In the Welterweight division, we have a showdown between Danny ‘Hot Chocolate’ Roberts and Ramazan ‘Gorets’ Emeev. Due to COVID and injuries, it’s been nearly two years since Roberts last graced the octagon. Unfortunate missed time, as Roberts last fight saw him snap a two-fight skid with an impressive stoppage victory over Zelim Imadaev. Meanwhile, Emeev will look to push his win streak to three. Since signing with the promotion in 2017, the former M-1 Champion has gone an impressive 5-1. With another win, Emeev could be in line for a top fifteen matchup.
This is an intriguing fight, and one that may comfort Danny Roberts. Not necessarily in victory, but in avoiding being finished. Something that has plagued Roberts, as he has been stopped in all four of his UFC losses. The reason I point this out is because Ramazan Emeev has yet to stop anyone in the UFC. Being that of a wrestler, Emeev has resorted to grinding out his opponents over fifteen minutes. A formula that has obviously been successful given he’s 5-1 inside the octagon. Roberts though isn’t an easy task, as the striker has proven to be a finisher, winning five of his seven UFC victories via stoppage. However, Roberts will need to be better in the takedown defense department if wants to get off his offense.
As for a prediction, I have Emeev winning. I just think that against lesser wrestlers, Roberts has struggled to keep the fight upright. And while Emeev might not have the best takedown accuracy, his dedication to controlling his opponents against the cage while working for the takedown has led him to being successful. In fact, in Emeev’s last two fights, his takedown accuracy is 38%. However, he has a combined eight takedowns in those two fights. So with that said, I predict that Emeev will win via decision.
PICK: Ramazan Emeev (-300)
