JACK SHORE VS LIUDVIK SHOLINIAN LOWDOWN

Jack Shore (14-0) walks out for his fourth UFC fight still protecting his unbeaten record. He cleaned up the Cage Warriors scene winning the bantamweight title with a TKO over Mike Ekundayo and defending it against Scott Malone with a submission before getting the call-up. He submitted Nohelin Hernandez and Aaron Phillips to kickstart his UFC account and is coming off a hard-fought split decision over Hunter Azure back in April. His only problem has been his inactivity fighting once a year since his debut.

Said Nurmagomedov and Zviad Lazishvili pulled out of a fight with Shore so, up steps Liudvik Sholinian (9-1-1) fresh on The Ultimate Fighter. He lost to the eventual winner Ricky Turcios in the semi’s after causing a huge upset and earning a unanimous decision over the tournament favourite and first pick – Mitch Raposo. Prior to the tournament he was riding a four-fight win streak for a variety of promotions and has a golden opportunity to earn a few more UFC fights.

JACK SHORE VS LIUDVIK SHOLINIAN PREDICTION

Sholinian’s performance against Raposo was very impressive. He is a very tough wrestler, but Shore’s bread and butter is his grappling. The Welshman has good cardio and is relentless with takedown attempts and is extremely dangerous on the mat aggressively hunting submissions.

Their grappling could cancel each other out for the first round, but this is a tough debut for Sholiniian and it will only be a matter of time before the tide turns. The longer the fight does stay on the feet, the more you have to back Shore. He is not known for his striking, but he will have the edge over the Ukrainian and be able to land a lot of shots.

Sholinian will make this a gritty fight and his durability should take this to the bell, but his strengths are likely to be cancelled out by Shore.
