UFC 174: Main Card Staff Predictions for Johnson vs. Bagautinov
USA TODAY Sports

Demetrious Johnson is on a path to MMA greatness.

On Saturday, the 125-pound champion will look to record a fourth consecutive UFC title defense in the UFC 174 main attraction. Standing opposite Mighty Mouse will be up-and-coming Russian flyweight Ali Bagautinov.

In his first three UFC appearances, Bagautinov has posted a 3-0 record. He might be the best wrestler Johnson will have faced at 125 pounds, but Bagautinov will be taking a noticeable step up in competition this weekend.

Before the elite featherweights step into the Octagon, a number of ranked UFC fighters will look to inch closer to their own title shots. Rory MacDonald, Tyron Woodley, Ryan Bader and Rafael Cavalcante are among those notable fighters who will also appear on Saturday.

As always, Riley Kontek, Scott Harris, James MacDonald, Craig Amos and Sean Smith are here to make semi-educated guesses on the headlining fights. Here are our UFC 174 main card predictions.
