Bhullar vs. Golm
Marcelo Golm, TKO, R1
This comes down to whether or not Golm can defend takedowns, and him training at ATT gives me hope that he can, so i think hes gonna light bhullar up like a Christmas tree.

Volkan Oezdemir, TKO, R1
Interesting fight. I'm not a fan of Smith's defensive liabilities, but he is on a roll and he's a big boy. Should be fun while it lasts.

Smith vs Volkan should be devastating! Perfect match-up! Pure violence.

Smith is making fast moves. I still like volkan in this one. I dont think he can pounce where volkan is weak.

Edwards impressed me more than any Contender Series fighter thus far, and that's saying something.

There are levels to this, and Oezdemir is on another one to smith. This is where his streak ends.

Volkan, KO/ TKO within 2.

Fishgold vs Kattar.......1 of the worst match-ups this year. 


They couldn't make their hatred for new talent anymore obvious. Undefeated signee, lets put him up against 1 of our bright new stars......

I kind of get it. Kattar isn't getting any younger at 30. I feel like they are setting this up for Fishgold more than anything else.He's only lost once and that was to guy whose name is 'bum moon'.

Literally.

    Fishgold was awesome on the regional scene fighting for Cage Warriors. But imo he's not gonna do very well in the UFC. Kattar should win a clear cut UD maybe even a Tko

    Same with Paddy, I think he made the right decision staying at Cage Warriors. Both Paddy and Fishgold were probably CW's brightest and more popular fighters. I just don't see either beating any Top 20 UFC fighter.

    Predictions: 7 of 13 Winners, 1 Perfect, 390 Points   |   Tied for 1346th

    I think people are underestimating Fishgold's pressure and ground game. If Kattar can keep it standing, he'll grind out the decision with his jab and footwork. If Fishgold can pressure Kattar to the cage and get him down, I think he'll pull off the submission.
