6 Main Card Predictions For Ufc Fight Night: Bader vs. Saint Preux

We’ve had a lull in the world of the Ufc over the past few weeks, and while there have been Bellator and Wsof events to fill the gap, in general, much more has happened outside of the cage than inside it. Most of this is due to the cancellation of Ufc 176, which was to kick off August, but even still, there was to be a week without an event on the schedule, something that is becoming more and more of a rarity with the promotion these days.

Well, the calm before the storm is over, as the Ufc returns next weekend, this time in Bangor, Maine, with Ufc Fight Night: Bader vs. Saint Preux, numerically Ufc Fight Night 47. Following that, the promotion will once against hold two events in a single day a week later, with Ufc Fight Night: Bisping vs. Le and Ufc Fight Night: Henderson vs. Dos

Ufc 174 Main Card Results

Flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson had his belt on the line at Ufc 174 Vancouver Saturday night.

How would the champion fare? How would the return of Andrei Arlovski play out, and which Rory MacDonald would show up?

The card opened with a bout between Canadian robot-dancer and fastest knockout in Ufc history holder Ryan Jimmo going up against surging Ovince St. Preux, who scored a win with a Von Flue choke in his last fight. Holder of a calf slicer submission earlier in his career, St. Pruex’s submission arsenal is impressive, though he hasn’t actually finished with many. That seems as if it’s going to change. This bout was tough to watch due to the finish – as Ovince, who has really come on of late, worked on a kimura in the second round, Jimmo called out that his arm was broken, and the fight was stopped.
