Welcome to the Tinder Predictions series. If you aren’t already familiar with these articles then buckle in, you’re in for a roller coaster ride. Ahead of UFC PPV events, Bloody Elbow takes to the popular dating app, Tinder, to see what predictions users have on the headlining fight(s). We will keep a tally and display screenshots of the most interesting comments, predictions “hot takes,” and pick-up lines from our findings.
This chapter of Tinder Predictions comes ahead of ‘UFC 255 - ‘FIGUEIREDO VS PEREZ’ on Saturday, November 21, which will take place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. Valentina Shevchenko (19-3) is expected to defend her Flyweight title against Jennifer Maia (18-6-1) in the co-main event of the night.
Team: Valentina Shevchenko

- Good fight and good wings is all we can ask for.
- Champs are champs for a reason until they are dethroned.
- Can’t argue with this logic.
- It’s that they got Khabib’s name right and Conor’s wrong for me.
