Michał Oleksiejczuk v Jimmy Crute
Oleksiejczuk, TKO r2

Oleksiejczuk is gonna piece him up. Really wish he'd lose a few kilos and drop to MW. Dude has some slick hands. Way too small to get into the upper tier of LHW. Gotta respect him though. He's virtually the same size, frame, and height as Till. But, rather than cut to WW, he started out saying, fckit.

Mustafaev vs. Riddell
Magomed Mustafaev, TKO, R1
This fight will not even be close. Brad Riddell looked awful in his last fight against Mullarkey, Mustafaev is a completely different animal to Mullarkey. There is only one way this fight is going to end and thats Riddell getting violently KO'd.

Felder vs. Hooker
Paul Felder, DEC
Both are great fighters, but Felder may be too big for Hooker. He fought competitive fights at welterweight (the Perry war comes to mind) and Hooker used to be a featherweight... I think Felder will mix his muay thaï and the takedowns to win a very close decision, but Hooker with a late finish on a fading Felder wouldn’t surprise me

Crute vs. Oleksiejczuk
Michał Oleksiejczuk, TKO, R3
Both beasts. Future contenders maybe. May the best fighter win.

Kowalkiewicz vs. Yan
Karolina Kowalkiewicz, DEC
I know I shouldn’t pick KK here, but hell I’m a irrational fan.

Tukhugov vs. Aguilar
Kevin Aguilar, DEC
Tukhugov is the better fighter, but his gas tank is terrible. He will dominate one round then Ridell’s insane pace and durability will prevail.

Matthews vs. Meek
Emil Weber Meek, TKO, R2
Going for the upset here, Meek is powerful and crazy enough to win that.

Kara-France vs. Nam
Tyson Nam, TKO, R2
I trust Tyson Nam to be much better than he was vs Sergio Pettis with a full camp.

Lookboonmee vs. Hill
Loma Lookboonmee, DEC
I love Hill, but Lookboonmee really impressed me in her last fight.

Dobson vs. Cachoeira
Priscila Cachoeira, TKO, R2
Cachoeira just throws haymakers and I think Dobson has terrible defense (Cachoeira does as well), but she's an actual zombie and I don't think Dobson has the power to deture her from moving forward and cracking her with huge shots.

Pitolo vs. Sato
Maki Pitolo, TKO, R1
I think Sato will be faster and the "longer" fighter in there, but I can see him leaning in to hit Pitolo and getting countered with a big shot. Pitolo looked good against Potter, but he lacked defense and got out grappled and if he tightened up that defense then I think he can knock out Sato. Sato can very easily knock out Pitolo as well.

Mustafaev vs. Riddell
Brad Ridell, DEC
One of the few underdogs I like on this card. Riddell showed some real grit in his first outing putting in on  Jamie Mularkey. Certainly a huge step up in competition, but I truly think they found a gem here at 55 another City Kickboxing product I'm assuming they will come in with a smart gameplan for Mustafaev. Kevin Lee laid the blueprint exposing him on the ground, although no easy task Riddell should be able to grind this one out with a lot of grappling and sticking and moving to avoid the heavy relied on spinning attacks of Magomed. Should he come with the same grappling acumen had in past fights I see Riddell being able to dictate where fight takes place.

Felder Hooker has Fight of the Night written all over it. I expect a back and forth war with Hooker edging him on the scorecards. I'd like to see the winner face Justin Gaethje.

I don't think it will, Hooker just come of a win againts Iaquinta. He will outpoint Felder easy.

Crute vs. Oleksiejczuk
Jimmy Crute, SUB, R2
I looked at all the fights of Michał Oleksiejczuk and I can say one thing, this is a fighter of the 1st round which lasts for 3-4 minutes. Watch his fights with Ovince St. Preux and Khalil Rountree. Jimmy Crute before losing - he dealt good damage to Misha Cirkunov

This will be a great fight I give a slight edge in striking to dano but felder is unstoppable "except cuts" tall guy gasses late ko.

Crute vs. Oleksiejczuk
Michał Oleksiejczuk, TKO, R1
Yep neither are a lock but the only fight of crutes I saw was an early stoppage bs ko, he gets exploded or maybe lucky crapshoot.
