Too many people have the same goofy prediction

People keep saying either Ben will take Damian down, or strike with Damian and get boxed up. Dont be stupid, it's the first one. Damian can not stop Ben's takedowns and doesn't have the striking skills to neutralise ben with a stick and move tactic. They will be grappling, I see ben dominating Damian and tiring him out till he gets a late TKO.

I think it will be similar to Silva vs Sonnen 1. I think Ben Will dominate for most of the fight. Only to make a mistake and get caught in a submission at the end of the fight. I think it will be very exciting.

It took Mayes 3 cracks on DWCS to get to the big show and he did show improvement from shows 1 to 3. However for all his hard work he gets tossed in with a much more finished product in Gane. I see Gane using pace and technique to wear on Mayes who has showed he will struggle with both. Gane will find a finish in the 2nd by

Salikhov vs. Staropoli
Muslim Salikhov, TKO, R2
Muslim has the huge edge in experience with 200 kickboxing matches and 17 mma fights to draw on. He also holds the power advantage as well. Staropoli brings good cardio and quickness as well as youth to the table. Salikhov 2 losses in MMA have come by sub not a strength of Staropoli who shows a willingness to engage in the standup. That is what I believe will be his undoing in this fight. This is a clear striker vs striker fight. Salikhov invites striking and counters very well. I see him eventually landing the power shot and ending this fight. Unless somehow Staropoli completely comes out of nowhere with grappling that he has never shown before he plays into Muslim's strength. Also it is worth noting this is the first time Staropoli will be fighting outside of South America. He is traveling half way around the world for this fight coming into territory that Muslim is comfortable in. Add it all up and it should be a Salikhov win.

Maia vs. Askren
Ben Askren, DEC
Both old and slow. I want to pick Maia, but I think Askren's wrestling will prevail and avoid Maia's submissions.

Johnson vs. Ray
Michael Johnson, TKO, R1
Johnson by KO

Dariush vs. Camacho
Beneil Dariush, SUB, R2
Dariush drops him in the second, finishes him via choke in the second round.

Gane vs. Mayes
Ciryl Gane, TKO, R1
Mayes is finishing bums late in the fight, meanwhile Gane is murdering guys with solid undefeated records in the first via KO or Submission. I'm going with a round 1 finish by Gane.

Salikhov vs. Staropoli
Muslim Salikhov, TKO, R1
It just takes one clean shot for Salikhov to drop you, and Staropoli's aggressive style will get him dropped.

Markos vs. Yoder
Randa Markos, DEC
Man, I hope we don't see a repeat of Markos Gadelha where both ladies stare at each other for 15 minutes, but I don't think so. 50/50 fight, might be a fight to target on draftkings if both of them are searching for takedowns and trying to advance. I'll take the better fighter in Markos, but not confidently.

Fiziev vs. White
Rafael Fiziev, TKO, R2
I'm fading Alex White because I think he's terrible, and I think Fiziev is better than he showed against Mustafaev.

Barzola vs. Evloev
Enrique Barzola, TKO, R3
I'm not going to buy into Evloev's hype yet, Barzola is tough to take down and control and arguably has better striking than Evloev. I'm going with a round 3 finish by Barzola.

Pavlovich vs. Greene
Sergey Pavlovich, TKO, R1
I don't think Greene has faced anyone with the speed or power of Pavlovich. Greene isn't Overeem, and he's going to get lit up and dropped in the 1st. I don't care if Greene hasn't been finished, there's levels of striking.

Albu vs. Lookboonmee
Loma Lookboonmee, DEC
30-27 victory for Konklak Suphisara.

Pessoa vs. Hughes
Raphael Pessoa, TKO, R1
You never know with heavyweights, and Hughes is tough to finish, but I have a feeling Pessoa wins this one. I'm not confident, but are you ever 100% confident in heavyweight fights? I'd cap t his 65/35 for Hughes, but I'm going with the underdog here.

Maia vs. Askren
Ben Askren, DEC
If Askren doesn't win, he's done for in the UFC. That being said, while Maia is great, this is probably one of his last fights and I don't seeing him submitting Askren. Unless we get a crazy repeat of the Masvidal fight, I think Askren will take it via UD.

Salikhov vs. Staropoli
Muslim Salikhov, TKO, R1
Salikhov is set to have a notable performance here, should be a fun fight

Fiziev vs. White
Rafael Fiziev, TKO, R2
At +115 odds, betting on this fight not going the distance is a great return. I doubt this will go to a decision

Albu vs. Lookboonmee
Aleksandra Albu, DEC
Lookboonmee is making her debut here, this is also her first fight at Strawweight instead of Atomweight. I think this'll be an interesting fight but the advantage is definitely in Albu's favor
