We have a Heavyweight showdown to open the main card, as Serghei “Polar Bear” Spivak takes on Greg “The Prince of War” Hardy. Coming off a devastating knockout defeat, in which halted a three-fight win streak, Spivak will look to rebound in short order. No longer ranked in the top fifteen, Spivak will try to use Hardy as a springboard back into the rankings. Meanwhile, Hardy comes into this contest on the ropes. A loser of two straight by knockout, Hardy’s tenure in the UFC could come down to this fight. Previous to the losing streak, Hardy had won two fights in a row.

As for a prediction, I have Hardy winning. While this prediction can completely backfire due to Hardy’s limited gas tank and grappling, Spivak just seems susceptible to being knocked out on the feet. The way Spivak wins, is by implementing his wrestling and grappling. Something which I suspect he will go straight for. However, Hardy has shown to have good takedown defense and as long as it holds up, it’s only a matter of time before he cracks Spivak on the feet. So with that said, I predict that Hardy will win via knockout.
