Although the result was highly controversial, the victory moved Ankalaev to 4-1 under the flag of UFC and his name did get noticed in the light heavyweight division.

Ankalaev is a strong Russian attacker who can deliver powerful punches and produce eight knockouts.

Ankalaev comes from wrestling and is quite the athlete who will mix up a lot of kicks and is not afraid to pick up the pace.

He has also shown that he has good above-average retirement defense thanks to five fights in the UFC. In addition Ankalaev has good cardio for a man of his size and has helped him win all six decisions of his career.

Ion Cutelaba +281

Ion Cutelaba holds a 15-5 record winning 80% of his fights by knockout. Cutelaba has split his last eight fights and is coming off a loss to Magomed Ankalaev in which he looked like he had faltered a bit.

Cutelaba is now 4-4 under the UFC banner and won't want to lose one more time. Cutelaba is experienced in wrestling and is also experienced in sambo and judo, but his best attack is on his feet. He has power and knockout potential, he has shown it in 12 of his 15 career victories have been by knockout.

Cutelaba only throws heavy punches and that's what he was trying to land in the first fight before being rewarded with an early save.

The problem with Cutelaba doesn't have much of a tank and has lost three of his last four fights that made it out of the first round.

 

PICK: Magomed Ankalaev to Win @ -341
