Prediction for LFA 143: Lopes vs. Paiva (Main Event):
- Bruno Lopes will triumph via submission.
Because both fighters are Brazilian, they will have the same home advantage. They both weighed nearly the same on the scales, with Paiva slightly heavier. His long layoff between fights will also set him behind. Paiva, 24, is five years younger than his opponent, Bruno Lopes. His youth may offer him an advantage.
Meanwhile, Lopes has the advantage of being on a ten-win streak. Four of them were knockouts, while four were submissions. Paiva has an eight-win, four-loss record. Three of the victories were by knockout, while the remaining five were by submission. Bruno Lopes will be the overwhelming favorite on Friday and is anticipated to win by submission.
