    SIR

    Pretty intriguing matchup. Emeev has looked great the past few years, and during his first two UFC performances. Silva's story is really fascinating. Only blemish on his record was a DQ loss in his promotional debut over 11 years ago. 3 - 0 in UFC, but had a 3 1/2 year hiatus due to a litany of injuries. He returned to submit Nordine Taleb in Liverpool in the spring.

    IMO, this is a good match-up that will get no pub.

    Interesting fight.

    Claudio Silva has managed to basically grab victory from the jaws of defeat in all 3 of his UFC performances, with his decision win over top contender Leon Edwards being very controversial. Taleb was literally clowning him on the feet before Silva finally got him to the ground, and Taleb sealed his own fate by going for a leglock. Brad Scott was similarly dominating him, yet inexplicably kept giving up needless takedowns.

    Emeev fights very similarly to his Gorets teammate Magomedov. He's a master of distance and timing, and is also extremely good at clinch work. His fight with Mina actually saw some pretty unorthodox groundwork, and is an underrated fight. (However, Emeev largely dominated the standup exchanges.) Emeev also has huge wins outside the UFC against Vasilevsky, Tokov, and Duraev (who just defeated Vasilevsky for the ACB MW title.)

    imo Emeev should be pretty heavily favoured, but Silva has the ability to finish anyone on the ground. Definitely two of the most underrated WW's on the roster.

    I like this fight. Two strong grapplers, used to dominating the ground game. I'll take Ramazan, UD.

    Nice, very nice.

    Emeev was a very good MW, clearly top 20.
    A win over Claudio will elevate him in top 20 of WW this time,

    Emeev should win this. I don't think Silva has very good striking, and Emeev is basically 2018's version of Rashid Magomedov.

    According to Russian sources UFC signed Serbian Stefan Sekulic as a replacement for injured Silva.
