Gabe Killian’s 10 UFC Predictions for 2015

Khabib NurmagomedovWe had a very exciting year of fights behind us in 2014. I went over my favorite submissions, knockouts and fights here, here and here. Now with that in the past, it’s time to look forward. I decided to make some UFC predictions for 2015. Feel free to agree or disagree, or even provide some of your own in the comment section below. Here they are… 1.) Khabib Nurmagomedov becomes UFC Lightweight Champion. 2.) Hendry Cejudo makes weight at 125 pounds, wins a couple of fights and gets a title shot. 3.) CM Punk fights an unknown opponent he is the betting favorite over and he wins. 4.) Ben Saunders makes a Robbie Lawler-esque comeback in the UFC’s welterweight division and gets his name mentioned in title talks. 5.) Bantamweights Michael McDonald and Johnny Eduardo return to action, perhaps against each other. 6.) Hector Lombard fights for the title, becomes new UFC Welterweight Champion. 7.) Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler both see a slight fall in the rankings. 8.) Conor McGregor defeats Dennis Siver, then Jose Aldo, and then makes a successful title defense. 9.) Nick Diaz has rematches with both Carlos Condit and Robbie Lawler. Maybe this is more of a wish than a prediction. 10.) Ronda Rousey defeats Cat Zingano, Holly Holm, Bethe Correia and any other opponents to remain undefeated and continue her dominance.
