ufc-203-card-urijah-faber-vs-jimmie-rivera

Urijan Faber by 2nd round submission – Jimmie Rivera might be on an 18 fight winning run but he’s never fought anyone at the level of Urijah. Urijah at 37 maybe edging towards the end of his career but we don’t see him losing this one.

CM Punk vs. Mickey Gall (Welterweight)

CM Punk by Decision – CM Punk is of course best known as the former WWE Champion and has no MMA experience, he’s also a 4-1 underdog. However Mickey Gall is still inexperienced and has only 2 pro fights. We see Punk shocking many by winning this one, but it will be close.

Fabricio Werdum vs. Travis Brown (Heavyweight)

Fabricio Werdum vs. Travis Brown UFC 203

Werdum by 1st Round Submission – Former Champion Werdum is looking to bounce back and maybe earn a title fight by winning this fight. He beat Brown a couple of years ago by decision by we see this one finishing early with it starting on the feet and ending on the ground.

Stipe Miocic (C) vs. Alistair Overeem (Heavyweight Championship)

Stipe Miocic vs. Alistair Overeem Heavyweight Championship

Miocic by 2nd Round TKO – This is the first title defence for Miocic and in his hometown of Cleveland. He’s shown in the past that he’s a smart fighter who known when to time his attacks. Overeem is a powerful dutch kickboxer who is dangerous early on but lacks conditioning and tries easily. We see a cagey 1st round and Miocic finishing it midway into the second.
