lol Colby is a ******, but he's not a ****** for the reasons people think he is...that's all an act. I like him because he's always fronting sexy girls and pissing people off, which is more than Usman ever does or Woodley ever did.

Also Colby is a Trump supporter so extra props. # MAGA. Trollby by Trump Curse.

Also Damian I can't join your game because Mikey keeps inviting me to boxing comps and I make no picks in them and lose all my chips.

Trump is actually doing a good Job, but you wouldn't know that if you listen to MSM exclusively. Stock prices are soaring, strong USD, unemployment down (especially black unemployment) ISIS being wiped out, China on the back foot, wall getting built, border apprehensions down. If Trump was a Democrat MSM would be fawning over his nuts.

Signed an executive order which targets antisemitism today, too. Basically now Jews are protected under racial discrimination Laws, because they are now recognized as a race. Much needed given how Jews are being targeted on College Campuses because 'Uzrael is evil bra!'.

Also agreed that I'm slowly starting to root for Covington more, but because Usman just seems so annoying.

I can't stand people like Usman. Reps his nation of Birth but does absolutely ******* nothing to help improve it. Say what you want about Adesanya but he actually DOES.

I don't know but it's probably similar to Adesanya born in Nigeria but raised in new Zealand

Brown vs. Saunders
Ben Saunders, DEC
Flip a coin. Winner should retire, loser should retire.

Teymur vs. Hooper
Chase Hooper, SUB, R3
To be honest I haven't watched any footage on Hooper, but I do know Teymur makes questionable decisions. I think the first two rounds are close, but Hooper takes advantage of a bonehead decision and chokes him out.

Moreno vs. Kara-France
Kai Kara-France, DEC
I think Moreno is by far the best fighter that Kai Kara has ever went up against, but I think he lands cleaner shots on the feet and avoids Moreno's submission attempts when it hits the ground and wins a close decision.

Eye vs. Araujo
Viviane Araujo, TKO, R3
My initial reaction was "why is Eye the underdog here?", then I started to look at her past fights a bit closer and realized Vivi should just be too fast, too aggressive, and too much for Jessica to handle. I think Araujo dances around her landing quick shots and really starts to lay it on her late in the fight. I'm going late round 3 TKO.

Soriano vs. Piechota
Punahele Soriano, DEC
I don't think Soriano should be this big of a favorite against a fighter that has UFC experience, but I haven't watched enough footage to make a fair assessment of his skills. I'll follow the predictions, but go with a close split decision win with grappling exchanges between the two.

I think the biggest fight of his career would be him fighting for the title. You know,  the domination of  Woodley.

Yes, Usman was born in and lived in Nigeria til he was 11,12.

I'm starting to flip flop on my Covington pick!  I listen to too many of these breakdown shows/podcasts and it messes with my picks!  I just listened to some wrest;ing expert explain in detail how much better Usmans wrestling is and his college career was much more impressive, despite him  being D2, his class/year was a much stronger group than covingtons, relatively weak class.
****!!!!!  I was convinced a day ago, know I don't have a clue who to pick???
