My Prediction For Marc Diakiese vs Rafael Fiziev

Diakesi looks much improved after a difficult three losses in a row before winning his last two. His stock has fallen considerably since impressing in his first three UFC fights and should come out looking to prove a point. Fiziev meanwhile is also looking to build on a win after losing in his first in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Diakesi has both the experience and physical advantage over his opponent and should be able to use every bit of it to pull out a win. I don’t see him stopping the Kazakh early but should win in all judge’s scorecards for a UD win.
