Merab Dvalishvili -405
Merab Dvalishvili is heading into the fight here standing at 5’6” and 135 pounds. However, Dvalihvili is coming in with a good reach at 68 inches. That goes along great with the record that Dvalishvili has in his record at 10-4 on the year.
Merab is coming to the fight using what many of the fighters use in the orthodox fighting style. However, he does have a heavy handed blow and that would definitely explain why Merab is considered more of a striker. The last five fights have seen Merab pick up 3 straight unanimous decision wins after losing a KO/TKO fight and then losing a split decision loss.
Ray Borg is coming into the fight here with a height disadvantage as he is standing at 5’4” and 135 pounds. The big telling stat is the fact that Borg has only managed to get a 63 inch reach and that could definitely hurt his chances of winning the match here.
Borg is coming into the fight here using an orthodox style of fighting stance, but he is also going to be coming in as more of a grappler. He has not really been able to build up his reach an that could hurt him here. Ray Borg is coming into the fight after being disappointed in his last 5 fights. One was a split decision loss, one a unanimous decision loss, one was a submission loss in 2017 in a title fight. The 2 wins that Borg picked up were unanimous decision wins.
The fight here is one that Borg is going to struggle in as he does not have the reach advantage. Borg will also have to go through quite a fury of punches from Merab if he tries to get in close. Look for that to make an advantage for Dvalishvili that will be nearly impossible for Borg to overcome. UFC Fight Night Winner Prediction, Merab Dvalishvili.
