Prediction Comments

Fiorot v Bueno Silva
Manon Fiorot, TKO, R2
Bueno Silva's loss to Maryna Moroz is telling.  Fiorot's style is like Moroz's, only more ferocious.  I don't think Bueno Silva has time to execute her submission game against this fast twitch fury.

Volkanovski v Ortega
Ortega, TKO, R4
Ortega's boxing continues to improve.  He's often sharpened by adversity.  I think Volk takes the lead early.  Ortega comes from behind to get the finish.  He could finish it by sub, or he could finish it bigger by TKO.  I think he takes the belt in the biggest way.

Blaydes v Rozenstruik
Jairzinho Rozenstruik, TKO, R2
It'll be a rough first round, a horizontal first round, and then they'll be back on their feet.  Rozenstruik TKO.

Moraes v Dvalishvili
Merab Dvalishvili, DEC
A clinic on why grapplers, with a modicum of standup, can always have the last word, to the disappointment of casuals everywhere.  

Diaz v Lawler
Nick Diaz, TKO, R3
Who said this fight was going to the ground?!  Diaz wants to win in Lawler's world, and Lawler is a brawler.  Diaz will fight be behind the jab... and a ton of **** talk... because of course he will.  Will Lawler take the bait?

Fiorot vs. Bueno Silva
Manon Fiorot, DEC
Fiorot is very good, Silva is tough and very powerful but I think she's just tailor made for Fiorot in this one. Silva does plod forward and her striking defence isn't all that, she just relies on overpowering her opponents in the clinch. Fiorot is gonna be very hard to get a hold off, her footwork is very good and she's much fasterr, Fiorot's combos are gonna land on Silva all night long and I think she's gonna win this fight in dominant fashion
