UFC Fight Night Predictions

In another UFC event unfolding behind closed doors, bantamweight title prospects Cory Sandhagen and TJ Dillashaw touch gloves with each other. Dillashaw is returning after a two-year suspension levied upon him by USADA for drug charges. He tested positive for EPO (Erythropoietin) and apologized to his fans later for indulging in such behaviour. These two were pegged to fight earlier in May but the bout got postponed after Dillashaw’s injury.

Joining Dillashaw, another fighter makes her comeback on the upcoming fight night. Women’s bantamweight fighter Aspen Ladd steps into the octagon after almost two years. Going through a leg surgery in the meantime, this vulnerability might be a part of Chiasson’s plan for the fight night. Other talents in the fight card include Kyler Phillips, Raulian Paiva, Miranda Maverick and Darren Elkins.

Predictions:

Cory Sandhagen vs Tj Dillashaw

Two of the best bantamweights in UFC clash on Saturday. The epitome of variance, Cory Sandhagen fights the “Snake” TJ Dillashaw in the main event of the UFC. A sort of vagueness prevails in the bantamweight division, Aljamain Sterling become the first UFC fighter to win a title through disqualification. The person who can break through the haze might be the winner of the upcoming fight night. Sandhagen barely missed the opportunity to overpower Aljamain Sterling but he has built a good momentum in recent time. He won the performance of the night in both the last two fights, a flying knee to Frankie Edgar and a spinning wheel kick to Marlon Moraes brought that honour.

Though becoming noted for his quick finishes, Sandhagen hasn’t been tested for five rounds. This hints at a major advantage to Tj Dillashaw. The former champ has been in five-round bouts and has won them. Taking a string of bad choices before his suspension, Dillashaw is back as strong as ever. A drastic weight cut to fight Henry Cejudo in the flyweight was one of the bad choices Dillashaw made. Testing positive for a drug test, the suspension gave the necessary time Dillashaw deserved. Before that bout, he knocked out Cody Garbrandt twice on the bounce. A rear-naked choke, which defeated Sandhagen, is in the arsenal of Dillashaw. His speed, combinational punches and grappling ability along with his knack to TKO his opponents makes him a threat. Dillashaw will triumph as a victor if he can mitigate the power of Sandhagen and BettingPremier predicts that he perhaps will.

Aspen Ladd vs Macy Chiasson

Injuries, license suspension, terrible weight cut and first-ever defeat, Aspen Ladd faced a lot in the last few years. The bouts against Julianna Pena and Sara McMann were cancelled. Tearing her ACL and MCL in training, Ladd was forced to quit the McMann bout. Following her knee surgery, she is back in the cage. A knockout specialist, she is a violent fighter by all means.

Starting as a featherweight in MMA, which would have made her look nimble than she is now, Macy Chiasson experienced back-to-back wins in the category. Stepping into the octagon as a bantamweight, Chiasson defeated Gina Mazany and Sarah Moras on the trot.

Chiasson’s last three bouts have been left to the judges and all of them were decisions, while she won the latest two, Lina Lansberg defeated Chiasson. Though her record holds good, she is not equal to Ladd’s remarkable and threatening presence. Her six-inch reach advantage over Ladd is the only alarming stuff. Otherwise, Chiasson’s height makes her more vulnerable to Ladd’s ground game and power. Aspen Ladd is the hands-down favourite to win on Saturday.
