Just rewatched Wiman vs Tavares from back in the day. What a ******' great scrap that was. I hope Wiman's still got it. If he's not too old and rusty, Pena has a tough fight on his hands.

Renato vs Chang

Chang, KO/TKO R2.

Hard fight to pick. On a good night Renato just monsters people, but that is equally true for the Zombie.  Chang definitely carries the bigger power and is the more seasoned vet, Renato is a little more technical but does struggle to get out of first gear when he is confronted with someone who returns heavy fire. I'm gonna take the zombie with moderate confidence in this one. I think he's going to dictate the range, keep the exchanges in the middle and catch Moicano with something big that puts him on ***** street, then pours it on for a TKO. Not a fight I have a firm opinion on either way however.

Lineker vs Font

Lineker, KO/TKO r2.

I like Rob, but this is a bad fight for him at a really bad time. Lineker just came out of a very close war with sandhagen who is very similar to font in a lot of ways, but y'know....better. You arguably could have scored that fight for Lineker and if he'd been given the win, I wouldn't have been offended. John is going to have learned from that last fight and will not let Font win on points. and a Lineker that isn't going to let his opponent win on points is a very scary Lineker, and too much for a guy like Rob.

I agree with a lot of that @Fish 



Moicano has basically looked different in every single UFC fight. All kinds of gameplans & ways of winning. You're right, Renato usually does not like pressure, unless its plotting pressure (Stephens fight) and that's the gameplan that I think he will use against TKZ. Kicking out the calf & knee of TKZ before tagging him up while coming in IMO. 

Massive fan of TKZ..was all over him vs Bermudez and picked him to beat Yair and thought he would get the decision....Also, that ending actually broke my heart. 


Fantastic match-up that could easily favor both the longer the fight goes on. Very hard to pick.

Spicely gonna make Winn fight, 100%. Probably won't win but Eric is a tough SOB, snagged up a choke on Marreta for christs sake...just KO'd Caio Magalhaes

@Bruce yeah, I know what you mean. I don't think this will be a close fight, it will go totally one way or the other. As for which way it goes, your guess is as good as mine. No idea. Definitely will be rooting for the Zombie, nothing against Moicano but I'd like to see Chang get back in the win column after that epic war with Yair. I picked him in that one too, and he would have gotten the nod if not for that one-in-a-million KO.

MOICANO vs JUNG

jung by late stoppage round 4 or 5

this should be a very good fight. i think moicano is a legit threat at 145 but i give jung a slight advantage for 2 reasons. more heart if the fight goes deep and you gotta gut it out plus it being a 5 round fight. for these 2 reasons im picking tkz. i agree with everyone here that jung was winning the fight with yair. fish called it a one in a million, i'll just say it straight up, that elbow was pure luck and if you watch mma for a hundred years you  will prolly never see another one like it.


LINEKER vs FONT

lineker by ko/tko round 2 or 3

after what happened to john his last time out i dont see him going to the judges on this one.


BARBERENA vs BROWN

barberena ko/tko round 1 or 2

i was actually kiinda high on bown until his last fight with price. now i have a huge ? about his chin. he'll have to prove that was a fluke and hes not chinny. no easy task against bryan. i'll take bam bam.


LEE vs DE LA ROSA

lee by decision or late sub

   i think lee takes her down at will and pretty much mauls her.

Barberena vs. Brown
Bryan Barberena, TKO, R2
Barberena is one tough S.O.B. unless that war with Luque took everything out of him he should be able to finish Brown for a win. Brown is not on the level of fighters that Barberena has lost to, and I don't think has what it takes to win this fight. I suspect Barberena puts on the forward pressure walking down Brown until he gets tired and gets cracked. Then from there its ground and pound until the ref stops it.

@AnAlias disagree 100% 

Brown has beat nobody and looked terrible doing it. On top of getting KOd while smelling somebodies foot? Nah. If anythings Brown is overrated in the fact that somehow, he's a "professional fighter"...AND a year layoff with an injury....props to Brown for even stepping outside again, because he shouldn't have. That's the most embarrassing sequence of events that has ever happened in Prize-Fighting.

HOLLAND vs DI CHIRICO

holland by decision

not sold on either of these guys but i'll take the longer fighter with the 7" reach advantage. would be a big win for di chirico if he can pull it off. i doubt it though.


YODER vs KONDO

kondo by decision

i thought yoder lost the fight with cooper, i cant imagine what fight the judges were watching. kondo got liver kicked by botelho in her debut and outclassed by xiaonan in her second fight. shes tough and never stops coming forward, i give her the edge here.
