UFC Fight Night 202: Misha Cirkunov vs. Wellington Turman Betting Information
The 34-year-old Misha Cirkunov once captured the UFC by storm as he won his first four fights back in 2015-16. Since then, everything has been shaky for the fighter from Riga, Latvia as he lost five of his last seven matches. He was able to get a few victories against Patrick Cummins and Jimmy Crute but was also able to absorb defeat in the likes of Volkan Oezdimir, Glover Texiera and Johnny Walker. Entering this match, he is coming off two consecutive losses against Ryan Spann and Krzysztof Jotko. Cirkunov has been naturally looking for the submission victory in his matches but he can also pack a knockout blow.
Wellington Turman has been trying to stay afloat in the UFC and has been battling to prove he belongs to the world’s premier MMA organization. He has been given 5 fights since earning a UFC contract but has only won twice. Among the fighters who had his number were Karl Roberson, Andrew Sanches and Bruno Silva. Meanwhile, his wins were against Markus Perez and the more recent was a split decision win over Sam Alvey. Turman has not finished any fight in the UFC on his own and all his victories came from the judges’ scorecards. Look for him to do the same against the very resilient Misha Cirkunov.
