Predictions: Absolute MMA 1

Absolute MMA is set for their debut event tomorrow night. The main event will see hometown favourite Ramil Kamilov looking to remain undefeated when he meets Kris Allard. The rest of the Absolute MMA 1 card will feature primarily young fighters making their amateur debuts. Check out my predictions for the card below.

Ramil Kamilov (2-0) vs. Kris Allard (2-3): PRO Lightweight

It’s been over two years since Allard’s last fight, while Kamilov has competed four times in that span. Allard will always be a threat if he manages to get the fight to the ground, but if Kamilov can keep it standing and maybe mix in a few takedowns of his own he should take this.

Prediction: Kamilov wins via TKO.

Tomas Alamos (0-0) vs. Jake Craig (1-0): AMATEUR 215 pounds

Again, next to zero information available on Alamos. Craig is coming out of Shaved Bears MMA in Edmonton, training with Tanner Boser and Christian Larsen, so I will roll with him.

Prediction: Craig wins via knockout.

Ethan Cheung (0-0) vs. Morgan Bateman (1-0): AMATEUR Lightweight

While Bateman does have the first fight jitters out of the way, Cheung is training out of Champions Creed and will be more than prepared for his debut. It’s tough to go against Champions Creed.

Prediction: Cheung wins via TKO.

Imadudeen Atmeh (0-0) vs. Prince Kumar (0-0): AMATEUR Bantamweight

This is actually a really intriguing matchup as Atmeh is the younger brother of Albaraa and Izzudeen and will likely be a serious threat on the feet, while Kumar is a tough jiu-jitsu guy. If Atmeh can avoid the ground, he should roll here.

Prediction: Atmeh wins via knockout.

Josh Fox (1-0) vs. Cal Kostiniuk (0-0): AMATEUR Middleweight

Again, not very much is known about either guy. I believe Fox is another Champions Creed fighter, so I’ll roll with him over the unknowns of Kostiniuk.

Prediction: Fox wins via decision.

Adam Brezinova (0-0) vs. Dat Le (0-0): AMATEUR Lightweight

I can’t find any information at all on Brezinova, so I will side with Le who owns a martial arts gym.

Prediction: Le wins via TKO.

Yan Tun (0-0) vs. Chase Graham (0-0): AMATEUR Featherweight

Another Champions Creed fighter in Tun. I’ll roll with them all day with no information available on Graham.

Prediction: Tun wins via TKO.

Hamza Khan (0-0) vs. Jamie Ingram (0-1): AMATEUR Bantamweight

Ingram has the cage experience, as well as coming from a good gym in CMC. With no information on Khan, I will go with Ingram to pick up his first win.

Prediction: Ingram wins via decision.
