I thought Moraes should have won the first fight and I think he will win again but more decisively. He has more experience in 5 rounds and has been kicking peoples heads off. Assuncao can't whine too hard about not getting a title shot when he's fighting guys not even in the top 10 like Font and Lopez.

Anthony Hernandez, DEC
This far in the UFC, I've been unimpressed with Markus Perez. Nooo way I can take him over Hernandez.

Assuncao vs Moraes revised prediction
Moraes KO/TKO R3.



I'm not sure why I thought this was a three rounder, but I did. Possibly because I'm a 24 karat ****gibbon. Anyhow, I don't think Assuncao can beat Marlon over five. He's 36 years old, and was getting overwhelmed in the third round when they last met, due to Moraes' superior conditioning. He will get finished this time around. Moraes will, step it up midway through the second and get the KO/TKO in the third.

Borella vs. Santos
Taila Santos, TKO, R2
Very little footage of Santos defending takedowns but hypothesis is she defends them well. If it goes to the ground, she's slightly overmatched but if the fight stays on the feet, Santos wins comfortably.

They seem quite evenly matched, so that's why I thought the thing. I don't know enough about either of these fighters to give a more definitive decision.

Fight predictions


Assuncao vs Moraes
Moraes by ko rd.4
As I previously mentioned earlier on this thread I think assuncao got lucky in the first fight. 
I don't think he gets lucky again. 

Aldo vs Moicano
Aldo rd.1 Tko Liver shot!  (Yeah I called it)
The brutal accuracy in that liver shot he hit Stephens with is ingrained in my psyche.
I can't help but notice moicano being taller than aldo means his liver is gonna line up nicely. 


Maia vs Good
Good rd.1 ko
Good really impressed me in his last fight. 
Maia really depressed me in his last three fights.
 

Frota vs Sousa
Frota tko rd.1
Sousa is basically an atom weight with no choice but to fight at straw weight. 
Combine that with frota missing by seven pounds and I just think she's too big for her.
Frota takes her down and grinds out a win. And just for thd record
I think sousa is a little beast who is gonna be around for a long time.

Alves vs Griffin
Griffin by decision
If Griffin plays this like he did against perry with point fighting from the outside he cruises to the easy win. 

Albini vs Rozenstruik
Albini rd.1 ko
Albini is overdue against a guy who is use to crushing soup cans not fighting fighters.

Oliveira vs Teymur
Teymur by decision
These guys had real heat during the weigh ins. This one is gonna be fireworks. 
I think teymur is the better tougher fighter. Guess we'll see. 

Ledet vs Walker
Walker by ko in rd.2
I think ledet is getting fed to the wolves here to heat up walkers hype train.

Nurmagomedov vs Ramos
Nurmagomedov by decision
I think nurmy wrestles him against the cage and to the ground for three rounds straight 
and grinds out another split decision.

Predictions: 6 of 13 Winners, 2 Perfect, 365 Points   |   Tied for 1563rd   |   View

Assunção vs. Moraes II
Marlon Moraes, DEC
i hope this is fun and not a typical assuncao fight, either way i think marlon can finally re-capture his pre-ufc hype.

Aldo vs. Moicano
José Aldo, DEC
i guess i feel like aldo's tdd is still top notch and that he isn't in danger of getting clipped too bad here. that seems like a recipe for an aldo decision.

Maia vs. Good
Lyman Good, TKO, R2
this pick isn't gonna be popular, but i'm gonna say lyman stuff the td attempts and lands good straight shots that hurt demian.

Oliveira vs. Teymur
David Teymur, DEC
initially i wanted to say that teymur isn't ready for this level of competition yet, but he actually has the better wins in recent years, including 2 capable wrestlers. i'll go against the grain here and say david can stuff sloppy entries and keep his distance in between landing.

Ledet vs. Walker
Johnny Walker, TKO, R2
ledet kinda strikes me as a dave herman type. lots of potential without much grooming or guidance. easy to get swept up in walker flattening khalil, but i don't wanna overestimate him. i'll say he catches ledet feeling comfortable though and gets another big finish.

Souza vs. Frota
Livia Renata Souza, SUB, R1
this one might be fun. frota seems like she walks through some chicks, but livia isn't a pushover and is gonna be willing to trade if need be.

Hernandez vs. Perez
Anthony Hernandez, TKO, R2
i remember perez looking very tired in his fights so i'll run with fluffy without much faith in dana's show hype.

Borella vs. Santos
Mara Romero Borella, DEC
i'm still skeptical of santos' record, only her last opponent was any decent and that girl's competition was spotty at best. i guess the question is if mara's past ko losses are an indicator of her chin. i'll guess she can survive early bursts to secure later rounds.

Alves vs. Griffin
Max Griffin, DEC
i want to think that alves is still able to beat someone on the fringe of employment, but at this point i have to let him prove it. hopefully he can get in max's face and make it a war.

Albini vs. Rozenstruik
Júnior Albini, TKO, R2
albini hasn't shown a questionable chin yet so i gotta think he can find a way around someone this green.

de Freitas vs. Colares
Geraldo de Freitas, DEC
i don't really have a good reason for this pick, i just seem to like geraldo's resume better.

Ramos vs. Nurmagomedov
Ricardo Ramos, DEC
i'm thinking ramos can dictate where the fight takes place and frustrate said from range.

Bibulatov vs. Bontorin
Magomed Bibulatov, DEC
hard not see the hype in bibulatov, but rogerio's resume is pretty good actually i think he makes this closer than expected.

Maia vs. Good
Lyman Good, DEC
I definitely think this is a bold upset call, but with Maia bring 41 and on a 3 fight losing streak I’m going out on a limb and taking good despite his lack of competition on the level of Maia’s. Stay tuned for a Rd.1 Maia submission haha

Ledet vs. Walker
Johnny Walker, TKO, R2
Anyone who saw walkers last fight is taking him. Seems like the normal setup to give walker a chance at building even more momentum

Borella vs. Santos
Mara Romero Borella
Borella is the more experienced fighter, and with santos only having fought twice since 2016 I have a feeling this will be a tough step up for her
