On the latest episode of Ringside Report MMA, hosts Dave Simon, Fred Garcia, and AJ D’Alesio delved into their predictions and insights for this weekend’s UFC 303 fight card and the highly anticipated Dricus Du Plessis vs. Israel Adesanya bout at UFC 305. The trio shared their thoughts on key matchups, potential outcomes, and what fans can expect from these exciting fights. Let’s analyze their analysis and see who they pick for UFC 303.

UFC 303 Predictions: Prochazka vs Pereira

Dave Simon: “Yuri Prochazka and Alex Pereira are headlining UFC 303, and this card has zero buzz. I think Pereira will win by knockout, probably in the first, second, or third round. Yuri couldn’t match technique with Pereira in their first fight, and I don’t see it going any other way this time.”

Fred Garcia: “I’m going with Pereira by TKO. He defeated Yuri seven months ago; I don’t think much has changed. Pereira’s striking is sharper, and Yuri takes a lot of damage. Pereira is going to dominate this fight.”

AJ D’Alesio: “I think it will go further than three rounds. Yuri needs to avoid those calf kicks that took him down last time. If he can adjust, it could be a different fight altogether. But I still think Pereira will win, probably by decision.”

Co-Main Event: Brian Ortega vs Diego Lopes

Dave Simon: “Brian Ortega looked incredible in his last fight against Yair Rodriguez. This is peak Brian Ortega, and I don’t think Diego Lopes is ready for this level. I’m picking Ortega to win.”

Fred Garcia: “I’m with Dave on this one. Ortega’s last fight showed his full potential, and Lopes hasn’t faced anyone at Ortega’s level. I’m going with Ortega as well.”

AJ D’Alesio: “I’m going with Lopes. Ortega’s defensive striking is sometimes terrible, and Lopes has great striking and excellent grappling. I think Lopes will pull off the win.”

Key Fight: Anthony Smith vs Roman Dolidze

Dave Simon: “Anthony Smith vs Roman Dolidze is an interesting matchup. After all the changes and dropouts, we finally have this fight. I’m picking Smith to win. He looked good in his last fight, and I think he’ll continue that form.”

Fred Garcia: “Smith is a solid pick. He’s experienced and has faced tougher competition. I think he’ll take this fight.”

AJ D’Alesio: “I agree with both of you. Smith has the edge in this matchup, and I think he’ll come out on top.”

Upcoming Bout at UFC 305: Dricus Du Plessis vs Israel Adesanya

Dave Simon: “Looking ahead to UFC 305, we have Dricus Du Plessis defending his title against Israel Adesanya. This is going to be a huge fight. If Adesanya wins, a rematch with Sean Strickland makes a lot of sense. Strickland beat Adesanya badly the first time, and I’d love to see if he can do it again.”

Fred Garcia: “I agree with Dave. If Du Plessis wins, a rematch with Strickland would be great, too, since their first fight was so close. Either way, Strickland deserves to be next in line.”

AJ D’Alesio:Strickland is next for the winner, but let’s not count out Robert Whittaker. If Strickland gets hurt or something happens, Whittaker is still in the mix and could get a title shot.”
