UFC Fight Night 46: McGregor vs Brandao Predictions- Kamikaze Overdrive MMA
The return is upon us. Conor McGregor steps back into the Octagon for the first time in a year and will do so fighting at home in Dublin, Ireland. Opposing McGregor was originally scheduled to be surging UFC veteran Cole Miller, but Miller was forced to withdraw and was replaced by Ultimate Fighter winner Diego Brandao. Brandao is a lethal fighter both on the mat and the feet, easily representing the most dangerous challenge to the assent of Ireland’s fighting son up the Featherweight rankings. Can Brandao derail the hype train or is he just another wrung on the ladder to the top for the Irishman.
Also on the main card, undefeated Icelandic fighter Gunnar Nelson looks for his fourth UFC win when he meets long time veteran Zak Cummings. Nelson has long be lauded as the next big thing at Welterweight, but Cummings is fresh off one upset win and has his eyes set on another. Nelson could be on the cusp of the divisional top 10, but Cummings has aspirations of his own.
The next Flyweight title contender could also be crowned on Saturday, when Brad Pickett meets former #1 ranked 125er Ian McCall. Pickett owns a 2010 victory over Flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson from their WEC days and could campaign for a title shot with a second win in his new division. McCall was part of the 4 man tournament to crown the first divisional champion and after battling to a very competitive draw with Mighty Mouse he lost the follow-up meeting in disappointing fashion. Both men want a return date with the champ, but only one will get their hand raised on this night.
