UFC 241 Predictions
In the main event, Dan Cormier will look to continue his three-fight win streak by defeating Stipe Miocic for the second time in just over a year. Miocic had won his previous six fights before being knocked out by Cormier last year, so this rematch should be just as good the second time around. Sportsbooks have this fight pegged as a relatively even bout, with Cormier being a slight favorite. Miocic is a notoriously heavy-hitter, having ended 14 of his 18 wins by way of the knockout. We’ll go against the grain and pick the underdog Miocic to win this fight via knockout.
In what’s likely to be the co-main event, Nate Diaz is returning to the octagon for the first time in three years to take on Anthony Pettis in a welterweight matchup. Both fighters have a tremendous amount of experience, with 30 professional fights apiece, which makes this a very tricky matchup to predict. Sportsbooks have this fight listed as a pick ‘em at the moment, which means they see it as a 50/50 affair. Given the fact that Diaz hasn’t fought since his loss to Connor McGregor back in 2016, we’ll pick Pettis to win this bout as he’s coming off a performance of the night award for his knockout of Stephen Thompson back in late March.
