UFC on ESPN+ 22 will go down tomorrow afternoon (Sat. November 16, 2019) from the Ginásio do Ibirapuera in Sao Paulo, Brazil. In the main event of the night, Jan Blachowicz welcomes Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza to the light heavyweight division.
The winner could very well be on their way to receiving a highly-ranked opponent next. We here at LowKickMMA have compiled our UFC Sao Paulo staff predictions for the Blachowicz vs. Souza main event. Check them out below.
UFC Sao Paulo Staff Predictions
It hasn’t worked well for middleweights jumping up to light heavyweight as of late. Souza, of course, brings a very different dynamic to the division with his ground game.
But he has to get the fight there first. Blachowicz has looked phenomenal as of late and comes off a knockout win over Luke Rockhold. I think Blachowicz might be just strong enough to prevent the fight from going to the ground, and will outclass Souza on the feet. (Prediction: Jan Blachowicz)
