MMA Forethought: UFC 223
The UFC makes their return to Brooklyn when they bring UFC 223 to Barclay's Center Saturday night. With Tony Ferguson removed and being replaced by Max Holloway on a week's notice to face Khabib Nurmagomedov, it could be hard to remember that the rematch between Rose Namajunas and Joanna Jedrzejczyk is also part of this event. However, when the UFC comes to New York they like to bring in their big guns.
Barclay's is normally home to boxing so things are a little different Saturday night with UFC 223 being the second MMA event in the venue. In keeping with being different, Frontproof Media will handle the main event predictions with some help from the Coast 2 Coast Combat Hour podcast crew which features Frontproof's own Ed Carbajal and arguably one of the greatest minds in MMA on the west coast, Matt Hawkins. Check out the podcast below:
This early in the week before weigh-ins, anything could happen and like all combat sports events, one punch can change a challenger to champion and vice versa before the night is through.
