UFC on ESPN+ 37: Moraes vs. Sandhagen predictions

The UFC is back at Fight Island with a bantamweight title shot eliminator main event between Marlon Moraes and Cory Sandhagen.

All fighters made weight for the event.

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

MAIN CARD 

TOM ASPINALL (8-2-0) VS. ALAN BAUDOT (8-1-0)

UFC on ESPN+ 37

Andrews: Aspinall is the bigger guy and is welcoming Baudot to the octagon. Aspinall gets the duke.

Andrews Prediction: Tom Aspinall via TKO

MARKUS PEREZ (12-3-0) VS. DRICUS DU PLESSIS (14-2-0)

UFC on ESPN+ 37

Andrews: Perez is welcoming Du Plessis, a South African fighter from the EFC promotion, to the octagon.  Perez definitely has more experience but hasn’t fared well in the UFC. Going with the newcomer.

Andrews Prediction: Dricus Du Plessis via TKO

BEN ROTHWELL (38-12-0) VS. MARCIN TYBURA (19-6-0) 

UFC on ESPN+ 37

Andrews: Tybura looked bigger than Rothwell at the weigh-ins.  Rothwell is doing well recently, but I think Tybura steals his thunder this time.

Andrews Prediction: Marcin Tybura via UD

EDSON BARBOZA (20-9-0) VS. MAKWAN AMIRKHANI (16-4-0)

UFC on ESPN+ 37

Andrews: Barboza is long in the tooth but is still fighting at a high level. Should be enough to beat Mr. Finland.

Andrews Prediction: Edson Barboza via UD

MAIN EVENT

MARLON MORAES (23-6-1) VS. CORY SANDHAGEN (12-2-0)

UFC on ESPN+ 37

Andrews: How can you be 5-11 and 135 pounds? Moraes with a definite advantage and he uses it to gas out Cory and grind out the win.

Andrews Prediction: Marlon Moraes via TKO
