Lightning Locks is here to break down the UFC Fight Night bout between Andre Arlovski and Jake Collier. Will the veteran reign supreme?

UFC Fight Night Prediction: Andre Arlovski vs Jake Collier Best Bet

This coming Saturday we see the return of the ageless phenom Andre "The Rabid Dog" Arlovesketit going toe to toe with the Pillsbury Doughboy himself, Jake Collier. Normally when one tries to properly analyze a heavyweight contest that takes place inside of the Ultimate Fighting Championship the general consensus you're going to get is what minute of the bout is going to end in complete annihilation.

Andre Arlovski vs Jake Collier Prediction

Not with this Bulgarian Bruiser's most recent track record, however, as when push comes to shove the chicken comes way, way before the egg or any sort of finish for that matter. To dumb it down for any smooth-brained individual not accustomed to my bodacious phrase comparisons here is the brass-taxed translation: Arlovski has mutated into a ballet dancer for the sake of longevity but at the cost of his knockout ability. It's not every day you see a 43-year-old making the rounds in the UFC, let alone brandishing a three-fight winning streak, but by fighting like an Olympic gold medal worthy figure skater Andre has been able to take the twilight of his career into Benjamin button territory and then some. 

Now that we have gone over what makes "The Pitbull" tick, it's time to summarize just what makes Jake Collier, "The Prototype." Standing at 6 foot 3 265 pounds at his last few weigh-offs, Mr. Jake has really taken advantage of his new heavyweight division by never skipping a day of eating since the Pandemic initially began. Hard to believe he could have ever contended as a middleweight, the man who ate Jake Collier now resides to square Mano y Torta with the big boys, where he has actually rattled off more wins in this most recent string of entanglements than he ever did fighting at 185. His previous combative affair with Chase Sherman who is also fighting this Saturday left me truly in awe to put it quite frankly, as not only did he beat the true heavyweight with strikes but on the ground comfortably as well.

So jokes and flatulence aside, at the end of the day who takes home the dub and secures the bag Saturday? While I personally have been impressed with Jake's willingness to go into the deep end of the heavyweight division and grit out some victories no matter what odds were stacked against his favor, it's hard not to take the more tried and true veteran of Andrei. 

Showing impeccable takedown defense, a matrix level of distance control management, and consistently delivering the always aforementioned Arlovski output leads me to believe this boomer takes it once more and reestablishes himself as the one thing in big Leagued Mix Martial Arts besides Dana White that is actually eternal.
