Main event for Austin. Not sure I like the way Cowboy is trending, but this should be a war while it lasts.

I feel like Yancy is taller than 5'10".

Fancy yancy will take this by TKO. People haven't figured oput that cowboy is shot yet, and it will take this fight to prove it to everyone.

Cerrone needs some time away. He has the most fights in the UFC and has been starched horribly in two from his last three.

Cowboy is on a tough skid but these losses have come against elite competition. Medeiros is a solid top15 if he keeps going like that but can`t hang with Cowboy at this point.

So, people want to pick Yancy Medeiros? Cowboy will have had to fallen very far to lose this one...

Prediction: correct Cerrone   correct KO/TKO   wrong Round 4  

The winner of this fight should be the crowd.  Yancy ain't no Till so Cowboy will be spared the embarrassment or being so clearly outclassed.  Probably have to forget about that fight altogether as it made Cowboy look like he couldn't strike his way out of a wet paper bag when in fact he's pretty handy on the feet.  And that's what I'm banking on, two guys fighting on their feet, the way god intended, sportsmanlike.

I think Cowboy is still much better on the ground if he can take it there. Pretty sure Yancy will come out aggressive and if that's the case I could easily see Cerrone getting the takedown early and possibly finding the submission if not stall it out and get the finish later on the feet. I'll go with Cowboy by first round submission.

I think Fancy Yancy takes this. Cerrone has more fights in the UFC than anyone else on the roster--literally. He's lost his last three consecutively, two of those losses coming by KO/TKO, and he should really hang em' up. Not sure if Cowboy loses by TKO, but he might--Yancy was able to put Oliveria away who is a very similar fighter to Cowboy.

Hard to say as Yancy proved how tough he is last fight.

This should be a very good one. If Cerrone isn't done, I think he has the edge. But on the other hand Medeiros is in the best shape of his career and he's coming off a very impressive effort and win in one of the best fights and comebacks of 2017. 
Being a fan of Cowboy I have to go with him, but everything can happen. One small mistake can cost the victory.

Both are really 55ers I think cowboy takes this.  He's hungry and needs a win in a bad way
