If Makhachev can’t simply hold him down a back and on scramble event is a chance. Furthermore on the feet Tsarukyan should have the ability to match or exceed the output of the competitor.

Gadzhimurad Antigulov Breakdown
Antigulov is a dangerous veteran who’s from favour with all the bookies following his final loss. If the fight remains standing he does seem to have a restricted gastank however is at home on the mat. The veteran has won 19 of 20 fights by finish and brings a very aggressive wrestling match, where he shoots often and chains strings until he gets a result. On the ground Antigulov is always searching for a finish and with his broad arsenal of entry methods, frequently finds you.
In contrast Oleksiejczuk is coming off an impressive first round stoppage and looks to have built some hype out of it. He is young and probably undersized for the division, but as a striker his speed has proven lethal. Against lower resistance Oleksiejczuk has had some noteworthy successes but he is yet to be tested by a grappler since early in his career, when he was dominated.
Look for Antigulov to come out strong and secure early takedowns where he will work to dangerous places. A submission victory within the first 1.5 rounds is a strong possibility. Furthermore if Oleksiejczuk is subjected on the mat he could be held for three rounds. This is a battle which could go either way as Oleksiejczuk has an advantage standing and in the later rounds of this fight with his or her cardio. Together with the present odds we enjoy a worth play on the face of the veteran.
