    Yeah for sure...Timur is just one of those cookie cutter Dagestan grapplers...Barcelos is kinda different...

    If I don’t know either fighter, I just bet on the guy with -iev -ov -ev last name

    Honestly, it works like 90% of the time

    Barcelos needs to finally fight someone ranked if he wins. If he was American and had rainbow hair he would get more attention

    Timur is a flashy striker. He doesn't fight like the typical dagestani wrestler. That's not saying that he can't fight with that style, though...

    Attention, yes, but Barcelos is fighting much higher level competition.

    O'Malley may be popular but he is fighting lower level guys since he is a lower level guy himself. It is what it is

    I’m a big fan of Raoni’s fight style so I hope he sticks around for a while. It’s a tough match but appropriate. Hope he can pull this off.

    It's an incredible matchup. Honestly no idea who wins. I expect a competitive fight, maybe a Split Decision.

    Timur robbed Max Coga in the PFL. Barcelos by anything he wants.

    I'm mostly on the Barcelos hypetrain. Barcelos by KO first or second round.

    Wouldn't be surprised to see Barcelos TKO him.
