UFC FLYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT - Demetrious Johnson (17-2-1) vs. John Moraga (13-1)

This should be another action-packed flyweight championship bout that will go 25 minutes. In the end, I like Johnson to retain his title. He has the speed, wrestling and experience edge over Moraga. The challenger always has a puncher’s chance, but it will be awfully tough to cleanly hit a moving target like Johnson. UFC FREE PICK – Demetrious Johnson -500

UFC WELTERWEIGHT BOUTRory MacDonald (14-1) and Jake Ellenberger (29-6)

This fight has the most intrigue of the card. It is two top 5 welterweights squaring off and both men are great on their feet and have the strength to out-wrestle the other. The difference in this one will be MacDonald’s technique. I think he is the crisper and smarter striker of the two and I think he has the ability to out-grabble Ellenberger when Jake looks to take the fight to the ground. MacDonald may be the top welterweight in the UFC. UFC FREE PICK – Rory MacDonald -240
