I think Gastelum straight starches Till for a long sleep 💤 but I’m pretty sure I thinked up a lot of thoughts that I don’t think the thoughts have ever came to be 🤔

Lol!  I actually wouldn't mind seeing Till winning as he's from the UK and more so coz people are writing him off.  But on the other hand he's a Scouser, a special breed! Usually only good for drug dealers, footballers or car thieves.

So if this fight is for the bmf belt, is it a 5 rounder even if it’s a co main event before an actual title?

@pie

The only reason that the fight between Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz would be scheduled for 5 rounds is because it's the main event, because it's not for an official championship.

@tepid

So if it’s bumped by an actual real title fight, such as jones vs. Blachowicz, it would become a 3 rounder?

Pretty sure it's a five rounder whether or not it's the main. The baddest ***********er title narrative was started for that reason. A 5 round championship fight without the belt. If they had any brains in their head they'd make it an actual belt. But that would cost them 800 bucks so they won't. Because their stupid.

@pie

If the fight isn't for a championship such as the UFC welterweight championship, the unified rules mandate that it be a 3-round fight unless it's the main event of a card, then a non-title fight can be scheduled for 5 rounds.

Prediction Comments

Predictions: 8 of 12 Winners, 3 Perfect, 515 Points   |   Tied for 561st

Masvidal vs. Diaz
Jorge Masvidal, TKO, R4
I think Diaz will have to wether a storm early rounds one and two and lose both rounds but then Jorge will gas and Diaz will get confident on the feet seeing Jorge tired but Diaz will get ktfo sorry if I am not making much sense I’m posting at 1240

Gastelum vs. Till
Kelvin Gastelum, TKO, R3
This’ll be a great scrap. I see Kelvin using huge huge g4p to win

Arce vs. Dawodu
Hakeem Dawodu, TKO, R2
He sure is mean, **** well rip Arce!

Arlovski vs. Rozenstruik
Andrei Arlovski, DEC
I think Andrei is a smart guy so I think he will get scared and attempt to clinch with Jairzinho and dirty box for 15 minutes getting 30-26 all scorecards

I know Masvidal doesn't care whether it's 3 or 5 rounds cause he's getting paid either way, but a 5 round heavily benefits Diaz and we all know why. Guy does triathalons for Gods sake. A 3 rounder would be a complete toss up, but Diaz probably taking this 48-47 or 49-46. Diaz ain't getting submitted and ain't getting outboxed or knocked out. Doesn't really leave any there option.
