The UFC Apex in Las Vegas will be the site for a showdown between top-15 middleweights #8 Roman Dolidze and #11 Nassourdine Imavov. The fight will be held on Saturday, February 3 at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN+ as it headlines a six-fight main card. There are also seven fights scheduled for the preliminary card that will start at 4 p.m. on ESPN+
Dolidze (12-2) last fought against Marvin Vettori at UFC 286, losing by unanimous decision. The 35-year-old had won four straight prior to that loss, including KO wins over Kyle Daukus, Phil Hawes, and Jack Hermansson. A striker who likes to compliment his punches with solid takedowns, he’s ready to add another win to his record.
Imavov (12-4) lost to previous middleweight titleholder Sean Strickland by unanimous decision last January. That defeat was followed up with a No Contest via accidental head clash in a bout with Chris Curtis at UFC 289. The 28-year-old out of France is searching for a signature win that can propel him up the middleweight division rankings.
Imavov is a -175 betting favorite as Dolidze enters with +145 underdog odds, according to DraftKings Sportsbook. The favored method of victory in the main event is Imavov to win by KO (+215).
