UFC 297 is finally upon us and will be surely be an excellent card. The Main Event is capped off with a title fight featuring two top middleweights in a epic grudge match. This fight is sure to be entertaining from start to finish. Check below for my UFC 297 Main Event Prediction.

Sean Strickland (28-5) Vs Dricus Du Plesis (20-2)

Both men are coming off of huge upset wins in their last fight.

Strickland shocked the world beating Adesanya by decision and Du Plessis took out ex-champion Robert Whitaker via TKO.

Its worth noting that Du Plessis would have been fighting Adesanya last September but decided against it as he was dealing with injuries and wasn’t ready.

In my opinion that is a wise move as sometimes fighters only ever get one shot at the title and it would be unwise to show up compromised.

I expect Du Plessis to be completely ready for this fight and potentially be the best version we have seen of him yet.

On the other hand, Strickland is a very formidable opponent and won’t be easy to beat.

My pick is for Du Plessis to turn this into a war early and capitalize on some big shots and get an early finish.

Pick: Dricus Du Plessis ML (+100)
