Free Boxing Pick:
Ion is coming in as a hard striker as seen by his number of KO’s in the record book. However, what else will be interesting is the fact that Ion has ended up getting a few losses that have went against him and even throwing more strikes per minute he is not as accurate. Look for that to make the difference as Aankalaev is able to land more blows, but also land more where it matters and that leads to a win. UFC Fight Night Winner Prediction, Magomed Ankalaev.
