UFC Vegas 74 Predictions: Flyweights Take the Spotlight

The upcoming UFC Vegas 74 event is set to showcase an exciting main event featuring flyweight contenders Kai Kara-France and Amir Albazi. It marks a significant moment for the division, as it’s the first time since 2017 that a non-title flyweight fight has headlined a UFC event.


In addition to this highly anticipated matchup, the card includes several intriguing bouts and veteran fighters, promising an action-packed night of fights at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas.


Flyweights Face Off In Las Vegas!


Main Event: Kai Kara-France vs. Amir Albazi

Kai Kara-France (5) and Amir Albazi (13) are both well-rounded fighters with the potential to make a significant impact in the flyweight division. While Kara-France is known for his advanced striking skills, Albazi possesses a strong grappling game that could pose a challenge to his opponent. Albazi’s ability to work against the fence and capitalize on opportunities to take Kara-France’s back could be a deciding factor in the UFC upcoming matches.


Moreover, Albazi’s solid defense, sharp counters, and power make him a formidable opponent. If the fight stays on the feet, Kara-France’s striking expertise may give him the edge. However, Albazi’s well-rounded skill set and potential to exploit Kara-France’s defensive deficiencies make him a strong contender. The prediction for this bout is a victory for Albazi, potentially ending the fight before Round 3 via submission.


Alex Caceres vs. Daniel Pineda

Alex Caceres, known as “Bruce Leeroy,” has firmly established himself as a top competitor in the featherweight division. Although he has often relied on decision victories, Caceres has the potential to finish fights. Daniel Pineda, on the other hand, has a reputation for being a finisher and will likely pursue a more aggressive strategy. Expect an entertaining back-and-forth battle between these two fighters, with Caceres ultimately hurting Pineda and securing a finish via strikes.


Jim Miller vs. Jesse Butler

Despite Jesse Butler stepping in on short notice, it’s unlikely that he will pose a significant challenge to Jim Miller. Miller’s team has had ample time to prepare, making this fight favorable for him. Butler’s striking style plays into Miller’s hands, as Miller possesses advanced grappling skills that could neutralize Butler’s strategy. Miller’s experience and aggressive striking will likely lead him to victory, overwhelming Butler and securing a win.


Tim Elliott (T15) vs. Victor Altamirano

The matchup between Tim Elliott and Victor Altamirano promises an exciting and unpredictable fight. Altamirano’s unique fighting style, characterized by a slightly off-balance but controlled approach, adds an intriguing element to this flyweight bout. However, Elliott’s aggression and dominant ground game make him a formidable opponent. Elliott is expected to take control of the fight and push the pace, utilizing his aggressive submission attempts to secure a first-round submission victory.


Karine Silva vs. Ketlen Souza

In her UFC debut, Ketlen Souza brings unpredictability to the fight with her athleticism and smart fighting approach. However, Karine Silva’s finishing ability and consistent track record of knockout or submission victories make her a strong favorite in this bout. Silva’s well-rounded skills and aggressive style are likely to wear down Souza, leading to a potential opening for a finish via choke.


Elizeu Zaleski vs. Abubakar Nurmagomedov

Abubakar Nurmagomedov’s patient and strategic fighting style will be put to the test against the creative and unpredictable Elizeu Zaleski. Zaleski’s one-year USADA suspension raises questions about his current form, but if his striking is at its peak, he could pose a threat to Nurmagomedov. 


However, Nurmagomedov’s wrestling skills and strength give him an advantage in controlling the fight. If Zaleski’s timing is even slightly off, he will struggle to capitalize on openings, allowing Nurmagomedov to secure takedowns and control the fight until the final bell.



The upcoming UFC Vegas 74 event promises an exciting night of fights, with the flyweight matchup between Kai Kara-France and Amir Albazi taking the spotlight as the main event. The event also features compelling bouts between Alex Caceres and Daniel Pineda, Jim Miller and Jesse Butler, Tim Elliott and Victor Altamirano, Karine Silva and Ketlen Souza, as well as Elizeu Zaleski and Abubakar Nurmagomedov. MMA fans can expect a thrilling evening of action at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas.
