UFC Vegas 32 Predictions

Last weekend’s UFC Vegas 31 was a very profitable event for this column, as I went 9-1. It’s about time to get on a proper heater once more, so let’s get some winners with my UFC Vegas 32 predictions column. This is a pretty stacked card that I have some juicy dogs for. So let’s get it on, cmon!

UFC Vegas 32 Predictions

All odds courtesy of PointsBet

Cory Sandhagen (-195) vs T.J. Dillashaw

UFC Vegas 32 Predictions

That lovable scamp T.J. Dillashaw returns after two and a half years on the sidelines after popping for EPO. Will the former champ look like his former self, or at 35-years-old and off “the sauce”, will be he a shell of himself? I’m guessing the latter, and I’m riding Cory Sandhagen in this one. He’s the bigger, younger man of the two and the more active striker. But I’m not a fan of this line.

Aspen Ladd (-200) vs Macy Chiasson

Two up-and-comers in the women’s bantamweight division clash in our co-main event. I’m going with Aspen Ladd to beat the much bigger Macy Chiasson. Ladd should be better no matter where this fight takes place, but especially so on the ground, where she will probably decide to take the fight.

Kyler Phillips (-280) vs Rualian Paiva

Rualian Paiva is taking this fight on short notice, which is strike number one. Plus it is up a weight class at bantamweight rather than his normal weight, flyweight. Strike two. And Kyler Phillips is a better striker and grappler. Three strikes, he’s out. Phillips wins.

Darren Elkins (+128) vs Darrick Minner

I’m not just taking Darren Elkins because of his totally rad tattoo. No, I like ‘The Damage’ stylistically in this matchup against Darrick Minner, who relies on submissions to win, which will be hard to pull off on Elkins. Plus, Elkins has sneaky submissions of his own, and Minner is prone to getting tapped out.

Miranda Maverick (-150) vs Maycee Barber

Another young prospect battle in the women’s division, this one at flyweight. Miranda ‘Fear The’ Maverick is a fearsome grappler, which I think is where she’ll dictate this fight takes place. Which just so happens to be where Maycee Barber is the worst. This is my lock pick of the week.

Jordan Williams (-185) vs Mickey Gall

While the previous fight might be a grappling affair, Jordan Williams will surely try to keep this one a striking battle. While Mickey Gall has very good grappling, his stand-up has never quite caught up to it. Look for Williams to piece him up on the feet.

Brendan Allen (-112) vs Punahele Soriano

UFC Vegas 32 Predictions

A pick ’em on the board, and the only fight this week my MMA Gambling Podcast cohost and myself differ on. But I’m liking Brendan Allen’s size advantage and grappling skills in this matchup, but it’s a tough one to call, as the betting line hints at.

Nassourdine Imavov (+125) vs Ian Heinisch

I promised you some juicy underdogs, and have only delivered one thus far, so here you go – Nassourdine Imavov at +125. He’s way bigger and younger than Ian Heinisch and is the superior grappler.

Randy Costa (+175) vs Adrian Yanez

And here’s another one for you – Randy Costa at +175. Both he and Adrian Yanez possess a lot of power for bantamweight, but if this one turns into a brawl (which both men expect it to be), Costa is at an advantage.

Julio Arce (-200) vs Andre Ewell

Back to the chalk with Julio Arce. He’s been inconsistent and has been out of action since 2019, but I like his grappling here and think he’ll handle Andre Ewell (as do the bookmakers).

Sijara Eubanks (-350) vs Elise Reed

Elise Reed only has four pro fights under her belt and she’ll be making her UFC debut here on short notice. Plus Sijara Eubanks has a size advantage on her, so ‘SarJ’ is the pick.

Diana Belbita (-105) vs Hannah Goldy

Diana Belbita is WAY bigger than Hannah Goldy (try seven inches of reach), and dangerous in the clinch, making her the pick in the curtain jerker.
