Ciaran Clarke Betting Preview

Clarke has compiled seven bouts on his resume without a defeat yet to start his career. His most recent win was a unanimous decision over Leonardo Sinis back at Bellator 291 in February of this year.

Looking into those seven wins, you will see one knockout, three submissions, and three decisions. He has landed one first round finish so far and is potentially going to land one here.

He has fought entirely with Bellator throughout his seven wins. In his last two battles, he was also heavy favorites to win and missed his target weight in both appearances.

He is currently ranked as the 116th best featherweight fighter in the world. While this battle likely will not improve his resume that much, he still needs to earn quality finishes against weaker opponents.

Przemyslaw Gorny Betting Preview

Gorny has won his last three battles and is aiming for a huge one here. His previous success was a first round TKO against Szymon Milion back in Solo Combat Federation 3 in October of last year.

Within these five wins on his resume, he has three knockouts, one submission, and one decision. Three of his five wins so far have resulted in first round finishes and two out of three losses have been by decision.

“The Polish Wolf” will be making his debut in Bellator after some quality wins among various leagues. However, this the toughest matchup he has faced, as every fighter has battled against has had a .500 record or just a few wins under their belt.

He is considered to be the 76th best bantamweight fighter out of Eastern Europe and 134th best featherweight. While this is a solid start, he needs a lot of work to possibly upset with a win here.

MyBookie unveils the odds for this exciting showdown, casting Ciaran Clarke as the clear frontrunner for victory. For avid bettors, including Clarke in a parlay could be a savvy move to enhance your odds, especially since he is considered to be a huge favorite.

  • Przemyslaw Gorny: +432

  • Ciaran Clarke: -909

Gorny has yet to prove himself against tough opponents. His resume has not been strong, especially after losing two straight battles against opponents who were making their debuts professionally.

Clarke is on a roll and this is another easy win for his third straight battle. He will need to impress early if he wants tougher fights.
