UFC on FOX 24: Johnson vs Reis predictions

UFC Vegas 47: Jack Hermansson or Sean Strickland?
7 votes

The UFC is in Kansas City as flyweight champion attempts to break Anderson Silva’s 10 consecutive title defences record with a victory over No.3 Brazilian Wilson Reis in the main event.

Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the main card.

MAIN CARD (8PM ET/5PM PT)

#5 JEREMY STEPHENS (25-13-0) VS RENATO MOICANO (10-0-1)

UFC on FOX 24

Andrews: Stephens can be beaten with superior Jiu-Jitsu, but I’m not sure Carniero has the stuff to do it. I have to go with the knockout power, grappling and experience of Stephens to overcome the ground game of “Moicano.”

Andrews Prediction: Jeremy Stephens via unanimous decision

#3 RONALDO SOUZA (24-4-0, 1NC) VS #6 ROBERT WHITTAKER (18-4-0)

UFC on FOX 24

Andrews: If the fight goes to the ground, Jacare obviously has the advantage, but Whittaker has a some octagon-savvy that should not be underestimated. I still wonder how Souza let Romero beat him, and think Whittaker could outsmart him too. But I have to go with Jacare.

Andrews Prediction: Ronaldo Souza via submission

#4 ROSE NAMAJUNAS (6-3-0) VS #6 MICHELLE WATERSON (14-4-0)

Andrews: Namajunas is in a bit of a funk, as she was out struck by Kowalkiewicz in her last fight. I expect her to get thuggish, but Michelle Waterson will keep the fight standing and beat her to the punch, like Karolina did.

Andrews Prediction: Michelle Waterson via split- decision

MAIN EVENT

DEMETRIOUS JOHNSON (25-2-1) VS #3 WILSON REIS (22-6-0)

UFC on FOX 24

Andrews:Reis has good wrestling and can make things interesting if he catches Johnson with a power shot. But Johnson is better all-around and it would take a sub-par performance from him for Reis to pull off the upset. Johnson is always prepared for victory.

Andrews Prediction: Demetrious Johnson via unanimous decision
