There is a huge UFC night on Saturday. UFC 225 in Chicago. Two titles on the line, middleweight title and the interim welterweight title. There is save to say that every matchup on the card is very exciting, even C.M Punk vs Mike Jackson is exciting, somebodies 0 have to go in that fight!
As always the shadowed fighter is the fighter that we predict to lose their fight.
Robert Whittaker vs Yoel Romero
This fight will be entertaining, Robert Whittaker seems to be unbeatable in this weight class at the moment. Yoel Romero, on the other hand, has looked very good throughout his career and seems to be getting better and better every fight. We know that he is 41 years old but he seems like he gets better like a wine with every year. This fight could go either way, Robert Whittaker has been dealing with injuries and we hope that he is ready and healthy if not he will definitely lose the fight.
Prediction: Robert Whittaker wins via split decision
Rafael Dos Anjos vs Colby Covington
This fight is a fight between the “good guy” and the “bad guy”. Everyone wants to see the bad guy lose, or at least that is how the ends are in fairytales. on the other hand, we want to see what Colby Covington says in the post-fight interview with Joe Rogan. But he gets the interview if he wins. But that has to wait for now.
Prediction: Rafael Dos Anjos wins via Decision
Holly Holm vs Megan Anderson
Holly Holm has not looked good in her last fights, she has lost 4 out of last five. We think Megan Anderson has what it takes to win Holly Holm and after the win, she probably will challenge Cris Cyborg for her title. That is a fight that we want to see.
Prediction: Megan Anderson wins via Decision.
Andrei Arlovski vs Tai Tuivasa
Andrei Arlovski has won two fights in a row now, before that he was on 5 fight losing streak. Andrei Arlovski is a nice guy and we appreciated him as a fighter. But we think he is past his prime and should probably leave his gloves in the octagon after this fight. Tai Tuivasa is a knockout artist. According to Sherdog, he is 7-0 and his fights have never reached the 2nd round. We are sure that he will keep this tradition in this fight.
Prediction: Tai Tuivasa wins via 1st round KO
CM Punk vs Mike Jackson
Both fighters are 0-1 in their professional career as mixed martial artists. Both fighters lost to Mickey Gall in their fights. Both fighters did not look good at all in their only UFC fight. Somebodies 0 have to go. And that will be CM Punk´s 0
Prediction: CM Punk wins via decision
