Prediction: wrong Oleynik   wrong Submission   wrong Round 2  

I had him submit Travis Browne and was right, so I say he is going to submit Curtis Blaydes also.

Prediction: correct Blaydes   correct KO/TKO   correct Round 2  

i don't want either to lose here. either boa snags some brute force crank or blaydes survives and breaks him. i think blaydes has a lot of potential with his wrestling ability so i'll say he fights out of some weird positions and ends up on top. i'll kind of be hoping boa can do it again though.

Prediction: correct Blaydes   correct KO/TKO   wrong Round 3  

Blaydes looked a little lackluster in his last fight, but he still has a lot of potential with his size and strong wrestling/gnp game. He gave Ngannou some troubles in their fight, but we haven't seen to much of his overall skills on the ground. Since his comeback fight after his knee surgeries Oleinik has looked pretty good even though he's been caught and dropped with strikes or been put in some bad positions. But I'll go with him by another submission win. Probably another slick ezekiel choke as Blaydes transitions in top position.

Blaydes is the goat because ngannou couldn’t finish him the doctor had to. Blaydes by submission. Really he wins by ko unless he follows okiynyk to the ground

I love this fight, either Blaydes shows he's legit on the ground on top or Oliynyk continues his streak of crazy subs. The odds in real life has Blaydes at a -350 favorite so if you guys feel really confident in Olyinyk I suggest you put some money on him at +265 ASAP.

Blaydes is a much bigger man with a solid wrestling base, not a great match for Oliynyk.  I would love to see Oliynyk win this and make an improbable title run, but that's improbable.

I wish we had seen Oliynik in the ufc 10 years ago.
