Davy Gallon Betting Preview

Gallon has not won a fight since May of last year. His recent battle was a no contest against Saul Rogers in Bellator 296 and prior to that was a unanimous decision defeat to Daniele Scatizzi in October of last year.

In his professional journey, he has secured victory 21 times. Among these triumphs, six were achieved via knockout, seven via submission, and eight through decision. He currently has six first round finishes and he shares three defeats each by knockout and decision out of eight losses.

He has moved around various fighting organizations throughout the years. These include 2-1 in Pancrace Fighting Championship, 7-2-2 in 100% Fight, and 3-1 Bellator 

He is currently ranked as the 138th best lightweight fighter in the world. This is a big opportunity if she can manage the aggression.

Attila Korkmaz Betting Preview

Korkmaz has gone 3-3 in his six fights, where he would win one and then lose the next. His previous battle was a first round heel hook submission at UAE Warriors 42 in May earlier this year.

He has established 13 wins in his fighting resume, including two knockouts, three by submission, and eight decisions. He has thrown in two first round finishes and six of his seven defeats have been by decision.

“The Fearless” has not shown dominance in any league he joins. He has gone 1-2 in Absolute Championship Berkut, 1-1 in Absolute Championship Akhmat, and 0-1 in Bellator, displaying his inconsistencies.

He is considered to be the 23rd best lightweight (19th in featherweight) Eastern European fighter. This is an exciting opportunity if he can capitalize on it.

Gallon has a lot to like, especially since he is a veteran MMA fighter with quality experience everywhere he goes. This will be a close fight, but it should slightly edge in favor of Gallon by the time the judges have to score it.
