@Rombu Corey is a good test for Walker, and I won't be surprised if Johnny Red doesn't pass it. I'll still be picking Walker though.

Yea fish, we talked about this earlier when this fight was announced. I like the fight for both of them. As they are both at a career defining moment and it'll show what's really up for them.

For Corey I guess you could say it's time to put it all together, win in dominant fashion and claim a title shot against Jon. We already have seen his high level skill set and personality it's just that he has been lacking to take advantage of the the opportunities so far. This looks like the one to take for him.

For Walker it's more like is the guy for real or did he just win fast and flashy which is not really telling us anything much about him? I want to see him tested for real so I can asses what he's made of in my opinion. Is he really somebody to be fighting the top 5 in the division let alone the champ at this point !? 

We'll know saturday night. 

As for now I pick Anderson

Burgos vs. Amirkhani
Shane Burgos, DEC
This is a tough call and the odds are not showing Makwan any respect at all. His last fight getting the sub of Fishgold was an impressive showing. Makwan does not lack in confidence at all and will be prepared to fight. It is Amirkhani's first fight outside of Europe so that will be a new angle to deal with. Burgos is the hometown fighter and has 2 other gym members also fighting on this card so the edge there goes to Burgos IMO. I don't see anyone with Amirkhani grappling ability on Burgos' resume this will be a test to keep the fight standing where he has the edge. Amirkhani now working at SBG gym claims to have been working on his standup but I think that will only serve him by striking into his grappling. From a betting perspective all the value lies with Amirkhani however I don't think he gets the win as Burgos does just enough to edge the scorecards. This fight has split dec. written all over it. The New York judging in the past has been suspect to put it mildly. This fight will be a good watch but a total sweat if you have money on it.

Chookagian vs Maia

Chookakagian, dec.


The matchmaking here is so horrendous I'm temped to believe it's an attempt at sabotage. Chookakagian the decisionator vs Jennifer 'plod-and-swing' Maia --who is incidentally exactly the sort of woman I imagine raises her seven naked children of indeterminate fatherhood, who at age five are as unholy-wise as you, on dry ramen cakes sprinkled in icing sugar from the same trailer she runs an unlicensed happy-ending massage parlor out of. It's dirty, too--there's finger paintings wrought on the walls in HP sauce, the edges of everything wear a black patina of human grease, and everywhere you look roaches as fat as dates are breeding in spilled leaves of cabbage. Anyhow, she must have pulled off (no pun intended) a real masterclass cornflour wristy on some desperate sensei  to 'earn' that  BJJ blackbelt because she is as seemingly capable of subbing her opponents as a doctor of theology is of surgery.

Chookagian probably wins a decision so boring it will make viewers question why they watch MMA at all.

Arlovski vs. Rozenstruik
Jairzinho Rozenstruik, TKO, R1
I like seeing Arlovski on the card because he is a bet against fighter. Now we get a nice price to do it again. Although of late Andrei's chin seemed to have sealed the cracks in it, he has made it to the judges for decision losses. Not this time. That chin will be cracked again. This is the biggest name Rozenstruik has faced in MMA, but has a ton of fights as a kickboxer. I don't see the moment being to big for him here and he takes care of business. I will say TKO round 1 but it could see a 2nd round. It won't see a 3rd however and the price is right. I am thinking of betting this fight early before money comes in on "Bigi Boy"
