UFC Fight Night 191: Brunson vs. Till main card staff predictions

It’s a Liverpool invasion this weekend in the UFC with Darren Till making his return, Paddy Pimblett making his much-anticipated debut and much more. The predictions from the MMA Empire team, along with our guest picker, can be found below for the five-fight main card.

Our guest picker for this event is Canadian middleweight prospect Mariusz Ksiazkiewicz (8-1). After starting his career a perfect 8-0, Ksiazkiewicz earned a shot on Dana White’s Contender Series (DWCS) last summer, but was on the wrong side a decision. Ksiazkiewicz will look to work his way back to another DWCS opportunity, or possibly a fast-tracked UFC call, when he returns to action in October.
