Main Event/Co-Main Event Predictions

Predictions: 9 of 14 Pending   |   Tied for 1st with 925 others

Stipe vs Bones is being targeted for this card (via ArielHelwani), I assume they would make it the main event.

"Bro stop, hes not coming back." 

I know :/ Im just reporting what I've heard rumored. This can easily be Jiri vs Glover II if that bout is not booked for UFC 283 Brazil.

Maybe a strawweight or flyweight title fight too, but it would need a strong title headliner. Cant make Esparza vs Zhang and have it be the coheadliner to Stipe vs Jones lol.

I expect a lot of fighters to want to jump on this card due to it being the end of the year before the UFC takes a small layoff for the holidays, so hopefully we get some great matchups!

Predictions: 13 of 14 Pending   |   Tied for 1st with 925 others

Teixeira v Prochazka II main and Esparza v Zhang co-main seems like the obvious choice. Would love to see Pavlovich v Volkov, Hill v Kowalkiewicz, and Tsarukyan v Ismaugulov or Gaethje v Fiziev added. Also, if Burns v Masvidal is actually in the works that would be a nice main card addition. I wouldn't mind if that fight wasn't made because I think Burns should be fighting other contenders, not Journeyman Cheapshot Jorge (who is calling out Leon Edwards if he loses).

As far as Miocic v Jones is concerned, I'll belive it when both men are in the Octagon together. Kinda think the UFC should do a Heavyweight Grand Prix w/ Miocic, Jones, Ngannou, Gane, and Blaydes (hard to do with odd numbers).

Ponzi is going to KO Robbie in the first, I hope Robbie takes a page out of Rory MacDonald’s book and calls it a career after this.

Possibly for this card to have Jones vs Miocic , Jiri vs Glover 2

I'm praying, this card would be ridiculous to end the year!

This is not a good matchup for Robbie. I hope he retires if he gets knocked out. One of my all-time favorite fighters!

I sure hope so...I'd go with Fiziev.

RIP Ruthless. Sad seeing so many legends of the sport get set up on the way out.

Shahbazyan vs. Lungiambula
Edmen Shahbazyan, TKO, R1
Set up fight. Shahbazyan should improve now that he's at Xtreme Couture.

These guys have some of the worst combined gas tanks in ufc middleweight history. I’m hoping Edmen gets on the right track here

Dalcha's durability is decent just gasses way too quick, still a hard fight for Edmen that; first round is going to be crazy...

I would rather see Jones fight Ngannou than Miocic, but I'll be happy to watch him fight anyone.
