Without a UFC event this weekend, we get to check into our crystal ball and have an early look at a few futures odds, especially the two title fights scheduled for UFC 220 (Jan. 20th, Boston). I am literally wearing my wizard hat now [editor’s note: he actually is] and I should be, because we are on a magical roster people! Last week, a couple of those gold underdogs from my Best Bets for UFC 219 cashed in. Thanks, Carla Esparza and Neil Magny!
If you are not enthusiastic about UFC 220, then you have no pulse. You’re literally dead and should be packed on ice. How can you not be stoked to see one of the most anticipated heavyweight championship fights in UFC history? No matter the outcome, history is going to be made.
Stipe Miocic will soon be defending his heavyweight crown from rising superstar Francis Ngannou and I am pretty sure someone will be looking up in the lights when it is all done and said.
Also on the card, Daniel Cormier will be defending his light-heavyweight title against hard-hitting Volkan Oezdemir. Could we see an upset and the crowning of a fresh light-heavyweight king? Or will Cormier once again show us why he is among the best to ever step foot in an Octagon?
