Khizriev vs. Gonzales Prediction on November 17, 2023

Match info

The undefeated Russian fighter Timur Khizriev will “share“ his ring space at Wintrust Arena in Chicago, Illinois, USA, with the American fighter Justin Gonzalez in one of the main card bouts of the men’s Bellator MMA 301 tournament. The bout will take place on Friday, November 17, at 7:40 p.m. local time.

Meeting statistics

The current form of Khizriev

Since making his professional mixed martial arts debut in 2014, Timur Khizriev hasn’t lost a single match. He fought in Russian leagues prior to joining Bellator, and in his final match back home, he decisively defeated Ruslan Ryskul in the opening round. Khizriev signed a deal with Bellator (the second strongest MMA promotion after UFC) in 2022, took part here twice, and prevailed on both occasions via unanimous decision.

The current form of Gonzales

Justin Gonzalez won the Contender Series (an MMA promotion owned by UFC president Dana White, where talented fighters are scouted) in 2019, but he wasn’t invited to the UFC for an unknown reason. Rather, he signed with Bellator after competing in one LFA (Houston-based MMA promotion) match and winning via knockout.

Here in Bellator, he has already experienced three wins and two losses, all of which resulted in rulings from the refs. He was defeated by Mads Burnell in his most recent bout, having a 16-5 record at the time.

Comparison of Khizriev and Gonzales

It should be clear before seeing the comparison of the numbers of the two fighters that Khizriev faced more dangerous rivals during his career than Gonzalez did. However, even in this instance, the Russian fighter has superior numbers.

Match analytics

Gonzalez’s fighting career was going great until he arrived at Bellator where the opposition isn’t particularly strong but it’s naturally still a little more serious than it was in his previous leagues. And even though he doesn’t rank among the best, the American is a persistent and spiritual fighter. Khizriev’s level is obviously higher than Gonzales’, so we’re confident that he’ll defeat him; we aren’t sure that it will be an easy victory though. The Russian, who’s by no means a finisher and would rather have a bird in his hand than two in the bush, will stick to his plan and work methodically to win on points.

Bookmakers excelling in betting bonuses haven’t yet released odds for markets other than moneyline wins for the bout in question but when they do, seek Khizriev to win on points on LSbet.com, which is our suggestion for betting.
