SCHAUMBURG, IL NOVEMBER 6, 2022 JACOB DIETRICH
Only a couple more sleeps. UFC 281 headlined by kickboxing rivals Israel Adesanya and Alex Pereira preventing for the middle excess weight championship and in the co-key celebration we have Carla Esparza hunting to make her title protection towards Zhang Weili. For assessment of these fights, please just take a search at Hunter Vester’s title fight preview content. We are heading to be blessed with an unbelievable function at the world’s most well-known arena, Madison Square Yard in New York, NY. If you gamble, gamble responsibly but we hope to present a few picks that will have your Saturday night time transferring in the proper way.
Michael Chandler vs. Dustin Poirier
This is going to be the people’s major celebration. A doable combat of the calendar year type struggle. A possible battle that finishes by KO or finishes after a challenging 15 minutes. A struggle that could quickly be a major function, this is likely to be amazingly entertaining. Successful this struggle could deliver a title shot or a #1 contender struggle with either Beneil Dariush or Alexander Volkanovski. Michael Chandler previous calendar year at MSG set on the fight of the calendar year with Justin Gaethje when he experienced missing but honestly I feel he will not go -2 in New York in his UFC tenure. I imagine he will mix in extra wrestling this struggle which can bring about difficulties for Poirier and eventually guide to a close struggle but a Chandler victory.
Prediction: Michael Chandler wins by Conclusion
Andre Petroski vs Wellington Turman
There can be a million good reasons this struggle is will have to check out but the a person cause I want to target on this combat is because of one particular area. Philadelphia, PA. If you have lived below a rock then you would not know, Philadelphia has had a fantastic sporting activities 12 months up right up until late when Sean Brady was the very first reduction in the UFC from this team of brothers when he shed at UFC 280 to Belal Muhammad. The Philadelphia Union missing in the MLS Cup to LAFC. The Philadelphia Phillies shed in 6 games of the World Sequence to the Houston Astros. Andre Petroski can support Philadelphia bounce back again and be a part of the Philadelphia Eagles who are undefeated in the NFL and present that the metropolis is still an elite sports city. Across the octagon is no little test as he takes on veteran, Wellington Turman. Turman is on a two battle gain streak and is a confirmed winner but has been beaten ahead of. This could proceed to support Petroski increase in recognition and continue on to increase within just the Middleweight division.
Prediction: Andre Petroski Inside of Distance
Erin Blanchfield vs Molly McCann
The highly effective media company, Barstool Athletics, will have their fingers all over this battle. Meatball Molly McCann and Erin Blanchfield will struggle it out in this fight of flyweights. In 1 of the scarce instances, it is envisioned that MSG will be cheering on the scouser around the American thanks to her media popularity considering that signing to Dave Portnoy’s corporation together with UFC enthusiast-favored, Paddy Pimblett (pictured to right). Erin Blanchfield is no joke and by far the hardest take a look at that Molly has witnessed. Erin Blanchfield may might come to feel that she is more skilled in every way but is lacking the hype that will driving her. For Molly, this will be a struggle on household turf, if this battle was in a neutral locale then I would say this is a Blanchfield earn but I am not sure how she will handle the craziness that comes with a struggle with drunk stoolies all around. Regardless this struggle will be fun, it will be talked about, and will probable attract enthusiasts in early on the card into MSG.
Prediction: Molly McCann by Knockout
