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

How to enter/Rules

  • Copy the formatted table below with a list of scheduled fights.
  • Choose a winner in ALL 13 FIGHTS by deleting one name and leaving your predicted winner
  • Choose the method by which they will win (KO=knockout/technical knockout, SUB=submission, or DEC=judges decision) by deleting two methods and leaving your prediction.
  • Post your predictions below
  • You can reply to your own post to change it, but changes or submissions made after the scheduled start of the preliminary fights will not be counted (I have a add-on that lists the time of any edited posts so it's easy to check if anyone does this)
  • Last minute change of fighters by the UFC or cancellations will mean that fight does not count in the contest (e.g Colby Covington can't fight and is replaced by another fighter = the result of that fight is ignored for all predictions). I will try to keep on top of this and post any news as I find it leading up to the event so you can change your predictions in time.

Predictions

Prizes

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!

  1. 1st place The person with the most correct predictions will receive a game from their wishlist (must have been added before 11 December). If you have no wishlist or they're all expensive games, I'll contact you to work out another prize. Similar deal if there's a tie for 1st. I'm not rich!
  2. Runner up I don't have as many bundle keys as I used to, but hopefully I can still provide a couple of runner up gifts. I'll try and find something from your wishlist or games similar to ones you like. Worst case scenario, I'll create a private giveaway for people who entered.

How to Watch

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.

Results

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.

That UFC was insane! So emotional.
Yan vs Faber and Covington vs Usman - best fights.

Yeah, a lot of good fights, even on the prelims. I really enjoyed the Moreno fight.
I was a bit surprised at the Aldo fight decision, but it was a close fight.

That was the nasty hit that broke Covington's jaw.

Just in case people weren't aware the whole huge ego, MAGA/Trump, big ridiculous suits etc. is a character he made for the media, like a pro wrestler... although he seems to dispute that after admitting it in an interview.

Congrats on the winners, here and on the card, I went with my heart except for the Aldo fight, which I consequently predicted correctly. Wish he`d won tho and he did much better than I anticipated. Pretty decent card overall.
