UFC Fight Night 126: Cowboy vs. Medeiros predictions

The UFC is in Austin, Texas as welterweights Donald Cerrone and Yancy Medeiros made weight and are preparing to throw down in the main event.

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

MAIN CARD (9PM ET/6PM PT)

SAGE NORTHCUTT (9-2-0) VS. THIBAULT GOUTI (11-3-0)

UFC Fight Night 126

Andrews: Sage has got this one, after a few moments of difficulty.

Andrews Prediction: Sage Northcutt via UD

STEVEN PETERSON (15-6-0) VS. BRANDON DAVIS (8-3-0)

UFC Fight Night 126

Andrews: Both guys are former Dana White Contender Fight Series participants. Davis lost a decision at UFC 220, but I’ll think he’ll return to the win column in Austin.

Andrews Prediction: Brandon Davis via UD

THIAGO ALVES (27-11-0) VS. CURTIS MILLENDER (14-3-0)

Andrews: Millender is making his octagon debut from LFA and has a big six-inch reach advantage, but he’s never faced a quality guy like Alves. The Pitbull’s chin isn’t like it was, but he has the experience that money can’t buy.

Andrews Prediction: Thiago Alves via UD.

#12 JAMES VICK (12-1-0) VS. #14 FRANCISCO TRINALDO (22-5-0)

UFC Fight Night 126

Andrews: I think Vick can deal with the wrestling of Trinaldo and land enough strikes to take the fight on points.

Andrews Prediction: James Vick via UD

#7 DERRICK LEWIS (18-5-0, 1NC) VS. #9 MARCIN TYBURA (16-3-0)

UFC Fight Night 126

Andrews: Tough one to call. Lewis is a tough guy but Tybura is the more technical guy who isn’t as powerful. Look for Tybura to wear Lewis out if he can’t crack him.

Andrews Prediction: Marcin Tybura via UD 

MAIN EVENT

DONALD CERRONE (32-10-0, 1NC) VS. YANCY MEDEIROS (15-4-0, 1NC)

UFC Fight Night 126

Andrews: Which Donald Cerrone is going to show up? Yancy is hungry to win, like Cerrone used to be. Cerrone still has the skills to win, but can be overcome these days. Despite Cerrone being the superior fighter on paper, I have to go with Yancy’s determination to steal the fight.

Andrews Prediction: Yancy Medeiros via TKO
