UFC 288 Prelims Predictions

The UFC kicks off the month of May with a star-studded Pay-Per-View card featuring a stacked fourteen-bout fight card from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

The Bantamweight Championship is on the line in the main event as reigning champion Aljamain Sterling looks to make his third title defense against the man who never lost the strap, Henry Cejudo, returning from a three-year layoff. In the co-main event, Welterweights gamers step up on short notice as Gilbert Burns faces off with Belal Muhammad in a match confirmed to determine the next challenger for the Welterweight throne.

Drew Dober and Matt Frrevola take center stage in the featured prelim in a guaranteed classic, while prospects like Ikram Aliskerov and Rafael Estevam look to make successful UFC debuts off Contender Series signings.
