Danilo Marques Betting Preview
Marques is looking to bounce back after a recent first round knockout defeat against Marcelo Nunes back in June earlier this year. This snapped his previous three-fight winning streak dating back to February of last year.
His fighting resume shows that he has 14 wins that consist of four knockouts, seven submissions, and three decisions. Eight of his 14 victories have resulted in a first round finish and four of his five losses have come by knockout.
He has moved around a few different fighting leagues over the years, most notably with the UFC (2-2), PFL (2-1), and the Legacy Fighting Alliance (0-1). A handful of these were against quality fighters, making a strong case to win for this battle.
Marques is currently ranked as the 81
best heavyweight fighter in the world. He also has a reach of 77.5 inches, which could help in this battle.
Satoshi Ishii Betting Preview
Ishii is aiming to extend his two-fight winning streak with another quality win here. His most recent victory was a first round TKO against Charlie Milner back in June of last year.

He has had some quality performances in various leagues over the years, but has not been as successful as he would have hoped. He has gone 1-2 in the PFL, 0-2 in Bellator, and even 1-2 in RIZIN Fighting Federation.
Ishii is currently ranked as the 142
best heavyweight fighter in the world. He also has a reach of 74 inches, which might affect him in this fight.
