    I'm rooting for Raoni, really enjoy his fights just needs to fight more often before he gets too old .

    I'm not super familiar with Lucky though, his last fights I watched I don't remember at all.

    Me too, but when I see a Dagestan fighter with a record like 17-2, it makes me worry lol

    Great Fight. I think Lucky edges out a decision.

    Timur Valiev is super high level, I made a thread a while ago on him. He beat up some super high level guys outside the UFC, and got really unlucky with his first fight in the UFC.

    That being said, Raoni is a beast.

    Should be a banger, honestly has FOTY potential.

    Timur is very good. This is a high risk, low reward fight for Barcelos, kind of like most of the fights he takes though

    Yeah feeling I got, even the ones that haven't gone through were like that too, he's clearly up for fighting anyone.

    I just hope they no one tries to stall the win in boring fashion.. Need to see the full range of MMA in this one.

    Fairly sure he's going to spam single leg, but we will see. Dagestan is producing literally almost cookie cutter fighters, man

    Next generation of Nurmagomedovs thankfully mix it up a lot more with the interesting striking, there are many similar traits with a lot of them though I agree.

    Meh. I like Islam though. But I don't want this cookie cutter fighters flooding MMA, but I think they will since it's so succesful.

    God, Dolidze is not Dagestani or anything, but more fighters like that, more fans UFC will lose

    Would be great to see a KO in this match up imo. Timur will try to lay on Barcelos
