The UFC returns to Las Vegas with 2 titles on the line. Mighty Mouse will be looking to break Anderson Silva’s Title Defense record with a win over Ray Borg and Ferguson and Lee will battle for gold. Lots of action this Saturday live on PPV.
At MMACS, we are currently 18-5 (78%) on fights we Unanimously agree on. We all believe that Mighty Mouse is breaking the record with this title defense. Check out below to see who else we believe will get the victory.
Kenneth (78-55): Ferguson, DJ, Werdum, Dariush, Duquesnoy
Paul (71-57): Lee, DJ, Lewis, Dariush, Duquesnoy
Jake (73-60): Ferguson, DJ, Lewis, Dunham, Duquesnoy
Kieran (73-60): Ferguson, DJ, Werdum, Dariush, Duquesnoy
Jonathan (73-60): Lee, DJ, Werdum, Dariush, Stamman
Dinesh (63-58): Ferguson, DJ, Werdum, Dariush, Duquesnoy
Will (67-66): Lee, DJ, Werdum, Dariush, Duquesnoy
Tony Ferguson (4) vs. Kevin Lee (3)
In the Main-Event, one of these men will leave as the Interim Lightweight Champion. Ferguson enters this fight as one of the most dangerous Lightweights on the roster currently. He is currently riding a 9-fight win streak while only going the distance in 3 of those fights. Kevin Lee has also been impressive, as he is currently the proud owner of a 5-fight win streak with only one of those fights going the distance.
Tony Ferguson starts off extremely aggressive, and has been able to outpace his opponents in the past. He even beat Rafael Dos Anjos up in a 5 Round fight. Kevin Lee is a great Lightweight, but this just isn’t his time. Ferguson has many angles where he can attack and finish from. After a couple rounds, look for Tony to welcome Kevin Lee to Snap Down City as Ferguson adds another choke to his resume. And the New UFC Interim Lightweight Champion.

Demetrious Johnson (7) vs. Ray Borg (0)
Does anyone besides Ray Borg believe that Borg has a chance? Mighty Mouse is such a complete fighter, and can literally finish the fight however he pleases. Johnson is a better wrestler, striker, and submission artist than Borg.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Mighty Mouse will leave the Octagon with the Flyweight Championship and will be the new owner of the record for Most Title Defenses in the UFC with 11.
Demetrious Johnson via: 2nd Round Submission
Fabricio Werdum (5) vs. Derrick Lewis (2)
Lewis shocked many fans earlier this year when he announced that he was retiring after his loss to Mark Hunt. Werdum will certainly be no easy return to the UFC for Derrick Lewis. Either fighter can throw their name in title contention with an impressive win.
The main advantage Werdum has over Lewis is his high-level grappling credentials. Many people would even consider Werdum to be the best Jiu-Jitsu fighter in the Heavyweight division. Lewis was taken down multiple times by Roy Nelson, and that is something Werdum may try and expose in Lewis’s game. Finishing Lewis will be very difficult, especially in a 3 Round fight as he is one of the more durable fighters. Fabricio Werdum should be able to do enough throughout the fight to get the victory.
Fabricio Werdum via: Unanimous Decision
Beneil Dariush (6) vs. Evan Dunham (1)
Evan Dunham is on one of the more impressive win streaks of his career. He’s been in the UFC for a long time, and he’s finally starting to get the recognition that he deserves. It’s just a shame that he got matched up with the always dangerous Beneil Dariush. After being on the wrong end of a Flying Knee in his last fight, many expect an impressive outing out of Dariush.
Dunham’s main chance of winning this fight will be to make it ugly and rely on his wrestling. Dariush has great takedown defense, and will likely keep the fight standing where he’ll land with devastating shots. After 3 rounds, there will be no question who the winner is. Dariush gets back on the winning track with a Unanimous Decision.

Tom Duquesnoy (6) vs. Cody Stamann (1)
This one is going to be an outright slugfest. Both fighters enter this fight with a record of 15-1 and both recently had successful UFC debut. Now who’s going to be knocked back while the other climbs the rankings?
Duquesnoy has been on MMA fan radars for quite some time. His style will likely cause him to get KO’d at some point in his career, but that won’t happen this time. With many flashy strikes, look for Duquesnoy to make quick work of Cody Stamann.
Tom Duquesnoy via: 2nd Round TKO
