Tonight sees UFC Fight Night 54 taking place in Nova Scotia, Canada. Rory MacDonald headlines as he is from Canada, as this fight is sure to decide who the next top contenders or title shot holders are.
With two events on the same night, and both free TV fight cards, there is a lot for MMA fans tonight. I have detailed a brief breakdown of the top fights and my UFC Fight Night MacDonald vs Saffiedine Predictions.
My UFC Fight Night MacDonald vs Saffiedine Predictions are as follows:
Rory MacDonald vs Tarec Saffiedine
MacDonald fell short of a title shot when he lost to Lawler, but he is never far away with his overall UFC record being so good. Saffiedine is another fighter with a solid rating, but has been very inconsistent due to injury over the last year or so. Being on home soil and much more active I think MacDonald can find a way to win this one.
Raphael Assuncao vs Brian Caraway
This is an interesting match as these two fighters are near the top contender slots. Both very durable with many ways to win, I think this will be an action packed match. Assuncao is on a 6 fight win streak, which is nearly unheard of in the top flight MMA ranks. But I think Caraway will rise to the occasion and pull off a slight upset.
Chad Laprise vs Yosdenis Cedeno
Laprise is an unbeaten graduate of the TUF program, Cedeno is not the toughest opponent he has ever faced, so if he brings his A game this should be a no brainier. But we all know how unpredictable MMA can be, so don’t be surprised by either result.
