The Bull has a record of 18 wins (9 of them by knock-out and the rest by decision) and seven losses. Without a doubt, these are impressive numbers; however, it has been a year and four months since he has officially stepped into an octagon due to several injuries. In fact, he is coming off a hamstring tear, and that could impact his performance.

That time, he defeated Ignacio Bahamondes by split decision, a clash that had Bahamondes as the protagonist of the actions at times, although it was not enough to overcome the Canadian. Makdessi’s other four fights had the following outcome:

  • Lost to Francisco Trinaldo by Unanimous Decision
  • Won against Jesús Pinero by Unanimous Decision
  • Won by Unanimous Decision over Ross Pearson
  • Won by Unanimous Decision over Abel Trujillo

The Canadian fighter has a punch efficiency of 51%, with 1184 significant gores connected, and 2306 attempted. Meanwhile, detailing the “come and go”, in his career he has 5.57 significant hits connected per minute on average, while he received 4.02.

Makdessi vs Haqparast UFC Fight Night Predictions & Betting Odds

The major bookmakers are tipping the scales in Haqparast’s favor, despite the fact that the numbers are with the Canadian-born and that the Afghan’s last two performances were defeats.

The reasons probably have to do with the 10-year gap between Makdessi and him, but mainly due to the fact that he is more active.

However, we believe that Makdessi’s experience may weigh heavily in a fight that, ultimately, neither man comes into on the crest of a wave.

Prediction: John Makdessi wins.
