Nobody can predict the results of Vendetta's fights better than sportsmen who at one time fought with both rivals of the pair, and even more so – professional sportsmen. ()
"Definitely, it will be difficult to Pushkar! In any case, Todd will impose his pulling style, the question is only in what round it will be! I hope, the Pushkar has gained and he’ll make 4 rounds in one touch! This, of course, is something unreal, but I hope that Pushkar became stronger!"- Denis Tsyplenkov responds about the duel.
Dave Chaffee believes that Pushkar needs to change his tactics: "I have pulled both.. I recently pulled Michael at the WAL finals in June and we both won 2 matches against each other. I pulled Pushkar in 2015 and he beat me 3-0 at A1 in Russia.. It's hard for me to compare as I wasn't in the best shape when I pulled Pushkar as I was when I last pulled Michael. But Pushkar has the power advantage and Michael definitely has the endurance advantage. I could not stop Pushkars hit in 2015. Mike has the technical advantage. He has that arm that won't bend and he knows exactly where to get in a spot which makes him very difficult to pin. He also will work to get your hand in a bad spot. He will work to get it flopped and you can't pin mike that way. I don't recall ever really seeing Pushkar have to make an adjustment to win a match. He will have to in this match if he wants to come out on top. Like most, I think he may be able to win a match or two with his power hit.
