Roman Dolidze Ready for Another Impressive Performance

Roman Dolidze is 12-2 overall, with his record in the UFC being 6-2. Both of his losses happened by decision. The first of those was against Trevin Giles in 2021 on his Middleweight debut. Before that, he was a Light Heavyweight fighter.

Dolidze’s second loss happened in his most recent fight. He lost to Marvin Vettori by unanimous decision in March 2023. Losing to the Italian fighter isn’t much of an embarrassment, especially because Dolidze managed to survive until the final bell despite getting hit 106 times.

No other fighter has hit him so many times. In fact, before the Vettori fight, the man who recorded the most significant strikes against Dolidze in the UFC was Jack Hermansson with 47.

In that fight, Dolidze showed that he’s a real warrior who never backs down. In the three fights before the Vettori bout, he showed that he’s incredibly fun to watch. He beat Jack Hermannson, Phil Hawes, and Kyle Daukaus by KO/TKO, earning the UFC Performance of the Night bonus each time.

Nassourdine Imavov Wants to Take His Game to the Next Level

Nassourdine Imavov is 12-4-1 with four wins in the UFC, along with two losses and one no-contest. The no contest in question happened in his most recent fight. He was winning the fight against Chris Curtis, but the two then clashed heads accidentally, which rendered his opponent unable to continue fighting.

Before that, he lost to Sean Strickland by unanimous decision in a five-round battle, which is the only other ranked opponent he’s fought so far. Now, he’s supposed to fight the No. 8 in the Middleweight Rankings; how will he cope?

Judging by the UFC on ESPN+ 93 odds, he stands a very good chance of winning. One of the main reasons for this is that he’s a great striker, which is the kind of fighter Dolidze doesn’t do great against. He lands 4.55 significant strikes per minute, which is only 0.01 lower than Marvin Vettori, who beat Dolidze last year.

Roman Dolidze vs. Nassourdine Imavov Prediction

Roman Dolidze is one of the toughest middleweights in the world, and we just can’t Nassourdine Imavov knocking him out. He can land more strikes than him, but it’s Dolidze who’s got more power. It’s going to be a close fight, but we think Dolidze will win in the end.

Pick: Roman Dolidze
