No acting here.
The beef is REAL between these two 🔥 #UFC245#MMA#mmastreams#mma#MMA2019#MMAfromToday#MMATwitter#MMAPositiveReviews#mmaticket#UsmanvsCovington#UsmanCovington pic.twitter.com/nupktws0zG
Kamaru Usman to unleash on Colby, Kamaru Usman to win by KO/TKO (6.00)
Usman’s domineering start to his UFC career must be something that plays on the mind of Colby. He’s 10-0 to date, beating what looked like an unstoppable Tyron Woodley to reign as welterweight champion.
Both fighters aren’t known for their ability to close out fights, nor are they known as knockout kings. So there is a distinct possibility this one will go all the way.
Usman came out recently saying, “If he’s tough enough, it might last 24 minutes..” “..I just don’t think he’s that tough.”
Colby has caused nothing but controversy so far in the UFC. But will that all come crashing down against the big Nigeran at UFC 245?
Take Usman to end this with a KO/TKO.
Max Holloway (1.55) vs Alexander Volkanovski (2.25)
The first championship fight on the card at UFC 245. Featherweight champion Max Holloway will defend his belt against the Australian contender Alexander Volkanovski.
Holloway last fought at UFC 240, where he managed to overcome Frankie Edgar by unanimous decision. “Blessed” has won his last 14 featherweight bouts and will be confident of overcoming the contender in this one.
Volkanovski has made a perfect start to his UFC career and sits at 7-0 outright. He’s recorded some decent wins along the way too, including Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes. He’s on a 17-fight win streak overall in his MMA career.
We feel Max’s experience and agility will be too much for Volkanovski on the night.
Max Holloway to win it.

Marlon Moraes (1.54) vs Jose Aldo (2.30)
The first of two fights that were added late to the card, the other being a fight between Petr Yan and UFC legend Urijah Faber.
Jose Aldo has fighting at featherweight for a long time, but this will be his first UFC fight at bantamweight. If he comes out on top in this one, he’ll be in with a title shot at Cejudo.
However, cutting weight for 33-year old Jose Aldo may be a bit of an ask. We all know the older you get the harder it is to cut, though we don’t doubt he’ll make it. It’s just a question of what that might do to his ability to perform in the octagon.
Moraes got off to a bad start to his UFC career losing on a split decision to Raphael Assuncao, but bounced back with a number of wins eventually avenging the loss to Assuncao, with a dominating win.
He is coming into this one off the back of a loss to Henry Cejudo, losing by TKO in the third round.
Marlon Moraes to defeat the legend who is Jose Aldo.
