UROS MEDIC VS MYKTYBEK OROLBAI LOWDOWN
Uros Medic (9-1) got stopped in his tracks after his perfect debut knockout against Aalon Cruz (2021). He then got fed to Jalin Turner to get submitted in the second round, but he has put that loss behind him and strung two vintage knockouts together over Omar Morales (2022) and Matt Semelsberger (2023).
He was scheduled to fight slugger Jonny Parsons who had to pull out giving Myktybek Orolbai (11-1-1) the opportunity to make his debut. The Kyrgyzstan native is currently riding a six-fight win streak and coming off two brilliant knockouts under the LFA banner putting away Glaucio Eliziario and Hayward Charles this year.
UROS MEDIC VS MYKTYBEK OROLBAI PREDICTION
This is a very dangerous fight for Medic taking on a name few have heard of on short notice. He is expected to win, but Orolbai is dangerous everywhere. He is particularly dangerous on the feet with good kicks and a missile of a right hand.
He will be confident of causing fight-ending damage on the feet, but Medic will hope he hunts the knockout. Expect some feisty exchanges, but as long as Medic respects the power of Orolbai, he will be able to get a read and begin to counter land the cleaner shots.
We are backing Medic’s technique and experience along with a full training camp to get the job done here, but Orolbai is a dangerous fighter and capable of causing the upset.
Prediction: Medic via Decision
Value bet: Orolbai to win
