UFC is back this Saturday March 2, 2024 live from the APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada. The 11 fight card is headlined by Jairzinho Rozenstruik Vs Shamil Gaziev in the heavyweight division. Overall the card doesn’t have too much name value but there is some top prospects competing and should produce some quality action. The card has an early start time with the prelims starting 1:30PM ET and the main card at 4PM ET. Check below for my UFC Vegas 87 prediction.

Vinicius Oliveira (19-3) Vs Bernardo Sopai (11-2)

The best way I can describe Vinicius Oliveira is a crazy wild Brazilian. It’s evident by his nickname “Lok Dog” and if you have seen him compete before you will know exactly what I mean.

He holds a strong record and has only been to decision twice in his 22 fights. It should be noted however that his 3 losses have all come via KO.

Bernardo “The Lion King” Sopai is taking this fight on short notice and also holds a strong record winning 10 of his victories by stoppage and he has only ever lost via decision.

Sopai is the younger man by 5 years but will face a 3 inch height disadvantage.

I believe both men to be very talented and I expect this fight to be won in dramatic fashion by either man. I have to side with Oliveira though because he is coming in on a full camp and I believe he has faced the tougher competition.

Pick: Vinicius Oliveira ML (-125)
