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 252 - ‘MIOCIC VS. CORMIER 3’ on Saturday, August 15th, which will take place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, NV. Four-time defending Heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic is set to defend his title against former two-division champion Daniel Cormier, who also looks to make this his retirement fight.
