Fabricio Werdum looks to work his way back to the UFC Heavyweight Championship

UFC Fight Night 121 is here and the show will go forward; headlined by Fabricio Werdum, despite his potential legal troubles outside the Octagon.

All recent debacles aside, Werdum is the star of this show Down Under and will compete against veteran grinder Marcin Tybura. Besides, Aussie star Bec Rawlings competes in the evening’s co-main event opposite Jessy Rose-Clark.

Furthermore, the FOX Sports 1 card features several other intriguing matchups as well. So, without further ado, here are the predictions and complete preview for UFC Fight Night: Werdum vs Tybura:


Main Card (FOX Sports 1)

#1 Fabricio Werdum vs Marcin Tybura

Fabricio Werdum was involved in a highly-publicized street altercation with Brazil’s public enemy number-1 Colby Covington.

Regardless, lest Werdum is distracted from the task at hand, this is his fight to lose. The Brazilian former UFC Heavyweight Champion is a better striker and grappler than Tybura, and although the latter could catch him at boxing range, Werdum should secure the takedown and submit ‘Tybur’.

Prediction: Fabricio Werdum def. Marcin Tybura via Submission


#2 Bec Rawlings vs Jessy Rose-Clark

Bec Rawlings is a vastly better fighter than what we’ve seen from her in the UFC thus far. Regardless, she’s the more well-rounded MMA fighter in this matchup.

One can expect Bec to impose her gameplan against Jessy right from the get-go, and outpoint her via her trademark high-volume striking. Additionally, the Aussie could also take the latter to the ground and threaten with submissions; not likely to finish but enough to impress the judges nonetheless.

Prediction: Bec Rawlings def. Jessy Rose-Clark via Decision


#3 Tim Means vs Belal Muhammad

Tim Means is eerily similar to a former opponent of his ergo Matt Brown.

Means has great Muay Thai and decent grappling, but Muhammad has an iron chin and wild looping strikes that really bring an unpredictability factor to all his fights. However, one can expect Means to keep Muhammad at bay; before eventually securing the clinch, and working the knees and elbows for the finish.

Prediction: Tim Means def. Belal Muhammad via TKO
