If you are a fan of KO/TKOs, you were treated to one hell of a fight night last weekend. We witnessed 8 of them on the 13-fight card and boy were some of them vicious! While it ended with a doctor’s stoppage, Joaquin Buckley’s victory over Albert Duraev was our favorite of the night. Daukus let us down and Kattar did the same. Unfortunately, I believe the Daukus brothers have reached their ceilings at the UFC, but maybe a weight class change could bring them some change of fortunes.
This Saturday, we have a good number of fighters with extensive knockout ability. Chris Curtis, Josh Parisian, and Shayilan Nuerdanbieke have combined for 43 wins via KO in their careers. As for wrestling fans, Umar Nurmagomedov will provide a master class and Arman Tsarukyan will provide an exciting main event. So let’s take a dive into this exciting fight night.

Shavkat maintains a perfect 15-0 record to this point. He has finished every fight with 8 KOs and 7 Subs. He is facing his toughest foe in Neil Magny who is coming off back-to-back wins. Shavkat will likely be looking for a sub but we are not going to have to worry about how he gets it done with this parlay.
Arman Tsarukyan is one of our favorite fighters in the welterweight division. His opponent, Mateusz Gamrot, has just one blemish on his record. However, he has never faced anyone with the type of skill and motor that Tsarukyan has in his tank. Gamrot is skilled but he will be facing a different level of competition.

This is strictly a value play here for our dog of the night play. Shayilan has the ability and power to get the job done here in this matchup with TJ Brown. Shayilan has not fought since last November but that was a win after bouncing back from his debut loss to Josh Culibao. This one could turn into a flat-out slugfest and if so, We put the advantage solely in Shayilan’s corner in this on.

Chris Curtis is no joke on the feet. He can KO anyone in this division, but in this fight, Rodolfo will expose the lack of ability Curtis has on the mat. If Vieria can get him to the mat and neutralize his punching power, he will come out of this fight with his arm raised.
