Sabah Homasi Betting Preview

Homasi returns to action from his battle back in February of this year, which was a second-round TKO defeat against Brennan Ward. This snapped his previous two-fight winning streak dating back to January of last year.

Out of his remarkable 17 triumphs, he achieved victory in 11 by knockout, three via submission, and the remaining three by decision. In addition, eight of his 17 victories were sealed with first-round finishes and seven of his 11 defeats have come by decision.

“The Sleek Sheik” has bounced around various prominent fighting leagues over the years. He went 0-1 in Strikeforce, 0-3 in the UFC, and is currently 6-5 under Bellator, which does not really look good.

He is currently sporting an 87th ranked position for best welterweight in the world. He is needing a good win to get his career in shape.

Levan Chokheli Betting Preview

Chokheli has won his last two fights and is aiming to claim another one. His most recent win was a unanimous decision over Michael Lombardo back at Bellator 294 in April of this year.

He has compiled 12 wins so far that have been pretty straightforward, with nine knockouts and three decisions. Interestingly enough, all nine of his knockouts have been first round finishes and he has one loss each by submission and decision.

He has moved around different fighting organizations throughout the years. So far, he has gone 3-2 in Bellator against good competition.

He is currently sitting at the 99th spot for best welterweight fighter in the world. Since the two are closely matched on paper, this should be an exciting battle.

  • Sabah Homasi: +180

  • Levan Chokheli: -210

Homasi has not been the most consistent fighter in his professional career. He has had his chances over many years to improve his resume in the UFC and even at Bellator, but it does not appear that he has changed much.

Chokheli has had a tough start in Bellator, but has a great opportunity to get his feet set to face other good fighters. Look for him to end this potentially by knockout.
