Splits: 85% of handle, 77% of bets on Nurmagomedov

Nurmagomedov is the popular play and for good reason. It really comes down to what type of fighting we see from Zaleski following a two-year layoff. Either side can take this but lean toward Zaleski by decision. This is bound to be a great technical matchup most likely to go the distance.
