UFC Fight Night 62 is a fight card that does not feature many top contenders, but the main card features a fight that should be exciting. Demain Maia vs. Ryan LaFlare is a fight in which one of these fighters is going to get a big opportunity with a victory on Saturday. A win for Maia would mean a top five fight and put him one fight away from a title shot. A win for LaFlare would put him in the top ten and give him the opportunity to make a great run in 2015.

Another great fight featured on this card is Amanda Nunes vs. Shayna Baszler. These two women are polar opposites when it comes to fight style as Nunes has won 89% of her fights by KO/TKO while Baszler has won 87% of her fights by submission.

These two fights are just two of the many solid fights on the card and it should be a great night.

Here are my predictions for the “Fight Night” bonuses:

Fight of The Night:

The ‘Fight of the Night’ will go to the main event of the main card: Maia vs. LaFlare. I see this fight being a great one. LaFlare has won all of his UFC fights by unanimous decision while Maia is known for his amazing submission skills. LaFlare has never gone 5 rounds in the UFC and I think that will play an impact in this fight. I think both fighters will come out strong and win some rounds and then after a great fight Maia will end the fight with a submission in the fifth and final round.

Performance of the Night:

I think Nunes will end her fight with Shayna Baszler with an impressive KO/TKO that will earn her ‘Performance of the Night’. Nunes is going to come out and show she deserves some bigger fights after her POTN showing Saturday night.

My other ‘Performance of the Night’ bonus goes to Kevin Souza. I think he will also win by KO/TKO against Katsunori Kikuno. Souza has won 72% of his fights by KO/TKO, so I predict he will get another one and win the POTN.

 

Stay tuned for the latest news and updates revolving around UFC Fight Night 62.
