Vera vs Cruz Prediction

UFC on ESPN 41 Vera-Cruz prediction is from Tapology Fight Predictions.
Winner: Marlon Vera (75%)
Method of Victory: KO/TKO (51%)

Marlon Vera has been one of the most exciting bantamweight fighters over the last few years. He's gone 4-1 in his last five outings, scoring victories over Davey Grant, Frankie Edgar and Rob Font in his most recent three bouts.

While Dominick Cruz has recorded back-to-back wins, it's important to remember that injuries have held the former bantamweight champion to just three fights in the last six years. He was knocked out by Henry Cejudo and only beat Casey Kenney by split decision.

Cruz's best days are behind him and though he still has some left in the tank, beating Vera will be easier said than done. Due to his opponent's injury history, give me Vera by KO/TKO.
