Main Card

Edmen Shahbazyan

Shahbazyan (12-3, 5-3 UFC) started brilliantly in his UFC career, winning four in a row that included three-straight first round finishes over Charles Byrd, Jack Marshman and Brad Tavares. The unbeaten streak, however, was snapped by Derek Brunson in August 2020. Shahbazyan would lose his next two fights against Jack Hermansson and Nassourdine Imavov before bouncing back with a two-round technical knockout win over Lungiambula in December 2022. The victory was so spectacular that the UFC handed Shahbazyan a Performance of the Night bonus. The fighter known as “The Golden Boy” has stopped 11 of his foes (10 knockouts and one submission) and he is likely to use his striking to the maximum in his match against Hernandez.

Anthony Hernandez

Hernandez (10-2, 1 NC; 4-2 UFC) went 1-2 in his first three UFC fights before bouncing back with three consecutive victories in the octagon. He registered wins over Rodolfo Vieira, Josh Fremd and Marc-Andre Barriault. Two of his wins were by submission, proving his excellence on the mat. Seven of Hernandez’s wins were by submission and the other stoppage win was by knockout. He looks to secure a victory against Shahbazyan to stretch his winning run to four and boost his status in the 185-pound division.

Shahbazyan vs Hernandez Betting Picks

Shahbazyan and Fernandez will look to secure an all-important victory to secure a chance of fighting the best fighters in the 185-pound class in the future. A win would likely place them in the middleweight rankings, which would make them several steps closer from fighting for the championship. Online sports betting sites are in favor of Hernandez due to his recent performances but do not sleep on Shahbazyan as he is capable of knocking out opponents with just one strike.
