Women's fights, despite their increased popularity, do not cause as much public interest as men's fights, no matter how someone tries to fix it. However, there are times when fans are eagerly awaiting the appearance of their favorites in the octagon, and Rose Namayunas' rematch against Weili Jang is one of them. Their fight at UFC 261 shocked the public, and the losing Chinese title still considers that stoppage premature.

Rose Namayunas vs Weili Zhang
Now she will have the opportunity to rectify the situation and get even with the American at UFC 268, in the co-main event of the event. Is Rose ready to carry out the first defense as convincingly as she did when she took the belt? We will get an answer to this question only while watching the fight, and now our task is to determine which of the participants has the most chances of winning.
Despite the fact that for two years the holder of the UFC middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya, has easily stopped one challenger after another, it is still too early to say that we are dealing with a dominant champion. The themes of his low resilience and weak grappling skills have still not been fully explored, while there are still guys on the promotion roster who can do it, such as Paulo Costa and Marvin Vettori. And although both athletes have already lost to the New Zealander before, each of them can get another chance to give answers to questions of interest to many fans of mixed martial arts.

Paulo Costa vs Marvin Vettori
But first of all, they will have to find out who is more worthy of this opportunity. In the main event of UFC Fight Night 196, which will take place on October 24, their face-to-face meeting will take place, which promises to result in a competitive and uncompromising fight, because the feeling of revenge is a great motivator.
The first fight of Andrey Orlovsky under the UFC banner took place in 2000, and this athlete still manages to perform at such a high level, albeit with varying success. At the Fight Night 195 tournament, as a co-main event of the event, he will have to fight the Brazilian Carlos Filipe, who is the young blood in the heavyweight division of the organization.

Andrey Orlovsky vs Carlos Filipe
Top places in the ratings are not at stake, and even more so any title ambitions of one of the fighters. Still, this is a great opportunity for Carlos to gain a media boost if he manages to surpass the veteran who still threatens his opponents with his heavy punches. Let's move on to the analysis of the athletes and find out which of them will be the triumph of the upcoming meeting.
In 2015, Ukrainian athlete Marina Moroz was signed to the UFC with 5 professional fights under her belt. Now, "Iron Lady" will enter the 9th fight under the auspices of the best MMA promotion in the world, and will be opposed by the winner of the "Dana White Contenders Series", Luana Carolina. The girls will play on the undercard of UFC Fight Night 195, and for Marina it will be a comeback after a long absence of a year and a half.

Marina Moroz vs Luana Carolina
Fighters with a bright and engaging image have always been in demand in MMA, even if their results left much to be desired. Johnny Walker is a prime example of this. It was assumed that two defeats in a row alienated him from the prospect of fighting against the strongest representatives of the light heavyweight division of the UFC for at least a few next appearances. But in fact, in his case, one not the most confident victory was enough to reach the top of the division. One way or another, the new opponent of the shocking Brazilian will be his compatriot and league veteran Thiago Santos. And this is a great matchup, as both fighters are now in dire need of victory and represent kickboxing school, which is why their meeting, which will take place on October 3 as part of the main event of UFC Fight Night 193, promises to be remembered by the audience for its tension and entertainment.


The honor of opening the first October UFC tournament fell to the girls from the lightest weight category - Antonina Shevchenko, and the Australian undefeated athlete, Casey O'Neill, who train in the same club - Tiger Muay Thai. “Panther” got into a very difficult situation due to defeats to all top rivals, and now they shouldn't think about getting to the top of the division.

Antonina Shevchenko vs Casey O'Neill
But Casey, on the contrary, only this year broke into the promotion, and has already won important victories for herself. Their meeting will take place in Las Vegas, under the banner of the UFC Vegas 38 tournament, or as it is numbered at the official level - UFC Fight Night 193. Which of the ladies has more chances of triumph in this fight, and what is the balance of power for this pair - we will analyze in forecast.
At the first UFC Fight Night 193 event in October, the two league middleweights will be tied for the top 15 in the division. Kevin Holland has already managed to fall in love with the public for his unconventional fighting style and loud finishes, but his opponent, Kyle Dokas, while fighting with little-known opposition, while losing most of his performances in the world's best promotion.

Kevin Holland vs Kyle Dokas
Their fight will become a co-main event of the upcoming tournament, and this time the matchmakers again decided to bring athletes from different schools together: the drummer, in the person of Kevin, will try to stop the pressure of the skillful grappler. Despite the difference in odds, this confrontation can become very competitive, and our task is to find out whose technique and skills will be the best in this case.
In the history of mixed martial arts, there have been many examples of fighters who did not have the ability to adapt to their opponents and simply refused to fight reasonably. Ion Cucelaba is a vivid example of this caste of athletes, because he doesn't care what the opponent's plan for the fight is, the only goal for this guy is to take the head off the one who stands in front of him.

Ion Cucelaba vs Devin Clark
In the third most important fight at UFC Fight Night 192, the Moldovan Hulk will face Devin Clark, who also does not have a high fighting IQ. Neither one nor the other is included in the ratings, so a victory in this confrontation for any of them will be an opportunity to cover past failures and start moving forward.
UFC veteran Anthony Smith has long been considered a serious threat to light heavyweight champion John Jones until he came face to face with him. After, the career of "Lionheart" began to decline, but now he has come to another "rebirth", having gained a couple of convincing victories.

Anthony Smith vs Ryan Spann
In the main event of the evening at UFC Fight Night 192, Anthony will face “Superman” from Texas - Ryan Spann, who has gained serious momentum lately. The high percentage of early victories for both promises the audience a bright spectacle, and who will emerge from it as the winner - we will analyze it in our forecast.
The heavyweight division is currently the most competitive division in the UFC, with many prospecting a chance to win the title. One of the best Russian heavyweights in the industry, Sergei Pavlovich, also has it, however, so that after pronouncing this statement does not leave an aftertaste of uncertainty, you first need to see what he is after two years of inactivity.

Tom Aspinall vs Sergey Pavlovich
And this can be done on September 5 when watching the UFC Fight Night 191 tournament, in which Tom Aspinall will become his opponent. The Briton certainly cannot be called a fighter chosen for an easy return, since, along with the Russian, he is one of the main avenues for the heavy weight of the organization and has not yet lost under its sign, as a result of which an exciting and competitive confrontation awaits us.
You can look at three things endlessly: how the fire burns, how the water flows and how Amanda Nunes gets rivals who neither in theory nor in practice pose any danger to her. It is difficult to say how long this will last, since it seems that Dana White himself does not know for what reason he is not organizing her trilogy with Valentina Shevchenko.

Forecast for the fight Amanda Nunes vs Julianna Peña
Julianna Pena, once a promising athlete who at one time had every chance to gain a foothold in the top list, agreed to become the next victim of the double league champion, but in the end decided to take up her personal life, and returning after two and a half years of downtime, she won two victories with one defeat, which earned her a title chance. The face-to-face meeting of the athletes will take place as part of the second most important event of the UFC 265 tournament, which will be held on August 8.
In the UFC welterweight category, a difficult situation has developed: the dominant champion Kamaru Usman does not plan to leave the throne, and there are no new contenders on the horizon yet. For this reason, the title holder has to beat the same opponents in the second round, but in the near future the situation may change.

Vicente Luca vs Michael Chiesa
The Brazilian athlete, Vicente Luce, has come close to the top five, and the last obstacle before getting into the elite list is Michael Chiesa. In the main card of UFC 265, these two will challenge for a place not only in the rating table, but also in the race for the title, so a lot of attention will be focused on their confrontation, especially from the promotion management.
The third most important fight at UFC 265 will be the confrontation of Brazilian veterans from the lightest weight category – ex-champion Jose Aldo will clash with Pedro Munoz. For Jose, this match is an extremely risky undertaking, because the opponent is much lower than him in the ratings, but there was simply no other way out for the matchmakers, since the "King of Rio" lost to most of those who were in higher positions.

Forecast for the Jose Aldo vs Pedro Munoz fight
Given the style in which athletes fight, we will expect a tense and definitely competitive duel. Our task is to help you figure out which of the participants has the best chance of winning, because despite the quotes, the result may be the most unexpected.
One of the youngest representatives of the Nurmagomedov clan, Usman, after several years of performing in Russia, finally reached the second most important promotion in the United States. The Bellator organization has prepared another fight for our fighter in the shortest possible time, and this time he will have to meet with an athlete from Oklahoma – Luis Muro, within the framework of the 263 tournament, which will be held at the Mohegan Sun Arena. The main question that the fans are facing is: will Usman be able to keep the "0" in the defeat column and move on? We will try to answer it in our forecast.

Forecast for the fight Usman Nurmagomedov vs Luis Muro
Over the past few years, the UFC lightweight has been shaken by several events, one of which was the two-year disqualification of T. J. Dillashaw. It seemed that the retirement age for this division, the refusal of prohibited substances and the crushing defeat in the last performance would significantly lower the value of its shares. But, despite all these moments, in the spring of the year before last, fans of mixed martial arts froze in anticipation of the return of once one of the most formidable bantamweights of the league.

Corey Sandhagen vs T. J. Dillashaw fight Forecast
And we waited – on July 25, as part of the main fight of the UFC Fight Night 191 tournament, the veteran will enter the octagon after a long downtime and fight against Corey Sandhagen, who may turn out to be both a guide to another title fight, and an executioner who put an end to a once bright career.
The main card of the UFC Fight Night 191 tournament was replenished with the confrontation of the Russian heavyweight, Shamil Abdurakhimov, who disappeared from the radar back in 2019, and Chris Daukas, who is going on an impressive series of early victories. Both athletes are in the top ten, but this is a more profitable fight for the American, because he can rise in the rating table by three points at once. Which of them has the best chance of winning and how this meeting will end, we will understand in our forecast.

The forecast for the fight Shamil Abdurakhimov vs Chris Daukas
One of the first fights at UFC on ESPN 26, will be a meeting of fighters from the welterweight division: Russian Abubakar Nurmagomedov, will fight with the American knockout, Daniel Rodriguez. For Abubakar, this will be one of the biggest challenges of all his performances in the organization, because a lot depends on the results of his performance.

Prediction Abubakar Nurmagomedov vs Daniel Rodriguez
Rodriguez appeared in the promotion just last year, but he has already managed to make a noise thanks to the amazing frequency of appearances in the cage. Bookmakers rate rivals as almost equal, but whether this is really the case, we will understand this forecast.
The UFC leadership is working on various strategies for the development of certain fighters. If some take off in the ratings after 2-3 fights, then others have been fighting for a place in the TOP 15 for years. Islam Makhachev belongs to the second type, because he has been in the UFC since 2015, but still gets those who are below him in the ratings as opponents. However, this time for an athlete from AKA, we have prepared a difficult opponent, even if he is not so popular.

Prediction for the fight Islam Makhachev vs Tiago Moises
Tiago Moises is a strong grappler, and his style will make it possible to finally reveal all the talents of Islam. Let's just say that this is the last step, after passing which, our fighter will finally convince everyone of his championship ambitions. And the fact that the guys will lead the tournament indicates the high confidence of the bosses in their capabilities. Whether it will be another triumph of the Dagestani or an apset is waiting for us – we will understand this forecast.
On July 25, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, the current world heavyweight champion according to the World Boxing Council, undefeated Briton Tyson "Gypsy King" Fury, will hold the 1st title defense against his former long-term owner, American puncher Deontay Wilder, nicknamed "The Bronze Bomber". The fight will be their 3rd confrontation, and Wilder won the right to this rematch by the decision of the US arbitration court.

The forecast for the Tyson Fury – Deontay Wilder fight. The third battle
The main card of UFC 264 was opened by the guys from the lightest weight – the newly minted star of the organization, Sean O'Malley, and the fighter who makes the second run in the promotion, Louis Smolka. Not so long ago, "Sugar" practically implemented its plan and got into the ratings, but after an annoying loss to Marlon Vera, it turned out to be beyond its limits.

Predictions for the fight Sean O'Malley – Louis Smolka
Another victory can bring him closer not only to the top, but also to higher-class opponents. And it is worth noting that Smolka is an ideal opponent for the next step. Will O'Malley be able to pass an experienced vis-a-vis, or will he face an unexpected defeat? We will try to understand this.
One of the most sprawling trilogies in the history of the UFC will soon get its end. The story of Conor McGregor and Dustin Porrier, began back in 2014. After that, the fighters had a rematch in January 2021, and now the promotion's management decided to bring them together for the third time at the big, numbered UFC 264 tournament, which will be headed by lightweights. The confrontation will take place within the framework of 5 rounds, in the category up to 70 kg, and the title of the main contender for the title of champion will be at stake.

Prediction for the Conor McGregor – Dustin Poirier fight, part 3
The debate over whether McGregor still has at least something with which he pleased the audience a few years ago does not fade for a second. And to understand this whole situation, we suggest that you conduct a thorough analysis of the participants of the main fight of the evening, and as a result determine which of them has the best chance of winning.

The first UFC tournament in June is full of heavyweight fights. The second most important fight of the event, Fight Night 189, will be a meeting between Marcin Tybura from Poland, and Walt Harris, who is going through the worst times in his career. For Tybura, this is a great opportunity to get into the top ten of the rating, and given the winning streak it is on, it is very close to the TOP 5.

Marcin Tybura vs Walt Harris fight prediction
This confrontation is an ordinary rating battle, but it will definitely be one of the most striking, because the participants simply do not know how to finish their performances boring. The bookmakers have identified their favorite, but we will have to figure out who actually has the best chance of winning, because the arsenals of Tybura and Harris are quite different.
In the middle of 2020, Roman Dolidze made his debut in the UFC, and in less than 12 months, for the fourth time goes to the octagon. His opponent has changed, and now the Georgian fighter will have to face Laureano Staropoli, who shared a cage with quite famous fighters.

The regulations provide for a 3-round format, while Mayweather gives a serious handicap in weight – the opponent must meet 86.2 kg, and Floyd will box as a middleweight (up to 72.5 kg).

Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs Logan Paul Fight Predictions
After a disastrous 2020, Tony Ferguson is still one of the best in the lightweight division. Having yielded to Justin Gagey in the Candidates' match, “El Cucuy” had every chance of getting into the title queue, entering the cage with Charles Oliveira, but this opponent turned out to be impassable for him.

Prediction for the fight Tony Ferguson vs Beneil Dariush
Now, the matchmakers decided to simplify the task of the audience's favorite by arranging a fight with Beneil Dariush, who, although he demonstrates great success, is still not an athlete of the level that Tony had to deal with earlier. However, Beneil gained serious momentum, and Ferguson just slowed them down, which definitely makes their meeting intriguing. At UFC 262, it will become clear who deserves a spot in the organization's top five lightweights.
One of the brightest fighters of the Bellator organization, representing Great Britain-Michael Page, continues his ascent to the top. His next fight will take place under the banner of the 258 tournament, and the opponent will be an athlete nicknamed "The Barbarian", Derek Anderson. This character is not familiar to everyone, although he has been playing in the league for the last 7 years.

Michael Page vs Derek Anderson fight prediction
After the loss to Douglas Lima, Venom no longer faced top opposition, taking down mostly passing opponents. But Anderson can not be attributed to such, because he is very good, even if he does not have a big name. The upcoming fight will show whether Paige is ready to break back to the top of the ratings and fight with someone more serious.
The PFL kicks off the next round of the 2021 Grand Prix with $ 1 million at stake.
