All these dudes moving up to LHW - Luke Rockhold, Chris Weidman - makes you wonder if there are any rumors out there that Jon Jones might be moving up to HW.

Jones vs. Santos
Jon Jones, SUB, R1
Light work for the goat

Nunes vs. Holm
Amanda Nunes, TKO, R1
Nunes will blitz her

Askren vs. Masvidal
Ben Askren, DEC
Askrens wrestling really is relentless, I don’t think Masvidal will keep him off

Rockhold vs. Błachowicz
Jan Błachowicz, TKO, R1
Probably will change this pick but I do think Jan had a chance here

Chiesa vs. Sanchez
Michael Chiesa, DEC
He won’t sub or finish him but Chiesa will win, annoyingly because I can’t stand Chiesa

Melendez vs. Allen
Gilbert Melendez, DEC
Gimme the dog here, I may regret it but I don’t honestly think Allen is that good, I think his wrestling will be neutralised here and Gil will win a striking battle

Gadelha vs. Markos
Cláudia Gadelha, DEC
Markos offers no real threats and I don’t think she will hold Claudia down

Marshman vs. Shahbazyan
Edmen Shahbazyan, DEC
Can’t see Marshman going down but I do see him losing a decision

@phillip I hate him too. Everybody does. I look forward to the day he looses. Santos ain't the one to do it. 

Edit: I'm amazed he hasn't popped hot again

Askren vs Masvidal

Askren, dec.

Nothing would make me happier than Gamebred beating ten shades of **** out of Ben, but I think that's very improbable. In a five rounder, I'd pick Masvidal, but not over three. George takes a bit to warm up. and I think he's going to spend the first round either on his back, or against the fence. Ditto the second. All Askren really needs to do is survive the third and it'sin the bag. This fight will bore the living bejeesus out of everyone,there will be lots of booing from the crowd, and it will all be justified.

Nunes vs Holm


Holm, dec.


Gut pick. I think this will be a very close fight that gets awarded to Holm either by split or controversial UD. Now, don't get me wrong--I'm a big fan of Nunes, and I want her to win, but she's up against it here against sheman Holly, who is very good at ishing her way to ridiculous point decisions despite the fact unless she lands a head kick she literally never inflicts any damage at all. I think she does that this time. The Schevchenko fights were close, and Amanda is a seriously big powerful ***** and totally outsized Val there. Holm is hard to land on clean, he's very strong in the clinch, hard to finish, and has good TDD. Amanda does best against strikers who are silly enough to try and outslug  her in the phone booth, which is suicide. Holm won't do it. She'll throw lots of low kicks, flick jabs, and if she gets caught against the fence she'll reverse position, and hold Amanda against the cage kneeing her uselessly in the babymaker. She'll do much less damage, and win the fight for having throw more that did nothing. Then all the weebs and Betas will be all over it like ****roaches.  All in all, I'm going to hate seeing Holm reclaim the belt. but my feeling is, he does.

I think Askren wins by using his world class wrestling skills.
