This is just as insane an interview as any Randy Savage or Ultimate Warrior promo, Diego is just speaking with an inside voice.

Well, I just changed my mind on Diego I don't believe he's had proper training these past three weeks as he admitted to leaving Jackson/Wink. Has he even been properly training? i just think all the change 3 weeks out is gonna hamper more than help The Nightmare.

Jones vs. Santos
Jon Jones, SUB, R3
The smart pick is Jones. The lucky one is Santos.

Nunes vs. Holm
Holly Holm, DEC
Holly went 5 with Cyborg. She wont fall into the slugfest and can definitely outstrike Nunes.

Askren vs. Masvidal
Ben Askren, TKO, R3
Wrestling beats striking almost every time.

Rockhold vs. Błachowicz
Jan Błachowicz, TKO, R1
Luke needs a win, but should have started lower on the LHW list imo.

Chiesa vs. Sanchez
Diego Sanchez, DEC
So much cardio, hard choice but i think Diego pushes harder.

Melendez vs. Allen
Gilbert Melendez, DEC
I think Melendez knows he needs this win and has faced all top guys recently. I think he shows up for the upset.

Vera vs. Hernandez
Marlon Vera, TKO, R2
Vera has beaten far better guys than this.

Gadelha vs. Markos
Randa Markos, DEC
Randa has had some rough patches but I think she takes care of it here.

Perez vs. Song
Yadong Song, DEC
Honestly just going with the hype on this guy.

Marshman vs. Shahbazyan
Edmen Shahbazyan, TKO, R2
Shahbazyan is finishing fighters while Marshman is losing and scratching decisions.

Naurdiev vs. Rencountre
Ismail Naurdiev, DEC
Leaned on odds here.

Kianzad vs. Avila
Julia Avila, DEC
I like finishers over decision winners.

Jones vs. Santos
Jon Jones, TKO, R2
まず、サントスのチャンスは序盤にしかありません。サントスは1ラウンド以降明らかに動きが落ちます。サントスが相手を倒すパターンはカウンター、キック、ラッシュがあります。カウンター、ラッシュはジョーンズのリーチが長すぎる上に、距離のコントロールがうまいので、当てるのが難しいと思います。なので、パンチを当てるためにもキックを使う必要があります。しかし、ジョーンズのテイクダウンフェイントでキックがなかなか出しづらいと思います。そしてサントスはアンダース戦で見る限りテイクダウンディフェンスはどうもよくなさそうです。しかも、相当サイズ差があるので、グラウンドで圧倒されてしまうと思います。サントスにとってとても厳しい試合になりそうです。

THE DREAM IS COMIN TO GIVE YOU NIGHTMARES

Predictions: 10 of 12 Winners, 6 Perfect, 725 Points   |   Tied for 38th with 1 other


(1) How crazy would it be if some of SANTOS spinning **** catches the GOAT? However JON and his BONES are movin way to good so far, but hey it doesn't need much these days. Lets hope there is some real contest and adversity at least.
(5) Diego Sanchez is a beast!! I'll go with his reinvention, movement and no brain damage, there is no I in the team or there is no team in the I. NIGHTMARE ALL NIGHT LONG
(2) I fear the PREACHERS DAUGHTER is in for an awakening...NUNES is just to scary on the feet, wouldn't be surprised if HOLLY gets lost in tryin her wrestlin too hard.
(3) CHORGE or JORGE is going to make this one against BEN inside the first round. Go and bet him at the current odds as he is just to good to pass. ASKREN is too one-dimensional even in his interviews. Always eloquently puttin the pieces together. But now he is in a fight with GAMEBRED the backyard dog. GO MASVIDAL
(4) Luke Rockhold = no comment

Predictions: 9 of 12 Winners, 5 Perfect, 615 Points   |   Tied for 356th

Jones vs. Santos
Jon Jones, TKO, R3
Yea I hate this ****. I originally had Thiago Santos by R2/KO.... But the more I think about it, His style kinda plays right into what Jon is really good at. Well he's goood everywhere except a few places. I really can't stand the guy. He makes me cringe. But I gotta fold and take Jones. I just wish it was like in real life. you put a sledgehammer vs. bones...... Those bones will get smashed. Pulverized. Wish it'd happen that way. How's that song go... "Wish in one hand, **** in the other, see which one gets filled up first"

Nunes vs. Holm
Amanda Nunes, TKO, R1
Look, I'm gonna honestly feel a little badd, watching Holly Holm get thrashed. Amanda Nunes was nasty BEFORE smashing Rousey. And then destroyed the baddest ***** in Cyborg. She's got all the confidence needed. She's gonna go out, be patient for like 30-45 seconds, then I expect bombs and heavy artillery fire coming down on Holm. Btw..... Nunes has finished her last 9/10 wins in R1.

Askren vs. Masvidal
Ben Askren, DEC
Geeezus Christ. Ben Askren. We've seen him take a severe beating. And a motivated Jorge can do some damage. Like Askren I just see plodding face first forward, eating shot after shot as he looks for a takedown. Annnd I'm not sure what the **** to do here.

Rockhold vs. Błachowicz
Luke Rockhold, TKO, R2
I actually like this move for Rockhold. Look at how well the other MW's have done at 205. I just hope he fixed one thing. He tends to hold his ************* chin sky high when in striking exchanges. That's what Bisping took advantage of. If Bisping, Among others can do it, Blachowicz can too
