UFC's pay per payout is a pair of multi-expected title conflicts in 2018.
Featuring hipster Max Holloway and number 1 contender Brian Ortega on Saturday at the UFC 231 main event, after completing their first session mysteriously shrouded by Holloway's medical issues, he will complete his unfinished business. Holloway 100 percent, the first fight in a year? Will it be against the unbeaten Ortega, which is the finishing machine in UFC? Could this be the beginning of a budding competition between two warriors at the start of their athletic careers?
This last question could also be asked about the joint activity that struggled with Valentina Shevchenko, the female fly weight figure 1 in the former haystack champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk for a previous 125-pound name. Since this title has been shown as a trophy for its winner, it has been the subject of much scrutiny. Ultimate Fighter 26It turned out to be Nicco Montano. Montano could not defend his title for various reasons; he defended a planned title against Shevchenko in September, especially after he was hospitalized with weight loss problems. An impressive winner of Jedrzejczyk or Shevchenko will bring much-needed stability to division.
In the other mother-card action, Gunnar Nelson competes for the first time in a 500-day period after shooting Alex Oliveira for the first time. Hakeem Dawodu and Kyle Bochniak are attacking. Thiago Santos, the next test for lightweight weight.

Max Holloway and Brian Ortega
Time to crown the king with a new feather weight.
Max Holloway has remained unbeatable over the past five years, but don't make a mistake with the uneattable. If there is one, some of the di blessed id is such a lover among the constants, a tendency to be as good as it does. The defending champion includes the spirit of Hawaiian fighting and rivals who have faded before the last 12 voyages.
Get into Brian Ortega.
Di T-City savun showed itself vulnerable during the UFC study; However, thanks to his uncanny ability to catch third-degree finishes, he was able to win at least a few times from the jaws of defeat. This wasn't even necessary in his last battle because he toured the former UFC champion Frankie Edgar (regarded as a superior striker) in a round.
Making mistakes can stop successfully with Ortega Holloway. The student of Gracie jiu-jitsu will certainly have an advantage in this area, but if he descends on him, he will not even fall outside his element in the face of Holloway's striking ammunition.
I was lying if I said that Holloway's recent health problems didn't affect my choice here. In the undisputed, most competitive creepy fight in the history of MMA, the slightest crack can be the slightest crackdown that could lead to the collapse of a warrior, and in this case, to dismiss Holloway entering Octagon with questions about how to act after a difficult year.
And that doesn't mean that Ortega will win only because of Holloway's decline. Even with full force, Holloway was in danger of falling into a challenger on his own in the same undefeated aura as always. Ortega will be the challenger and champion after the UFC 231.
Valentina Shevchenko and Joanna Jedrzejczyk
Controversially, it seems silly to bet against the greatest female fighters of all time, but what else can you do if you are facing a competitor who has proven to be a better striker in three different situations?
Their muay thai days are a lifetime for Valentina Shevchenko and Joanna Jedrzejczyk, and although Jedrzejczyk has established itself as a force in MMA, it is fair to use Shevchenko as a point of reference over Jedrzejczyk. Saturday's joint event is likely to be a stand-up event, which means the outcome may be familiar.
Shevchenko will have a small advantage in the fight night, and although some try to sell it against the speed of Shevchenko's Jedrzejcyk, there is no hooligan in the ol Bullet Sh when it comes to swiftness. The striking strike seemed to be more dynamic when Jedrzejczyk was playing as a haystack queen, but only because Shevchenko tends to show his mopping skills, just as Priscila Cachoeira and Julianna Pena won in the win.
This gives Shevchenko another way to win the fight, although Jedrzejczyk's dismissal and the deflected defense are always perfect. In fact, this will be essentially a standing war that is more rational than mad, Shevchenko is constantly beating Jedrzejczyk to claim the title of the female fly weight of UFC.
Alex Oliveira and Gunnar Nelson
MMA is a difficult thing to find, but Alex “Cowboy, Oliveira seems to have had no problems in the last few fights. A multi-faceted Brazilian fighting an infectious Joie de Vivre This will be the opposite of Gunnar Nelson, a pistol at night. Oliveira is the happiest when she works, and while she hired six victories in her last seven battles (except when the competition was off), the injuries limited Nelson's ability to fight only three battles since December 2015.
Nelson is a talented fighter who can perform an extraordinary karate style with his superior ground play. He only lost the warriors (or even the eye) who lost his head, so it would be interesting to see if Oliveira would decide to resist his jiu-jitsu skills. Oliveira has a good send ability, but Nelson is an excellent control and position fighter on the mat.
However, the rhythm should be taken into consideration and after such a long work, you have to compete with a high-output fighter like Oliveira after a long order for everyone. Nelson should be able to avoid adding Oliveira to the impressive finishing lists, but Oliveira's active activity should still be enough to win the judges.
Hakeem Dawodu and Kyle Bochniak
Hakeem Dawodu's first UFC win in July had a number of talents that attracted him to the next big thing to come out of the MMA scene in Canada. This is the type of hype Kyle Bochniak has previously dealt with.
Tı Collision is almost twice in UFC 223 in the two battles Magomedsharipov party opened in Brooklyn for the opening party. For two rounds, Magomedsharipov mostly made Bochniak an unanimous decision-making. Fighting with Bochniak continued to move forward until Magomedsharipov forced him to trade with wild changes. Bochniak & # 39; s do the best he can do, a technically superior rival, to lose their mind and to persuade to throw with him.
I think you can do this against Dawodu. The Calgary native still continues to show its true potential in Octagon, but if it is comfortable, Dawodu can be absolutely deadly, with a well-timed counter-punch or a sudden, fast combination. At the same time, he is adept at using leg beats, which is the perfect weapon to make a fighter to think twice about an approach to Bochniak.
If Bochniak can move faster than usual and maintain pressure, it does the nerve-wracking things for Dawodu, and has no other way than to open fire at less than ideal conditions. This is a candidate for the Night Challenge to add to the scorecard of Bochniak.
Jimi Manuwa and Thiago Santos
Thursday's media screams Jimi Manuwa said he did not expect to make a difference here, as the middle size transplant has recently taken over Thiago Santos. In fact, this could prove to be the fall of the British slugger.
When it comes to speeding up, it was a terror in 185 liras because için Marreta zaman was a match and always striking. Add trends for the right spinning strokes, and this could be one of the toughest matches Manuwa has ever faced. He said, he's always been a smart stand-up fighter, so it's not just Santos going into everything he threw at him.
Manuwa, though out of the prime, is only 38 years old, just four years older than Santos, so it doesn't seem to match a spring chicken. Athletics should be quite equal and Santos cannot style as Manuwa is against slower medium weights.
This should either end up with an early KO or turn into a fan-friendly slimming area, and at some point I'm moving towards Manuwa to capture Santos' off-guard and I'm sorry.
