Esparza vs. Grasso
Alexa Grasso, DEC
Grasso looked great last time out. But she was fighting a punch bag, sorry I like Karolina but she's a prime example of a semi attractive women in MMA being over hyped by the UFC who know the virgins will go bonkers! Grasso is like that too. I usually have a rule when picking female fights Always back the ugly chick! This 1's close. Grasso's ****eye swings it in her favour on the ugly scale

Askarov vs. Moreno
Askar Askarov, SUB, R1
I almost forgot about Askarov! I seen his last fight in ACB and instantly thought he'd be a contender in the UFC. With his signing and Brandon Moreno back too is it safe to say that Triple C saved the Flyweight division? Fair play if it's back as I always thought the Flyweights put on entertaining fights, maybe not many KO's but fast paced, technical and a lot of wild scrambles! Anyway, look out for Askarov, potential champion

Rodriguez vs. Stephens
Jeremy Stephens, DEC
I know it’s a risky pick by me, but I’m taking Jeremy by decision. He is gonna get in a slug fest and honestly I just can’t wait.

Esparza vs. Grasso
Carla Esparza, DEC
I’m choosing Carla to win a 30-27 decision and control this amazing striker and brawler in Grasso.

Hill vs. Nunes
Angela Hill, DEC
Hill will brawl tf out of Nunes. Could be fun!

Moreira vs. Craig
Paul Craig, SUB, R3
This could be okay, a sloppy jiu Jitsu match with some great wrestling.

Lmao I called Ryan Macdonald one of the ****tiest fighters to get signed recently. But the absolute worst is Marcos Mariano that guy is truly awful. Literally only got signed because's he's Silva's buddy. He has 0 potential to grow, 32 years old ,6-5 record, he wouldn't even win on the Contender series.

Edit: Actually he's so bad they would never even call him to be featured on a contender series episode.

@Mikey if ugliness was directly correlated to ability then Evinger would be the multi-weight champ of ******* everything--including men's HW. There'd be no other point in any of these other ******* turning up.

Rodriguez vs. Stephens
Jeremy Stephens, SUB, R5
I think this fight will be a snoozefest with Rodriguez just laying on Stephens for 4.5 round until Stephens get the sub

Esparza vs. Grasso
Carla Esparza, TKO, R1
Carla Esparza is so hot and i wank to her all the time. oh wait we picking again i think Esparza will blind her with her hotness then win a decision

Askarov vs. Moreno
Brandon Moreno, TKO, R3
I think Bumkar bumkarov is super overated because of being russian like Khabib. Moreno will put a clinic on Bumkar and ko him the 3rd to put him out of his misory

Aldana vs. Melo
Vanessa Melo, SUB, R2
I think Vanessa will beat Aldana as she is calm and Melo.

Eubanks vs. Correia
Sijara Eubanks, DEC
Correia is shot as a fighter. This matchup is tailor made for Eubanks to get a win. I pick Eubanks by dec but there is a good chance she gets a finish via ground and pound. So once the odds come out on distance I will be looking for + money on the under which will most likely be set at 2.5.

Not the biggest names but we might get some entertaining fights here


Here are my thoughts on the card. Don't be surprised when Stephens pulls off some nasty GNP
