We have an awesome Lightweight main event between #9 Islam Makhachev sitting as a massive -720 favorite vs the #14 Thiago Moises +500. For those of you that dont know, Makhachev is a Khabib prodigy. They grew up together in Dagestan and Khabib will be in his corner tonight.
It’s hard to bet against the dominate Makhachev. He’s so good in all facet of the game and i expect his coming out party in his first main event tonight. I see a 2nd round submission for Makhachev. He is the ultimate dark horse in this division and iI think Islam is a more polished striker, and in my opinion, you’re looking at a future world lightweight champion.
And now bout bout the return of Miesha Tate in the women’s bantamweight division? I might be more intrigued by Miesha’s return than seeing Makhachev. She looks to be in phenomenal shape and In my opinion, having her face the #12 ranked Marion Renau whom is on a 4 fight losing streak could be a huge confident booster.
We haven’t seen her since November 2016. Lots has changed but if she can string together a few wins here we might be seeing an epic rematch with Amanda Nunes within a year.
