UFC Fight Night 81 fight night 81 UFC Fight Night 81: Dillashaw vs. Cruz predictions UFCFN81

The UFC returns to action for UFC Fight Night 81: Dillashaw vs. Cruz on Sunday, January 17 at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.

The night kicks off with a five-fight early prelim card at 6:00 p.m. eastern on UFC Fight Pass, followed by a four-fight preliminary card on Fox Sports 1 at 8:00pm and finishes up with a four-fight main card at 10:00 p.m. on Pay-Per-View.

The main event features a five-round bantamweight championship bout between current champ T.J. Dillashaw and former interim UFC champion and former WEC champ Dominick Cruz. Dillashaw is riding a four-fight win streak and will look to defend his belt for the third time on Sunday night. Cruz has not lost since 2008, currently on a 11-fight win streak, and is looking to regain his belt that he never lost in the first place. His belt was stripped due to numerous injuries.

The co-main event features a three-round lightweight bout between two former champions Anthony Pettis and Eddie Alvarez. Pettis, the former UFC and WEC champion, is returning to the Octagon after losing his belt to current champion Rafael Dos Anjos in March. Alvarez, the former Bellator champion, is 1-1 since joining the UFC and is coming off a victory over former Strikeforce champion Gilbert Melendez.

13 bouts are schedule for UFC Fight Night 81 and the Mill City Sports MMA crew has predicted who will be the winner of each main card fight. This week’s Mill City Sports predictions are sponsored by DraftKings!
