    Pretty good fight.

    Makhmud Muradov (24-6) vs. Karl Roberson (9-2)

    I picked Kopylov to beat Roberson, but I am more confident in Muradov winning this. He has really sharp boxing - much sharper than Roberson's.

    Very close fight on paper. Muradov was even with Di Chirico and Trevor Smith was completely outmatched.

    Very solid prelim, that. I'm edging towards Roberson, he's MUCH better than Di Chirico who fought Muradov all the way in a very close fight. Roberson has the BJJ edge in my eyes, and his kickboxing matches up well with Muradov - Roberson has fallen short when taking fights with solid grappler he should have steered clear of when so inexperienced.

    going with Muradov here - Kopylov looked great against Kopylov but besides that he's been fairly blah
