The Line: Trevin Giles (-108) v Roman Dolidze (-108)
A true Pick’em fight! Outside looking in this would appear to be the second best fight on the entire card behind the main event. A case can be made for either fighter to win and that’s what makes this fight exhilarating!
Trevin Giles 13-2 is sharp on his feet and incredibly skilled at avoiding damage. Roman Dolidze 8-0 is a powerhouse that was fighting heavier opponents before hand and enters this bout with a size advantage. Giles has struggled against opponents with a size advantage in the past.
Both fighters striking is polished; averaging almost 4 strikes landed per minute a piece. Dolidze has a 2″ reach and height advantage. That will at times put Giles in an awkward position; as he enjoys fighting from a distance.
