Millender vs. Bahadurzada
Curtis Millender, DEC
Good matchmaking. Siyar can be hit but has never been KO'D. Millender has the tools to be the first. However Siyar may be able to grapple and gound & pound his way into a submission. It will be a very tough fight. I have to lean to Millender to find a way to win by decision with about a 25% chance he gets a late finish

I guess Jones gets a free pass to fight after testing hot for oral AAS since cancelling another event is bad for business.

I've sacrificed 2 goats, 1 wild boar, 3 Swedish Ikea Office Desktops and my neighbours annoying cat to the Mighty Odin and all the other Viking gods of Valhalla that Gus puts on a fantastic performance and finishes Jones  in devastating fashion! I lost respect for Jones after the 2nd DC fight and failure. Can only give a guy so many chances! So "LETS ****** GO GUS!"

Nunes submits Cyborg in 3. Condit KO'S Chiesa and hot prospects Petr Yan, Curtis Millender and Nathaniel Wood continue to rise up the ranks! That's my perfect UFC232!

Cat Zingano, DEC
We will see if Anderson learned from her last fight. Zingano will put her to the test. I like this one to go the distance and Cat grinding out the win.

Millender vs. Bahadurzada
Siyar Bahadurzada, DEC
Siyar offers a change of pace from Curtis' last two opponents: instead of covering up whilst backing straight towards the fence, he will sometimes sidestep, pivot or stand ground and use head movement for counters.

Jon Jones, DEC
Cuz Jones obviously micro-dosed.

Condit vs. Chiesa
Mike Chiesa, SUB, R2
Carlos Condit's takedown defense is suspect, and Chiesa can punish you for not defending against them.

Latifi vs. Anderson
Ilir Latifi, TKO, R1
I don't trust Corey Anderson's ability to counter strike someone bull-rushing in.

Glad we got through weigh ins without any real issue. Hopefully nothing else comes up in the next 24 hours. I'm really looking forward to this entire card despite all that's gone on with Jones and moving it to LA. Lot's of really good fights all over the card. Any my boy Condit is fighting! He's going to show he's not done yet against Chiesa.

Card is so stacked that the main-event is the least intriguing match-up on the card! imo this is actually a very weak PPV. All the studs are on the Fight Pass & FS1 prelims.
