Natan Schulte could beat anyone in this tourney including Islam. Hopefully like you said this tournament will not have any injuries ruining it.

Those 2 weight class were boring during the regular season. I hope the 2 fight in one night format make some change in it.

Prediction Comments

Predictions: 2 of 7 Winners, 1 Perfect, 125 Points   |   Tied for 267th

Wade vs. Andrews II
Chris Wade, DEC
I really thought Nate Andrews woulda looked a little better than he did, And to my eyes, Chris Wade has looked maybe the best he's ever looked, and I think the majority is in agreement with that statement, considering 89% are backing Wade..

Mamedov vs. Radzhabov
Islam Mamedov, DEC
Islam Mamedov is my pick to take this thing home. Remember, he already fought and submitted last year's champ, Natan Schulte a few years back when PFL was still WSOF. And Loik Radzhabov is tough, he's beaten everyone in his career (Pro / Am) except the guys that are on another level, still only 2 career losses to Gadzhi Rabadanov and Rashid Magomedov. No worries about losing to those guys, but unfortunately... Mamedov is better than those guys, and i don't see Radzhabov ending Islam's outstanding 17 fight win streak.

Schulte vs. Nijem
Natan Schulte, DEC
Natan Schulte is a stud that hardly anyone's ever heard of prior to the beginning of last season. Aside from dropping the previously mentioned fight to Islam Mamedov few years back, and the draw he gave up to Johnny Case, Schulte been unbeaten in last 18 fights (16-1-1). That's hard thing to do even if you're fighting a buncha guys nobody knows about. And Ramsey Nijem. God. He's one of those guy's I just hate for no good reason really. 1 of the guys that would definitely go on my top 10 list of guys I love seeing finished. Along with James Vick. God I hope Schulte strangles Nijem.

Laurentino vs. Kennedy II
Luis Rafael Laurentino, TKO, R2
The regular season points system sets up yet another 1st round, playoff rematch. "Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger" (still cracks me up) is gonna be looking for redemption on a 20 some second KO loss to Laurentino. You look at everything, Kennedy got to and did Alright in the UFC. You could say that every opponent Kennedy has faced throughout his career, is better than anyone Laurentino has faced. Print has a better gym, you'd feel safe taking Kennedy here. Even considering Laurentino is an outstanding 34–2. Yessss. His record is arguably severely padded. He didn't fight anyone the majority have heard of, until his 30th fight. These little known guys, with fantastic records are always questionable to me. Even a couple fights in, I'm still trying to get a read on this guy. But, i don't think Kennedy is as hungry or something as he used to seem. I don't wanna say uncommitted, I just think he never really processed in his skillset. He's still the same dude he's always been. And that's not gonna work when headed into a rematch that you took a look loss from. He's gotta do something different and I'm not sure he can.

Khaybulaev vs. Pineda
Movlid Khaybulaev, TKO, R2
Movlid Khaybulaev has made the PFL Featherweight Division exciting... Lord knows Harrison and Palmer put pl to sleep...... Annnd not by finish, but because they're boring as ****!

Prediction Comments

Predictions: 3 of 7 Winners, 1 Perfect, 175 Points   |   Tied for 153rd

Aliev vs. Magomedov
Rashid Magomedov, DEC
Magomedov is so damn good at not getting hit with clean shots. The only way I see Aliev winning is with a ko shot, and I don't think he'll be able to pull it off.

Schulte vs. Nijem
Natan Schulte, DEC
Should be an easy win.

Laurentino vs. Kennedy II
Jeremy Kennedy, DEC
This is a toss up imo. I do think Kennedy is more aware of the power of Japa this time around tho, so i'll go with a decision win for Jeremy.

Gilpin vs. Harrison
Andre Harrison, DEC
Another Snoozefest decision win for Harrison.

Khaybulaev needs to win this. I know hes going to beat pineda. however i just feel if he goes up against lance palmer or Andre Harrison. Palmer would just beat him by takedowns and ground control. And 
Andre will beat him by the same damn thing. PFL needs to pickup featherweights next year that are known for their knockout power or submission gound games.


They need to pickup these fighters:

Brazil: Rafael Barbosa 2 TKOS

Japan: Shoko Sato he has 4 TKOs

Australia: Michael "the Great White" Tobin has 4 submission wins

PFL just picked Lance Palmer because he fights for Team Alpha Male. He great strategic fighter but hes boring.
