UFC Fight Night 122 Predictions: Bleacher Report Main Card Staff Picks,Beginning at 3:45 a.m. ET on Saturday, November 25, UFC Fight Night 122 is the UFC’s debut in mainland China. That in itself makes this an interesting event, even if the brightest stars are the ones still in the night sky.
The four-fight main card—which, like the rest of the card, airs exclusively on the UFC Fight Pass streaming service—does carry other intrigue, including a co-main event featuring China’s pre-eminent fighter.
Take this opportunity to get acquainted with the eight main card competitors with our staff picks from Nathan McCarter, Craig “Cookie” Amos, Steven Rondina and myself, Scott Harris. Let’s get it on.
Muslim Salikhov’s most notable win came earlier this year when he sent Melvin Guillard crashing to the canvas in a heap after a head kick. The video went viral, and the UFC scooped up another potential star.
Alex Garcia is no easy out, but I’ll take a flier on the newcomer. He won’t have a stellar debut, but he’ll show he’s for real in a clear-cut, unanimous-decision victory.
