KSW 63: Soldić vs. Kincl | MMA Betting Preview
Darko Stosic Vs Michal Andryszac
The main card kicks off with a pair of bruisers stepping into the octagon for a Heavyweight duel. Stosic, who is 15-4, took a stumble by losing 3 in a row, but he has clawed his way back nicely by winning each of his last 2 fights. For Andryszac, this fight is all about recovering his form, as he is on a run that has seen him lose 3 of his last 5. I don’t see this one making it all the way to the finish, as I have Stosic winning by KO.
Aleksandar Rakas Vs Tomasz Romanowski
This Welterweight bout looks to be a very good one, with both of these fighters looking to bounce back after taking a loss. Rakas comes into this one with a 16-8 record, and while he did lose last time out, that defeat came on the heels of a 4-fight winning streak. It was much the same story for Romanowski, who was on an 8-fight undefeated run before losing his last outing. A great matchup here, but I like Romanowski for the win.
Pawel Pawlak Vs Damian Janikowski
It is the Middleweights who are up next, with one of these fighters looking to maintain a very solid run of form. Pawlak is 18-4-1 overall and has gone 4-0-1 over his last 5 fights. A great record, but he does tend to go the distance to get the job done. Janikowski recently went through a rough patch, losing 3 of 4, but he has steadied the ship and won each of his last 2 fights. I think that run comes to an end here, as I like Pawlak for the win.
Antun Racic Vs Jakub Wiklacz
This is a fantastic Bantamweight matchup, as both of these fighters are ranked in the top 5 in the weight class in Poland. Racic is the #2 ranked fighter, sitting at 25-9-1 overall, and he will be looking to bounce back after a loss last time out. Wiclacz is moving up the rankings nicely and sits at #4, which is no surprise when you consider that he has won 7 of his last 8 fights. This one should go all the way, with Racic getting the decision.
Roberto Soldic Vs Patrick Kincl
The main event of the night is a Welterweight title bout that sees the champion move back to this weight class after some Middleweight bouts. This is the 2nd time that Soldic has held the belt and he comes into this fight looking to defend it after winning 5 in a row. Kincl is 24-9 and has earned this shot after going on a run that has seen him win 5 in a row, with 4 of those inside the distance. A good challenger, but I am om Soldic for the KO win.
