Chris Pratt is a huge fan of mixed martial arts. Growing up, he dabbled in amateur wrestling as well. He was placed fifth in a high school state wrestling tournament while studying at Lake Stevens High School.
In a recently shared one-minute clip, Chris Pratt, with a face completely covered in fake blood, presumably for shooting purposes, shared his prediction for the fight. He picked Dustin Poirier over Conor McGregor and said he believes 'The Diamond' will be the bigger and better man at UFC 264.
"What's up Dana? You're probably asking yourself 'Chris, why do you have blood and what looks like sh*t allover your face?' Good question. Truth is, I went to the future, I saw the fight. God, it was bloody. And someone got their sh*t kicked out of them, and it all got on my face. Really got my money's worth. I am excited for this fight. It's gonna be a good one. I predict it is Poirier's night. I think he's got Conor's number. I think he's hungrier. I think he's gonna be the bigger man that night. Looking forward to respectable fighters. Thank for all you both have done for the sport, and to all other fighters of the night, God bless you, stay safe, and keep entertaining us fans. We love it. We love you. Thanks Dana," Chris Pratt said.

The talk of going to the 'future' is a reference to his latest movie, The Tomorrow War, currently available on Amazon Prime. In the film, Chris Pratt plays an army ranger named Dan Forester, who is among an elite group of soldiers and civilians who are sent to the future to fight an alien army.
