Minty Bets is joined by Kevin Iole to preview the upcoming UFC Fight Night main event from the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, June 25th between Arman Tsarukyan and Mateusz Gamrot.
MINTY BETS: This Saturday, we've got UFC Fight Night taking place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada. The main event will be a lightweight bout between Arman Tsarukyan minus 275 versus Mateusz Gamrot plus 210. I'm Minty Bets, and joining me is Kevin Iole to give us his best bet for the fight. Kevin, what's your best bet?
KEVIN IOLE: Well, I'll tell you what, I really like Tsarukyan in this fight. A very well-matched fight. Gamrot is a high-level wrestler. He's a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt. But I just go back to one fight, and it's actually a fight that he lost that Tsarukyan had, and that was against Islam Makhachev. And that was an amazing fight, back and forth.
And we know what great wrestling Makhachev has. And he didn't have any decided advantage in wrestling against Tsarukyan, and that tells me something. When you can wrestle on even terms with Makhachev you can wrestle on even terms with anybody in the UFC.
And so I think Tsarukyan is going to control this, and I like Tsarukyan, so I'll lay the 275. I also, Minty, think this one is going to go the distance. Both guys are good defensive fighters. I see this going the five-round distance, so I will bet five full rounds.
MINTY BETS: Thank you so much, Kevin. Good luck.
KEVIN IOLE: Thanks, Minty.
