Askren vs. Masvidal
Ben Askren, DEC
I think that if Maia couldn't submit him, I doubt Askren can. However, he's still one helluva grappler and that'll probably win him the fight by unanimous decision.

Maia using jujitsu subs is a whole different ball game then askren using wrestling subs.

Is it like comparing Fruits and Vegetables?

Sure they are both foods (submissions), but they are different groups entirely.

Exactly. U never see jujitsu guys doing bulldog or Ezekiel chokes and u never see wrestlers going for heel hooks and triangles............. Unless u count arm triangles.

ok easy, @lewdeylew


Diego Sanchez is horrendous. Chiesa just SUB'd Carlos with something nobodies ever seen before and acted like it was nothing. Diego gets wobbled by gusts of wind and has to resort to wrestling vs pathetic fighters. 


UFC had to go out of their way to find Diego some wins. That's long gone.

I disagree Bruce. 

Diego does have a shopworn chin but has NEVER been subbed and can go all day if you don't KO him. Chiesa's preferred path to victory will almost certainly not work here. He could KO Diego but I don't expect him to change up his plan and if this is a grapplefest I see Diego winning a decision.

We'll see @mulefloyd 


I personally know of 1,000 guys that could rest their balls on Diegos forehead. Chiesa is massive and on another level. Diego is a can smasher. 


Gifted a DEC vs Gomi. Gifted the worst DEC of all time vs Pearson, who isn't good. Destroyed by Lamas. Lay & Pray'd vs Lime Disease Miller. KO'd by Lauzon. Didn't even hurt Held but won. KO'd dead twice in a row..now Diego is fighting the Galls & Craig Whites of the world. 


Basically, Diego hasn't done anything impressive in 10 years.

@bruce I believe you're referring to 
Diego "lionheart" Sanchez.
We're talking about Diego"Nightmare" Sanchez.
Get it?

Prediction Comments

Predictions: 12 of 12 Pending   |   Tied for 1st with 224 others   |   View

Jones vs. Santos
Jon Jones, DEC
I think this will be just like the Smith fight. A dominate decision by Jon. A boring, grapple heavy fight the Jon will take over. I think there will be a few kicks here and there, but then Jon will get him against the fence and dominate. Easy fight for Bones.

Nunes vs. Holm
Holly Holm, TKO, R1
Now look, I understand picking Holm is unpopular of an opinion, but just trust me. She will squeeze in a head kick and KO Nunes in round one. You will see.

Rockhold vs. Błachowicz
Luke Rockhold, TKO, R2
I think Rockhold will dominate Jan on the ground in the first round, then realize his kicking ability. Luke will kick him with a question mark kick and win.

Askren vs. Masvidal
Ben Askren, SUB, R1
I think Ben is a much better wrestler than Jorge, I think he will get a rear named choke and dominate Jorge, I’m a Jorge fan but I think he will get choked out.

N'Gannou vs. dos Santos
Francis N'Gannou, TKO, R1
I think Francis has an easy fight here. Junior is getting somewhat older, and less powerful and kind of sloppy. While Francis is in his prime, I think he will slip in a sneaky uppercut on his way in.

Chiesa vs. Sanchez
Michael Chiesa, SUB, R2
I just think Mike is a much better submission artist. I think he will get beat up on the feet but then he will crack a Kimora by R2.

O'Malley vs. Vera
Sean O'Malley, TKO, R1
I think Sean will score a spinning backfist on his way into a combo and knock Vera out.

Melendez vs. Allen
Gilbert Melendez, DEC
I think Gilbert will snap his little losing streak by getting a close decision with Allen. It will be a boring, slow wrestle heavy fight, but Gilbert will come in at 29-28.
