Cowboy going back to 155. Tough fight.

It's a tough fight for Cowboy even if they didn't have to cut any weight. Cowboy will be much taller which will open up the body-shots for Taisumov imo. Or I could see this going like Khalidov vs Barnatt, in terms of style, size & range anyway. 

I'll never completely count Cowboy out of a fight though...I can see him hitting a flying-triangle or some ****..

Pretty favorable matchup for Taisumov. Cowboy hasn't been cutting to 155 and can't take punches like he used to.

I fully believe Taisumov is one of the best lightweights around. And I think when he starts getting these big name/high ranked opponents that will be made very clear. I don't think Cowboy can take his power, and I'm happy that Taisumov is getting such a huge opportunity.

This is going to be my first time picking Cerrone, and I only do it because I feel bad for him.

Prediction: Cerrone  |  Submission  |  Round 2

I think Cowboy might be my most picked fighter here at 12-3,i'll probably lean toward Cowboy idk,footage would help.Mairbek is on a 5 fight streak since losing to Prazeres with some good explosive performances but not over a single guy anywhere in the same ballpark as Cowboy.His best win ever is probably Alan Patrick or Borys Mankowski lol.Quick powerful style is good vs Cowboy I don't disagree with that but i'll probably have Cowboy winning.

Also,I don't think I care about the weight cut,Cerrone is like the ultimate professional,i'm sure he'll do it right (unless he literally just can't) but I think he'll be fine and doesn't get out cardio'd.

I 100% agree with Mike. Taisumov is definitely one of the best lightweights, and he's a NIGHTMARE matchup for Cowboy. I don't see this lasting very long.

I think Cowboy is going to get messed up.
