Quick Picks: UFC Gdansk – Cerrone vs. Till

Gdansk is the home of the UFC this Saturday as Poland takes centre stage in the world of MMA with this event in their home country the night before KSW visits Dublin. The card is headlined by a possible changing of the guard match-up between Donald Cerrone and Darren Till while fans will also be excited to see the likes of Karolina Kowalkiewicz, Marcin Held, Artem Lobov and Andre Fili all in action.

Here are quick picks for the event.

Welterweight: Donald Cerrone vs. Darren Till – If Till can rise a level he has a chance but the pick has to be the more experienced Cerrone

Women’s Strawweight: Karolina Kowalkiewicz vs. Jodie Esquibel – Fighting in her home country, Kowalkiewicz should have enough standing to win
