Cyborg vs. Spencer
Cris Cyborg, TKO, R1
Felicia is great and will continue to build herself in the UFC. However, fight fans tend to forget and write off fighters after A loss. Cyborg is way quicker, and has a solid well developed skill set. Felicia, no matter how likeable will not withstand her power. First round TKO for Cyborg here.

re rumble them two

Predictions: 9 of 11 Winners, 2 Perfect, 530 Points   |   Tied for 789th

The UFC wants to use Ortega and Zabit differently now after Frankie and Zombie re-entered the scene. Also Moicano and Aldo in the mix, Emmett pushin hard to get somewhere here too. Interesting weight class none the less. Smooth Sailin

Predictions: 9 of 11 Winners, 2 Perfect, 530 Points   |   Tied for 789th

Who is not waitin for this one here ? FK looks nice on paper and will deliver for shure on fightnight.

NEVER BORING CRAZY NICO PRIZE is goin against a very sniper like striker in Geoff Neal.

Neal excels in strikin range but a little too passive, sometimes he lacks the recklessness Nico Prize definitely possesses. Maybe crazy Nico is lookin to get this on the floor to crazy hit him in the face from scramble position. STOKED FOR THAT FIGHT !!!

Pretty sad that it impresses and shocks me when everyone makes weight even worse when now we know next event guaranteed people miss weight. Since nobody missed this time.

I changed from Davis to Araujo. Even though they're both terrible, I believe Davis' ****** striking defense will fail before Araujo's ****** TDD.
