UFC Vegas 49: Makhachev vs. Green predictions

The UFC returns to the Apex for a lightweight clash between Islam Makhachev and Bobby Green – contested at a catchweight of 160 pounds.

To think Bobby Green was 195 pounds just 10 days ago. Thank you for your service, Mr. Green.

Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the main card.  But first, a message from Dana White.

MAIN CARD (7PM ET/4PM PT)

ARMEN PETROSYAN (6-1-0) VS. GREGORY RODRIGUES (11-3-0)

UFC Vegas 49

Andrews: Good fight on paper. Armen is making his debut from DWCS. Can his kickboxing take down Rodrigues. I think Gregory has a plan for it and takes the fight with some grappling and then some strikes.

Andrews Prediction: Gregory Rodrigues via UD

ARMAN TSARUKYAN (17-2-0) VS. JOEL ALVAREZ (19-2-0)

UFC Vegas 49

Andrews: Joel drags the fight to the ground after some initial trouble and gets the tap.

Andrews Prediction: Joel Alvarez via submission

JI YONG KIM (9-4-2) VS. PRISCILLIA CACHOEIRA (10-4-0)

UFC Vegas 49

Andrews: A close fight. Kim gets the narrow decision.

Andrews Prediction: Ji Yong Kim via UD

MISHA CIRKUNOV (15-7-0) VS. WELLINGTON TURMAN (17-5-0)

Andrews: Can Cirkunov take the power? He needs to get the fight to the ground quickly. But I think he gets caught by Turman before he can.

Andrews Prediction: Wellington Turman via TKO

MAIN EVENT

#4 ISLAM MAKHACHEV (21-1-0) VS. BOBBY GREEN (29-12-1)

Andrews: Bobby Green is not going down without a fight. But Islam Makhachev will grind him out.

Andrews Prediction: Islam Makhachev via UD

Enjoy the fights.
