UFC 231 Predictions!

It´s fight day! The UFC 231 is today! Two titles are on the line tonight Valentina Shevchenko and Joanna Jedrzejczyk will fight for the UFC Flyweight title and finally, we get to see Max Holloway vs Brian Ortega for the UFC featherweight title. Gunnar Nelson will return to the octagon after one and a half year layoff from the octagon. We are very excited to see him back in action, his opponent Alex Oliveira has been very active since he joined the UFC in 2015 and could be a tricky matchup for Gunni. Hakeem Dawodu is a very exciting fighter that has not shown his full potential in the UFC yet. Hakeem has a tough task in front of him in Kyle Bochiak.

The card is stacked from bottom to the main event with very exciting fights and we can´t wait to watch every single fight tonight!

We are ready with our predictions for the card. As always the shadowed fighter is the one that we predict to lose their fight.

Main Event
Max Holloway vs Brian Ortega for the UFC Featherweight Title
We love both fighters, Max Holloway is on 12 fight winning streak and has won all of the best fighters in the featherweight division there is nothing that tells us that he can lose a fight at the moment, but he has not fought since December 2017. He was supposed to fight Frankie Edgar in March but the fight was cancelled due to Holloway´s leg injury. Max stepped in on a very short notice against Khabib Nurmagomedov in April but had to cancel it because of a problem with the weight cut. Max Holloway vs Brian Ortega was supposed to happen in July 2018 but nobody knows what happened to Max Holloway during the weight cut before the fight, the fight was cancelled because of Max´s Concussion-like symptoms. We believe that this weight class is not the right one for Max Holloway and as of lately he has been struggling to get the weight. Brian Ortega is an undefeated young fighter that continues to surprise people. He will do it again tonight.
