The grudge match between Tyron Woodley and Colby Covington finally comes to a head in the main event of UFC Vegas 11. Woodley will look to get back on track after two one-sided losses, the first being a title-fight against Kamaru Usman and the second being a main event against Gilbert Burns. Covington recently had a seven-fight win streak snapped against the champion Usman. Covington was slightly favored with five picks to four.

The co-main event should be a banger as Niko Price battles Donald Cerrone. Cerrone will be looking to stop a four-fight losing streak. He’s been fighting top-of-the-line lightweights including Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje. Price is one of the most exciting fighters in the UFC with all 11 of his fights in the Octagon failing to reach the final bell. Price was slightly favored with five picks to four.

Khamzat Chimaev will attempt to keep his meteoric rise going against Gerald Meerschaert. Chimaev is actually booked to fight Demian Maia in the near future, and Meerschaert has insited that he will not be able to make it to that fight. Meerschaert’s a tough submission specialist, but has lost two of his last three. All but one writer picked Chimaev.

A fiery striking battle between Johnny Walker and Ryan Spann will take place on the main card. After a thunderous start to his UFC run, Walker has slowed down with a pair of losses. Spann is 4-0 in the Octagon with a pair of finishes and is on an eight-fight win streak. Walker got the slight nod with five picks to four.

Mackenzie Dern gets her toughest test yet in Randa Markos. Dern is 3-1 in the Octagon and is coming off a submission against Hannah Cifers. Markos has lost two of her last three, with the defeats coming to Amanda Ribas and Claudia Gadelha. Dern was favored by six of nine writers.

Opening up the UFC Vegas 11 main card is an exciting bout between Darren Stewart and Kevin Holland. Holland has won five of his last six fights with two straight knockouts. Stewart has won three of his last four and is coming off a first-round submission victory. All but two writers picked Holland.
