Rickson Thai Zenidim Betting Preview

Zenidim is returning to action after a second round TKO against Carlos Huachin at Fusion Fighting Championship in May of this year. This got him back on the winning track after previously suffering his first career defeat, which was a unanimous decision to Rodrigo Vera in February earlier this year.

His impressive combat record includes 14 victories, featuring two knockout wins, 10 submissions, and two decision victories. Remarkably, 10 of these 14 successes were secured within the very first round.

“The King” has established some quality wind throughout his career. Most notably, he has gone 5-0 in Paulao Fight against easier fighters but has managed to look good in those instances.

Zenidim is currently ranked third as the best flyweight fighter in all of Latin America. He also comes in at ninth here for bantamweight, so this should be interesting to see if that has any weight to it.

Andre Lima Betting Preview

Lima is undefeated through six professional bouts and aims to find success once more. His previous successful encounter was a second round TKO over Igor Taylor back at Legacy Fighting Alliance 162 in July of this year.

Looking at his six wins, five of them have come by knockout and one is by decision. Four of his knockout wins have ended in the first round of action, making him a threat in the opening round of any fight.

“Mascote” has solid experience as a kickboxer and blends it with MMA. He has earned wins against solid opposition and aims to find another successful encounter here. His best fight was his recent battle in the LFA.

Lima is currently ranked as the 146th best flyweight fighter in the world. This is the perfect opportunity to showcase his versatility and improve his resume.
