UFC Vegas 80 ‘Dawson Vs. Green’ + Weekly MMA Report

There was no UFC last week, but we’ve seen an amazing Cage Warriors card. In one of the best battles in the history of the sport, Luke Riley recovered after taking a beating and defeated Alexander Loof with a third-round stoppage. In the main event of the evening, Tobias Harila lost to James Hendin due to a broken arm.

UFC Vegas 80 Announcement

The upcoming UFC week looks entertaining, and the promotion returns to the UFC Apex Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The main event brings the battle between control specialist Grant Dawson and a fighter with one of the most unusual stances in the history of the sport, Bobby Green.

Grant Dawson took the back of his recent opponent and controlled him via body triangle for three rounds, which led him to a decision win. He is a ground fighter with solid striking, and he’ll try to keep the fight on the canvas.

Bobby Green is coming fresh from a submission win against Tony Ferguson, but he has always had problems with good wrestlers. If Dawson takes him down, this might be the end of the road for the dangerous entertaining striker.

Prediction: Dawson to win

The co-main looks very interesting too – dangerous wrestler Joe Pyfer meets one-punch knockout artist Abdul-Razak Alhassan. Pyfer is way better on the ground, but “Judo Thunder” is known for powerful kicks and punches. Joe has better cardio, so he should play smart to win the bout.

Prediction: the fight will not go the distance

Usman Nurmagomedov will try to defend his lightweight title against dangerous ground game specialist Brent Primus. Usman is a top-notch striker with great punches, kicks, and takedown defense, so he shouldn’t have a hard time defending the throne this time.

Prediction: Usman to win

The co-main brings the clash between the two former UFC stars –former champion Cris Cyborg and legendary contender Cat Zingano. Cat might have a chance if she drags the bout to the ground, but Cyborg is known for a very aggressive approach and powerful barrages of punches. The Brazilian gets the advantage here.

Prediction: Cyborg to win
