Prediction Comments

Chan vs. Ayoub
Djamil Chan, TKO, R2
So far, Chan has been a little underwhelming to me. He's beaten the guys he should've beat, and looks good doing it. But once he's put in front of someone you could call 50/50, or better.... He faulters. Everytime. And that's the problem for me. I'd consider this scrap against Ayoub a 50/50 fight. So I should expect him to trip up again. But the thought of a possible 3 fight losing streak, sounds awful. Enough to motivate him, maybe..... Maybe not.

Hlongwa vs. Smith
Mzwandile Hlongwa, TKO, R1
I'll take the Kamaru Usman lookin ************ because the other guy has a dumbass tribal tattoo... No reeeaally. Dude's lost 6 straight. Finished in 4 of them, all in R1, and 3x by KO. Hlongwa finished all his wins by KO, 3/4 inside 5 minutes. Yes. Somebody's getting KO'd.

Ruart vs. Mané
Kevin Ruart, DEC
I have no clue. I hate to go off the 1 time I saw Mané when he got finished by Alen Amedovski in :12 @ Bellator 211. Was that just one of those quick, flash KO's, or does he really have a porcelain chin, (Yes. Even worse than a glass chin)

Ndebele vs. Cleary
Nkosi Ndebele, TKO, R2
Ian Cleary ...... 🤢🤢🤢

Fogg vs. Culverwell
Dimitri Fogg, SUB, R2
Wellllll.... Somebody's gotta win
