UFC Fight Night 189: Rozenstruik vs. Sakai main card staff predictions

One week off from the UFC always feels like one month. But they’re back at it with another intriguing card, including Canada’s own Tanner Boser taking on Ilir Latifi on the prelims. The predictions from the MMA Empire team, along with our guest picker, can be found below for the six-fight main card.

Our guest picker for this event is Canadian bantamweight Isaiah Metituk (0-1). Metituk dropped his professional debut earlier this year at Rise FC 6, but is looking to avenge that loss tomorrow night at BTC 10 where he will take on Broderick Rene.
