I just thought of something...

Would it be a stretch to think that Diaz vs Masvidal might end up looking like Diaz vs Daley just lasting longer?

I rewatched the fight just now, and honestly I would not be surprised if it is damn near the same.

It might turn out like that but I think it will most likely be Diaz putting pressure on Masvidal in the late rounds and winning 3,4, and 5. If Conor can't knock out Nate than Masvidal ain't going to do it and that's the only way I see Masvidal winning.

Predictions: 9 of 12 Winners, 3 Perfect, 580 Points   |   Tied for 178th

Masvidal vs. Diaz
Jorge Masvidal, DEC
Who the **** nows. I'll go with the guy with more momentum imo.

Gastelum vs. Till
Darren Till, TKO, R2
Back and forth fight, but I think the underdog gets the job done. This is 50/50.

Thompson vs. Luque
Stephen Thompson, DEC
Brain says Thompson, heart says Luque. Thompson has the tools to stop Luque, but Luque has the finishing ability to finish Thompson. However, Luque's inability to put away a guy like Mike Perry (don't get me wrong I think Perry is tough), but I thought it showed a lot of holes in Luque's game that Thompson can exploit. I'm going with the "there's levels to this game" and say Thompson wins a decision.

Lewis vs. Ivanov
Blagoy Ivanov, TKO, R3
What does Derrick bring to the table that Blagoy hasn't seen before? Nothing! Blagoy is a tough SOB and I think he tires out Lewis and finishes him late.

Lee vs. Gillespie
Gregor Gillespie, SUB, R3
I really want to say Kevin's experience gets the job done here, but he lacks awareness in the cage and his ego gets the best of him time after time. Do I think he knocks out Gregor in the first? He can, but I don't think he does. Gillespie is undefeated for a reason and although I think he gets stopped eventually, it isn't here. Does he finish Kevin Lee? I don't think so, but given the main card status I think he does beyond 100% to try and make a name for himself and land a top 10 opponent.

Anderson vs. Walker
Johnny Walker, TKO, R1
How do you root for Anderson here? Walker is exciting for the division and Anderson is just another boring wrestler who will get slaughtered by Jon Jones.

Burgos vs. Amirkhani
Shane Burgos, DEC
I think Burgos stuffs enough takedowns from Amirkhani to win a split decision. This is a tough fight stylistically for Burgos, but I think he's going to know the game plan and avoid most of the takedowns.

Tavares vs. Shahbazyan
Edmen Shahbazyan, TKO, R2
I love what I see out of Shahbazyan. I see a young fighter with good fight IQ and a lot of power and determination. I think Tavares comes out of the gate slow and gets finished early in the second round.

Arlovski vs. Rozenstruik
Jairzinho Rozenstruik, TKO, R1
Man, how do you pick Arlovski at this point in his career? His chin is holding up, but eventually it has to let him down, right? Rozenstruik by round 1 KO, hopefully Arlovski isn't carried out in a stretcher. Disclaimer: If Arlovski survives the first round power, I think he wins a decision.

Chookagian vs. Maia
Katlyn Chookagian, DEC
Maia is very hittable and I think Chookagian takes advantage of that and wins a comfortable decision, but Maia is a live dog. If it wasn't for Chookagian having such good footwork, I'd say Maia has a chance, but Chookagian is too fast for Maia.

Good vs. Rencountre
Lyman Good, TKO, R1
A lot of people are on Recountre after taking advantage of guys with poor ground games, and although Lyman got submitted by Maia, you have to look at his body of work as a whole. He's fighting in front of his home crowd and I think he finishes Recountre in the first round.

Arce vs. Dawodu
Hakeem Dawodu, DEC
I think this fight stays on the feet and Dawodu pieces up Arce from range with jabs and leg kicks. I'll go with Dawodu by comfortable unanimous decision.

Predictions: 5 of 8 Winners, 3 Perfect, 350 Points   |   Tied for 2118th

Masvidal vs. Diaz
Nate Diaz, TKO, R4
I have a feeling Jorge will gas trying to knock out Nate in the early rounds and Nate's pressure will get him a 4th round finish

Anderson vs. Walker
Johnny Walker, TKO, R1
If Walker gets the KO, it happens in the first round (possibly a flying knee in the first 10 seconds)

Burgos vs. Amirkhani
Shane Burgos, TKO, R3
I think Burgos is on another level.

Predictions: 6 of 11 Winners, 1 Perfect, 340 Points   |   Tied for 2173rd

Gastelum vs. Till
Kelvin Gastelum, TKO, R1
Given Till's lack of head movement and tendency to keep his hands low in response to forward movement, his defense heavily relies on distance management. Didn't matter against many of his previous opponents, because he was able to secure a lot of backward space with his foot on the gas. Not sure if the same can happen against Kelvin who was able to effectively close the distance on numerous occasions against the longer Adesanya.
