Main Card

Marcin Tybura

Marcin Tybura is a six-foot-three fighter that hails from Uniejow, Poland, and stables out of the famous Jackson-Wink MMA. He is already 34-years old and he has a professional fighting record of 17 wins and six losses. He has been on a slump lately as he lost to back-to-back matches against Shamil Abdurakhimov and Augusto Sakai.

The victory was tasted during UFC Fight Night 134 held last July 2018. It was via unanimous decision was against Stefan Struve. If it was not for that win, he could have been on a five-game losing streak. Tybura is a creative fighter that can bring the fight from the stand-up and to the ground. In his 17 wins, he won seven times via TKO and six through submissions. 

Serghei Spivak

Sergei Spivak is a young 25-year-old fighter that came from Chisinau, Republic of Moldova. He is fighting out of MIR Production and UF Promotion. Currently, Spivak owns a professional MMA record of 10-1. This UFC fighter was on a nine-game winning streak. However, he tasted his first loss in his career in UFC Fight Night 151. This was during his MMA debut against Walt Harris where he was knocked down in the 50-second mark of the first round back in May 2019.

He then made it up by winning over Tai Tuivasa via Arm Triangle Choke in the second round in UFC 243 just this October 2019. Spivak is a man on the mission and he is out to prove that he belongs to the MMA’s biggest stage. Expect him trying to finish the match early as never in his career that he went full time. He is a good submission artist and he can go in many directions.

Tybura vs Spivak Betting Picks

Having more MMA bouts in the UFC, Tybura is a safe bet by Sports Gambling to give the young Spivak a lesson on what it is to fight in the UFC. It should be a close one since the youth and energy of Spivak can surprise Tybura as well since the aging fighter is having a hard time getting a victory lately.
