Prediction Comments

Kamara vs. Jones
Abdul Kamara, DEC
kamara is a beast

Torres vs. Ivy
Dimitre Ivy, DEC
torres is kinda ass

De La Cruz vs. Rodriguez
Alex De La Cruz, DEC
two good flyweight wrestlers coming from college wrestling backgounds. De la cruz has beaten really good comp thus far & is also on the sauce. Rodriguez is a good wrestler & has powerful standup, but he is really small for 125; de la cruz is gonna have a huge size advantage

Payne vs. Despaigne
Robelis Despaigne, TKO, R1
I dont imagine despagnie is on the regional scene much longer. He is very old for someone whos only 2-0 but, he is cuban and also a heavyweight, so we can cut him some slack. In fact, his genetics are unlike anything ive seen in a heavyweight. For starters, he is a behemoth, standing at 6"7 with an 86 inch reach. What really makes despagine stand out is his combat sports background. Robelis comes from a TKD background, having won the bronze medal at the olympic games. Now, TKD is not a gret base for mma, but being a heavyweight, it gives him access to crazy athleticism & all sorts of flashy strikes and movements. Its very rare to see a heavyweight like this; i imagine a few more wins and he in the ufc. I just hope fury doesnt make him fight anthony cassar; hw needs prospects.

Steele vs. Pecero
Kody Steele, SUB, R1
steele is a ******* beast. Hes a veyr high level bjj practioner but he has learned how to strike. Kody has some veyr powerful hands. He should run through this can easily; expect him to be in the ufc by next year.

Regino vs. Elliott
Ezra Elliott, SUB, R1
elliott was in suga seans corner when he won the belt. He has been at the mma lab for his whole career. Ezra is a really good grappler; def looking out for him.

Let’s get despaigne in the ufc. He is one hell of a prospect 

Crazy 4 second ko
