Holloway vs. Poirier II
Max Holloway, DEC
Odds are about right. Picks are off. Max has never faced Edgar, Mendes, Volkanovski, or any of the rising young stars so imo talk of him having cleaned out FW is very premature and remind me again who has finished Dustin with accumulated strikes? Aldo might still have been a better striker than Dustin when Max fought him but his cardio has always been suspect so I think this is Max's most legitimate striking threat since Conor.

Gastelum vs. Adesanya
Kelvin Gastelum, SUB, R2
Even though there are still legit questions about Adesanya's true ability to face high-level, well-rounded fighters at an elite level (so no, kickboxing doesn't count), he is the rightful favorite. Even if Kelvin comes in at his best, Adesanya still has a great chance to win IF he is truly ready BUT Kelvin is being vastly under-rated imo. Official Nostra-Dumbass Prediction: Kelvin hits a quick reactive td midway thru the 2nd and is ready when Adesanya uses his athleticism rather than technique to stand and latches onto a lighting-quick RNC like a rattlesnake and a python.

Anders vs. Rountree
Eryk Anders, TKO, R2
Hedging my bets here, so to speak. Obviously either guy can win by KO but unless Rountree has vastly shored up his ground game, the td shouldn't be too hard for Anders to hit and either work BJJ or G'n'P to tire Khalil out which should lead to a finish be it sub or tko

Jouban vs. Grant
Alan Jouban, DEC
Probably be a better fight if Grant won

Krylov vs. St. Preux II
Nikita Krylov, TKO, R2
Not this time

Turner vs. Frevola
Matt Frevola, SUB, R3
Upset special

Griffin vs. Imadaev
Zelim Imadaev, DEC
Picks seem a little too one-sided imo

Salmon vs. Taha
Boston Salmon, TKO, R3
Strong sleeper FOTN possibilities

Jackson vs. Soukhamthath
Montel Jackson, TKO, R2
Would LOVE to be wrong about who wins

Botelho vs. Mueller
Poliana Botelho, DEC
I think Botelho wins but there's no way she's 3 inches taller after seeing the weigh-ins. Did I miss some high heels?

Costa vs. Davis
Brandon Davis, DEC
Maybe Brandon Davis is no world beater but he's a proven commodity imo while the other guy is 4-0 vs. a combined record of absolute **** and his amateur career was over 4 years ago and only one of his opponents is still active.

Muhammad vs. Millender
Belal Muhammad, TKO, R3
Hard to say. Belal follows more than he pressures & all his wrestling is cage wrestling. That's why I have to pick Milender. Maybe Belal makes it a super slow paced grinding fight, low volume. Because of the stylistic struggles i'm going to pick Milender to do what he normally does.

So anyway, I was online shopping for fish tank ornaments yesterday, and I found this. Probably one of the best failures of a chinese manufacturer to interpret what the western market wants that I have ever seen. I had to waste 13 GBP on it. ******* hilarious.
