Forecast for battle
An intriguing confrontation between the veteran is young, but gaining momentum heavyweight. Orlovsky is already over 40, he has only one win in his last six fights, but he in any case is not an easy opponent for his debut in the UFC. However, Linsa have the tools to continue on the winning path. He owns a black belt in BJJ and has thunderous power in his hands. His hooks and uppercuts on the right is not only powerful but also fast, in addition, it can operate commercially, that is not such a frequent phenomenon for havewala. Expect punchy Linsa in some point will lead to a 12th defeat of the Oryol knockout.
