Dylan Salvador Betting Preview

Salvador is currently riding a two-fight win streak as he enters this battle. His most recent victory was a second round shoulder choke submission against Jahongir Jumaev back in October of last year.

He has five wins on his resume that consist of one knockout and four submissions. He only has one victory that has resulted in a first round finish and he has one loss by decision.

He has plenty of experience in Muay Thai and kickboxing, which he transitioned over to MMA not long ago. He is a two-weight world WAKO Champion and even has a victory over current UFC star Giga Chikadze.

Salvador is not necessarily a grappler by nature, as his resume points to striking. This will be interesting to see him on a big MMa stage and what he could possibly accomplish.

Bolaji Oki Betting Preview

Oki has won seven fights in a row after stumbling in his career opener. His most recent victory was a first round TKO against Jocimar Ferreira back in March earlier this year.

Looking at his seven wins, they consist of four knockouts, one submission, and two decisions. Three of his seven wins have resulted in a first round finish and his only loss has come by decision.

“The Zulu Warrior” is considered the best fighter to come out of Belgium. He has not yet battled a lot of quality fighters, so this will be an interesting test for him.

His only real contention was a victory against Nair Melikyan, who was supposed to be competing in the DWCS. Oki still remains a serious threat with his striking abilities no matter who he fights.
