Liz carmouche by way of easy victory. She's been at the top of the division since the beginning. 
just can't jump the final level to champion, but she's still levels above pudilova.

@cartell I was basing my prediction on level of skill but of course anything can happen. 
@hyrm jans is going to hold santos against the cage for 15 minutes I wouldn't call that a step up I'll call it a boring fight. Bad match making as usual from the ufc.

As wild as the his last fight was, it didn’t inspire a lot of confidence in me for Santos. I think Jan takes him out.

Wow, yet ANOTHER Russian on this card, this is crazy. Apparently UFC has a problem  with distinguishing where Prague is located(hint: nowhere near Russia) and keeps serving us Russian talent. 

Except for Poland, they have not touched the Central Europen market(when it comes to talent), so I thought this would be a perfect chance to sing some locals from Czechia, Slovakia, Austria, Slovenia etc. I am not completely giving up my hope, but the event is six(6) weeks away so they better hurry. Only 6 fights left to fill.

I don't know why you're surprised the UFC always does this. Whenever they go to China they put Koreans,japanese fighters too.Or like Argentina and Chile cards last year had all Mexicans and Brazilians.

They should try harder to put more local fighters on the card but I guess they can only do so much.

Dodson sucks anyways with one knee or two. Easy jump up the rankings for yan.

Yup, the event got sold out way too fast and there's literally no pressure to add any local (Czech) fighter anymore. We got quite ****** over this one, I would say. Don't get me wrong.. all the announced fights look very good to me, but there's one Czech and that's not very much. haha 
That might even be the least local fighters on card in the history of Fight Nights events, I'm afraid. Still almost six weeks left but I ain't giving it much chances tbh.

Keep your hopes up. Five more slots to fill on this card.
