MATEUSZ GAMROT VS GURAM KUTATELADZE LOWDOWN
Mateusz Gamrot (17-0 (1)) is a huge addition to the UFC. The Pole is undefeated and heads to Fight Island looking to make a statement in the stacked lightweight division. He is the first ever double simultaneous champion for KSW in Poland holding the featherweight and lightweight titles and he is coming off his fourth lightweight title defence in outpointing Marian Ziolkowski.
Gamrot originally filled in for Renato Moicano to take on Magomed Mustafaev but Mustafaev then pulled out giving another opportunity for a debut with Guram Kutateladze (11-2) stepping up and boarding the plane to Fight Island. The Georgian has amassed an impressive record fighting for a variety of promotions and is riding an eight-fight win streak, coming off a great comeback win and first round knockout over former UFC fighter Felipe Silva.
MATEUSZ GAMROT VS GURAM KUTATELADZE PREDICTION
There is so much hype around Gamrot and rightly so. He is will be the favourite but Kutateladze is certainly UFC calibre. There is less pressure on the Georgian, but he is tough and has a lot of power in both hands with a dangerous high kick so this is no gimmie fight for Gamrot.
That said, we are likely to see why Gamrot is undefeated. He is a machine on the mat and on the feet and while training at American Top Team, he is only getting better. As long as he takes Kutateladze seriously on the feet and is patient in his openings, he will dictate the fight and if he decides to take the fight to the ground, he will aggressively hunt knockout or submission.
Prediction: Gamrot via Submission
