UFC Fight Night 145 is set to make history, as the biggest mixed martial arts promotion will be holding an event in Prague, Czech Republic for the first time ever this coming Sunday (Manila time).
The main event will surely be an entertaining one, as surging Light Heavyweights Jan Błachowicz (23-7) and Thiago Santos (20-6) will figure in an important match to see who will ascend further in the rankings. After inconsistent starts in their respective UFC careers, both fighters have been on a tear as of late and have been enjoying long winning streaks.

Main event predictions:
Both Santos and Błachowicz are hitting their strides at the moment—the former holding on to a three-fight winning streak, while the latter has won four straight. But something has to give in this fight, and I think it will be Santos’ streak that will be put on hold.
“Marreta” has certainly learned from his mishaps in the past, but his tendency to fall short in high profile bouts continues to plague his career. If Błachowicz can weather the early storm that will surely come his way, his superior grappling and ground control would most likely earn him a unanimous decision victory.
The former KSW champion is also as durable as they come, having only been knocked out once in 30 professional bouts.
