The upcoming matchup between Rafael Fiziev and Mateusz Gamrot at UFC Fight Night: Fiziev vs. Gamrot is one of the most highly anticipated fights in the lightweight division. Both fighters have a strong record in the Octagon, with each boasting impressive wins over some of the top contenders in their weight class. With both men possessing a high level of skill and talent, it’s hard to predict who will come out on top when they meet inside the cage on May 8th.
Rafael Fiziev enters this fight as the slight favorite coming into this bout, with odds of -111 attributed to his name. He has an impressive professional record going into this fight, currently standing at 9-1 with all nine victories by way knockout or submission. His last three wins have been particularly noteworthy; he took out Marc Diakiese via unanimous decision at UFC 229, followed that up with a first-round KO victory over Alex White at UFC 236 before finishing off fellow Russian Islam Makhachev via unanimous decision in November 2020 for his ninth straight win..
Fiziev’s opponent for this fight is Poland’s own Mateusz Gamrot (odds +116). Despite being relatively unknown outside of Europe until recently, he has quickly become one of Poland’s most recognizable figures within MMA due to his success inside the cage as well as his involvement in various political matters back home. Currently 16-0 as a professional fighter and undefeated since transitioning to MMA from KSW (the Polish equivalentof Bellator), there can be no doubt that he is very much deserving of his place here amongst some other established names such as Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje..
Although both fighters bring similar styles into this bout – favoring grappling exchanges to standup techniques – we can expect Fiziev to make use of his superior striking skills while utilizing angles and slick footwork to keep himself out of harm’s way during exchanges against “Gamer Boy”. This should give him an advantage over Gamrot who has shown weaknesses while defending takedown attempts against opponents such as Murad Machaev and Roman Szymanski respectively..
Based on these factors alone it appears likely that Rafael Fiziev (-111) will take victory by unanimous decision from Mateusz Gamrot (+116). However despite what our analysis may suggest it remains impossible to accurately predict any outcome prior actually seeing these two talented athletes battle inside The Octagon® so be sure not miss what promises to be an unmissable fight!
