The Bloody Elbow Team made their predictions for UFC VEGAS 12 on ESPN +and only Tim Bissell believes Anderson Silva will (possibly) end his UFC career on a high level by defeating Uriah Hall. He is also the only one to select Andre Fili in the co-main against Bryce Mitchell. Hmm … wait a minute … Tim Bissell has seriously committed himself to contrarianism as I’ve never seen it before. At least not since Tim Burke’s absurd Strikeforce: Oklahoma City exhibit in 2013.
Uriah Hall versus Anderson Silva
Mookie Alexander: Maybe this fight gives us flashes of vintage spider like the Adesanya fight. Or we get a star competition between two counterattacks and an ugly decision lies ahead of us. Or Silva’s leg gives way again. Uriah Hall by unanimous decision.
Zane Simon: Few fighters are as in awe of their caged opponents as Anderson Silva. With the exception of Chris Weidman and Jared Cannonier, anyone who has fought the “Spider” seems to view it as a one-time honor rather than a fight they really need or even want to win. At one point that would almost certainly have been enough to beat Uriah Hall, who looks exactly like the guy who’s about to be wrapping himself up right now. But the current iteration of Silva is more than passive. All the subtleties, all misdirections, all classic Silva clowns are there, but the poison rarely gets behind them. When it steps in to make a difference, it is mostly cracked. I expect Hall will give Silva plenty of time and space to have a fun and entertaining fight. Kind of like Silva’s fights with Adesanya and Nick Diaz, but at the end of the day I just can’t trust Silva to win laps anymore. Uriah Hall on decision.

Andre Fili versus Bryce Mitchell
Mookie Alexander: This is a great fight. Fili is clearly the better striker and an underrated offensive wrestler, but he is dealing with a specialist who is absolutely good enough to outsmart him and make his day miserable. In many ways, this is pretty much a stylistic conflict, but I think we have to acknowledge that Mitchell will likely be wearing a camouflage in the cage so that Fili literally cannot find him. Bryce Mitchell by unanimous decision.
Zane Simon: This fight is going to tell us a hell of a lot about Bryce Mitchell’s immediate featherweight potential. Andre Fili is a skilled, consistent, and long-lived fighter everywhere. He can set a busy pace as a striker, either forward or backward. He can do some nice takedowns to change the swing if he has to. And he was generally solid in the fighting, with submissions resulting from isolated opportunistic moments rather than lengthy ground battles. He should certainly be able to pick up the pace with Mitchell and possibly keep it up. But I just don’t think he will. While his punch has improved a lot, Fili is still very beatable, especially when kicking the pocket. And his wrestling was more and more a way of slowing down good strikers. That said, Mitchell’s much more likely to rush him and try to knock him down. Can Fili Avoid a Chaotic Fight? Can he play a clean, technical out-game for three rounds? I think Mitchell is just too dangerous. Bryce Mitchell on presentation.

Kevin Holland versus Charlie Ontiveros
Mookie Alexander: Later exchange for an even later exchange. This will be a squash match. Kevin Holland from TKO, Round 1.

Maurice Greene versus Greg Hardy
Mookie Alexander: It would be funny if Greene beat Hardy with a triangular throttle, but more likely this is a terrible kickboxing match. Even lol Hardy almost lacks weight. Greg Hardy by unanimous decision.
Zane Simon: Hardy just seems to find it a little harder to knock him out as a persistent striker. Greg Hardy by decision.
Employees who select Hardy: Zane, Mookie, Dayne, Phil, Stephie
Employees choose Greene: Bissell
Bobby Green versus Thiago Moises
Mookie Alexander: This should be very similar to Michael Johnson’s fight, except that Bobby Green doesn’t have Johnson’s unique ability to throw away fights. Green looks better than ever and if he wanted to deal with Moises it wouldn’t be a death sentence. Moises is thoroughly surpassed on the feet from start to finish. Bobby Green by unanimous decision.
Zane Simon: Moises was last caught by a Hail Mary sub at Michael Johnson’s, but by that point his feet had been eaten absolutely alive. And while Bobby Green doesn’t always squeeze the action in his fights, he’s no Johnson when it comes to self-destructiveness. Green has always been an incredibly difficult fighter. And if he can keep up his performance like he’s been doing lately, he’ll likely have a pretty clear path to a decisive victory. Bobby Green by decision.
Employees who pick green: Zane, Mookie, Dayne, Phil, Stephie

Adrian Yanez gegen Victor Rodriguez
Mookie Alexander: Vic will ban Adrian Yanez the shit! Rule 4 in this MF! (Hint: Yanez will win). Adrian Yanez von KO, Round 1.
Zane Simon: Vic apparently saw Eddie Mercado get all that love for his pro debut and decided to make him even better. Are you really going to let that fool get to the UFC before you, Eddie? Adrian Yanez on KO, Round 1.
Tim Bissell: Nobody gives our man a chance! I believe in you buddy. Victor Rodriguez according to the technical template (Peruvian tie), 1st round.
Employees who select Yanez: Zane, Mookie, Dayne, Stephie
Staff choose Rodriguez: Bissell, Phil
