A moveable force vs a breakable object. This card is pretty trash if this stays co main. Hoping for the rare 14 fight card

Anderson vs. Błachowicz II
Jan Błachowicz, TKO, R2
The winner absolutely deserves a shot at the title, and yet it feels like neither of those can possibly beat Jones. Maybe Blachowicz can somehow make it interesting early if Jones have a bad night ?

Sanchez vs. Pereira
Diego Sanchez, DEC
Winnable fight for Sanchez. I love Capoeira Pereira, but his style is pure cardio suicide against a decent wrestler with huge experience and grind like Sanchez. The first round will be wild tho.

Sanchez vs. Pereira
Michel Pereira, TKO, R1
This has got to be one of the strangest pairings of 2 fighters, not for any great difference in ability or mismatch but simply for the reason that both fighters are absolutely mental.... pereira`s athletisim is very entertaining to watch however the dip in ability due to horrendous cardio issues if the fight gets out of the first round is painful to watch, despite being entertaining the blokes fight IQ must be well into the negatives as his continued decisions to bouce around the ocatogon performing flips, cartwheels and god knows what else is beyond stupid for a guy with severe cardios issues and was completely exposed by tristian connely in his last fight... whos tristan connelly you ask? well i think that says enough but just to quickly sum him up, he`s half pereira`s size and an extremely below average fighter however made pereira look useless in their fight by simply letting him drain himself in the first round performing a gynastics routine and then absolutely little brothered him for the second and third round. there is no denying that pereira has power and should he connect flush like he did in his UFC debut then it will be goodnight irene for sanchez. As for Diego sanchez, where pereira is abnormal in the octagon, sanchez is abnormal outside of it, the bloke has clearly taken so many beatings throughout his carear that he has clearly lost the plot to some extent, the stuff he comes out with is very entertaining but absolute gibberish. he is certainly now a few sandwiches short of a picnic. As for a winnner in this fight, if you could rely on pereira to focus and fight smart then it would be his all day long but you simply cant, the bloke is a lose cannon, however with sanchez`s no fear and happy to trade bombs kind of style, i do feel that it will play perfectly into pereira`s hands and ultimately allow him to land something nasty which will swicth the lights off for sanchez in the first round, should be a very entertaining fight if nothing else.

Kenney vs. Dvalishvili
Casey Kenney, DEC
The betting lines for this truely are baffling me, i cannot understand how casey kenny is the underdog in this fight, i see this being a relatively close contest but i still see casey kenny coming out with the decision victory, in his last 2 outing in the UFC hes beat ray borg who despite having his injury issues is still young and very talented, hes also coming off a win against manny bermudez adding the first proffessional loss to bermudez`s 14-0 record and i cant see him slipping up here. Dvalishvili isnt by any means terrible but i dont think he is good enough to get the W over casey kenny in this one.

I'll take Sanchez by sub. Flippy man does flips is not a good reason to trash the reputation of Diego.

Merab Dvalishvili is trained by Matt Serra, so his BJJ skills should be pretty good, and he's from the Republic of Georgia, which has a lot of great Judoka and wrestlers.
