UFC 192 Predictions: Part I

Published Add your comment

The UFC heads to Houston, Texas on October 3 for UFC 192. The Main Card is stacked with major connotations for at least two divisions. The Toyota Center in Houston has been home to some of the most entertaining title fights in history.

GSP v Serra at UFC 69, Edgar v Maynard III and Aldo v Florian at UFC 136 and Velasquez v Dos Santos III at UFC 166 have all set the arena alight. The audience will anticipate more of the same in Saturday night's Main Event.

In part one, we look at the Feature Fight on the Prelim Card and the first two fights on the Main Card and attempt to predict the outcome.

Joseph Benavidez v Ali Bagautinov

In the feature fight on the Prelim Card, Benavidez (22-4) takes on the Russian Bagautinov (13-3) in a Flyweight bout which is a top contender fight at 125lbs. Benavidez is on a three-fight win streak since his latest loss to Johnson.

He has only lost four times in his career, all coming in attempts to beat the greatest fighters ever at 125lbs. Two against Johnson and two against Cruz. Unfortunately, this has made Benavidez a gatekeeper at 125lbs. Bagautinov is coming off a loss of his own to Johnson which snapped an 11 fight win streak. He's 3-1 in the UFC and this is one not to miss.

Prediction: Benavidez by Decision

Jessica Eye v Julianna Pena

Jessica Eye (11-3, one no contest) is looking to get back in the title picture after her recent loss to Meisha Tate on UFC on FOX 16. Having not lived up to the hype she had coming into the UFC with a record of 1-2, one no-contest in the UFC, she faces an extremely tough test against TUF 18 winner Julianna Pena (6-2).

Pena is 2-0 officially in the UFC and has finished all of her six victories. Eye will certainly need to find the form that saw her touted as a bantamweight prospect to beat the Venezuelan Vixen. 

Prediction: Pena by Submission

Shawn Jordan v Ruslan Magomedov

In an exciting Heavyweight bout Jordan (18-6) takes on Magomedov (13-1). Jordan has seemed to finally live up to his potential of late riding a three fight win streak. In 18 wins, he has 17 finishes including 14 KO victories.

With a record of 6-3 in the UFC he will definitely be the veteran of the two. Magomedov at 28 is relatively young in the heavyweight division right now. He's riding an eight fight win streak two of which have been in the UFC. Magomedov hasn't tasted defeat since May 2011.

Prediction: Magomedov by Decision
