Hermansson vs. Cannonier
Jared Cannonier, SUB, R5
Jack Hermansson is so overrated, He couldn't even finish Jacure with that guiliotine and Jacure sub defence sucks to be honest. Cannonier beat Anderson Silva by KO . So i think this fight will end by 5th round sub after Cannonier lay on Hermanson for 4 round

Nelson vs. Burns
Gunnar Nelson, SUB, R1
I think Nelson gonna sub Gilbert because Gilbert is super **** on the ground

St. Preux vs. Oleksiejczuk
Ovince St. Preux, TKO, R3
Ovince is gonna KO this bum, Michal suck, My ******** brother could KO Vilante by body shot and beat Roundtree

Amedovski vs. Phillips
John Phillips, SUB, R3
John Philips is super underated and I think he last 3 wins were super decisive and I we all know why his nickname is the White Mike Tyson and it because of his awesome jiu jitsu skills

Cutelaba vs. Rountree
Ion Cutelaba, SUB, R3
My ******** brother can beat Rountree, But the question you all been asking is Ion better fighter then my ******** brother and i say no but he still beat Rountree because of Cutelaba awesome ground game and cardio

Hermansson vs. Cannonier Picks


Hermansson vs. Cannonier
Winner will probably be just one fight from a shot or potentially announced as next in line after Costa. However I think both guys likely still need one more win before a title shot after this one just with the timing. Hermansson is definitely the favorite 6-1 in his last 7 with the only loss coming to Thiago Santos who just went 5 rounds with Jones. Cannonier has not managed to be quite as consistent going 4-3 but looking hugely improved since dropping to 185lbs. Neither guy had ever been seriously considered as a contender for the title until 2019 but now both guys are firmly in the contender bracket. For me it all comes down to who has the most tools for the fight. Don't think its a shock to say that Cannoier looks to have the clear advantage on the feet at least in terms of power and Hermansson has the clear advantage on the ground in terms of submissions. The deciding factor for me is the wrestling. Cannonier has previously been taken down by Cutelaba 6 times, Glover 3 times, Jan 4 times and Branch 3 times. Granted three of those fights were at Lightheavyweight but Branch wasn't and if Cannoier is consistently vulnerable to the takedown I don't see it being long before Hermansson takes advantage of that. 
Result: Jack Hermansson, Round 3, Submission

Haven't been looking at cards till about the week of. Headliner is ok, but didn't have high hopes for the rest of the card because of location, start time etc. But damn this card is loaded with fun fighters and stylistically fun fights! Can't watch till Monday but ill keep away from spoilers till then.

Bahadurzada vs. Naurdiev
Ismail Naurdiev, TKO, R2
Trur Siyar blir for vanskelig å slå ut, og trur ikkje Naurdiev kjem til å jage mykje etter ein sub. Enten dec eller KO for Naurdiev

Chikadze vs. Davis
Brandon Davis, SUB, R1
Giga Chikadze har aldri slått nokon som har fleire seire enn tap, og Davis er sulten. Kan ikkje tru at denne går nokon annan vei.

Chiasson vs. Länsberg
Lina Länsberg, DEC
Chiasson har aldri møtt nokon på Länsberg sitt nivå. Kjenner meg ikkje trygg på svensk seier, men trur Lina kan dra det i land.

Diakiese vs. Vannata
Lando Vannata, DEC
Held ein knapp på Vannata, men trur Diakese kan outwrestle Lando med mindre han har fått litt juling først. Truleg ein dec, men kanskje Lando submitter han også.

This card is indeed way better than the previous.

Cannonier VS Hermannson - Cannonier gets it done in the second round, T.K.O


Nelson VS Burns - Nelson is going to sub Burns inside two rounds


Diakese VS Vannata - Diakese by decision


Saint Preux VS Oleksiejczuk - Oleksiejczuk is going to K.O Ovince inside two rounds


Oliveira VS Dalby - Dalby by decision

Amedovski VS Phillips -  Phillips by K.O (come on man do it once in the UFC or sign with Bellator)


All great fights. Stoked to see Khalil, Gunnar, Dalby, Vannata and Cannonier all on one card also excited to know how Muradov will handle his UFC debut. Smooth Sailin to you all, enjoy the fights and don't bet the house on any of them

Madsen vs. Belluardo
Danilo Belluardo, SUB, R3
I think Belluardo is going to submit Madsen, Madsen is an olympic wrestler but his top control is horrendous and i see him get tap,snap or nap

Oliveira vs. Dalby
Nicolas Dalby, SUB, R3
Cowboy just got smash by Gaetche and i think it a quick turnaround so i see Dalby dropping than taping Cowboy

Di Chirico vs. Muradov
Alessio Di Chirico, SUB, R3
DI chirico look likes spook from star trak and I think people are overating Muradov because he is russian so they think he has a ground game but i think it be anouter sub

Bahadurzada vs. Naurdiev
Siyar Bahadurzada, SUB, R3
Naurdiev shown in his last fight that he has no ground game, and i see Siyar tapping him with an arm triangle and put that to the bank

Hermansson vs. Cannonier
Jack Hermansson, SUB, R1
Hermansson by his slick arm-in guillotine early in the first round.

Madsen vs. Belluardo
Danilo Belluardo, SUB, R2
I don't know **** about either fighter, and they're the comain event. Belluardo for the heavy upset by submission **** it

Nelson vs. Burns
Gilbert Burns, DEC
I actually think this will be a draw. But I'll go with Burns edging out a split with his wrestling and ground and pound, but Nelson threatening with submissions.

Cutelaba vs. Rountree
Ion Cutelaba, TKO, R2
Cutelaba by KO (Punches)

St. Preux vs. Oleksiejczuk
Michał Oleksiejczuk, TKO, R1
Oleksiejczuk by KO (Punches) early on. Vicious send off for the aging OSP.

Oliveira vs. Dalby
Alex Oliveira, TKO, R1
Oliveira by TKO (Punches) early on

Amedovski vs. Phillips
John Phillips, TKO, R3
Phillips by KO (Punch)

Di Chirico vs. Muradov
Alessio Di Chirico, TKO, R2
Di Chirico by TKO (Knees and Punches)

Bahadurzada vs. Naurdiev
Siyar Bahadurzada, DEC
Bahadurzada is a savage and should be able to weather the early storm. I feel like Naurdiev will gas and Siyar will pull off the last 2 rounds.

Chikadze vs. Davis
Brandon Davis, DEC
Davis by Decision (Unanimous)

Chiasson vs. Länsberg
Macy Chiasson, TKO, R1
Chiasson by TKO (Punches)

Hernandez vs. Shore
Jack Shore, SUB, R3
Good matchup to kick off a solid slate of fights. Shore making debut from Cage Warriors as champ in that organization. I don't see the move to the UFC as one he can't handle. He has been brought along the right way and now is time for him to progress to the next level. He is not getting a softball to start and will be tested in this fight. I see Shore working in ground and pound to an eventual choke and getting the sub win. I see value on the betting line and will have a wager on this fight. Hernandez is a good test but one I see Shore passing without needing the judges scorecards.

Madsen vs. Belluardo
Mark O. Madsen, DEC
Home country Olympic hero gets moved into co-main event slot vs. what appears to be a tailor made matchup. One concern and it is slight is the weight cut for Madsen. He is dropping down to 155 but as a former Olympic wrestler I have to trust he knows what he is doing in that department. Belluardo was finished in his first UFC fight via G&P by a submission fighter. So I suspect a wrestler who is dropping down a weight class should be the much stronger fighter and impose his style on this fight. Add in the crowd it all adds up to what should be an impressive win. The odds indicate the same outcome. Madsen should win and dominate.

Hermansson vs. Cannonier
Jack Hermansson, SUB, R2
Cannonier har ikkje blitt submitted før, men Hermansson tilbyr ein annan tilnærming til takedowns enn det Killa Gorilla har vist seg god til å forsvare. Trur på ein finish for Jack, men om det blir GnP eller sub er vanskeleg å spå

Madsen vs. Belluardo
Mark O. Madsen, TKO, R1
Belluardo har blitt slått ut alle fire tapa sine, og olympen ønskjer å imponere på heimebane. Trur det blit ein KO, som vanlegvis kjem i første runde for Madsen.

Nelson vs. Burns
Gilbert Burns, TKO, R2
Burns er ein skikkeleg plugg. Utroleg sterk grappling, og vant mot Kunchenko på kort varsel! Med mindre ein har noko å tilby ståande mot Burns - og det trur eg ikkje Gunni har - går det nok dårleg.

Cutelaba vs. Rountree
Khalil Rountree, TKO, R2
Etter den sjuke forbedringa til Rountree før Eryk Anders-kampen er eg overbevist om at Cutelaba er långt ifrå god nok. Kanskje Khalil blir den første til å slå han ut.

St. Preux vs. Oleksiejczuk
Michał Oleksiejczuk, DEC
OSP har kun blitt KO'd av ein topp fighter før, og det var Manuwa. Trur han kan overleve mot Lord Michal også då han har ein reach adv. og er betre på bakken om han får kampen dit. Men trur fortsatt på polsk seier.

Oliveira vs. Dalby
Nicolas Dalby, DEC
Må leve i troa på at dansken kan hamle opp med den galne brasilianeren, men eg har ikkje noko særleg å basere det på

I agree with the round 2 prediction but am feeling the KO/TKO because I respect Cannonier's defensive BJJ and think Hermansson may prefer to put him out on the feet where he absolutely has the advantage, although I agree he has the better BJJ of the two men as well.

This is a pretty decent card IMO for a non-PPV.
