Jones vs. Gustafsson II
Alexander Gustafsson, DEC
FINALLY!! Like 50 years late... We all know what were getting with Gus. He's definitely one of my top 5 all time Light-Heavyweight's. The question is, what kinda Jon Jones are we gonna get. I watched the 1st one sooo many times, and I still think Gus won that fight. Gus hasn't been VERY ACTIVE, But compared to Jones, he's been extremely active. I hafta go with Gus here. Besides. I kinda can't stand Jon Jones and how he always gets away with ****. IF ANYONE ELSE did the **** he has over the last 5 years, they wouldn't have gotten the same treatment. That's some bunk bullshat.

Justino vs. Nunes
Cristiane Justino, TKO, R3
Maaaan.... Is this fight really gonna happen!!? It's like a ****** dream fight. ****a super fight. There's not much that needs to be said about this matchup. It's gotta be the BEST chick fight ever put together. Like I can't even think of a close 2nd place, it's that ******* goood! There's a reason Cris Cyborg is one of the most dangerous and feared fighters all time....... Male or female.

Condit vs. Chiesa
Carlos Condit, TKO, R2
This is a strange matchup,... but Ooookk. Carlos Condit is in my top 5 favorite ever. In any weight class. I'm just not sure if he's AS MOTIVATED as he once was. All his performances Since the Robbie Lawler Title Fight (which I thought he won) have been a little lackluster. There's Nooo questioning Condit's Heart, His toughness, His Techniques, His Style, there's NOTHING to question about that... It's the motivation I'm not sure of. But I'm still taking him here. Chiesa isn't as goood as the number beside his name. it's that simple. Besides, it's about dammmn time Condit gets a win

Latifi vs. Anderson
Ilir Latifi, TKO, R1
The Sledgehammer is a perfect frickin name for Latifi. Sucha short **** man. Annnnd it's actually kinda crazy, Anderson is 7" taller, but only 3" reach advantage. It shouldn't matter tho. With Latifi being 20 fights into his career, he's prolly been the shorter guy, both height and reach in every single fight. I'm expecting Latifi to absolutely manhandle Anderson and beat him to a pulp

Mendes vs. Volkanovski
Alexander Volkanovski, DEC
Maaaan... I've been sooo excited for this exact fight.. I've been wanting to see Volkanovski vs Mendes since before Mendes was reinstated. Coz Volkanovski had been absolutely crushing ppl. He's done it to everyone they've put in front of him, and always wondered how he'd fair against Mendes or a Mirsad Bektiċ. I got what I was wishing for. Now we get to see if Volkanovski is a forreal title challenger or just a top 10 contender. Mendes HAS BEEN CRACKED before, remember what Frankie did to him before his suspension?

Arlovski vs. Harris
Walt Harris, TKO, R2
I honestly see this being a badd bad nite for Arlovski. I see The Big Ticket doing some big damage here... Veryyy easily.

Anderson vs. Zingano
Cat Zingano, DEC
I can see why this fight is pretty much split right down the middle.. The perfect example of a coin flip fight... But I just think Zingano has the edge in the wrestling department and she'll use it to grind out another decision.

Yan vs. Andrade
Petr Yan, DEC
I'm sooo pumped for everyone to getta glimpse of Petr Yan. Since they like putting him on fight pass. He was one of the debuts that I couldn't wait for and he hasn't disappointed me yet. Like this kid is the future of the Bantamweight division..

Penn vs. Hall
Ryan Hall, DEC
Maaaan... Why does the UFC looove cramming **** down your throat like this!? Can someone please gimme a reason why? Like just why?

Kelleher vs. Jackson
Brian Kelleher, DEC
Now if we make it to fight night and this fight is still together, I'd be shocked. I believe it's the 3rd or 4th time these 2 were supposed to fight (once in the UFC, once or twice in the regionals), and everytime something happens. But I understand why the match makers keep trying. It's a fun fight on paper, and thinking about them going at it.... Plus there's bad blood from the past.. All the reason to book the fight

Wood vs. Ewell
Nathaniel Wood, DEC
Another fantastic Bantamweight Scrap... Ppl were hating on the Wood vs. Duquesnoy fight, which woulda been a banger, sooo I hope you're happy with this fight. Should still be fun..

Hall vs. Lewis
Uriah Hall, TKO, R2
What a HUGE step up in competition for Lewis. Wow. I mean, from what I've seen from Bevon Lewis, he's ready for the UFC, despite only having 6 fights. But is he ready to literally be thrown to the wolves and facing a top 15 in the world kinda guy... I guess we'll see, but it'll be a fun fight. The fight pass prelims Maaaan... wayyy better than the FS1 prelims. Just another dig at FOX again, I guess...

Millender vs. Bahadurzada
Curtis Millender, DEC
This fight veryyy well may be the sleeper fight of the card... It should be a fire fight from bell to bell. My only worry is if Millender can withstand the power of Bahadurzada's strikes. He hits like a heavyweight...

Jones vs. Gustafsson II
Alexander Gustafsson, DEC
its funny how they have fought almost the same number of fights since junes vs alex 1, but here is the prediction. alexander has more improvements since their fight, it doesnot matter that jones has a russian boxer as a friend, jones boxind defence consists in eyepokes and having his arms straight in front oponent. Alexander will go against that with his reach and the aproach of the ufc against eyepokes. both no easy to ko ands alex gonna win. it means ies a desition win for gustafson.

Millender vs. Bahadurzada
Millender, TKO, R2

Is it just me or is this a big step down in competition for Millender. Siyar hits hard but lacks a cardio. He is going to get winded and be prone to a strike that will drop him.

Was Jones on PED's all these years?

Predictions: 6 of 13 Winners, 1 Perfect, 340 Points   |   Tied for 1791st   |   View

Normally I would've picked Jones but with all the failing Doping tests, its hard to say whether he was or wasn't on PED's. I'm going to assume he was, and now that he's off them (As far as we know) I have Gus by decision.

That’s definitely one of the top three fights on the card for me, Bruce. Yan is one of the most exciting signings the ufc has had in a while, and he’s a major threat in the 135 lb weight class. He’s yet to dissapoint, and I’m excited to see how he fares against the top 10 of the division!

@Cesar1987

What? Hard to say if he was or was not? *** you talking about. He was caught 3 times. It very clear he was on PED's. He dam lucky the first failure was pre USADA so they overlooked the fact he had T levels several times under what he should have (which means he was cycling).  It just a straight fact Jon Jones took PED's. People are kidding themselves to pretend otherwise. It was very obvious even form the hearing how corrupt UFC and athletic committee is. Director was literally acting as Jon Jones lawyer, it was utterly disgusting.

Also everyone should note how Jon Jones tune has change on going to heavy weight.

Well if you read my whole comment, I said that I'm going with the fact that he WAS on PED's all these years, that's why I'm picking Gustaffson to win this fight.

Jon Jones, TKO, R1
I would say Gustafson would have the edge because Jones has been laid off for over a year but Gustafson hasn't fought in over a year either...So Ring Rust Jones Versus Ring Rust Gus...I think Jones takes it.

Justino vs. Nunes
Cristiane Justino, TKO, R2
Mama Silverback Versus Baby Silverback. I am looking forward to this one.

Condit vs. Chiesa

It bums me out that Condit the man that almost beat out GSP once for a title is now staring at over 4 losses in a row :(

Penn vs. Hall

BJ must be hurting for money. One of the greats he hasn't won a fight since he beat Matt Hughes 8 years ago who was also looking at retirement at the time.

Why are Conference calls still a thing in the UFC? Lame as ****. 

I can't remember a time in Prize-Fighting history that somebody said "ah man, did you here what this fighter said on the conference call!" 


I might spend way too much damn time on Tapology staring at my computer but 1 thing you'll never catch me doing is sitting around listening to people talk on a phone. What in the actual fook.

Watching people online defend Jon Jones not taking the VADA test is just pathetic. Luckily I have not seen that **** here, but other places it ridiculous.  I saw people taking Jones lawyer and Management version of the story as fact. It like how gullible can people be.  I really wish UFC would stop pretending he the goat. If he the goat why is he constantly getting caught taking PEDs every time he fights or schedule to fight cormier. It clear Jones is not confident enough to beat  cormier with out chemical assistance. Also notice how Jones wants no part of heavy weight anymore.  I hope Gus beats the **** out of Jones, just so UFC will stop blowing smoke up everyone ass with jones.
