UFC 232 Predictions: BJ Penn vs. Ryan Hall

One of the oddest contests of the year in every way, BJ Penn vs. Ryan Hall could easily end up being an interesting fight or a tremendously saddening one. The calls for Penn to retire aren’t new, as he’s gone…

UFC 232 Predictions: Andrei Arlovski vs. Walt Harris

Despite being on a two-fight skid, Andrei Arlovski has looked better than he did a few years ago. Part of it is fighting the likes of Tai Tuivasa and Shamil Abdurakhimov, where he used to fight thunderous hitters like Francis…

UFC 232 Predictions: Corey Anderson vs. Ilir Latifi

The UFC’s light heavyweight division seems to have stopped being the worst division in the promotion, finding a good number of prospects (Dominick Reyes, Magomed Ankalaev, Aleksandar Rakic, Darko Stosic) to jump above a stagnant heavyweight division in that regard.…

UFC 232 Predictions: Carlos Condit vs. Michael Chiesa

One of the most entertaining fighters in the history of the 170-pound division, the decline of Carlos Condit has been somewhat saddening to watch, especially considering that he should’ve won the UFC Welterweight Championship but for a bad decision from…

UFC 232 Predictions: Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino vs. Amanda Nunes

Cristiane Justino, better known as “Cyborg”, has a UFC championship in her possession, but the value of that belt is very much in doubt. The UFC created the women’s featherweight division entirely for Justino’s benefit, only to predictably find no…

UFC 232 Predictions: Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson 2

Their first fight was widely acclaimed as the best light heavyweight fight ever, and yet the stakes weren’t as high for Jon Jones nor for Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 165 as they will be at UFC 232. At the time, Jon Jones…

Daniel Cormier vs. Derrick Lewis: A last-minute preview of the UFC 230 main event

Daniel Cormier vs. Derrick Lewis is a matchup made of circumstances. Lewis is 9-1 in his last ten fights in a heavyweight division that has been depleted of superstars and super talent, aside from Miocic’s reign, for the last few…

Conor McGregor proved that Tony Ferguson can beat Khabib Nurmagomedov

Before their fight at UFC 229, I predicted that Conor McGregor had the best chance of beating Khabib Nurmagomedov. Khabib’s striking ranges from unimpressive to sloppy, a style tailor-made for counters. I would like to walk back that statement and…

The Body Lock predicts Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Conor McGregor

Before Khabib Nurmagomedov battles Conor McGregor in the UFC 229 main event this weekend, The Body Lock takes a look at what to expect from the mega-fight and tries to forecast who will come out on top. Here are our…

Conor McGregor has the best chance to beat Khabib Nurmagomedov

For many, the day of reckoning has come for Conor McGregor. Conor is a great fighter, but there’s no question that the UFC brass steered the most difficult match-ups away from him. It’s odd that, in a division so full…
