UFC Fight Nights 48 & 49 Predictions- Kamikaze Overdrive MMA

Scott Johnson

After an unplanned 3 week break from action the UFC serves up a double helping of Octagon action this Saturday. The action gets started early with UFC Fight Night 48 and is followed by UFC Fight Night 49 later in the day.

UFN 49 is Headlined by a Middleweight tilt between former Strikeforce Middleweight champion Cung Le and perennial contender Michael Bisping. Le appears content to simply wind down his career with high profile bouts, while the Brit still clings to title shot aspirations. The rest of the card is composed of lesser known competitors, but the co-main event offers up the most intriguing bout of the mornings action. In a battle of ranked opponents, Dong Hyun Kim battles former Strikeforce title challenger Tyron Woodley. Both have shown incredibly aggressive styles of late with dangerous finishing ability so there is a good chance that this fight wont be going the distance.

What UFN 48’s card lacks in higher profile bouts, UFN 49 makes up for in spades. The main event feature a battle of top ranked Lightweights as former UFC and WEC Champion Ben Henderson faces Rafael Dos Anjos. The co-main event pits young versus old as Jordan Mein meets Mike Pyle and just prior to that Thales Leites fights Francis Carmont in the Middleweight division. Five of the six men competing in the final 3 bouts of the night are ranked in the top 15 of their respective divisions, making this card a prime candidate to do some reshuffling amongst the division’s elite.
