UFC 271 – Severe MMA Staff Predictions

The Severe MMA team are back once again to share our main card predictions for the second PPV of 2022, as the UFC returns to Houston, Texas!

The UFC 271 main event features a rematch between two of the greatest fighters ever to emerge out of Oceania, as “The Last Stylebender” Israel Adesanya (21-1) makes the fourth defense of his middleweight crown against familiar foe, “The Reaper” Robert Whittaker (23-5). In the co-main event, fan-favourite heavyweights collide as hometown hero Derrick “The Black Beast” Lewis (26-8) welcomes Australia’s Tai “Bam Bam” Tuivasa to the Toyota Center.
