Only way Costa wins with the way he fights is to knock Yoel out and I can't see that happening dude has a granite and insane power to counter with. Soldier of God takes it with a 2nd round KO

Connor v Khabib

Predictions: 5 of 11 Winners, 0 Perfect, 280 Points   |   Tied for 1566th   |   View

I reckon either Connor wins via KO or Khabib wins via smother then Connor vs Khabib 2 will happen and the loser of the first will win then event 3 will be legit again like the first.

The only way for a fighter with 100% finish rate to beat Yoel is to finish him? You might be on to something @Itz scoop

I never said that the only way any fighter can beat Yoel is by TKO? But that is the case the way Costa fights. I don't see him defending takedowns the way whittaker did in the first Romero bout. Whittaker opened up a little more in the second fight when Romero fought at a slower pace and nearly lost and IMO that fight could have gone either way. Whittaker landed some massive shots on Romero that would have KO'd any lesser man and he shrugged them off. I don't see Costa getting through Romero. Most likely scenario is that Yoel misses weight anyway.

This card is still missing a main event. It had me thinking that obviously Woodley vs. Covington will be on this card, however the last two MSG cards had 3 title fights. Perhaps they do that again.

There are rumors that Jones is actually cleared by USADA. Perhaps they're planning a DC/Jones redux, or a Jones/Gus rematch for the vacant LHW belt.

Also with Shevcheko apparently anxious to fight, they could book her in the vacant title match against either local product Katlyn Chookagian, or perennial MSG participant Joanna Jedrzejczyk.

Rockhold vs. Weidman II
Chris Weidman, TKO, R2
Chris Weidman did lose in their first fight but Rockhold has been too hittable in his last 3 fights (even the fight against Branch). That just shows that anyone can knock out Luke Rockhold at any time. I predict first or second round knockout for Chris Weidman but most likely 2nd round in my opinion. If the fight is a decision, I would still give the fight to Weidman because he will slow down Rockhold down with body kicks like in the last fight and he will not throw stupid wheel kicks like the last fight. Rockhold's only chance of winning is if Weidman throws the wheel kick again.
