UFC Moscow Staff Predictions

Jon Fuentes:

This is a very interesting matchup. Kattar should have a big edge in the standup department, but Magomedsharipov will have a big advantage himself, in the grappling. However, Kattar has proven to have sick knockout power, and I have a funny feeling he’s going to be able to connect on Magomedsharipov and hand him his first loss under the UFC banner. (Prediction: Calvin Kattar)

Abhinav Kini:

Calvin Kattar should not be slept on. He’s an excellent striker with knockout power. However, I feel he would have benefited more if this was a five-rounder. I see Zabit Magomedsharipov just about edging him on his way to a decision victory, especially in front of a Russian crowd. (Prediction: Zabit Magomedsharipov)
