As the sports world seemed to somewhat return earlier this week with the KBO, there is only so much Korean baseball we can watch.
Thanks to our king, UFC President, Dana White we have the opportunity to get our sports fix in on Saturday, May 9, with UFC 249.
This isn’t just any regular card; this card is absolutely stacked from top to bottom. Personally, this card is a birthday gift from Dana to me.
From title bouts and rematches between future hall of famers, to multiple Heavyweight battles practically guaranteed to end with someone knocked out cold, this card is going to be fireworks.
I’ll have a prediction for every fight on my twitter, @thiskid_coby5 Saturday morning.
5. Middleweight: #10 Uriah Hall vs Jacare Souza
Stylistically this is a great matchup. Uriah Hall has been one of my favorite fighters to watch since he’s been in the UFC. The guy fights like he’s in a video game and he has some of the flashiest kicks on the roster. Jacare is an all-around beast, he has good stand up and an even better ground game. Hall has won three of his last four, two of which by KO however, Jacare is a step up in competition from the last couple opponents he’s had. Souza is a 40 year-old on a two fight losing streak, but don’t let that fool you. Jacare was in the top three of the Middleweight division for a while, just never got the belt. A fun fact about Jacare is that he hasn’t won a decision since 2014 and he has been to five of them since.
4. Welterweight: #6 LW Cowboy Cerrone vs #15 Anthony Pettis 2
