ANDREAS MICHAILIDIS VS KB BHULLAR LOWDOWN

We have not seen Andreas Michailidis (12-4) for nearly a year since his UFC debut and it was a miserable outing for the Greek. He took on fellow debutant Modestas Bukauskas and after eating some thunderous elbows at the end of the first round, he was unable to continue. That was his second loss in his last nine fights where he has fought for a variety of promotions. His loss prior to his debut was in 2017 getting knocked out by Vladimir Mineev but he went on to rack up three brilliant knockouts in a row and he would love another at the APEX this weekend.

KB Bhullar (8-1) is also coming off a knockout loss on his UFC debut which was the first loss of his career. He was unbeaten with four knockouts and two submissions in the bank but the difference in competition was clear as he got pieced up and then dropped by a seasoned Tom Breese jab. He now has a great opportunity to prove his worth against another striker desperate for a dub.

ANDREAS MICHAILIDIS VS KB BHULLAR PREDICTION

Bhullar has a four-inch height and two-inch reach advantage and needs to use it well and control the range as Michailidis has devastating power and if he can get Bhullar on his back, his ground-and-pound will be deadly.

If the fight stays on the feet, it will be very interesting. Bhullar should have the speed advantage and be able to see Michailidis’ spinning attacks coming but the Greek’s power should make all the difference. They have both been knocked out now, but we are backing Michailidis to land on Bhullar’s chin and walk away with the eighth knockout of his career.
