a fighter as skilled as Zabit. Magomedsharipov can also fight well off the mat. Kattar is in some trouble here.

UFC Betting Pick: Zabit Magomedsharipov
