The card from inside the Rogers Arena also includes a major matchup in the lightweight rankings when former division king Charles Oliveira competes for the first time since losing his belt to take on red-hot fighter Beniel Dariush in the night’s co-main event.

UFC 289 also features the return of Octagon veterans Dan Ige, Miranda Maverick, and Eryk Anders. With all of that in mind, let’s make a few bold UFC predictions for the promotion’s next Saturday event

UFC predictions: 4 best bets to win at UFC 289

Amanda Nunes (22-5) vs. Irene Aldana (14-6)

Nunes was originally set to battle Julianna Pena in the rubber match of their trilogy, however, the former champion suffered a rib injury and was knocked out of the bout. In her place is UFC veteran Aldana. However, it won’t be a tougher test for the women’s MMA GOAT.

Aldana is a battle-tested fighter who should not be underestimated, but the 35-year-old has never shown that she is an elite or unique talent that is capable of beating the best in the world. The biggest threat to Nunes in this fight is if she doesn’t come in focused and takes Aldana lightly. Don’t expect her to do that on Saturday.

  • UFC 289 odds: Nunes (-315), Aldana (+260)
  • Prediction: Nunes by TKO, Round 4

Dan Ige (16-6) vs. Nate Landwehr (17-4)

After losing two of his first three in the Octagon, Nate Landwehr has caught fire and been victorious in his last three — two being submission victories. Nevertheless, he takes a major step up in competition when he faces Dan Ige at UFC 289.

While Ige has lost four of his last six, his defeats have come to the elites of the division. Landwehr definitely won’t go away quietly, however, Ige is just a level above him in the featherweight pecking order and will show that on Saturday night when he scores a finish on “The Train.”

  • Odds: Ige (-245), Landwehr (+205)
  • UFC Prediction: Ige by submission, Round 2

Charles Oliveira (33-9) vs. Beneil Dariush (22-4-1)

Former lightweight champion Charles Oliveira has not competed since his title loss to Islam Makhachev in October of last year. Since then there has been a developing doubt about if the Brazilian can recapture his greatness over the last few years. At UFC 289 he will do so, and against a high-level foe.

Dariush is his best version heading into Saturday and is in the midst of an eight-fight win streak. However, during that hot run, he has never faced an opponent like Oliveria. While Dariush has what it takes to win this fight, if “Do Bronx” is on his game he is just a level above “Benny” and will show it on fight night.

  • Odds: Oliveira (+100), Dariush (-120)
  • UFC Prediction: Oliveira by TKO, Round 1

Jasmine Jasudavicius (8-2) vs. Miranda Maverick (11-4)

After losing two straight, Miranda Maverick has scored back-to-back wins and is trying to build momentum back to contention in the women’s flyweight division. On Saturday night she gets a legitimate test in double-tough prospect Jasmine Jasudavicius.

Jasudavicius has been solid in her three-fight UFC run (2-1), however, she hasn’t shown that she has the skills to break through to the upper echelon of the division. Maverick will be the litmus test of her abilities, but at this point in her career, she is unlikely to pass that Octagon exam against a very experienced foe like Maverick.

  • Odds: Jasudavicius (+245), Maverick (-295)
  • UFC Prediction: Maverick by unanimous decision
