Alves vs Aliev Prediction

Rafael Alves' UFC run has not gone as planned. He's lost two of his three fights since being on Dana White's Contender Series 2020, most recently suffering a third-round knockout loss to Drew Dober at UFC 277.

Things won't get any easier for Alves as he faces Nurullo Aliev, who's coming off a TKO win over Josh Wick on Dana White's Contender Series 2022. Aliev has also picked up six of his eight career wins by decision, showcasing that he has the endurance advantage over Alves, who has looked gassed at times during his UFC fights.

Aliev also has the youth advantage due to his being nine years younger than Alves. While this should still be a competitive fight at times, Aliev will outlast Alves and walk out with the victory.

Winner: Nurullo Aliev

Alves vs Aliev Best Bet

Unfortunately, the moneyline is the only betting option at the moment, making a Aliev outright win at -178 odds the best bet for now. Make sure to check back on FanDuel Sportsbook leading up to UFC Vegas 70 for more playable options.
