Tsarukyan enters on a five-match win streak and has an overall 18-2 record. His most recent loss came back in April of 2019 when he lost to Islam Makhachev by unanimous decision in his UFC debut. He has responded well to the loss and is coming off back-to-back victories by knockout. Most recently, he defeated Joel Alvarez in the second round in February of this year.

Gamrot will be fighting in his fifth match in the UFC. He has a 20-1 record with 12 finishes before a decision. Like his opponent, Gamrot also lost in his UFC debut, but his was by split decision. Guram Kutateladze was victorious that night, but Gamrot has rebounded with three straight victories. All of them have been by decision with two knockouts and a submission. In his last bout, he knocked out Diego Ferreira in the second round in December 2021.
