Pros and Cons

Bahatebole Batebolati


  • N/A


  • Poor TDD
  • Throws single strikes
  • Low volume
  • Telegraphs striking
  • No head movement

Ki Won Bin 


  • Good right hand
  • Knockout power
  • Fast starter
  • Good ground and pound
  • Constant forward pressure
  • dangerous in exchanges


  • Weak chin
  • Gets drawn into brawls
  • Reckless

Prediction: Bin was on the inaugural season of Road to UFC and lost in the second round. Batebolati was unknown until last year, which saw him fighting twice for LFA. He’s coming off a win but it’s a fight I thought he clearly lost. So he should be on a two-fight skid.

Batebolati doesn’t show anything to write home about. He has a decent gas tank but that’s fine when you are barely throwing anything. Bin is better in every area and I would be surprised if he lost this fight.
