Depending on the result of each bout, this card could see the belt swap hands in both the main and the co main event. An entertaining card that sees the Suga Show roll into Boston (along with Conor McGregor ringside – we all know what happens next). Can he dethrone the man who turned ‘Triple C’ into ‘Double C’? Let’s find out!

UFC 292

Main Card (BT Sport)

Aljamain Sterling (c) vs. Sean O’ Malley (Bantamweight)

So many things to consider here – Sterling beat Cejudo in his last bout, a task not many thought he could do. Yes, he’s fought Yan, but has he faced a striker with the power and precision as Suga? On the other hand, has O’ Malley ever faced a wrestler as good as Funkmaster? Deep down we all know there are two outcomes to this one. Either O’ Malley takes him out inside two rounds, or he gets dry humped for the entire fight. O’ Malley fans don’t be too disheartened by our official pick – be sure to check out our wildcard at the bottom of the page.

WINNER: Sterling

METHOD: Decision


Zhang Weili (c) vs. Amanda Lemos (Women’s Strawweight)

Another Brazilian by the name of Amanda with attempt to take her own gold by defeating fan favourite Zhang Weili. Can she do it? Many will say she has a punchers chance, and it is true, but the Chinese superstar appears to have ironed out the flaws in her game and will turn up the heat. We almost went with a late stoppage but think Weili gets a UD.


METHOD: Decision


Ian Machado Garry vs. Neil Magny (Lightweight)

Whether you like him or not, there is no denying the young Irishman is a real talent. Magny is a real company man who gets in there with anyone, but he is getting his head punched off against the tall striker.




Da’Mon Blackshear vs. Mario Bautista (Bantamweight)

A producing an incredible twister submission just last week ‘Da Monster’ dives straight back in to replace Cody Garbrandt. It might be asking a little too much but what the heck…let’s have another twister!

WINNER: Blackshear

METHOD: Submission


Marlon Vera vs. Pedro Munhoz (Bantamweight)

Super tough one to call so we will be leaving off our accumulator. Most likely to the go the distance and we’ve gone with Vera just because we want the O’ Malley rematch to go down at some point (if O’ Malley beats Sterling obviously)


METHOD: Decision


Preliminary Card (BT Sport)

Chris Weidman vs. Brad Tavares (Middleweight)

Even though he is a former champion with a plethora of experience we simply can’t overlook the fact that Brad Tavares is totally underestimated in the division – and Weidman has been out for two years after breaking bones in his leg for the second time. Not sure what he is hoping to achieve with another comeback but who are we to stop him. Fingers crossed he leaves the Octagon unhurt. We genuinely mean that.

WINNER: Tavares



Gregory Rodrigues vs. Denis Tiuliulin (Middleweight)

The biggest barn burner on the card for sure! Odds for Tiuliulin to win by knockout will be worth a punt but we’ll be taking ‘Robocop’ to get back on his path of destruction in the first round.

WINNER: Rodrigues



Austin Hubbard vs. Kurt Holobaugh (Lightweight)

Following two impressive victories in XFC, Holobaugh makes his return to the UFC (a stint on DWCS followed by three consecutive losses in the UFC got him sent packing). Will it be different for him this time round? He is up against ‘Thud’ a man who thoroughly enjoys going the distance in pretty much every fight. If Holobaugh can’t put him away early doors, this one only goes one way.

WINNER: Holobaugh

METHOD: Decision


Early Preliminary Card (UFC Fight Pass)

Andre Petroski vs. Gerald Meerschaert (Middleweight)

We have a lot of time for Meerschaert, he seems like a decent guy, but picking him is just too risky these days. Might end up leaving this one off the accumulator but if we had to pick it would be Petroski to test the chin.

WINNER: Petroski



Andrea Lee vs. Natalia Silva (Women’s Flyweight)

Andrea Lee has certainly paid her dues but coming in to this one with two back-to-back losses on her record does not bode well for her - plus the fact Natalia Silva is the real deal (or seems to be anyways). A real upset if Lee can scrape a win.


METHOD: Submission


Karine Silva vs. Maryna Moroz (Women’s Flyweight)

A battle between two athletes who love a good submission often results in a draw as not much happens, if neither does get the tap, expect Silva to do enough to get the nod.


METHOD: Decision
