UFC Fight Night Paris Odds, Picks & Predictions: Alessio Di Chirico vs. Roman Kopylov

In this main card scrap, we have a middleweight bout between Alessio Di Chirico and Roman Kopylov. These two fighters desperately need a win after some disappointing performances recently.

Di Chirico has now lost four of his last five fights, capped off with a loss via head kick just 17 seconds into the bout against Abdul Razak Alhassan. Meanwhile, Kopylov is now 0-2 in the UFC since starting an 8-0 professional career under a few different promotions.

While we have yet to see it in the UFC, Kopylov’s power must be respected, with seven of his eight professional wins coming via KO/TKO. Kopylov also did score a knockdown against Duraev in his latest scrap.

This fight should stay on the feet, which instantly gives Kopylov the advantage as he is a more accurate striker with much more proven power. Even if Di Chirico tries to bring the fight to the mat, Kopylov’s 83% takedown defense should be enough to keep It standing.

Assuming the fight turns into a striking competition, there is too much power in Kopylov’s striking not to take a flyer on him to win via KO/TKO.

Bset Bet: Roman Kopylov to Win via KO/TKO/DQ (+390)
