How will the fight play out?

While Robert Whittaker is undoubtedly the more dynamic fighter in this bout and the clear favorite to win, it’s premature to count Aliskerov out. Whittaker, a former champion, boasts an impressive 14-3 record over the past decade at the top tier of the division. He’s coming off a notable victory over Paulo Costa, which showcased his power and precision, making him a formidable opponent.
On the other side, Aliskerov is a tough, gritty fighter from Dagestan, a combat sambo world champion who trained under Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, the father of former UFC lightweight champion Khabib. Despite Whittaker’s edge, Aliskerov’s resilience and background make him a competitor to watch.
If I were to make a prediction, I’d lean towards Whittaker. Although Aliskerov is a skilled fighter, I find it hard to envision him overcoming Whittaker’s experience and prowess in this fight.

My Pick: Robert Whittaker to win the fight in the third round. The best odds at the time of writing are at -161 with BetOBet.
