Paul Craig vs Volkan Oezdemir – Light Heavyweight Bout

  • We’re predicting that Craig will take the win via submission

Molly McCann vs Hannah Goldy – Women’s Flyweight Bout

  • ‘Meatball’ Molly is the heavy favourite here, and we’re predicting that she will be going for another one of her wild knockouts and will win via TKO/KO

Nikita Krylov vs Alexander Gustafsson – Light Heavyweight Bout

  • This is a close one, but we’re actually predicting that Gustafsson will actually take the win via TKO/KO

Paddy Pimblett vs Jordan Leavitt – Lightweight Bout

  • As is usually the case with Paddy ‘The Baddy,’ we’re expecting this to be an explosive affair. Leavitt is extremely strong when it comes to takedown defence and submission defence, so we’re predicting that Pimblett will try to keep the fight on the feet and go for the TKO/KO

Jack Hermansson vs Chris Curtis – Middleweight Bout

  • Curtis comes into this bout at short notice, so we’re going to be predicting Hermansson takes the win via decision as realistically he should be coming in with the better cardio

Curtis Blaydes vs Tom Aspinall – Heavyweight Main Event Bout

  • This is an absolutely huge fight for Aspinall as he looks to push towards a bout for the UFC Heavyweight title, and he actually enters the bout as the favourite. TKO/KO win for Aspinall here to cap off a massive night of action!
