Predictions: 7 of 10 Winners, 3 Perfect, 440 Points   |   Tied for 48th with 11 others

Wade vs. Aliev
Akhmet Aliev, TKO, R2
Chris Wade...... "The Long Island Killer", Reeaaally??????? I never, ever once heard him announced as that. Definitely pretty far from a killer...

Palmer vs. Laurentino
Lance Palmer, DEC
35 fights at 26yrs old.... daaang. Idk, I'm half tempted to take Laurentino here. Idk, I don't think Palmer is as goood as they make him out to be, His wrestling is goood, but kinda boring guy to watch. Maybe that's why the UFC hasn't come busting down his door.

Schulte vs. Nijem
Natan Schulte, SUB, R2
I'm sorry, but picking Ramsey Nijem is extremely ballsy.. I see Noooo way in which he has an advantage and clearcut route to victory. Natan Schulte is superior, well everywhere EXCEPT height/reach. that's it. And that means nothing really. Not like he's gonna use it to pick up a win.

Harrison vs. Khaibulaev
Andre Harrison, DEC
Andre Harrison.... hmmm. Technically sound, but extremely boring to watch. I respect the guy for what was it, 19 fight win streak before his 1st career loss??? I wish that loss, would open him up, and actually push for finishing fights and stop trying to protect a perfect, unbeaten record. That's honestly how I felt watching him BEFORE the loss. But it's still the same AFTER the loss. He's completely content to win on points...... Which is fine, but if the finish is there or obtainable, then you should push for it, and he simply doesn't. Lack of killer instinct? I dunno. Idk what it is. But I like him matched up against Movlid Khaibulaev. Coz duuude is a killer. legit killer. Maybe he can pull some kinda excitement outta Harrison.

Mamedov vs. Bao
Islam Mamedov, SUB, R1
Goood God where do these guys get their nicknames. Bao "Microwave" Yincang. What the **** man.. I get it, your country makes a buncha ****, surely there's something better than a ****-king microwave you'd wanna be named after.

Predictions: 6 of 10 Winners, 1 Perfect, 340 Points   |   Tied for 201st

Wade vs. Aliev
Akhmet Aliev, TKO, R2
Aliev was my pick before the tournament started, nothings changed!

Harrison vs. Khaibulaev
Movlid Khaibulaev, TKO, R2
Thought more would be picking Khaibulaev after that 10second jump knee KO went viral. I know Harrison has a good record but he's a lay n pray guy and Khabulaev has wins over good grapplers (burns) and solid russian wrestlers.

Mamedov vs. Bao
Islam Mamedov, SUB, R1
I'm convinced PFL bring guys in to get their established fighters easy points. This guy "the microwave"! was choked out by a 3-0 guy in his fight before the PFL started!

Hopefully I’m wrong about Harrison.  Gilpin bit of dog but he’s been active and solid. Assunção hasn’t fought in over 2 years. Could be tough match up for his return fight.

This is only the 2nd event of those tournaments and the 1st event had the KOTY outside the UFC and 3 other first round stoppages. Only the last 3 fights were boring because they decided to end the show with Andre Harrison,Chris Wade,and Lance Palmer. Terrible bout order.

@hyrm  No need to worry about Wade laying and praying as Aliev gonna knock his ass out!  If Laurentino can stuff a couple takedowns I wouldn't be surprised if he smoke Palmer too!  More confident in Aliev tho!

Islam Mamedov just might be the biggest favorite in the entire history of MMA... Just checked odds. He opened as a -3500 favorite, now he's up to -5000. Comeback on Bao Yincang................ A ridonkulous +1400

Bao sucks, he's literally only in this tournament because he's Chinese. He was 1-3 coming into PFL. No idea why they signed him. If they wanted an Asian fighter there was definitely better options than him.
