**ATTENTION: As of Sunday evening, Nov. 8 (many hours after the recording of this show) Islam Makhachev announced his intention to withdraw from the event due to undisclosed reasons (after having cancelled their last bout due to COVID-19), thus leaving the Headliner of the card without an opponent for RDA. Dos Anjos then called out Michael Chandler. Since then Chandler has declined the offer and the UFC has confirmed Paul Felder will be stepping in on short notice for Saturday’s Main Event. This show was recorded covering the main event under the assumption it was Makhachev vs RDA, all apologies for this unexpected change in the card.

At this point in the show we offer you our ‘disclaimer’ and then our trio will go about predicting the UFC Vegas 14 bout sheet, leading their way up to our Co-Main Event, and wrapping up the C/DC quick-picks portion of the show with the Main Event. This UFC on ESPN+ event will take place from The APEX Center, Las Vegas, Nevada #UFCVEGAS, this Saturday night.

Here’s a look at the upcoming fight card & records, bout order subject to change:
