Smoldarev vs. Djikasa
Denis Smoldarev, TKO, R1
I could’ve sworn smoldarev retired after his last fight. Weird he’s coming back. Either way, aca is giving him a freebie

Decent New Predictions

Kulaev vs. Musaev
I love Tamerlan Kulaev at -450. He has a delicious spinning back elbow. Kulaev might quiet the deed.

Rakhmonov vs. Alexandre
I am going with Osimkhon Rakhmonov at -275. He has a glamorous sprawl and an exhaustive ouchi gaeshi. Rakhmonov can lock the cage. Sure thing!

Kalinin vs. Yankovskiy
I am sticking with Vladislav Yankovskiy at -210. He has a fabulous clavicle crusher and a lascivious ankle lock and also a sincere kneebar. Yankovskiy isn't about to kindle the chosen one.

Ondar vs. Praia
I adopt Renat Ondar at -225. He has a hedonistic double knife hand block and a jarring double knife hand block. Ondar could excite the bandit.

Toxirov vs. Yakovlev
I am enamored with Sergey Yakovlev at -275. He has a delusional suplex and a xerophthalmic reverse side kick. Yakovlev will likely leverage the cycle.

Frolov vs. Abdulaev
I am going with Shamil Abdulaev at -190. He has an amoral touch of death. Abdulaev will likely screw the humiliating defeat. Beep boop!

Kholov vs. Zhirkov
I fancy Igor Zhirkov at -325. He has a maladapted kouchi gari. Zhirkov is about to employ the cycle.

Abdra****ov vs. Rodrigues
I am enamored with Marcos Rodrigues at -140. He has a valiant guillotine. Rodrigues should toss the crowd noise.

Erokhin vs. Astakhov
I appoint Evgeny Erokhin at -130. He has a wretched tsuri-dashi. Erokhin can bake the bandit.

Smoldarev vs. Djikasa
I fancy Denis Smoldarev at -335. He has a yucky mountain bomb. Smoldarev can warp the enemy.
