Simon keeps a hell of a pace, and Ramos seemed to gas in the 3rd round of his last fight.

Hard for me to pick against Frankie. He's basically my favorite fighter of all time. But I think the zombie gets him in this one. I feel like a younger frankie would have recovered from the shot that Ortega dropped him with. All great chins come to an end.

I think Zombie has more opportunities to finish the fight, whereas Edgar would probably have to lay on him for 5 rounds to get the win. I'm thinking KZ by KO.

Cerrone vs. Perry
Mike Perry, TKO, R2
Who has Cowboy beat recently? Oooooh that one round slobber knocker with Yancy Medeiros.. Hopefully one more stutter, we'll see Cowboy back at Lightweight.. Liked him much better at Lightweight

Benavidez vs. Borg
Joseph Benavidez, DEC
I've never known Joe B as "beefcake"... That's a funny name for a 25'er

Pennington vs. de Randamie
Germaine de Randamie, DEC
I'm picking De Randamie, but..... I reallyyyy hope Raquel puts a beating on her, coz I still look at de Randamie as a coward.. She was literally okay with being stripped of the title... and running from a fight. Yeeaaaa, Cyborg woulda destroyed her, but she straight up ran from her.. Like you're the champ. you're supposed to fight and never back down..

Ramos vs. Gunther
Davi Ramos, SUB, R1
John Gunther.... God the UFC shoulda cut him already... Prolly one of the most painful fighters to watch.. It'll probably be less painful watching Rámos strangle him..

Cowboy can't have too many of them left in him and this one in particular will end badly. Perry is a stupid fighter who hits like a Bus, but can't do so without gassing ( as he did in the Ponzi fight). The new Jackson wink Perry will remain mediocre, because it's not the right camp for him.

They're just not the right guys to try and economize a puncher. They can't do it without turning their fighters into pointinators and a natural born puncher who tries to become a point fighter will always get outpointed  by dyed-in-the-wool pointfighters and classier strikers. A good example is the recent Lewis KO of Volkov; it it took him a while, but when he got his opening it was good night Irene. Gotta let people be who they are and figh their natural fight for better or worse.Coconut Creek or AKA would have been a better fit.

Perry will win because Cowboy eats it to take it,  is very susceptible to straight anythings and is poor against boxing-based fighters generally. Masvidal was always going to smoke him for this reason.

TL:DR:
Perry punches too hard and Cowboy has leaky defense, doesn't  do well against hard hitting boxers. Perry by TKO within two.

Frankie is done. El Bumtera steps in to get smoked by TKZ. Musical chairs between the 3 most fragile fighters on the UFC's roster. 


Between these 3 they have a combined 248 cancelled fights.

Ramos vs. Gunther
Davi Ramos, SUB, R2
Davi Ramos jest ekspertem w grapplingu i mówimy tutaj o klasie światowej. Na przeciwko Brazylijczyka staje Gunther - sympatyczny Amerykanin z dużym poczuciem humoru. Na nieszczęście Gunthera w octagonie walczy się na serio a nie na żarty, a niebieski pas BJJ to za mało, aby stawić czoła Ramosowi w parterze. Zwycięstwo Ramosa przez poddanie w 1. lub 2. rundzie.
