We have a scrap in the Bantamweight division, as the “Mongolian Murderer” Aoriqileng takes on Cameron “Camchida” Else. Still yet to taste UFC victory in two fights, Aoriqileng will hope that the third time’s the charm. Prior to joining the UFC, Aoriqileng had won six straight, four of which came via stoppage. Meanwhile, Else too comes into this fight seeking his first UFC victory. Having not fought since debuting back in October of 2020, Else will need to shake off the rust quickly in what is likely to be a fight that won’t go to the judges scorecards.
As for a prediction, I have Aoriqileng winning. While Else may have a grappling edge and a surprising victory over Paddy Pimblett early in his career, the rest of his abilities and resume aren’t exactly great. In fact, Else’s ten victories have come over fighters with a combined record of 18-17. The last regional scene victory for Else before debuting in the UFC was over a 3-14 opponent. Having been stopped in four of his five losses, Else doesn’t exactly exude durability. Something in which is a strength of Aoriqileng’s. As long as the Mongolian Murderer can keep this fight upright or pop back up when taken down, it will only be a matter of time before his volume and power swarm Else. So with that said, I predict that Aoriqileng wins via TKO.
