Yeah that is a very strange match up putting Arman against Islam. Kill off a good prospect or damage a potential top 5-10's reputation. Crazy matchmaking

This is a really difficult card to predict, there are just too many unknowns.  If anyone is able to nail this one down, I will take my hat off to them.

Pavlovich vs. Golm
Sergey Pavlovich, TKO, R1
Russian Pharma

Shevchenko vs. Modafferi
Antonina Shevchenko, DEC
It should be in the EARLY EARLY PRELIMS.

Jotko vs. Amedovski
Krzysztof Jotko, DEC
Jotko 2.0

Aliev vs. Nakamura
Sultan Aliev, DEC
Aliev is looking like Russian version of Luke Rockhold so no brainer.

Yakovlev vs. da Silva
Alexander Yakovlev, TKO, R2
Too much pressure on da Silva. Yakovlev gonna put the show for the сволочь.

Tybura vs. Abdurakhimov
Marcin Tybura, DEC
It can go either way.

Antigulov vs. Oleksiejczuk
Michał Oleksiejczuk, TKO, R1
I won't be suprised if Antigulov take neck of Polish boy.

Evloev vs Woo Choi 
Movsar via whatever he wants, whenever he wants it
Woo Woo realistically doesn't stand a chance. 2 year layoff, has been KO'd by grocery-baggers. Besides that, guys like Tutkaev exposed Choi's wrestling. That's all Movsar has known since birth. This will be a knife vs butter.
Line should be around -500 on Movsar.

Challenge accepted lol. 

Definitely a lot of wild cards though. It can be really hard to get a feel for how someone will perform in the UFC until you see them in there. regional tape can lie.

OVEREEM VS OLEINIK

oleinik by 3rd or 4th round finish. 

this is a hard one to pick. reems chin is gone and oleinik hits very hard. but hes just a basic striker, cant ever bet on reems chin though. oleinik by finish, ko or sub late, round 3 or 4.


MAKHACHEV VS TSARUKYAN

makhachev by decision.


not an easy fight for islam but he should grind out a decision.




PAVLOVICH VS GOLM


pavlovich by decision


with 2 loses golms back is against the wall here. but hes not ready for the ufc, he drops another decision and gets cut.




SHTYRKOV VS CLARK


shtyrkov by 1st round ko.


even though this is shtyrkov's ufc debut hes fought tougher competition than clark. id be surprised if it goes into the second. 




MODAFFERI VS SHEVCHENKO


modafferi by 3rd round gnp tko.


shevchenko has shown some cardio issues in three round fights. roxanne has gone five rounds at a high pace. shevchenkos striking style leaves openings for takedowns. i dont think roxanne can win a decision here. she could win all three rounds 10-8 and lose 29-28. she has to finish. i think the experience of 39 fights will tell here.




JOTKO VS AMEDOVSKI


amedovski by decision


jotko has lost three in a row, the last two by ko. its hard to pick him here. but i'd stay away from this one as far as betting goes.




EVLOEV VS WOO CHOI


evloev by decision or late sub.


i think woo choi has a decent ufc future but this is a bad match up for him.




ALIEV VS NAKAMURA


nakamura by late sub


this is another one thats hard to pick. nakamura is tough and has a big advantage on the ground, its hard not to pick him here. but this is another one id stay away from as far as betting goes.




YAKOVLEV VS DA SILVA


da silva by ko round 2 or 3


yakovlev hasnt fought in two and a half years and he lost his last two. he got a chance to make a payday at home and he took it. thats about it.




ABDURAKHIMNOV VS TYBURA


abdurakhimnov by decision


to close to call actually might even be a split decision.




the last two fights i know nothing about the fighters but my picks are oleksiejczuk over antigulov and fiziev over mustafaev.
