Tap doesn't say it yet, but JDS vs. Curtis Blaydes is the main with Frankie Edgar making his BW debut against Cory Sandhagen as the co.... just my opinion, but JDS and Cory are taking these ones home

I think Edgar beats Sandhagen and I think the JDS/Curtis Blaydes could go either way.

Sandhagen will easily beat Frankie, unfortunately. Way too big, way too mobile, way too unorthodox. Frankie won't get finished but he will lose a clear 30-27.

JDS/Blaydes is harder to think about. My initial instinct is JDS by decision.

Kish vs. Pudilová
Justine Kish, DEC
Never picking Lucie again lol, Kish for the W

Lewis vs. Amedovski
Alen Amedovski, DEC
This is honestly a loser leaves town match, I think both guys aren’t great at all but Lewis looked horrid in his last fight so I’m picking Alen to win a decision in a very bland fight just a regular 29-28 UD.

McMann vs. Länsberg
Lina Länsberg, TKO, R2
Lina looked very sharp in her last two so I am expecting her to elbow Sara’s face in for 2 rounds to get a doctor stoppage

Van Buren vs. Cifers
Brianna Van Buren, DEC
Unlike Cifers, Van Buren looked phenomenal last time out. I expect another sharp performance by Brianna and I think she will easily get a unanimous 30-26 scorecard

Predictions: 9 of 12 Winners, 4 Perfect, 550 Points   |   Tied for 348th

Blaydes vs. dos Santos
Junior dos Santos, TKO, R1
Blaydes is a great wrestler obviously, and could win by TKO late in a very boring fight, but he's very chinny and doesn't have great defense, and JDS still hits like a brazilian truck.

dos Anjos vs. Chiesa
Rafael dos Anjos, DEC
RDA is still the ultimate gatekeeper to the top 5 at WW.

Emmett vs. Allen
Josh Emmett, TKO, R3
I wasn't very impressed by Allen against the shell of Mélendez. Emmett is dangerous until the very end, I think he will eventually catch him.

Kish vs. Pudilová
Lucie Pudilová, DEC
Pudilova is a fun fighter to watch... Well, if she can keep the fight standing.

Lewis vs. Townsend
Bevon Lewis, DEC
Lewis impressed me against Hall (well, until he got brutally ko'd), but was very disapointing against Stewart, so I'm interested to see what he can do against lesser competition.

McMann vs. Länsberg
Sara McMann, DEC
Great to see McMann is back after having a baby! Rooting for her, but it's a tough fight...

Landwehr vs. Burns
Herbert Burns, SUB, R2
Landwehr is an absolute mad man and I'm glad he was signed by the UFC, his last fights were very fun to watch. That being said, his defense on the ground isn't great, and Herbert Burns finished 6 of his 8 wins by submission...

Blaydes only get knocked out by N'gannou, I don't think that mean he have a bad chin.

Dos Santos was KO by Overeem, I think since USADA is chin is most suspect then Blaydes chin.

Yeah Blaydes isn't chinny at all. Even Francis never knocked him out cold he was still conscious. He ate a knee from Overeem and a bomb from Hunto too he's got one of the best chins in the division.

About Blaydes chin...

Predictions: 9 of 12 Winners, 4 Perfect, 550 Points   |   Tied for 348th


I agree that on paper, being KO'd by Ngannou, and badly hurt by a Hunt punch and a Overreem knee isn't the sign of a Week chin.
However, if I remember correctly, he was also hurt by Oleinik in their fight…

JDS hits very hard, and Blaydes defense is not good at all, so I guess we will see how good his chin really is...

Remember when Overeem kneed him right on the chin and he barely got rocked?

Hearing rumours that Narimani might be out of the Lentz fight, possible re-booking of Allen vs Lentz to keep both fighters on the card. Would love to see that happen, injuries have ****** this card up enough and Allen is so much fun to watch

Nate Landwehr, TKO, R1
This Landwehr guy looks pretty dangerous from his record and Herbert Burns looks like someone who recklessly throws haymakers with zero technique and tries getting longshot subs off his back. I'll go with the favorite on this one by rd 1 ko.

Since at least the first N'gannou fight (last 9). Blaydes has been varying degrees of large favorite every fight.

JDS has only ben dogged once before since 2014, (+140 Stipe)

Doesn’t JDS have great takedown defense?? Ngannou was able to brush off Blaydes takedowns and TKO’d him quickly. I think JDS can pull it off and win TKO.

Well, I wouldn't say Ngannou was able to 'brush off' Blaydes' take down defense, it was more a case of him getting slaged on entry.
