By Eric Jacinto, Matt Koontz and Mike Whitstone
One of the biggest PPVs in UFC history is about to take place and the main event is the reason for this. Khabib and McGregor’s rivalry and hate is well known and documented. The fight is for more than just the lightweight belt. The rest of the card is absolutely stacked, and we will be treated to a great night as fight fans. Most people are getting caught up in just the McGregor and Khabib hype, but this card is no joke. Mike did a phenomenal job with his picks so I myself (Matt) will only be putting my differences in picks. If I have a different winner, I will write a small analysis on why.
I myself (Eric) will only be putting my predictions (not the early Prelims as I'm doing this little after 6:30pm ET) as Matt and Mike did an excellent job on their breakdown/analysis of all the fights on this great card. I'm so looking forward this fight and have been for for awhile. As Matt said it's not just about McGregor vs Khabib, you have another Lightweight bout that's pretty good in the Co-Main event as Tony Ferguson battles the former UFC Lightweight champion, Anthony "Showtime" Pettis.
