UFC 260 Preview: The HW GOAT, The Predator & The Frozen One

Another weekend, another UFC card, this time it’s a PPV, UFC 260. What was originally supposed to feature 2 title fights is now down to 1, with Volk pulling out due to covid (sigh). Tyron Woodley ‘The Frozen One’ vs Vicente Luque steps into the co main slot, its not quite Volkanovski vs Ortega but still an intriguing co-main before the big one, Stipe Miocic vs Francis Ngannou. In this preview we’ll give you betting odds, predictions and background for each fight, lets get into it!

Start time: 11:30pm GMT

Where to watch: Bt Sports (Prelims & main card), Fight Pass (early prelims)

Meal: Dominoes, 35% off codes on unidays!

Snacks: None this weekend, eating clean (besides my dominoes)

Beverage: Just the one monster this weekend

Early Prelims

Just the one fight here, between too relatively unknown middleweights. There’s really not much to see here at all, I thought they might stack the prelims like they did at UFC 259 but I guess I can’t complain given the main card we’re getting. Azaitar is slight favourite here at evens. Full breakdown of odds and record will be below the main Prelims.


Again not much of a major note here, besides jared Gooden vs Abubakar Nurmagomedov. Khabib’s cousin, you might recognise him from the famous UFC 229 brawl, he cheap shotted Conor before getting cracked and leaving with a shiner.

Pretty safe to say I’ll be rooting for Jared Gooden here. This should be an intriguing welterweight bout, both lost their UFC debuts so are now looking to bounce back with a big win on a major card like this. Gooden has strong takedown defence, meanwhile like a typical Nurmagomedov, Abubakar will be looking to sniff the jockstrap, so expect plenty of grappling involved here. Besides this fight there’s really nothing notable on the prelims, I’ll be tuning in but its definitely missable.

Recent records and betting odds

Main Card

Now for the big one, even after losing a title fight it’s still not to be missed. The main event is a fight I feel is one of the biggest ever in UFC history, also featured are former champion Tyron Woodley and ‘Undefeated’ Suga Sean O’Malley. There’s plenty of intriguing fighters and fights on this card, I’m pumped.

Start time is the usual 3am but clocks go forward in Ireland and the UK on Saturday night, so things might not be as bad as usual (I hope). I recommend tuning in for the whole card but if its only the main event you’re interested in then set your alarms for 5, anyways lets get into the breakdown.

Khama Worthy vs Jamie Mullarkey

These two fighters benefitted from the cancelled FW title fight. They’ve been bumped up to the main card and now have a chance to stake their claim on the biggest stage. Mullarkey is 0 – 2 in his UFC career and could be looking at being cut if he loses this. Interestingly enough he fought the current champ Volkanovski (not my champ) back in 2016 and was knocked out. Khama Worthy is coming in off a loss after having recorded 7 wins a row, in his UFC debut he came in as a 7/1 underdog on 4 days notice and pulled off a sensational KO.

I fancy Khama to get the W here, but its a close one.

Last 3: Khama: L,W,W – Mullarkey: L,L,W

Odds: Khama: 8/11 – Mullarky 11/10

Gillian Robertson vs Miranda Maverick

This fight was originally scheduled for UFC 258 but was cancelled due to covid. Robertson is ranked #15 in the flyweight division, with the unranked Maverick looking to take her spot. I don’t know too much about these fighters but I do remember this elbow from Maverick.

Maverick is the bookies favourite and with striking like that I fancy her to get the job done and enter the rankings.

Last three: Robertson: L,W,W – Maverick: W,W,W

Odds: Robertson: 5/4 – Maverick 8/13

Suga Sean vs Thomas Almeida

This is a big one, the self proclaimed ‘still undefeated’ Suga Sean is back against Thomas Almeida who’s no chump, at one stage in his career he had all the hype and major backing from Dana. Last time out against Marlon Vera, O’Malley suffered an ankle injury mid fight and went onto lose by ground and pound. He’ll be looking to get back on track here against Almeida who is on a 3 fight losing streak, since his fight with Cody Garbrandt his career has fell off a cliff, before that he was 21-0 and had all the hype. A win here will be massive as Suga Sean is well known to the masses.

It should be a good fight but I fully expect Suga Sean to put on a show and win by KO, he needs a statement win and a quick turnaround after.

Last three: O’Malley: L,W,W – Almeida: L,L,L

Odds: O’Malley: 3/10 – Almeida: 12/5

Tyron ‘The Frozen One’ Woodley vs Vicente Luque

He’s lost 15 straight rounds, 75 straight minutes and has barely thrown a punch, yet I’m still gonna back this guy. He disgraced me and against Colby so now I have no expectations. I think if he loses this he’ll call it a day, he won’t even be worthy of being a gatekeeper. He’s against a dangerous Vicente Luque whose in probably the biggest spot of his career, co-main event in one of the biggest PPV’s of the year. He’ll be looking to make a big name for himself with a win on Saturday. He’s a solid fighter but has seemed to fall short against the best opposition in the past. He does look to KO his opponents with his striking so Woodley will need to be careful.

This is a tough one to call, surely Woodley has to show up sometime? It’s lose or retire for me and for that reason I think Tyron will pull this one out of the bag and win on decision.

Odds: Woodley: 15/8 – Luque: 2/5

Last three: Woodley: L,L,L – Luque: W,W,L

Stipe Miocic vs Francis Ngannou

I titled my in depth preview on this fight ‘Greatness vs Redemption’, that’s exactly what this is. The HW GOAT is looking to beat the odds yet again, meanwhile The Predator is looking to avenge his 2018 defeat and finally become the champ. For me it’s one of the biggest fights ever, as always with heavyweights, the fight could end at any moment in time but with all thats a stake here, this will be nerve wrecking. For my in depth preview of this fight check out my below article.

Again Stipe comes in as the underdog, that’s 4 of his last 5 that the odds makers have doubted him, yet he manages to win every single time. Francis again is the favourite and I understand, that level of power he possesses is undeniable, although Stipe has been the only man to take his shots and live to tell the tale, what a crazy fight this could turn out to be, as I said in my separate preview I’m backing Francis to get the job done this time, but don’t be surprised to see him do it late in the fight as I think he’ll be more patient this time.

Last three: Stipe: W,W,L – Ngannou: W,W,W

Odds: Stipe: EVS – Ngannou: 4/5

Something that must be stated is that regardless of who wins this fight, there’s one man waiting for the next shot…

I’m so pumped for this fight and for the future of the HW division, will be live tweeting from our twitter page throughout the PPV so make sure you join the discussion!
