Loik Radzhabov vs Esteban Ribovics Prediction

Making a name for himself on the PFL circuit, Loik looks to cement his adequate legacy with a run inside the Ultimate Fighting Championship. He skipped the latest season of The Ultimate Fighter in favor of debuting on the biggest pay-per-view card in recent memory.

On the other end of the fray, Esteban Ribovics is fresh off the heels of a blistering sub-two-minute finish on the Contender Series, aiming to parlay the recent success into a budding UFC career on this Saturday's high-profile event. 

If you have ever seen these two ever put on the fisticuffs, you would know that they both are as visceral as they are sloppy. Loik was able to get far into the PFL playoffs and even touch the championship finals. Still, his lack of "finesse" and late-round cardio led to his failure to capture the 1 million dollar grand prize on more than one occasion.

Esteban has an over 80 percent finish rate. Still, he rarely sees a second round due to absolutely running through the subpar competition he has been encountering inside Argentina with little to no opposition. The relatively still green nature of Ribovics, combined with the tough but chaotically frenetic style of Radzhabov, leads me to believe that this fight is going to be an explosive banger, but a banger that goes the distance. 

Look to play the over 1.5 and watch the undefeated scrappy nature of Esteban Ribovics carry the scheduled festivities against Loik Radzhabov for the full 15 scheduled minutes.
