This is a bad bad fight for Johny ... I think he's at the point where he doesn't care anymore ... he's not in it but just doesn't "know" how to retire.

Meh, I thought he beat Magny, the Lombard fight was close but I wouldn't say he doesn't care yet.

Hope Hendricks loses but Borrachinha got taken down by Bamgbose, I wouldn't be that confident in him yet.

Have seen comments from people who are talking about Borrachinha as the next big thing at MW. He reminds me of Erick Silva, and I think his UFC run will play out pretty similarly. I honestly hope I'm wrong. But I don't know why people are so confident in him here. I get that Hendricks has fallen off quite a bit, but Borra was getting taken down by ******' Oluwale Bangbus. Hendricks could easily take this fight.

I just can't bring myself to pick a man that was at a speed disadvantage against Tim Boetsch. Paulo did seem to gas hard in that second round against Bamgbose though.

It all depends on whether Hendricks is hungry enough for the win.  No pun intended.

If Johny goes right for the wrestling he should win this. I really like this new kid but the fact is he hasn't face anywhere close to as good as Johny competition-wise or against as good of a wrestler.

Would be surprised if Johny manages to get past Round 2, let alone beat Paulo.

Hendricks might beat Borrachinha, but he won't beat anyone in the middleweight top ten. Hendricks does not belong at 185.  Period.

What are the odds that Hendricks misses weight? I really want to pick Hendricks here, but I just never know where his head is at. Gonna go with Borrachinha by tko round 1.
