Time for another UFC prediction event. If you want to take part for the first time, here’s the last one for reference. You can see the results of the event and how people formatted their submissions.
On December 14th, UFC 245 will be held (US Eastern time - Early prelims 6:15pm Prelims 8pm, Main card 10pm)
Countdown to preliminary fights
The winner of the contest is chosen based on the number of correct predicted winners. The method of win is used when there is a tie. I will add the overall winner on Steam and send a game directly, so winning is based only on your ability to predict the fights or your good luck!
A pay-per-view event this time. I would normally avoid these, but it's a good card with exciting fighters. I think it's being broadcast on UFC Fight Pass, ESPN and ESPN+ in the U.S. This varies between countries though. If you want to check how to watch in your country, try this page (you might need to change the region).
You may be able to find another method of watching online, but I am not condoning or encouraging any kind of illegal activity!
Alternatively, soon after the event (or sometimes after each individual fight) you can probably see some of the highlights on sports news sites, or via clips and gifs on sites like the MMA subreddit.
Lots of good predictions here, some of you could have been very rich if you had put money on these! The results are below. I'll double check them and then contact the winner on Steam in the next day or two.
Fingers crossed I haven't made any mistakes in this wall of text!

12/12 - I missed a fight from the card. Not sure when it was added, but there are now 13 fights. Hopefully everyone can add their predictions. If everyone who has picked so far can add the extra fight, I'll count it in the event. If not, it'll just be based off 12 fights.

8. | Ian Heinisch vs. Omari Akhmedov | KO / SUB / DEC
13/12 - Everyone who made predictions with the old table has now provided an extra prediciton for the fight I missed. So long as all the fighters make weight and fight, we will use all 13 fights in the contest. Weigh ins are scheduled for 7pm Eastern Time on Friday. I'll post after them with any updates or changes.
14/12 - All fighters have weighed in. Jessica Eye was 5lbs over the limit, but the fight will go ahead. Ceremonial weigh in videos
15/12 Event has started so no more entries please.
I'm looking forward to this UFC event, it's a pretty good card. I'm hoping Usman destroys Covington. Thanks for putting this on Smythe, I enjoy the UFC ones a lot :)
Yeah, the card looks good. Fingers crossed that nobody gets injured or misses weight. Jose Aldo is dropping a weight class, so that might be a risk. I'd like Usman to win too. Whoever wins that fight, I just hope it isn't all wrestling!
Choices recorded. Thanks for the entry and good luck!
I managed to miss a fight from the card. :(
No need to post the whole table again, but if you can make one extra prediction on the fight below, I'll add it to your picks. Sorry for the mistake!

Np at all, I've updated. No need to apologize :)
got it, thanks :)
13 | Omari Akhmedov | KO
got it, thanks
3 belts on the event, what am i missing?
its been a while so im mostly favoring names i know
and thanks for reminding me
that's the problem with cake days matching other holidays,, you kinda forget about them
Got the prediction, thanks
Hello! Thank you for this event (again). My predictions:
Good luck to all!
Omari Akhmedov by SUB
Stoked for stacked event.
1.Colby has this cringey persona but is a good dude outside of the spotlight. Usman looks like he is on some good supplements tho.
2.Reach will play a big factor, but Alex could close the distance and surprise a lot of people, he is freakishly strong.
3.Been six years and I think Germaine might take it this time around. Nunes might be coming in overconfident, if not Nunes wins.
4.Aldo should be going up, not down. He is aging/slower, hope he can prove me wrong. Weight cut looks rough on him already.
5.Faber could have taken an other opponent but wants to prove he can hang with the new gen, respect.
6.This can be a banger, going for Platinum
8.Matt fought harder competition, I see him finishing KillaBee
I've got the 7 you decided on. Maybe you can guess the others. It'll be difficult to win otherwise. :)
In addition to the fights you haven't picked yet, I managed to miss a fight from the card. :(
After the missing predictions, can you make one extra prediction on the fight below, I'll add it to your picks. Sorry for the mistake!
Sure thing! Thx.
Thank you for the opportunity ;)
Ok, no problem ;)
Thanks for continuing this. Here are my mostly blind/uninformed predictions.
I almost have no idea about these people but let's just try, swh.
Here you go
Hope I'm wrong about the Aldo fight but I think the move to a new weight class will take a lot out of him.
There have been a few photos of Aldo where he looks drained, but hopefully he can still perform well.
Omari Akhmedov KO
Thanks for the opportunity!
Fight Week Baby LETS GO!
Thanks for new event
Sorry. If it's possible - change Volkanovski to KO. All-in -_-
Sorry, got to stick with the no changes after the event starts rule :(
I know the actual bout hasn't started, but need to stick with a firm cut off - if people can submit late there's always a chance I'll miss one and create an unfair advantage.
You're doing well with the predictions so far though! 4 correct fighters.
Sorry, that's my bad. I should have thought abour my variant better, without spoiling deadlines. Sorry again
2nd place - well done!
I sent you a runners up prize on Steam chat :)
Well, I wonder if my bets are more educated this time!
Btw it seems that FSpectro below just copied all my bets, with one single modification. His one SUB in fight 9, instead of my KO.
Nice card to end the year. But still waiting for Kabib vs Tony :)
Hopefully Khabib and Tony will actually happen this time! I've got my fingers crossed that there'll be no injuries..
I got the DEC, but don't forget to choose which fighter :)
lol I am stupid :)
Easily done :)
Got it now, thank you
ps. 💪🕶 -CSO- 🇺🇸🏆🇲🇽
The Ian Heinisch fight wasn't in my table as I didn't know it was on. It wasn't included on the fight card I checked a few days ago :(
I'll add it to the main post now, but as so many people have already made their picks unless they all add that extra fight I'll probably have to leave it out of the event.
watching the fights gonna be more fun now:) thanks.
Predictions (I'm totally gonna forget them by Saturday)
Thank you for doing this competition!
Congratulations on the win. I sent you a Steam friend request :)
Oh I won? That's great, can I pick my prize? I've been meaning to clean up my wishlist, remove games that I don't really want anymore or have already in a different release and whatnot. Don't worry I know I can't choose something currently expensive, but I'd really appreciate some options.
You can send me a few ideas in Steam chat.
I found a few games on your list I already have keys for, bit happy to try and find something you really want.
I'll say here what I said there, let me know what keys you already have, no reason to make you spend any money if you happen to have something I really want already.
I was in my notifications and noticed something, happy cakeday!
I've recorded those choices, but there is one fight missing.
Please see my post update and first comment. I've put the details below...
Thanks for pointing it out:
Hope I got the numbers right
Yeah, the numbers are right.
It's the 8th fight, but I put it as 13 for people adding as I thought it would be confusing to renumber all the other fights.
Got the final prediction now, thanks.
