Last year, we provided 10 quirky MMA forecasts for 2020. Yes, not everything happened, mainly due to the COVID-19 pandemic (and some were ridiculous).I reviewed them hereBut now we make 10 MMA forecasts in 2021!

MMA forecast

1 – Conor McGregor became lightweight champion in January but lost in the next battle

Unless you live under a rock, the first PPV in 2021 UFC 257.. It is finding this Conor McGregor And Dustin Poirier.. You will also know that former champion, Habib Nurmagomedov Having retired in early 2020, the belt is ready to go. The battle could eventually take place on a £ 155 belt.

The prediction is that McGregor will beat the “diamond” but hit the rest. 155 lbs shark tank.. Justin Gaethje Set an unrealistic pace that McGregor had previously struggled with. Charles Oliveira Without a doubt, it has the smoothest ground game throughout the sport. This is another area that McGregor had previously struggled with. Finally, Michael chandler I prefer a heavy wrestling approach, but this can also cause champion problems. These are just a few of the stacked £ 155 division people who were able to achieve the title shot.

2 – Loses to Jon Jones after Stipe Miocic defeats Francis Ngannou again

This is similar to one of last year’s forecasts. Steepemioch Defeat Francis Ngannou In a rematch.However, this time there is an additional warning Jon Jones.. Miocic probably has a Ngannou number. Yes, the “Predator” was very raw, exposed and dominated when the man first met, but Miocchi will probably do enough to do the same again. After defeating Ngannou (probably April / May time), Jon Jones gets the next shot at Miocchi.

Jones has long been a £ 205 champion and has a big look at the heavyweight division. He is arguably one of the best MMA fighters ever, holding a 26-1 record, one of whom is a suspicious DQ. He defeated Miocchi and solidified himself as one of the best.

3 – All Bellator champions will remain champions until 2022

Bellator Certainly not famous for its depth. Unless someone retires, all champions have the potential to become champions in 2022. They are really the best in their sector and there is no real competition on the horizon.One of the champions who can struggle Vadim Nemkov Light heavyweight. Many new talents have been added to the Bellator 205lbs division, and any of these individuals can cause Nemkov’s problems. Also, AJ McKee He was competing for the title in 2021 and could easily get a W.

4 – Donald Cerrone spends his career

Whenever this happens, tears are shed. One of the most famous game fighters in the whole sport, Donald Cerrone Is approaching retirement and will see him put on gloves in 2021. Since May 2019, Serone has been unable to win, including four consecutive defeats, and has begun to slow down. At the age of 37, he is unlikely to win another title at £ 155 or £ 170, which means he doesn’t have much left. Give him a fight that he can win and retire him from the happy and wealthy.

5 – Alexander Volkanovski makes three defenses for his title

Featherweight champion, Alexander Volkanovski The UFC has proven to be one of the best £ 145 I’ve ever seen.He defeated two featherweight goats Jose Aldo And Max Holloway And his maximum testing hasn’t been done yet. Brian Ortega It looks like the Australian: He will probably defeat the decision on T-City.

After that, probably the third match with Hollowway, Calvin Kattar Or even in the fight against up-and-coming Zabit Magomedsharipov.. The most difficult of these is probably the fight against Qatar. Qatar’s length, combined with his boxing abilities, makes him a 145-pound tricky opponent for everyone. Magomedsharipov was previously protected by not having to play five rounds in the UFC. This will be published when he achieves the title shot.

6 – Sean O’Malley rematched Marlon Vera and won, but lost on his next expedition to Rob Font in the main event.

One of the biggest disappointments in 2020 is Sean O’Mary Handled his loss Marlon Vera.. Yes, he seems to have been injured, but it was a direct result of a foot attack from “Chito”. They rematched in early 2021 and O’Malley won a decisive victory.O’Malley continues to face Rob font At the main event of Fight Night, only another L will come out.

So far, O’Malley is not fighting the elite striker.Yes, he got a knockout of the candidate’s victory this year Eddie WinelandBut apart from that, he was poor in 2020. Rob Font is an amazing striker with dangerous ground games. He easily defeated O’Malley, perhaps even finishing “Sugar” before winning the title shot in late 2021 or early 2022.

7 – Dana White is faithful to his words and releases several celebrities, including:

We know that Dana White We plan to release up to 60 UFC stars this year. In this MMA prediction, the names include: Jacare Souza (5 defeats in the last 7 battles), Luke Rockhold (3 losses in the last 4 battles), Greg Hardy (UFC Career Shuraba), Felice herrig (0-3 in her last three battles, no wins since 2017), Jeremy Stephens (0-4 in his last four battles) And Robbie Lawler (Without victory since 2017 and his last six 1-5).

8 – James Gallagher, Valerie Releda and Dillon Danis continue the knockover battle

Three of Bellator’s future stars could all compete in 2021, but they could continue to win.You can’t blame Scott Coker I want to protect the stars of the future, but that doesn’t always lead to interesting battles. James Gallagher, Valerie Releda And Dillon Danis Perhaps once or twice in 2021, you will compete with an opponent who is expected to be defeated.

Loureda and Danis are still in the early stages of their careers, so it’s understandable that there’s an “easy” battle going on, but this will continue until 2021. You can expect Bellator not to give these fighters “too easy” opponents. But at least make the fight competitive.

9 – Israel Adesanya defeats Jan Blawowic slightly, drops to £ 185 and rematches with Robert Whittaker

Not confirmed, but Israel Adesanya And Jan Blawowic We will face off for the light heavyweight championship in March. The “Last Style Bender” beat four of the top ten at 185 pounds, and weight gain is the logical next move. Blawic is 8 to 1 in the last nine battles, including five finishes. Blawic has a big advantage in size compared to Adesanya, but the blow of a middleweight champion may be too big for a Polish champion.

After winning the £ 205 belt, Adesanya drops down and rematches Robert Whittaker..Whitaker loses 2-0 after losing belt Darren Till Before dominate Jared Cannonier..

10 – Leon Edwards signs Bellator and shares card headings with brother Fabian

Leon Edwards Cruelly underestimated by the majority. Yes, he doesn’t fight very often. He doesn’t “shake the mic” as much as others. He is not a finisher. However, his ability cannot be denied. He is on an eight-round winning run, including two in the main event slot.He hasn’t been competing since 2019, but neither Nate diaz And he’s still a fan favorite … Edwards is set to face Khamzat Chimaev (At some point, the battle was canceled twice). The prediction here is that Edwards will send Chimaev to school, leave the UFC, and sign Bellator.

Leon Edwards’ younger brother, Fabian Edwards I’ve been impressed so far by competing in the middle weight for Bellator. The Edwards brothers from Birmingham, England, will jointly announce the Bellator card heading towards the end of 2021.

If any of these predictions come true, we will have an exciting 2021. Lock to MMA Sucka to keep all MMA up-to-date and see if these MMA predictions come true.
