Evloev has a fascinating MMA record of 15 wins and 0 losses. The fighter started his UFC career back in 2019 and has remained undefeated ever since. He is the former M-1 bantamweight champion. Evloev’s last fight was against Hakeem Dawodu at UFC 263. The Russian fighter won through a unanimous decision.

On the other hand, Ilia Topuri has a great MMA record of 11 wins and 0 losses. Like Evloev, Topuri too is undefeated. Topuri started his UFC career in 2020. His last fight was against Ryan Hall and he won through a KO. However, Topuria never got the opportunity to fight for the title. Perhaps defeating Evloev would help people see his potential and boost the likelihood of him getting the opportunity soon.

What is interesting about this fight is that both the fighters are undefeated. This fight will witness one of the fighter’s first defeats. 

Topuria has incredible grappling skills, but so does Evloev. Both the fighters are highly skilled, have incredible power, and are dangerously motivated to keep their fight records clean off any loss. Their previous fights serve as proof that the upcoming bout will be absolutely exciting.
