Sterling vs Dillashaw Prediction

UFC 280 Sterling-Dillashaw prediction is from Tapology Fight Predictions.
Winner: Aljamain Sterling (63%)
Method of Victory: Decision (62%)

Aljamain Sterling enters UFC 280 with a seven-fight winning streak under his belt. His most recent outing saw him successfully defend the newly unified UFC Bantamweight Championship against Petr Yan, marking Sterling's fourth decision victory in his last seven outings.

Meanwhile, TJ Dillashaw hasn't fought since defeating Cory Sandhagen over a year ago in the former's UFC return following a two-year suspension. While he is a former bantamweight champion, Dillashaw wasn't overly impressive in his split decision win and needs to prove that he can still be at the top of the food chain.

Throw in the fact that Dillashaw has only fought once in nearly four years, I'm siding with Sterling winning this one by decision at +125.
