Aleksandr Chizov Betting Preview

Chizov just had his seven-fight winning streak snapped and is aiming to land another win in the PFL. His most recent bout was a unanimous decision defeat against Acoidan Duque back at PFL Europe 2 in July of this year.

With 10 wins on his resume, he has established six knockouts, three submissions, and a decision. Seven of his 10 triumphs have been first round finishes and he has one defeat each by a knockout and decision.

“Pretty Boy” had gone 3-0 in the FREON Promotions before taking a shot at the PFL. His most recent defeat was his toughest battle of his career, but he has a good shot here.

The last five battles he has been a part of have given him the confidence to attack this fight. The level of quality fighters leading up to this point should have given him enough positive momentum coming into this fight.

John Mitchell Betting Preview

Mitchell has won his last three battles and is aiming to get his fourth. His previous success was a unanimous decision over Geisym Derouiche in the PFL Europe 2 event.

So far out of seven wins, he has three knockouts, one submission, and three decisions. Two of his seven winning battles have been first round finishes and his only defeat has been by submission.

This will be his second appearance in the PFL, which fans are excited at his progression. He previously had success in a variety of fighting leagues, notably going 2-1 in UAE Warriors and 2-0 in Cage Warriors.

He has battled against solid opponents for a majority of his battles. This one, however, will likely be one of the tougher matchups he has had in a while.
