Collin Anglin (8-1) vs Melsik Baghdasaryan (5-1)

Featherweight (145)

Collin Anglin

Between the two DWCS prospects, Anglin represents the more well-rounded yet thoroughly average fighter. So far, Anglin has shown a solid chin, but it hasn’t really faced the nuclear power of Baghdasaryan. As seen against Muhammadjon Naimov last time out, Anglin will probably eat a shot in order to lock up Baghdasaryan against the cage. Although Anglin isn’t the strongest grappler, it may be enough to drag Baghdasaryan into the later rounds and strike against a hopefully tiring opponent.

Melsik Baghdasaryan

A sharp, powerful kickboxer who is immediately a threat on the feet. Flying out the blocks, Baghdasaryan walks opponents down with front kicks before launching heavy boxing combinations. Better yet, Baghdasaryan tees off on opponents against the cage with massive elbows and knees. The form and output fall off a cliff by the later rounds, as seen against Dennis Buzukja. Against Buzukja, Baghdasaryan even attempted to panic wrestle in the third round, saved only by Buzukja haven taken too much damage during the first to take advantage.

Predicted Result: Baghdasaryan TKO Round 1

Between the two DWCS prospects, Anglin represents the more well-rounded yet thoroughly average fighter. So far, Anglin has shown a solid chin, but it hasn’t really faced the nuclear power of Baghdasaryan. Although Anglin isn’t the strongest grappler, it may be enough to drag Baghdasaryan into the later rounds. While Baghdasaryan relentless first-round pace and power may prove too much for Anglin, he realistically could fall off a cliff by the later rounds.
