UFC Fight Night Prelims Predictions
Tracy Cortez vs Justin Kish Prediction
UFC flyweight, Tracy Cortez takes on Justin Kish in the main event of the UFC Vegas 24 Prelims card. Justin Kish is a tough opponent for Tracy Cortez. But, Cortez will get the job done in this fight. She is more skilled than her opponent Justin Kish and is on an impressive 7 fight win streak.
Justin Kish is coming off a submission loss to Sabina Marzo. Cortez will likely get the job done by decision against Kish.
Prediction: Tracey Cortez via Decision
Alexander Romanov vs Huan Espino Prediction
This fight is going to be a thriller as long as it lasts. Alexander Romanov is unbeaten in his MMA career and has 13 wins including 2 wins in UFC. On the other hand, Espino is on a 8 fight win streak including 2 wins in UFC.
But, Alexander Romanov will get the job done. He is the younger fighter with more experience. He has better striking than Espino. If Romanov can defend himself on the ground if Espino secures takedowns then he should be able to secure a TKO finish at UFC Vegas 24.
Prediction: Alexander Romanov via TKO
Jessica Penne vs Lupita Godinez Prediction
UFC strawweight Jessia Penne is making her return after a long hiatus from the division. And she is likely to lose the fight against the young up and comer Lupita Godinez. Penne had her last fight back in 2017. She was on a three-fight losing streak when she left the sport and it’s highly unlikely that she will show up after 3 years and secure a win.
Prediction: Lupita Godinez via decision
Gerald Meerschaert vs Bartosz Fabinski Prediction
Meerschaert certainly has the advantage in experience with 45 pro MMA fights. However, he is coming off a brutal KO loss to Khamzat Chimaev. He also suffered a TKO victory by Ian Heinisch before the fight against Chimaev. And at this point, there are concerns about his chin.
On the other hand, Fabinski is at a better stage in his career. He is coming off a submission loss to Andre Muniz. But, he looked good before that fight against Darren Stweart who is a solid wrestler. Fabinski will need to defend the submission threats from Meerschaert and try to get a finish with his striking.
Prediction: Bartosz Fabinski via TKO
