By
Updated: October 16, 2017

After a short one week break the UFC is back and will have an event EVERY WEEKEND besides Christmas weekend untill the end of the year. To start off this 10 week fight marathon we go to Poland where England´s Till faces off against Cowboy Cerrone. Also on the card Karolina Kowalkiewicz vs. Jodie-Esquibel, Jan Blachowicz vs. Devin Clark and Artem Lobov vs. Andre Fili making this not a bad fight night card. Let´s take a look at the main event.

Till vs. Cerrone

Both fighters have fought recenty. Cerrone lost a close decision to Lawler in July and Till beat Bojan Velickovic in Rotterdam in September. Till is still young at 24 and has a 15-0 record. Till has a good stand up game and has some nice elbows in the clinch. He generaly moves forward and pushes the pace rather than staying on the outside. As we have seen in the past to beat Cerrone you are going to have to really get in his face to have a chance. I think Till is a good prospect and he will have good support in the crowd that will fly over from London. I am not convinced that it will be enough against Cerrone and keep in mind this is a five round fight. I can see Cerrone getting takedowns, winning rounds and maybe getting a submission. With Till forced to come forward since you don´t want to fight Cerrone moving backwards it should open him up for a level change takedown from Cerrone, or a sweep out of the clinch. Im going with the striaght up Cerrone win
Pick

Cerrone 1.67 (-150)



Andre Fili vs Artem Lobov

Both of these fighters are coming off losses. Fili lost to Calvin Kattar and Labov to Cub Swanson. Some people might have gained some respect for Labov lasting five rounds vs Swanson but I don´t think it will help this time around. Fili is quicker and has a huge nine inch reach advantage. Fili fights long and will pick Labov apart while stying on the outside. Labov is going to need to go for the KO but I dont think he will ne able to get in range. I can see Lobov trying to stalk down Fili for all three rounds. I think Fili will do more than enough to get it done and weather a possible early storm from Labov trying to throw bombs.

Pick

Fili 1.63 (-158)
