Sanchez vs. Gall
Mickey Gall, SUB, R2
While Diego could take Gall down and win a decision through top control, the more likely outcome involves Gall snatching on to Diego's recklessness at some point and becoming the first guy to submit Diego in his mma career.

Lawler vs. Askren
Robbie Lawler, TKO, R1
If Askren gets him down, Askren by decision. If Askren doesn't, he will find himself on the end of devastating body kicks and uppercuts. Luis Santos showed the vulnerabilities in Askren's defense in their no-contest. If Askren is sharp, I think a decision victory is likely. However, Lawler is the toughest opponent of Askren's career and askren is coming off a layoff. One mistake may be all Lawler needs. I'll go with Lawler to catch Askren as he reaches in for the single.

Perez vs. Stamann
Cody Stamann, DEC
Alejandro has probably performed less impressively than his UFC record would suggest with a series of close wins over mid-tier bantamweights. He will have his hands full with the wrestling of Cody Stamann who has possibly the best power double leg in the division with the cardio to keep threatening it well into the later rounds. Cody should control this fight for a clear decision win.

Cirkunov vs. Walker
Misha Cirkunov, SUB, R1
Misha moved to Vegas prior to his fight against Cummins. His BJJ black belt is put to use often in his fights with his guillotine and arm-triangle seeming to be favorite finishers. His judo base gives him a variety of takedowns to choose from. This is a massive step up for Walker. Misha's chin has failed him in the past and there's certainly a chance Walker touches it here and gets his hand raised. In pre-fight interview, walker stated that he'd like to prolong the fight a bit to showcase his skills. I don't think he'll have the opportunity with Misha wading through some dangerous strikes, possibly even getting wobbled, before getting Walker to the ground and choking him out.

Askren wins by easy decision. Why u ask? Because Lawler sucks. lawler always sucked. Lawler is always going to suck. Remember when he was a steroid using juice monkey and nick diaz put him in his place. Remember when Woodley destroyed Lawler? It'll be like that tonight only exchange the knockout for a smothering lay and pray decision. And oh yeah. Lawler sucks!

Jones vs. Smith
Jon Jones, TKO, R3
Anthony Smith has plenty of TKO knock outs and Jones isn't immune to being K/O'd. Get him on the ground, wrestle, impose your will, win the fight with TKO or Sub - Quickly [Only see this fight go max 3 rounds]

Woodley vs. Usman
Tyron Woodley, TKO, R4
round 4 strategic win, counter punch ko

Lawler vs. Askren
Ben Askren, DEC
Good fight, I think the wrestling is too strong for Lawler to compete. May get lucky strikes if Ben does something stupid trying to collapse inside for a single or double. Ben is going to want to strike too, but Idk if that is so smart vs Lawler even if he's been out of the cage

Stephens vs. Magomedsharipov
Jeremy Stephens, TKO, R3
Zabits head is an easy target, like playing golden eye with DK mode on. Big ol baloon head. Jeremy "Who's that guy" Stephens is actually a really excellent striker and a brawler. Avoid Zabits excellent wrestling and get him to try to out aborb damage, which Stephens he can't.

Cirkunov vs. Walker
Johnny Walker, TKO, R1
avoid getting subed by Mishas good ground game .

Cifers/Viana up first. I think these are both fairly skilled SW's. I went with Viana by sub/2.

Indeed, you can't normally see the pieces of the octagon that clearly like that. Something isn't right for sure.
