UFC Vegas 72 Prelims Predictions

The UFC returns for a second straight week to the Apex facility in Las Vegas, Nevada for a twelve-bout Fight Night card.

In the main event, top-ten Bantamweights Song Yadong and Ricky Simon will meet in a five-round affair while Caio Borralho and Michal Oleksiejczuk meet in the Middleweight co-main. Elsewhere on the card, undefeated prospects like Waldo Cortes-Acosta and Josh Quinlan are looking to keep their undefeated records intact against a step up in competition.

The prelims portion of the card features five fights with Heavyweights Martin Buday and Jake Collier squaring off in the prelim headliner. Also of note, LFA standout Marcus McGhee steps in on just three days’ notice to take on Journey Newson.
