UFC Fight Night 215: Fialho vs Salikhov 11/19/2022 Odds
Andre Fialho (16-5, 1 NC, 2-2 UFC) pulled off excellent knockout wins against Miguel Baeza and Cameron VanCamp, earning him “Performance of the Night” bonuses. He sought to make it three in a row but was knocked out by Jake Matthews in his last fight in June in Singapore. When in his element, Fialho is capable of unleashing accurate and powerful punches and he has proven this in his match against VanCamp. He was able to record an almost 71% striking percentage that forced the referee to halt the proceedings in his favor. However, he was neutralized in his match against Matthews, as he only connected 19 strikes on 52 attempts.
Muslim Salikhov (18-3, 5-2 UFC) had his five-fight winning run stopped by Chinese fighter Li Jingliang in July, succumbing to a two-round technical knockout defeat. The Dagestan native, who is also known as “King of Kung Fu” due to his wushu expertise, is an excellent striker capable of landing more than 60 strikes in one match. He has proven this in his fight against Francisco Trinaldo as he connected 71 strikes. Salikhov also bombarded Laureano Staropoli with 64 strikes en route to victory. He has to use this strength to beat Fialho and secure him more chances of fighting in the 170-pound category. Salikhov also has an excellent knockout rate, winning 12 of his matches by either knockout or technical knockout.

The bout is expected to be a slugfest as both fighters are capable of knocking out opponents. The first fighter who unleashes a telling blow in the fight will have a definite advantage, according to MMA betting sites that monitor UFC Fight Night cards 24/7.
