Renato Moicano said this to mmanews.com about the upcoming fight between Fiziev and Gamrot, “I have already fought him (Fiziev). Man, he's good. Maybe not the best, but probably one of the best strikers in the whole MMA scene, but, he does have a problem. Usually, he starts (at a) very high pace, throwing huge combos, very powerful. But as the fight goes, he starts to fade (in) the later rounds. That's going to be a five-round fight (against Gamrot). On the other hand, we have Mateusz Gamrot, a European ADCC champion, very good grappler, BJJ guy... and his cardio is amazing. As the fight goes, he keeps pushing the pace... Rafael Fiziev vs. Bobby Green, Fiziev was just blasting Bobby Green with punches and kicks. In the third round, guess what? He was dead, brother, he was gassed... As the fight goes, I think the advantage will start to go to Mateusz Gamrot."

Fiziev will be trying to bounce back from his loss to Gaethje. He is listed as a slight favorite against Gamrot. Fiziev is a striker who has a lot of energy, but as was noted in the quotes, this fight is scheduled for five rounds. Can Fiziev put away Gamrot within the first couple of rounds? Gamrot couldn’t handle Beneil Dariush but he bounced back to beat Jalin Turner. There is no question that Fiziev will want to keep this fight standing, while Gamrot would prefer to take this fight to the mat.
I think this fight is one in which we can play a couple of props. If Fiziev wins I think he wins by knockout and we get +175 on that prop. If Gamrot wins then I think the fight goes the distance and we get +275 on Gamrot to win by decision. We could also just play it safe and take the rounds to go over the total of 4.5 and lay the -130.
