UFC Fight Night 58 Predictions also has the return of a former champion who looks to get back into the title picture hunt. Will Barao return in top form?
UFC Fight Night 58 Predictions: Main Card
CB Dollaway vs. Lyoto Machida
Dollaway has been on a run as of late, but the issue is how many wrestlers has Machida faces? Some a lot better than Dollaway. In fact, he face Dollaway’s training partner Ryan Bader and knocked him out cold. Do not expect any difference here.
Renan Barao vs. Mitch Gagnon
Gagnon has turned it up as of late, but to face Barao seems a little too big of a step up. If Caraway can submit him, then so can Barao. The biggest issue here is when it will come, and unless Barao cannot make weight.
Antônio Carlos Júnior vs. Patrick Cummins
This fight is between two upcoming prospects but the issue here is the skill. Junior has a good ground game and decent hands, but Cummins has the wrestling to dictate where the fight takes place. He will TKO Junior who will only grow from this loss.
Elias Silverio vs. Rashid Magomedov
Both of these fighters are grinders but unfortunately, Magomedov is a better wrestler which will mean that he can grind harder than Silvero. That means that Magomedov will win this by decision.
Erick Silva vs. Mike Rhodes
Silva has never lost two in a row and do not expect that to happen here The trend of Silva dismantling anyone outside of the top 10 will continue when he knocks out Rhodes in the 1st round of this fight.
UFC Fight Night 58 Predictions: Undercard
Marcos Rogério de Lima vs. Igor Pokrajac
This will be Pokrajac’s last fight in the octagon. He has been on a down trend as of late and do not that think that will change when he fights a fighter who is younger, just as fast, and just as strong. Lima picks up his second UFC win in this fight.
Darren Elkins vs. Hacran Dias
Dias has already been shown to lose to better wrestlers as is evident by his losses to Lamas and Lentz fights. He is now facing one of the better wrestlers and grinders in the decision which means that he will be ready for his third loss in a row.
