Predictions: 10 of 13 Winners, 6 Perfect, 675 Points   |   10th Place   |   View

The fighters are weighed in and we're set for a solid night of fights on Big FOX.

Will Weidman break the streak? Will Gastelum become an insta-contender at 185 lbs? Will Elkins continue to defeat men he has no right to beat?

I still had it 29-28 Villante honestly. But he was dead tired after 1 round after pretty much destroying Cummings, ***. 

And both these men are ranked. Light Heavyweight might be worse than Heavyweight right now.

Bermudez takes rd 3 but don't know if it was enough. Rd 2 was close so who knows.

It's crazy that Elkins wins so much considering he is almost always the slower fighter with less power. He wins on grit and hard work.

So 10-10? Weidman controlled the majority of the round, but Gastelum owned the most meaningful moment of the round.

Weidman controlled the whole round, Kelvin steals it in the last seconds.

To me that's 10-9 Weidman, but wouldn't be surprised if that one punch won the round.
