Rumored match up, this is what was just said on Anik’s IG live
Merab is just your run of the mill wrestleboxer with cardio
Barcelos by whatever he wants
Potential FOTY candidate, see barcelos taking it though
seems too soon for Barcellos. He just fought and making weight isn't easy for the guy. I would have prefered this even just a few weeks later on the end of the year card. I'll root for him, but he's got an up hill battle here if this is true.
merab finna snap!!
I hadn't looked at the date, I always forget to look at the dates for announced fights, I should really start paying more attention.
Hermansson vs Holland
Barcelos vs Merab
Evloev vs Landwher
OSP vs Jamahal
Pretty nice for a modern day Fight Night. Hopefully it all stays in tact.
Now that's a good fucking fight.
Sweet didn't know Jamahal had been booked against OSP, that's a nice matchup.
Also completely agree!
I still favor Raoni here, but facing a wrestling/cardio machine less than a month after your last fight is definitely risky. Skill for skill, though, raoni should win imo.
I think Barcelos is a more talented fighter but I wouldn't be shocked to see Merab win a hard fought decision. That dude's grit and cardio are on another level compared to almost everyone in MMA.
I hope you're right, I do like Merab but yeah can only imagine he'll spam takedowns and get caught in a choke, similar to what happened with Ricky Simon.. But less controversial.
Less than a month to prepare for a huge step up......doesn't seem fair for Barcelos with the deck stacked against him like that. Gotta support Raoni in this one.
There is hardly a UFC fight nowadays were it’s possible to pronounce the names of the fighters.
Man, that's a brutal fight
Dang, Barcelos not wasting any time moving up that ladder. I like it.
He's 33, his time is now. His look alike Aldo, the legend, is 34.
I think Mirab takes it. He is going to spam takedowns and tire Barcelos out, who was exhausted against his last opponent.
Separate names with a comma.
