Both fighters are going to put their winning streaks on the line. The question is, who comes away victorious and moves on?

Moeil is a bit of a wildcard in the matchup simply because he has moved around from one professional league to the next. Bettors and fans do not really know what he brings to the octagon since his opponents have been of various caliber.

Isaev, on the other hand, has been fighting in the PFL for a while and has only two organizations on his resume to look at. This brings a solid point that he shows consistency among his fights and the level of talent he faces.

Overall, this should be a great striking matchup, and it could very likely end in either direction. However, Isaev brings a solid resume of slower-paced fights that either end in knockouts or by decision.

Look for this to go at least to the second round. Isaev takes this one by TKO.
