UFC Vegas 47: Hermansson vs. Strickland predictions

The UFC is back at the Apex for a middleweight showdown between Jack Hermansson and Sean Strickland.

Both fighters are angling to crack the top 5 with a big win tonight. Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the main card.

But first, a message from Dana White.

MAIN CARD 

JULIAN EROSA (26-9-0) VS. STEVEN PETERSON (19-9-0)

UFC Vegas 47

Andrews: Erosa can finish you anywhere. After a struggle, he eventually gets the tap.

Andrews Prediction: Julian Erosa via submission

TRESEAN GORE (3-0-0) VS. BRYAN BATTLE (6-1-0)

Andrews: Whether or not they want to admit it, this is the real TUF 29 final. Battle comes out on top.

Andrews Prediction: Bryan Battle via UD

SAM ALVEY (33-16-1) VS. BRENDAN ALLAN (17-5-0)

UFC Vegas 47

Andrews: Alveys is still competitive, but winless in his last seven fights. But unfortunately, it will continue on Saturday. And Alvey’s bubble could burst.

Andrews Prediction: Brendan Allan via UD 

SHAVKAT RAKHMONOV (14-0-0) VS. CARLSTON HARRIS (17-4-0)

UFC Vegas 47

Andrews: This one is a real barnburner on paper. Both finishers and deadly on the ground. My brain says Rakhmonov, but I am pulling for Harris, who as Guyana’s only UFC fighter, is representing an entire country quite well.

Andrews Prediction: Shavkat Rakhmonov via submission

PUNAHELE SORIANO (8-1-0) VS. NICK MAXIMOV (7-0-0)

Andrews: Both fighters are DWCS certified and a close match on paper. Soriano’s UFC experience gives him the edge here.

Andrews Prediction: Punahele Soriano via UD 

MAIN EVENT (7PM ET/4PM PT)

#6 JACK HERMANSSON (22-6-0) VS. #7 SEAN STRICKLAND (24-3-0) 

Andrews: Can Strickland overcome the grappling of Hermansson and utilize his boxing? Can Hermansson keep pace strikingwise and drag the fight to the ground? I think Strickland scores enough points to get the decision.

Andrews Prediction: Sean Strickland via UD

Enjoy the fights.
