For my articles I usually only ask the pros about the top two billed fights of the event. This Saturday nights UFC 214 is so stacked, I had to get opinions for the top 4 fights. This will be the first of two articles revealing who some of the top fighters and coaches in The UFC believe will win.
In the second fight of the main card, “Ruthless” Robbie Lawler will take on Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in a fight that has been tied to events going all the way back to UFC 205 in November of last year. This welterweight showdown has had MMA enthusiasts going nuts and it looks like it will finally happen this weekend. With both fighters coming in off of a loss, expect fireworks as neither man is known for making a habit of losing.
In the third fight of the main card, Cris Cyborg will face off against Tonya Evinger. Originally it seemed Cyborg would face Germaine de Randamie for the newly minted 145 pound title. However, GDR refused to fight Cyborg and vacated her title. So then we had Cyborg VS Megan Anderson for the vacant title. Anderson then pulled out and Invicta 135 pound champ Tonya Evinger was thrust into the fight. It seems like The UFC at this point was looking for someone for Cyborg to be showcased against.
My only prediction for these fights, is I don't believe either will go the distance. I see both fights being over by the end of the second round. With that being said, lets see who the pros are picking here.
