UFC will be for the first time in Liverpool, England this weekend. Where the hometown hero Darren Till will face his biggest test so far in his career. Till will fight number one ranked UFC welterweight, Stephen Tompson. This card does include many exciting fighters like Arnold Allen, Jason Knight, Makwan Amirkhani, Carlo Pedersoli jr, Molly McCann and then more well-known names like Neil Magny, Daniel Kelly, Elias Theodorou and Nordine Taleb. We are excited!
Here are our winner picks. As always the shadowed fighter is the fighter that we predict to lose their fight.
Stephen Thompson vs Darren Till
Stephen Thompson is always more likely to win this fight everywhere. Everywhere we mean that everywhere in the world. But this fight is in Liverpool, Darren Till is from Liverpool so we think that is a big factor in this fight. The audience there will be as loud as the Irish fans were when Conor McGregor fought last time in Dublin in front of his home crowd. We say that Darren Till will knock out Stephen Thompson in the second round.
Prediction: Darren Till wins via 2nd round KO
Neil Magny vs Craig White
Craig White is stepping in on short notice to debut in the UFC. That alone is more than many fighters can handle. His promotional debut will be the co-main event in the UFC against Neil Magny. That is too much.
Neil Magny wins via 2nd round TKO
Arnold Allen vs Mads Burnell
Arnold Allen is one of the most promising fighters from the UK, we can even say he is one of the most promising fighters in Europe. He is undefeated in his three fights in the UFC and we can´t see him lose this one.
Prediction: Arnold Allen wins via decision.
Makwan Amirkhani vs Jason Knight
Mr Finland as he is called, Makwan Amirkhani is a really good fighter, he is 3-1 in the UFC, he lost his last fight against Arnold Allen in 2017. He is fun to watch and has a bright future ahead of him in the UFC. Jason Knight is really tough he has lost his last two fights and has his back against the wall in this fight. He has to win this one or he will probably get the boot from the UFC. He has notable wins over Dan Hooker and Alex Caceres this fight is very hard to predict. But we think that Makwan Amirkhani will not lose his second fight in a row.
Prediction: Makwan Amirkhani wins via decision and this fight will be the fight of the night.
Manny Bermudez vs Davey Grant
When Manny Bermudez fights, he submits his opponents. Unfortunately for him, that is the way, Davey Grant finishes his fights as well. This fight will go straight to the ground were either one submits the other.
Prediction: Manny Bermudez wins via 2nd round submission.
Eric Spicely vs Darren Stewart
Both fighters are on a losing streak. Eric Spicely has lost two in a row, Darren Stewart has lost 3 in a row. The fighter who lose their fight here will get the boot from UFC. We believe Darren will be the unfortunate fighter that will be booted.
Prediction: Eric Spicely wins via 3rd round submission decision.
Claudio Silva vs Nordine Taleb
Prediction: Claudio Silva wins via 2nd round submission
Daniel Kelly vs Tom Breese
Prediction: Daniel Kelly wins via decision
Bradley Scott vs Carlo Pedersoli jr.
Prediction: Carlo Pedersoli jr. wins via 1st round submission.
Gillian Robertson vs Molly McCann
Prediction: Molly McCann wins via 3rd round TKO
Elias Theodorou vs Trevor Smith
Prediction: Elias Theodorou wins via decision
Gina Mazany vs Lina Lansberg
Prediction: Gina Mazany wins via decision
