Rothwell vs Ivanov "in the works" for some time in March, don't know if it'll be this card but that's a fun match-up

Interesting fight. I think Ivanov will be a considerable dog but I maY take him. Granted Big Ben has no doubt fought and beaten much better guys, but he's been out two years, will be 36 and won't be on the go-go juice so y'know... I can see Baga laying one on him. He's a fair bit easier to hit than JDS. It's a more competitive fight than it would have been a few years ago.

Till vs Gamebred is a great ******* fight. I think Masvidal takes it, and will be the dog. He's actually quite underrated and i think a lot of that has to do with the Maia and captain pixie slap--err, i mean Thompson fights, which were both bad styles for him. I don't think anyone who wants to  stay in boxing range with Masvidal for full rounds is going to have a good night, and i'm pretty sure Til is gonna want to bang. I think Masvidal puts him to bed within Two.

Oezdemir vs. Reyes
Volkan Oezdemir, DEC
People need to rewatch the StPreux and Smith fights. Oezdemir is not only a (weird) KO artist, he is also a very skilled and disciplined kickboxer. His cardio will fail him in the last round as always, but he will have scored two solid rounds on Reyes, who is tough, but to wild.

Safarov vs. Saki
Saparbeg Safarov, TKO, R2
Safarov is not a good fighter. He will get his fat untalented ass kicked for a round and a half. But he is TOUGH and will survive. Saki, who is an elite stand up fighter with terrible cardio and a cracked chin, will be tired and Safarov can land whatever until TKO by exhaustion...

Till vs Masvidal


Masvidal, TKO R2.


I guess this is being set up for Till to win, but I don't think it is going to go according to plan. Masvidal is really, really dangerous in boxing range. Ask Cowboy. And that's where Woodley dropped him from. WW just isn't the right place for Till. He's ******* huge and should be fighting at MW. Masvidal is gonna put a boxing clinic on him, and get the finish. Well, that depends actually what Masvidal turns up; the guy who lets his hands go and completely outclasses his opponent, or the guy who paws a defensive jab and slings the odd out-of-range hook, ultimately getting outpointed. I guess I'll go with option A. I think Till will be looking to make a big statement on his home Turf, and that will mean coming forward and swapping punches. Unfortunately for Darren, kickboxing is terrible at middle distance, and he's going to get his bell rung. Depleted from the cut, he'll eat more. backed up against the fence until he crumples into a dehydrated pile of should-be-fighting-at-185 and the ref waves it off. Also, after the Henderson and Silva Robberies, if it goes to decision Darren will win, because England Gonna England.

Safarov said he wants to stay on the card, any ideas who they could get? My vote is for Andy Clamp or Kenneth Bergh. I’d say Stuart Austin, but I’m pretty sure he wants to stay at heavyweight.
