Cain Velasquez has a huge edge over his opponents in the UFC 264 main event. According to MMA Fighting, he has been training with Jon Jones, who is one of the best fighters in the world right now. Therefore, it seems he might have an advantage when it comes down to it.

However, there are some things that could help or hurt Velasquez. The first thing that could either help or hurt him is how the fight goes. If Velasquez can control the pace and tempo of it, then he will be able to get more hits in and do more damage than his opponents would like. On the other hand, if his opponents get him into a wild brawl where neither one knows what they’re doing then it could be disastrous for Cain’s chances at victory.

The second thing that’s going against Velasquez will be how much time he spends on his back foot during this match up. As we all know from watching previous fights such as Jon Jones vs Daniel Cormier II (which lasted almost 5 rounds), when fighters spend too much time standing still they tend to get taken down quickly by their

Cain Velasquez has been relatively inactive since his return to the UFC, but he still has the skills to get past a surging Francis Ngannou in the main event of UFC 264.

Ngannou is coming off two first-round knockouts of Stipe Miocic, who was the best heavyweights in UFC history. The Frenchman also dominated Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Curtis Blaydes in recent fights, putting him on a four-fight win streak as he prepares for Velasquez.

Velasquez had lost three of his last five fights before he retired and joined WWE. But the former heavyweight champion returned to MMA in 2020 and knocked out Francis Ngannou at UFC Phoenix in February 2019.

The 38-year-old then fought in September and lost a unanimous decision to Jairzinho Rozenstruik at UFC 252.

Ngannou has earned title shots after knocking out Miocic twice, but he didn’t have much success against Velasquez when they met two years ago.

Alistair Overeem is fighting again.

That’s a little like saying that the sun rose this morning, but it’s not a certainty so I’m going to point it out.

The 37-year-old heavyweight legend will step into the cage for the 77th time in his career on Saturday night when he faces Alexander Volkov in a bout that will be part of the UFC 264 main card. It’s part of a tripleheader of fights that features three heavyweights—the co-main event will be Walt Harris against Marcin Tybura, and the third heavyweight bout on the card is Chris Daukaus vs. Parker Porter.

Overeem, who is ranked No. 6 by Bleacher Report and No. 7 by the UFC, has lost two straight fights—one to Jairzinho Rozenstruik last December and one to Alexander Gus-tafsson earlier this year—and needs a win to keep himself relevant in the division. He has been beaten by five champions in his career (Junior dos Santos, Stipe Miocic, Fabricio Werdum, Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem) and two interim champions (Shane Carwin and Cain Velasquez).

Conor McGregor is the best mixed martial artist to ever step foot inside of the Ultimate Fighting Championship octagon.

But, as I’ve said in this space before, it’s also true that he’s an MMA fighter with a lot of vulnerabilities.

And while his boxing skills are elite and his timing is often impeccable, he has been outwrestled before—most notably by Nate Diaz.

The Irishman will face off against Dustin Poirier on Saturday night in the main event at UFC 264, which goes down at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

It’s a rematch of their 2014 fight, which saw McGregor knock out Poirier in less than two minutes to win his seventh straight fight and improve to 16-2 overall.

UFC 264 is less than a week away, and fans are eager to see the main event between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor. The first fight ended in the second round with a TKO win for McGregor, but this time it will not be so easy for him.

Poirier has grown since their first fight and has become a much more complete fighter. He uses his reach very well, and he is also able to mix up his striking game with some wrestling. He can work on taking the fight to the ground if he needs to.

Poirier has improved his striking game as well, and he is much more confident when striking standing up. His jab has gotten better, and that means that he can set up other strikes to finish the fight.

The biggest difference between these fighters is their height and reach; Poirier is an inch taller than McGregor, and he also has a four-inch reach advantage. This gives him the edge because McGregor will have to get in close to land any significant strikes.

McGregor will also have to be careful when trying to take the fight to the ground as Poirier does have some good takedown defense. If he does get taken down then he will need to try and get back up quickly otherwise

Las Vegas will play host to a UFC triple-header on Saturday night.

The main event is the third fight between lightweights Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor. The first fight ended in a first-round TKO victory for McGregor, the second went to Poirier by second-round submission.

The co-main event features Dan Hooker against Michael Chandler, who is making his UFC debut.

In the bantamweight division, Cory Sandhagen will look to move up in the rankings with a victory over former champion TJ Dillashaw.
