UFC Fight Night 198: Vieira vs. Tate main card staff predictions

Will Adrian Yanez continue his impressive start to his UFC career? Will Sean Brady come out victorious in his toughest test to date? 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 bantamweight prospect Isaiah Metituk (1-2). After a 6-4 amateur contested primarily at featherweight, Metituk made his bantamweight debut at BTC 11, which is the weight he will look to continue his career at. Look for Metituk to be back in action in early 2022.
