With 2021 being such a wacky year in the mixed martial arts world, we felt it was important to look back at the predictions that were made leading up to one of the most memorable years in the history of the sport.
In Part 1 of our two-part prediction extravaganza, MMA Fighting’s Mike Heck and Alexander K. Lee revisit some of the answers they got to listeners’ questions about what 2021 would bring. Topics include Conor McGregor’s activity for the year, whether or not Jon Jones fights Israel Adesanya, for the heavyweight title or not at all in 2021, the return of PFL success, the Bellator Championship status of Patricio Pitbull, Khamzat Chimaev, Nick Diaz and Nate Diaz competing, who will end the year as a UFC champion whether our bold predictions come true or not, and much more.
Additionally, we’ll need your help with Part 2: Our 2022 Prediction Extravagance Episode. Submit your “buy or sell” questions the same way you send your matchmaking thoughts to Mike or AK on Twitter. , Instagram or by email by Thursday, January 6, 2022 – and, please, be as creative as you want.
