Predictions: 8 of 11 Winners, 3 Perfect, 505 Points   |   Tied for 174th

The fighters are weighed in (2 bad misses by Munhoz and Prezerez) and we're set for Saturday night. 

Some quality match-ups here, even if it continues the 2018 trend of weird/underwhelming main events. 


(Update: Dodson hasn't accepted the fight with Munhoz. Co-main is off.)

When I heard 49-46 I knew it was swinging Machida.

But seriously that's about the clearest 48-47 you'll get really.

Tony Weeks is a terrible judge. the world must know that.

EDIT: He's the one who scored 49-46 Machida.

Anders only has himself to blame for this, he fought inside machida's distance all night, didn't pressure with combinations, didn't check the kick.....it was his fight to lose, and lose it he did.

I easily scored the middle three rounds for Anders. That said, Anders didn’t go out and win a fight. Can’t feel bad for the guy.

see ya, fishdude.

it was a cool card. not many great fights, but barring the HW one and the Patrick-Hadzovic bout, it's was fun. Machida fight was close, I had Anders but I'm OK with the result, actually. the Moraes-Means result is pretty bad though. 

and as always, **** Yamasaki.

I picked Anders and scored it 48-47 for Machida. 49-46 wasn't right but I'm okay with the Decision. 

Means got shafted. 

Johnson/Golm was a complete snoozer. 

Mario sucked per usual. Should've stopped that fight way sooner. 

Gonna be a tough call for FOTN - probably Santos/Smith or Means/Moraes

POTN - Shevchenko and Santos or Figeueiro
