Shore vs Amirkhani Prediction

I fully expect a strong bounce-back performance from Jack Shore after Ricky Simon gave him his first career loss (via submission) at UFC Long Island. Before that, Shore started his professional MMA career with a flawless 16-0 record, proving that he has what it takes to get back on track.

Shore also has a vulnerable opponent in the form of Makwan Amirkhani. "Mr. Finland" has been terrible lately, dropping four of his last five contests. Even worse is that he's lost twice by knockout in his latest three fights.

With Shore having the striking advantage and the takedown defense (80%) to keep himself on his feet, back "Tank" in his United Kingdom homecoming.

Winner: Jack Shore

Shore vs Amirkhani Best Bet

I see Amirkhani getting knocked out this weekend. He's been knocked out twice in the second round in his last three fights. Though Shore "only" has four career knockout victories, his 3.96 significant strikes per minute with 58% accuracy show that he has a great shot at landing some stiff blows.

Amirkhani is as vulnerable as can be, so expect Shore to take advantage and finish his opponent.

Bet: Jack Shore by KO/TKO (+230)
