We are back with another installment of Tinder Predictions ahead of UFC 234 coming up on Saturday, February 9, at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia.
If you aren’t already familiar with this series then buckle in, you’re in for a ride. Ahead of UFC PPV events, we take to the popular dating app, Tinder, to see what predictions users have on the headlining fight(s). We keep a tally and display screenshots of the most interesting comments, “hot takes,” and pick-up lines from our findings.
Team: Robert “The Reaper” Whittaker
Weird corny word switch up, we have never understood your purpose:
Well… Robert Whittaker is pretty likable, so no fault in this logic:
Apparently, they picked me by accident but at least they picked Whittaker by choice:
“They would both kick my ass seven ways to Sunday.”
Can’t fault anyone for picking him based on his Kiwi status:
This next one, very original. Never heard this one before ever:
The Cris Cyborg reminder loses this guy points:
Not the first guy to be confused by this, and certainly not the last:
I laughed, not going to lie:
Something tells me this guy will not be kicking either of their asses, ever:
Team: Kelvin Gastelum
Bold prediction… even bolder follow-up statement:
Criteria was a bit weird, but Team Kelvin all the way!
If you ever have doubts as to what lengths we will go to just to get fight picks… here is a terrible Google translate job on my part:
Kelvin Gastelum via submission!
This next exchange was confusing, but at least he sorted himself out in the end:
Strictly a Khabib fan. Nothing else to see here folks:
If true, having dinner with ‘The Stylebender’ earns major points:
Knowledge limited to: Conor McGregor, Jose Aldo, and Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Also uses the term “mami” when referring to a woman.
Well, according to Dana White the winner gets the next shot at the title so… *shrugs*
Well, this one wasn’t obvious at all:
This next one may be the worst opener we’ve ever received:
Answer to this next one: No.
Time to expand the distance on this app it seems.
This one has to be one of the top five strangest hot takes in all of Tinder Predictions history:
This one took a sudden and awkward turn…
Someone got mighty confused, to say the least. Possibly messaging us from the future? Who knows?
With that, we have come to the conclusion of the UFC 232 chapter in the Tinder Prediction series. In total, we matched with 114 profiles and received 82 official votes.
Robert Whittaker – 61
Kelvin Gastelum – 21
The Tinder users have spoken, and by their vote, we should expect Bobby Knuckles to walk away victorious.
