Bryan Barberena vs. Gunnar Nelson Prediction: How Long Will This UFC 286 Fight Last?

These guys are scrappers and will come to fight in a very high-paced slugfest. The one thing about Bryan Barberena is that he is never scared to go to war to win, and I feel he is going to have to do that against Gunnar Nelson. Let's get into my prediction and pick for this UFC 286 main card fight.

Bryan Barberena vs. Gunnar Nelson Prediction

Gunnar Nelson's career took a major hit in 2019 after a close loss to Gilbert Burns. It has taken him three years to return to himself and fight again. After he lost that fight, he got a really horrible injury during training that kept him out for a long time. Now he is back, and after his last win over Takashi Soto, he is going to look to get the finish on experienced veteran Bryan Barberena.

The way Barberena fights is just fun to watch. He will empty his tank to get the finish. We should be in for a good non-boring, low-key banger of a fight between these two.

When I saw these two matched up against each other, the first thing that I said was that someone would get finished. This fight has all the potential of someone walking out of it with an extra 50k for a finish. I feel Nelson is going to use his wrestling skills and possibly choke the overly aggressive Barberena out in this fight.

Barberena's last two fights both resulted in a finish. So I can’t see this fight going three rounds at all. The fans in England are going to want these fighters to put on a show, and I know for sure these two will do that. I’m rocking with the under in this fight, and I expect it to hit! Let’s cash
