UFC 299 – Severe MMA Staff Predictions

While much of the past few months was spent speculating on the lineup for UFC’s milestone 300th PPV card, it is its predecessor that is primed to steal the headlines when 2024 is said and done. This Saturday, UFC 299 serves up a mouthwatering event from top to bottom in Miami, Florida.

“Suga” Sean O’Malley aims to defend his bantamweight strap for the first time when he squares off in a main event rematch vs former Marlon “Chito” Vera. A top-heavy card this is not, though. Michael “Venom” Page is set to make his highly anticipated UFC debut vs the always entertaining Kevin Holland. MMA fans were left stunned with the announcement that Dustin Poirier was scheduled to welcome surging French finisher Benoit Saint-Denis, and their thirst violence will undoubtedly be quenched when the pair are locked inside the UFC Octagon on Saturday night.
