I'm fully expecting to get off work tonight and see that DC/Jones is off. I'm not getting my hopes up this time.

I hope it is not off.  I heard that DC made weight now.

I'm kinda rooting or Oezdemir although I have no problem with Manuwa, Lawler/Cowboy would only be an upset if it was boring, no real rooting interest in Cyborg/Tonya but an upset there would be nice as well, and Maia winning would be a great feel-good story but I would trade all of those outcomes for a DC win because it would be great for the sport, the LHW division, and karmic justice.

Skelliher, how dare you reference a great line from the greatest story if it's about Jones. The only character in LOTR he would be fit to play would be Sauron or the leader of the ring-wraiths/king of Angmar which would be fitting because both were finished off by hobbits or "undersized competitors" :D

Manuwa vs. Oezdemir

Volkan Oezdemir is going to pull off what looks like a fluky finish to the untrained eye but it’s no fluke. Oezdemir will look like a GOAT because he is the GOAT. I predicted that he will be the LHW UFC Champion and I have no reason to think otherwise.

Lawler vs. Cerrone

It’s going to be a war! A cold war! No one’s going to do ****!

Cyborg vs. Other Gal

I see a lot of people picking Cyborg by default without doing any research. Well guess what? I’m picking the other gal and I haven’t done any research either. Other Gal 50-45.

Woodley vs. Maia

I’m not racist but I’m going to pick against Woodley. I see Demian Maia knocking out Tyron Woodley in the very first round in the very first second.

Cormier vs. Jones II

In my prediction, I’m going to assume this fight is going to happen tonight. I may have divine powers gifted from God but even I don’t know if someone is going to **** up in the clutch.

The world wants to see Jon Jones get knocked out. It would be the most epic outcome of all possible outcomes. Why would God not make that happen?

So let’s think logically. DC could maybe win by decision via wrestling but you risk burning too much energy especially against someone like Jones. Jon Jones has a 12.5” reach advantage. DC could try to going inside and box but you risk going blind from eye pokes. So how is DC going to win?

By kicking.

Daniel Cormier occasionally throws high kicks. It’s not perfect but it works.

 

   

Remember, DC trains with ?kick Rockhold and spinning **** Cain. DC’s kicking game has improved. I think we’re going to see something special.

In fact, we’re going to see the greatest performance from DC since Wonder Woman.

Late in the fifth, I predict that Daniel Cormier will run off the wall like a ninja and land the GREATEST head kick of all time! IT IS ALL OVER! Good beats evil. ***** beats ****. Crack is whack. All is well in the world.

@WorstPredictionMan That's all fine and dandy, but how do you explain Curran KO 2 and Shelton sub 1??? Will the first one involve twerking?

Can't wait for the fights tonight. The fightpass prelims aren't anything to rave about, though I like the Brooks/Shelton fight quite a bit, but after that it should be pure violence with the potential for just utter craziness at any moment.

Nobody wanted to accept Volkan's box of chocolates at the weigh-ins so I hope he wins based on that alone.
