UFC 245 is coming to the T-Mobile Arena this Saturday Dec. 14 and the main card is stacked with not one, not two, not four... don't get greedy... but an impressive three title fights. The Women's Bantamweight belt is on the line between champ Amanda Nunes and #1 contender Germaine De Randamie. After that is the Featherweight title bout between champ Max Holloway and #1 contender Alexander Volkanovski. The card is topped off with a battle for the Welterweight strap between champ Kamaru Usman and #2 contender Colby Covington.
So, let's take a closer look at the main card matchups and I'll give my predictions so you can bet your life savings accordingly. Disclaimer: I'm kidding. Please don't do that.
