The main event will feature one of the most anticipated rematches in Women’s MMA history as Julianna Pena will defend her bantamweight title against Amanda Nunes.
In the co-main event, Brandon Moreno will take on Kai Kara-France for the temporary 125-pound flyweight title.
Here, you will know UFC 277 Picks and Prediction.
UFC 277 Main Event: Julianna Pena vs. Amanda Nunes Prediction:
Peña has a tremendous combination of skills and strategies— great wrestling with bold confidence. That is what brought her the title. However, Amanda Nunes AKA ‘The Lioness’ seems to roar louder in the main event.
Being a better grappler, it was arguably nothing but misfortune for Nunes at UFC 269. Nunes also took the loss as a valuable learning experience and is expected to apply that on Sunday. Undisputedly, the UFC fans are going to enjoy an exciting and balanced battle. Both of them will give everything possible while Nunes seems to appear more aggressive than ever to snatch the title from the ‘Venezuelan Vixen’.
Co-Main Event: Brandon Moreno vs. Kai Kara-France Prediction:
The co-main event of Kai Kara-France facing Brandon Moreno is going to be another blast for sure. Both men have improved more than ever. However, Moreno stands on the side of advantage. His aggression and diversity of attacks make it tougher for any opponent to deal with.
Meanwhile, Kara-France has excellent timing on the feet and a heavy right hand. Based on all considerations, the experience might give an advantage to Moreno who has upheld the championship belt three times before.
UFC 277 Main cards Prediction:
Derrick Lewis vs. Sergei Pavlovic:
Derrick Lewis seems not to be able to beat high-level strikers anymore. Sergei Pavlovich got powerful hands and that works well enough on occasions. It’s undeniable that their ground-and-pound move Lewis is deadly. Only if the Russian finds the timing early, it may bring serious danger to Lewis. If so, then this would be the third knockout loss in the past four fights for Lewis.
Alexandre Pantoja (7) vs. Alex Perez (8):
Perez has fought for a UFC title while Pantoja already owns two wins over Moreno. Perez has fast hands and solid skills but if Pantoja comes up with his deadly jiu-jitsu, it may give him the ultimate advantage. Moreover, Perez is sensitive to submissions— being his weak zone while Pantoja never surrenders. We predict Pantoja to win via submission in the second round.
Magomed Ankalaev (7) vs. Anthony Smith (8)
With smart movements, Ankalaev is an aggressive counter-striker. Smith got big face-off experiences and it’s a big test for him. Ankalaev is on an eight-fight win streak and he will do anything to stop him. On the other hand, Ankalaev will try to continue it at any cost.
