    Both are super young and undefeated. And both are great grapplers. But if i have to pick i would say topuria simply because he's the much better athlete.

    Topuria finishes fights ....he's a savage .

    Evloev great athlete ....but no finish / killer instinct

    Topuria is future FW champ.

    Evloev should probably move down to BW.

    Topuria has good offensive firepower but I don't think he can dictate where the fight takes place as well as Evloev. I think Evloev overall has the more effective style to eek out wins......although not impressively. I see him being able to climb the ranks higher.

    I don't know who will go further, but if they both fought I'd pick Evloev to win-- that wrestling is too good and his striking is coming along.

    He fought lentz at 150lbs and didn't look undersized at all.

    He look buffed up in his last fight. I think he's committed to 145.

    Evloev seems like the more finesse fighter

    Topes is a damn wrecking ball tho

    i see both doing well

    I could honestly see them fighting for the belt in 2023, maaybe 2024 knowing how damn slow this division moves.

    From Aldo pullouts, to Conor winning & never defending, to Max pulling out of UFC 222 & 226, to Volk not defending in over a year, to contenders like Zombie(past mostly), Yair, & Zabit being completely inactive for years at a time.

    I would pick Evloev to win today, but I feel like Topuria has a higher ceiling. He reminds me of what Bektic was supposed to be.

    The best win between either of their records was Evloev over Dawodu, so right now I'd say Evloev looks better, but Topuria could show something we haven't seen. Whether it's Evloev or Topuria or Mitchell or who knows, maybe Emmett, maybe someone they haven't signed yet, I think I'd be fine with the outcome because a wrestler will be holding the belt.

    Evoloev has the more effective style, the way he held Dawodu down was impressive. Dawodu is strong as an ox.

    Evloev would win the matchup but Topuria will go farther because UFC will push his fan friendly style
