Tsarukyan vs Silva: Who Will Win?

Oh, boy. This bout is way too one-sided.

How Tsarukyan Wins

The Armenian wins by making sure his Uber arrives to the facility on time. That's it.

Tsarukyan is a top-10 lightweight, who, for years now, has been deprived of matchups that reflect his talent. Yes, he fought Mateusz Gamrot a year ago — that fight was great — but we haven't seen him tested since. The 26-year-old was slated to fight Renato Moicano, but that fight got nixed when the Brazilian injured himself. So now Tsarukyan fights Silva, a brawler with a 5-3 UFC record.

Silva is capable of vicious KOs but Tsarukyan outclasses him in cardio and fight IQ. Arman will evade whatever the Brazilian blitzes with, and from there, we've just got to decide if Tsarukyan wins by stoppage or decision.

How Silva wins

Nope. Not entertaining this.

The 34-year-old is a fun action man, but he's nowhere close to the mixed martial artist Tsarukyan is. Don't bother wagering on Silva, even at insanely long odds. 

Tsarukyan vs Silva Pick

Because of the chalk, I'll modify my bet to Tsarukyan via first-round stoppage.

Pick: Tsarukyan to win In Round 1 (+115); UNDER 1.5 rounds (-150)
