Solid match-ups added. Bibulatov goes up to 135 to challenge the surging Bontorin in his own backyard while Max Griffin looks to put the final nail in the coffin of Alves UFC career.

Assuncao vs moraes.Assuncao, dec.


Really difficult to pick a winner. Marlon Moraes has no doubt improved since their last meeting which was close, but I feel that a) Assuncao had a bad night and b) he's just a bad style for Moraes. Marlon does great against  guys who like to clash, but Raphael isn't that guy--he's a counterfighter. A rather good one. Moraes is kind of damned if he does, damned if he doesn't. If he does fight aggressively, he likely eats something nasty and gets either finished or hurt too badly to ever fully recover. If he tries to point fight, he's not classy and fast enough to win a decision comfortably, which is is why he lost the split the first time. I think it goes to the judges again, but this time assuncao takes it 2-1. Marlon could get the finish but if TJ couldn't I don't rate his chances. I get that he kneed Sterling into the next solar system, but I think what happened there is that AJ misread a kick and ate it halfway completed--I actually don't think Moraes intended to throw a knee at all.

Oh yeah, definitely Maia by KO. His BJJ sucks, but he's probably p4p hardest one punch hitter in UFC history.

Assunção vs. Moraes II
Marlon Moraes, DEC
I've been waiting for this rematch since Bruce Buffer read off the scorecards. I honestly think that fight was Marlon's. I've been real hype about this dude for a long time, and I think he's got what it takes to be champ in the UFC. And Assunção looked sharp last time out... Sooo should be a better fight all around..

Aldo vs. Moicano
José Aldo, DEC
This fight is intriguing to me. José looked like José of old when he crushed Jeremy Stephens with that nasty body shot, and I swear, everytime I pick against Moicáno, I've always lost (except Brian Ortega).. But I do think José can win this...... IF he wants it.

Alves vs. Griffin
Max Griffin, TKO, R2
Ahhh Maaaan... Thiago has been in some serious scraps.... And has taken alotta punishment over the last few fights... I think Max Griffin could get the finish here, by R2.

Maia vs. Good
Lyman Good, TKO, R2
I think Demian's last 3 opponents laid out the blueprint to easily cruise to victory... Wrestling. Wrestling is not Lyman Good's strong suit, but... the guy is legit. I've been a big fan of his since he was the 1st Bellator Welterweight Champ. I think he can figure out a way to destroy Maia's face... Atleast that's what I wish for.

Ledet vs. Walker
Johnny Walker, TKO, R1
Johnny Walker.... Maaaan. He opened up my eyes last time out, where as I was pretty unimpressed with Ledet at Light-Heavyweight.. Gotta take Walker here

Oliveira vs. Teymur
Charles Oliveira, SUB, R1
They say styles make fights.. Well here ya go. Only Do Bronx is wayyy to much for Teymur... I Think.
