CHRISTIAN LEROY DUNCAN VS DENIS TIULIULIN LOWDOWN
Christian Leroy Duncan (8-1) was preparing for Cesar Almeida who had to pull out. Fortunately, he is still on the card as he gets a chance to make up for the first loss of his career. The exciting middleweight arrived to the UFC off the back of two spectacular knockouts for Cage Warriors and made it three in a row on his UFC debut although it was due to Dusko Todorovic (2023) injuring his knee. He then met Armen Petrosyan back in July and was outclassed in a unanimous decision.
Denis Tiuliulin (10-8-1) steps up on short notice hoping to improve his suffering 1-3 UFC record. He got submitted on debut by Aliaskhab Khizriev (2022) and responded with a vintage TKO over Jamie Pickett (2022). However, he is now coming off two more losses getting submitted by Jun Yong Park (2023) and knocked out by Gregory Rodrigues in August.
CHRISTIAN LEROY DUNCAN VS DENIS TIULIULIN PREDICTION
This is a very exciting match-up between two aggressive strikers. Duncan will bring the flare as usual with an array of strikes and spinning attacks. Tiuliulin is not as technical as Petrosyan, but he should learn from his performance by keeping it simple.
Tiuliulin is a quality striker and will make this competitive, but if Duncan is more cerebral and times his flashy onslaughts, he will put it on the Russian with his power and dynamism. We also expect Duncan to throw in a takedown knowing it is a clear weakness in Tiuliulin’s game.
Duncan has the striking and grappling to get this done as long as he fights smarter. Tiuliulin is worth a small punt considering the odds, but a Duncan knockout is most likely.
Prediction: Duncan via KO/TKO
Value bet: Tiuliulin to win
