UFC 215 PREDICTIONS 9/9: Grocke’s updated odds and predictions for every fight


UFC 215 is live from the Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada tonight. Due to Ray Borg having to pull out of his main event bout against Demetrious Johnson, the fight has been scrapped. The new main event for UFC 215 is Amanda Nunes defending her Bantamweight title against Valentina Shevchenko. The co-main event is a pivotal battle in the welterweight division where Neil Magny faces off against Rafael Dos Anjos.

The five fight main card also includes, Henry Cejudo vs. Wilson Reis in what should be an exciting fight between two of the top five flyweights in the world, Ilir Latifi takes on up-and-comer Tyson Pedro in a battle of light heavyweights and Gilbert Melendez makes his return to the cage when he goes up against fellow MMA veteran Jeremy Stephens.

The early prelims will air on UFC Fight Pass starting at 6PM CT, with Fox Sports 1 taking over at 7PM CT for the prelims. The main card starts at 9PM CT on PPV.

Here are the current odds and my predictions of each fight.
