Arman Tsarukyan

Arman Tsarukyan entered the UFC with great potential. After losing his first fight in the organization against Islam Makhachev, the Russian fighter already forgot how to lose. Since then, he was able to earn wins over Olivier Aubin-Mercier, Davi Ramos, Matt Frevola and the most recent was with Christon Giagons in UFC Fight Night 192. Three of the wins he had in the UFC were decided by the judges while his latest match against Giagos ended in a first-round knockout. Tsarukyan is a swiss-army of moves inside the octagon and can finish his opponent in many ways.

Joel Alvarez

Joel Alvarez is on a similar path with Arman Tsarukyan as he also lost his debut fight and won his last four bouts. The difference is, Alvarez can finish his fights as his last four victories are divided into two knockouts and two submissions. Among the fighters he won against were Danilo Belluardo, Joseph Duffy, Alexander Yakovlev and Thiago Moises. Alvarez is more known as a submission expert but he has already shown that he can also finish his bouts as two of the three knockout wins he had in his career happened in the UFC. The 28-year-old fighter keeps on improving and some say he is destined to be at the top five in the welterweight division.
