Meeting statistics

The current form of Cannonier

One of the many deserving individuals who helped the UFC become the world’s most powerful and well-liked MMA league is Jared Cannonier. He started his professional career in 2011 and has been a member of the UFC since 2015. He has faced off against nearly every top fighter in the middleweight and light heavyweight classes. The American was eventually granted the opportunity to compete for the title in 2022 based on his cumulative achievements, but he was defeated by Israel Adesanya, the reigning champion.

Following the loss to the New Zealander, Cannonier persevered and started to storm this height once more despite his advanced age. He eventually defeated two actual tops, Sean Strickland and Marvin Vettori.

The current form of Imavov

Although Nassourdine Imavov was born in Dagestan, he has lived in France since he was 10 years old, where he also started his martial arts career. For this reason, he naturally represents France. A straightforward boxer, he joined the UFC in 2020, has battled against some very respectable opponents on multiple occasions, and he’s deserving of his high ranking.

In his last fight, Imavov defeated Roman Dolidze by the referees’ majority decision.

Match analytics

Cannonier shocked everyone with his previous bout; nobody could’ve predicted that he’d so brutally crush Vettori, a man who stated numerous times that he was dreaming of being a champion. Whoever is waiting for aging to slow Cannonier down will wait for a bit more—the American is still that amazing. Yet, Imavov is also very good and is rapidly improving in all components from fight to fight. He’s more versatile than his rival, he’s definitely better at wrestling, and all the complaints about his cardio have kind of gone away on their own. We expect an even better version from him, even more pressure in the first half of the fight, and the ability to endure when in trouble.

We’re unlikely to see an early end to the fight, but judging by the blows and activity, we believe that Imavov will win. Total Completed Rounds Over (4.5) with odds of 1.73 at LEGZO Casino is what Bookmaker Expert predicts.
