What’s happened to Muradov?
The Uzbekistani fighter has only appeared in two fights under the UFC banner, winning by unanimous decision over Alessio Di Chircio on Sept. 28, 2019, and KO/TKO over Trevor Smith in his most decent fight Dec. 7, 2019, at UFC on ESPN 7. Muradov has had some tough luck lately.
Is Muradov a good value play at plus money?
Sanchez is a step up in competition for Muradov, but even so, MURADOV BY KO/TKO, DQ OR SUBMISSION (+165) is a good play at plus-money. As such, if you’re going to bet that, you have to look to UNDER 2.5 ROUNDS (+125) for a good value play, too.
What makes Muradov different against Meerschaert?
Muradov said one big difference for him against Meerschaert will be the benefit of a normal training camp instead of getting calls on short notice. But even if his three UFC fights so far haven’t featured full camps, they haven’t seemed to matter much.

Who is better, Muradov or Sanchez?
Sanchez has more experience in the UFC and is a superior wrestler, but that’s where the advantages stop.
