UFC on ESPN+ 3: Blachowicz vs. Santos predictions

The UFC is in Prague, Czech Republic for UFC on ESPN+ 3 where Thiago Santos has chance to leapfrog into the light heavyweight division rankings with a win over Jan Blachowicz.

A few fighters missed weight, but the card continues without any cancellations.

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

MAIN CARD (2PM ET/11AM PT)

MAGOMED ANKALAEV (10-1-0) VS. KLIDSON DE ABREU (14-2-0)

UFC on ESPN

Andrews: Ankalaev should be able to keep the fight on the ground and collect the decision.

Andrews Prediction: Magomed Ankalaev via UD

#9 JOHN DODSON (21-10-0) VS. #14 PETYR YAN (10-1-0)

UFC on ESPN

Andrews: After his last performance, I’m going with Yan over the older Dodson.

Andrews Prediction: Petyr Yan via UD

#6 LIZ CARMOUCHE (11-6-0) VS. #14 LUCIE PUDILOVA (8-2-0)

UFC on ESPN

Andrews: I think this bout is a grinder. Carmouche uses that  grappling and pressure to take the narrow decision.

Andrews Prediction: Liz Carmouche via UD

GIAN VILLANTE (17-10-0) VS. MICHAEL OLEKSIEJCZUK

UFC on ESPN

Andrews: Tough to gauge Oleksiejczuk as he is coming back from suspension. Villante has struggled through his last couple of bouts but I have to go with “Lord” with the upset.

Andrews Prediction: Michael Oleksiejczuk via TKO

STEFAN STRUVE (28-11-0) VS. MARCOS ROGERIO DE LIMA (16-5-1)

UFC on ESPN

Andrews: If Struve and avoid the big shots, he will land some of his own and get the tap of the ground.

Andrews Prediction: Stefan Struve via submission

MAIN EVENT

JAN BLACHOWICZ (23-7-0) VS. THIAGO SANTOS (20-6-0)

Andrews: Santos is either going to KO Blachowicz or gas trying and lose the decision. I think he gets him late.

Andrews Prediction: Thiago Santos via TKO
