On the preliminary card, we’ll see a matchup between Alex White and Rafael Fiziev.</p><p>UFC veteran Alex ‘The Spartan’ White enters the UFC octagon this weekend for the tenth time, with nothing other than a victory at mind. The road has been rocky with 4 wins, 5 losses under contract with the UFC but, White will hold a huge experience advantage against his opponent. (6-1) Rafael Fiziev has and a class striking game, but this is MMA, a one-trick pony won’t be good enough.</p><p>White will head into Saturday's fight hoping for his first set of back to back wins since 2014, consistency has failed White in the past but; his previous win against Dan Moret could allow White to have confidence boost needed in the mental warfare. Fiziev comes in after a losing UFC debut whilst White is coming off a win. Momentum could be the key, for the veteran White to pull off an upset.</p><p> </p><p><strong><u>Rafael Fiziev </u></strong></p><p><strong>Age: </strong>26</p><p><strong>Record: </strong>6-1-0</p><p><strong>Height: </strong>5ft 8”</p><p><strong>Reach: </strong>70”</p><p><strong>Current Streak: </strong>1 loss</p><p><strong>Gym: </strong>Tiger Muay Thai</p><p><strong>Notable Gym Members:</strong> Petr Yan, Khalil Rountree &amp; Maribek Taisumov</p><p> </p><p><strong><u>Significant Strikes (UFC)</u> </strong></p><p><strong>Landed Per Min: </strong>0.70</p><p><strong>Accuracy: </strong>100%</p><p><strong>Defence: </strong>16%</p><p> </p><p><strong><u>Grappling (UFC)</u></strong></p><p><strong>Takedown Average: </strong>0</p><p><strong>Takedown Accuracy: </strong>0%</p><p><strong>Takedown Defended: </strong>0%</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;iframe width=\"560\" height=\"315\" src=\"https://www.youtube.com/embed/8CBxzoaygXg\" frameborder=\"0\" allow=\"accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture\" allowfullscreen&gt;&lt;/iframe&gt;"}[/]</p><p>Rafael Fiziev had an unfortunate UFC debut when matched up against Magomed Mustafaev. An absolute mauling from the Russian left Fiziev in the ever so popular ‘lost on debut’ category. I think the fight was more than octagon jitters; Magomed completely outclassed Fiziev and finished the fight within the first round.</p><p>The comeback for Fiziev should be an easier task than his debut, White is a UFC veteran but, has shown a lot of gaps in his downfalls to fighters such as; Jim Miller, James Krause and Tony Martin. That said, Fiziev has fought six times as a professional… does the experience of Alex White triumph the up and comer? Fiziev hasn’t fought the high-level UFC opposition, through his seven professional bouts; none of those has been won at this level.</p><p>Fiziev should out-class White if this fight stays standing for the entire 15 minutes. The clear path to victory and the way to earn that bounce-back victory should be a striking game-plan for Fiziev.</p><h2> </h2><h2><strong><u>At the end of the day </u></strong></h2><p>It’s hard to handicap Fiziev with favourite odds on his side when we haven’t seen him defeat anybody inside a UFC cage. His regional scene fights gave Fiziev an impressive highlight reel but the level of competition was low.</p><p>Alex White hasn’t been a trust-worthy bet in the past but, he has the size advantage to help control the distance, wherever he may want to take the fight shouldn’t be a problem. I already think Fiziev is too small for the Lightweight division, and he’ll suffer the height/reach disadvantage in the majority of his contests in this weight class. I believe White can be superior in the clinch/grappling and make this a scrappy one, a territory that Fiziev isn’t so familiar with.</p><p>The striking advantage should favour Fiziev, and I should think he’d want to keep the fight standing. White will mix-up his attacking offence and should be the better-rounded martial artist.</p><p> </p><p align="center"><strong><u>Some statistics below you may find interesting</u></strong></p><p style="text-align:center">- Fiziev has 6/7 fights ended in round 1</p><p style="text-align:center">- White has the advantage in all grappling statistics</p><p style="text-align:center">- White is 3-5 in his last eight fights</p><p align="center"><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=168&amp;a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&amp;f=3"><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5d582dcf927b95968483da5f/original-10-bet-new-customer-welcome-bonus" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2 align="center"><strong>Enrique Barzola vs Movsar Evloev </strong></h2><p align="center"><strong>Featherweight Bout </strong></p><p align="center"><strong>UFC Betting Prediction: <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/fighting/int/ultimate-fighting-championship/movsar-evloev-vs-enrique-barzola-3958545/?mtid=126" target="_blank" title="Fighting Odds">Enrique Barzola to win @ 2.62 [+162] </a>with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Well Rated Bookmaker">Bet365</a></strong></p><p> </p><p><strong><u>Enrique Barzola</u></strong></p><p><strong>Age: </strong>30</p><p><strong>Record: </strong>16-4-1</p><p><strong>Height: </strong>5ft 7”</p><p><strong>Reach: </strong>70”</p><p><strong>Current Streak: </strong>1 win</p><p><strong>Gym: </strong>American Kickboxing Academy</p><p><strong>Notable Gym Members: </strong>Khabib, Daniel Cormier &amp; Cain Velasquez</p><p> </p><p><strong><u>Significant Strikes (UFC)</u> </strong></p><p><strong>Landed Per Min: </strong>3.77</p><p><strong>Accuracy: </strong>41%</p><p><strong>Defence: </strong>69%</p><p> </p><p><strong><u>Grappling (UFC)</u></strong></p><p><strong>Takedown Average: </strong>5.00</p><p><strong>Takedown Accuracy: </strong>47%</p><p><strong>Takedown Defended: </strong>80%</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;iframe width=\"560\" height=\"315\" src=\"https://www.youtube.com/embed/kREET4NWaX4\" frameborder=\"0\" allow=\"accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture\" allowfullscreen&gt;&lt;/iframe&gt;"}[/]</p><p>Enrique Barzola embodies the true ‘warrior spirit’ of a martial artist. The Peruvian UFC vet has been racking up his UFC win tally since 2015 and currently posts a 6-2 record with his only losses coming against Kyle Bochniak (In a very questionable decision loss) and Kelvin Aguilar. With all eight of his UFC contracted contests ending by decision, Barzola has obtained a huge amount of in-cage experience.</p><p>The former ‘Ultimate Fighter Latin’ contest winner won’t have any problems being tipped as the underdog in this one; he’s overcome situations that held more pressure much like his debut on UFC T.V in the finale of TUF (The Ultimate Fighter).</p><p>I believe avoiding the takedown offence from Movsar won’t be a problem. Throughout his entire UFC venture, Barzola has only been taken down one time. I’m not saying Movsar won’t get one takedown but, I doubt we’ll any sort of dominance in the wrestling department.</p><p> </p><p><strong><u>Movsar Evloev </u></strong></p><p><strong>Age: </strong>25</p><p><strong>Record: </strong>11-0</p><p><strong>Height: </strong>5ft 7”</p><p><strong>Reach: </strong>72”</p><p><strong>Current Streak: </strong>11 wins</p><p><strong>Gym: </strong>Tiger Muay Thai</p><p><strong>Notable Gym Members:</strong> Petr Yan, Khalil Rountree &amp; Maribek Taisumov</p><p> </p><p><strong><u>Significant Strikes</u> </strong></p><p><strong>Landed Per Min: </strong>3.33</p><p><strong>Accuracy: </strong>64%<strong> </strong></p><p><strong>Defence: </strong>55<strong>% </strong></p><p> </p><p><strong><u>Grappling</u></strong></p><p><strong>Takedown Average: </strong>5.00</p><p><strong>Takedown Accuracy: </strong>31%</p><p><strong>Takedown Defended: </strong>100%</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;iframe width=\"560\" height=\"315\" src=\"https://www.youtube.com/embed/5FDWzg86odo\" frameborder=\"0\" allow=\"accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture\" allowfullscreen&gt;&lt;/iframe&gt;"}[/]</p><h2><strong><u>At the end of the day </u></strong></h2><p>It’s hard to go against a Russian force who’s riding an 11-fight win streak. Movsar hasn’t given me a whole bunch of reason’s to fade him. The former undefeated M1-Champion made his transition into the UFC a successful one. With his UFC out the way, his undefeated record in-tact, Movsar’s confidence will remain unscathed when facing Barzola.</p><p>Movsar can certainly bring the grinding style but, Barzola matches up very well. Having only suffered one takedown through 8 fights in the UFC I think Barzola has a great chance at dictating where the fight goes. If Movsar can’t get the takedown, I can’t envision him winning all three rounds on the scorecards.</p><p>Do we think Movsar is the more proficient striker? Probably not, Barzola should have enough output to win at least two rounds. I do worry for the cardio of Barzola late in the fight but other than that, I think Barzola can excel in this style of fight.</p><p align="center"><strong><u>Some statistics below you may find interesting</u></strong></p><p style="text-align:center">- Barzola has never been finished</p><p style="text-align:center">- All 8 of Barzola’s UFC fights have ended by decision</p><p style="text-align:center">- Evloev is undefeated in 11 fights</p><p style="text-align:center"> </p><p align="center"><strong><u>Dogs and Their Odds: Extra Betting Predictions</u></strong></p><p align="center">- 0.5u on Maurice Greene to win @ 1.90 [+190] with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Well Rated Bookmaker">Bet365</a></p><p align="center">- 0.5u M.Greene vs Sergey Pavlovich – the fight goes the distance @ 3.00 [+200] <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Well Rated Bookmaker">Bet365</a></p><p align="center"> </p><p style="text-align:center"><em>UFC Fight Night 162 takes place on Saturday 26<sup>th</sup> October live from The Singapore Indoor Stadium </em></p><p align="center"><em>If you would like to check up on any underdogs or odds not mentioned in this article then click <a href="http://www.oddsmarket.com/fighting">HERE</a>.</em></p></div>
