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 257 on Saturday, January 23, which will take place on Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island. Former Lightweight champion Dustin Poirier (26-6) is expected to face former two-division champion Conor McGregor (22-4) in the main event of the night.

For this chapter of Tinder Predictions, I partnered with Bloody Elbow moderator and The Fight Site contributor, Ben Kohn. He made a profile of me (Alex) in New York to help gather predictions and commentary on the UFC 257 main event.
