@fish my post was meant to be sarcastic since he's plagued by injury lost his belt whole country is burning. Sarcasm doesn't translate so good on thread posts. You're right of course.

Why the **** did guy get title shoot after lost? Did they start making optional defence like in boxing? Romero here and they also said it will be Aldo next at 135... This is ****...

For some reason I'm ok with Yoel getting one, but Aldo getting one in a division he is 0-1 in rubs me the wrong way

Middleweight has fewer options, 135 has plenty I suppose

Well Costa is out injured so I don't hate it. I've given up expecting the UFC to postpone fights in order to bring cohesion to the divisions.  I think this is a decent test for Adesanya, but that said, Romero has seemed to content to stay at the end of his opponent's range too much for my liking in his last few outings. Izzy is boned if Yoel ends up on top of him early though.

Cannonier signed to fight after the title shoot was announce. Should be him.

Cannonier also is on the exact same card and his opponent just pulled out. I'm not saying I think cannonier deserves title consideration yet, but sliding him in would've been so easy.

Till also could easily slide in, I agree he hasn't earned it yet either, but if you're arguing that Yoel deserves another title shot even though he's either lost/missed weight on every single attempt so far; I think a better argument can be made for both Gorillas.

Damn I knew I should've kept watching that post fight presser. After 15 minutes of Dana jerking off Conor I went to sleep.

Adesanya vs. Romero
Yoel Romero, TKO, R3
I can't shake the feeling that Adesanya may regret asking for this fight. He is by far the better striker and if he uses distance, feints and timing he could pick Romero apart all night long. But, I just have this feeling that Romero gonna catch him and put him out!

Zhang vs. Jędrzejczyk
Joanna Jędrzejczyk, DEC
This should be a great fight

Whitmire vs. Viana
Emily Whitmire, DEC
Zhang vs Joanna is the best of Women's MMA. This is the worst!

Cannetti vs. Batgerel
Danaa Batgerel, SUB, R2
I love we got a couple Mongols in the UFC now. I always back the MONGO!!!

Predictions: 8 of 11 Winners, 3 Perfect, 500 Points   |   Tied for 1079th


Adesanya vs. Romero
Adesanya, TKO r4
I don't see how Romero can win. If he uses his wrestling, he'll gas himself out. Adesanya has proven he has TDD on par with Whittaker's. He is an inferior striker. His main chance is to land a bomb, late in the fight as he did in Whittaker 2. However, in that fight I feel Whittaker punched himself out too early, allowing Romero the opportunity. Adesanya appears to have a stellar gas tank, and a formidable chin as well.

Zhang vs. Jędrzejczyk
Joanna Jędrzejczyk, DEC
As a Chinaman, I'd love to see Zhang take it. But, I don't see how she'll have the skillset to keep up with Joanna. She could out power her, but Joanna has faced that style before.


Beneil Dariush vs. Drakkar Klose
Dariush, DEC
Close fight, but Dariush is a vet and will use his wrestling to tire Klose out.

Neil Magny vs Jingliang Li
Li, TKO r3
Would've chosen Magny, until I saw Li fight Santos. What a breakthrough performance! Hopefully he doesn't get taken down and subbed.

Whitmire vs. Viana
Emily Whitmire, DEC
I predict Viana gets cut very soon.
