predictions for UFC 212 pay-per-view Aldo vs Holloway

MAIN CARD

FEATHERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP: Jose Aldo (c) vs Max Holloway (ic)

I really don't know who I want to win or who I think will win. Whoever does win, I'd like McGregor to come back and beat just to prove he's still the best at 145ibs.

PREDICTION: Erm... Jose Aldo, 2nd round KO?

STRAWWEIGHT: Claudia Gadelha (#1) vs Karolina Kowalkiewicz (#2)

I'm a big fan of Kowalkiewicz, but Gadelha is a very good fighter. Neither of them are going to beat Joanna Jedrzejczyk, but it should still be a good fight.

PREDICTION: Karolina Kowalkiewicz, decision.

MIDDLEWEIGHT: Vitor Belfort (#11) vs Nate Marquardt

Another tough fight to call, but I think Belfort should get a close win.

PREDICTION: Vitor Belfort, decision.

MIDDLEWEIGHT: Paulo Borrachinha vs Oluwale Bamgbose

This will be Bamgbose's 3rd fight of the year already, but Borrachinha fought as recently as March as well. I would usually back the undefeated guy, but not this time.

PREDICTION: Oluwale Bamgbose, 2nd round KO.

WELTERWEIGHT: Erick Silva vs Yancy Medeiros

I don't know as much as I'd like about either of these guys, but I think Medeiros will steal this.

RESULT: Yancy Medeiros, decision.

PRELIMINARY CARD

BANTAMWEIGHT: Raphael Assuncao (#3) vs Marlon Moraes

Surely Assuncao just wins, right?

PREDICTION: Raphael Assuncao, 2nd round submission.

MIDDLEWEIGHT: Antonio Carlos Junior vs Eric Spicely

Carlos Junior will try to get this to the ground and I think that will be Spicely's downfall.

PREDICTION: Antonio Carlos Junior, 1st round submission.

BANTAMWEIGHT: Johnny Eduardo (#10) vs Matthew Lopez

This could shoot Lopez into the limelight, or stunt his progression in the rankings.

PREDICTION: Johnny Eduardo, decision. I hope Lopez looks strong in defeat.

BANTAMWEIGHT: Iuri Alcantara vs Brian Kelleher

I like Alcantara, he's not on the same level as the top Bantamweights, but should get the win here.

PREDICTION: Iuri Alcantara, 2nd round KO.

EARLY PRELIMINARY CARD

STRAWWEIGHT: Viviane Pereira vs Jamie Moyle

12-0 vs 4-1. Surely?

PREDICTION: Viviane Pereira, 2nd round KO.

WELTERWEIGHT: Luan Chagas vs Jim Wallhead

I'm not sure here, so I'll back my compatriot.

PREDICTION: Jim Wallhead, decision.

FLYWEIGHT: Marco Beltran vs Deiveson Figueiredo

8-5 vs 11-0. Surely?

PREDICTION: Deiveson Figueiredo, 3rd round KO.
