Jon Fitch and Yushin Okami will square off in the main event of Saturday night’s World Series of Fighting 24 in a battle of welterweights looking to get on track.

Set for Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut, the main card airs live on NBC Sports Network.

Along with Fitch-Okami, WSOF heavyweight champion Blagoy Ivanov defends his title against Derrick Mehmen and two fighters meet for the inaugural flyweight title.

Check out fight-by-fight predictions for the main card, along with quick picks on the prelims, below:

MAIN CARD (NBC Sports Network/8:30 p.m. ET)

Welterweight: Jon Fitch vs. Yushin Okami

Prediction: Fitch just appears to be a little more well-rounded than Okami, but the extra time off could hamper him a bit.

Jon Fitch over Yushin Okami via decision

WSOF Heavyweight Championship
Blagoy Ivanov (c) vs. Derrick Mehmen

Prediction: Ivanov just might be the best heavyweight not currently signed to the UFC’s roster. Mehmen has a chance, but he’ll have to strike early.

Blagoy Ivanov over Derrick Mehmen via first round TKO

Lightweight: Nick Newell vs. Tom Marcellino

Prediction: Newell has had a huge week, appearing on several talk shows and promoting the fight. While he isn’t included in the upcoming light tourney, he could make a statement here.

Nick Newell over Tom Marcellino via first round submission

Light Heavyweight: Vinny Magalhaes vs. Matt Hamill

Prediction: Magalhaes and Hamill have been scheduled before, and one would have to believe the former Ultimate Fighter runner-up has the upper-hand.

Inaugural WSOF Flyweight Championship
Magomed Bibulatov vs. Donavon Frelow

Prediction: Expect fireworks right from the start between these two flyweights, as they will bring the excitement.
