Kaik Brito Betting Preview

Brito is working on extending his two-fight win streak and obtaining a UFC contract in the process. His last successful encounter was a third round TKO against David Kozma back in December of last year.

He has a handful of experience with 16 wins on his fighting resume that are made up of 13 knockouts and three decisions. 10 of his 13 knockout victories have resulted in a first-round finish, but three of his four losses have come by decision.

He has moved around a bit over his career in notable fighting leagues against quality opponents through most of his encounters. These include 6-1 in NPF, 4-1 in Oktagon MMA, and 4-0 in Katana Fight.

Brito is currently ranked as the eighth-best professional welterweight fighter in Eastern Europe. While this is appealing, he has an opportunity to improve tremendously with a victory here.

Oban Elliot Betting Preview

Elliot is working on improving his four-fight win streak and he has about half the experience of Brito overall. His most recent success was a unanimous decision against James Sheehan back in April of this year.

He has put together eight wins on his fighting resume, which consist of two knockouts, three submissions, and three decisions. Four of his victories have resulted in a first-round finish and both of his losses have come by knockout.

“The Welsh Gangster” has primarily spent most of his time with the Cage Warriors Fighting Championship group. He has established a 7-2 resume against solid competition.

Prior to that, he went 7-0 in amateur matches and quite a bit of those were with Cage Warriors as well. In addition, he ranks as the 17th-best United Kingdom professional welterweight.

The following moneyline from MyBookie is showing that Kaik Brito is a slight favorite to win the co-main battle. Both fighters appear to stack up well, making this an appealing showdown.

  • Oban Elliot: +133

  • Kaik Brito: -169

  • *odds are subject to changes

Elliot has quality experience in his time with Cage Warriors. However, he has yet to be “challenged” by the strength of his schedule and has defeated fighters that are either newer or have slightly more wins than losses. Brito is aiming to improve his worldwide rank too, as he is the 148th-best welterweight.

Final Pick: Take Kaik Brito to Win at -169
