Randy Brown vs Muslim Salikhov Betting Prediction
The Odds are way off in this fight. These are two fighters that have similar styles and I am not sold that Randy Brown is that much of a bigger fighter. Salikhov is a good striker and he’s going to find success against Brown with that here. It might not be the cleanest fight, but it’s going to go the distance here, and I am going to side with the underdog here. Back Salikhov to get the job done on the money line.
