UFC Vegas 77 predictions

According to legendary Jon Anik, the hits just keep coming!

UFC 290’s adrenaline rush is set to continue as UFC is making a comeback to the APEX with UFC Vegas 77, headlined by a women’s bantamweight battle between Holly Holm and Mayra Bueno Silva.

Following her unanimous victory against Yana Santos, Holm is arguably in the best form she has seen in years. As Amanda Nunes steps away from her longtime reign, the 135-pound division is left with a vacant throne. Given her legacy and ranking, Holm could be the next contender if she pulls off a win this Saturday.

However, Holm’s path is blocked by the rising star, Bueno Silva. Currently undefeated at bantamweight and riding a three-win streak since moving up to 135 pounds in 2022, Bueno Silva could skyrocket in the UFC rankings with a victory over Holm.

In the co-main event, the MMA’s rising star, Jack Della Maddalena, faces a sudden challenger, Bassil Hafez. This bout came to be after “JDM” had two abrupt cancellations at UFC 290. If Hafez manages an upset, it could change his life overnight.

The event will also feature intense lightweight matches — Ottman Azaitar vs. Francisco Prado and Terrance McKinney vs. Nazim Sadykhov. Also, there’s the potential final women’s featherweight battle in UFC history as Norma Dumont takes on Chelsea Chandler.

Holly Holm vs. Mayra Bueno Silva:

Holm, a UFC mainstay for nearly a decade, remains a formidable opponent in women’s MMA. Her striking skills and lethal head kicks are worth watching, while her developed grappling skills prove that age is just a number. On the other hand, Bueno Silva has been remarkable since her return to bantamweight, using her aggressive game plan to exploit her opponent’s weaknesses. She could be a tough nut to crack for Holm.

Pick: Holly Holm

Jack Della Maddalena vs. Bassil Hafez:

Hafez is a massive underdog in this fight for a reason. Maddalena, one of the most exciting prospects in MMA, is likely to clinch another first-round finish.

Pick: Jack Della Maddalena

Ottman Azaitar vs. Francisco Prado:

Prado, at just 21 years old, shows promise. Azaitar will have to bounce back from his first career loss, but whether he can pull it off against a well-rounded fighter like Prado remains questionable.

Pick: Francisco Prado

Albert Duraev vs. Jun Yong Park:

Despite my previous doubts, Park, “The Iron Turtle,” keeps proving his worth. The question in this match is who can assert more pressure. Here, I’m siding with Park.

Pick: Jun Yong Park

Norma Dumont vs. Chelsea Chandler:

Dumont has impressed in the octagon, with her fast hands and stance switches being the key against Chandler. Chandler’s aggressive fighting style might not be enough against Dumont’s technical superiority.

Pick: Norma Dumont

Terrance McKinney vs. Nazim Sadykhov:

Both McKinney and Sadykhov are finishers. However, McKinney’s raw aggression could be a game-changer if Sadykhov can’t withstand it.

Pick: Terrance McKinney

Preliminary Results:

Tucker Lutz won over Melsik Baghdasaryan

Viktoriya Dudakova won over Istela Nunes

Malquizael Costa won over Austin Lingo

Evan Elder won over Genaro Valdez

Azat Maksum won over Tyson Nam

Alex Munoz won over Carl Deaton III

Ailin Perez won over Ashlee Evans-Smith
