Prediction Comments

Predictions: 8 of 11 Winners, 4 Perfect, 555 Points   |   Tied for 99th

Miocic vs. Cormier III
Stipe Miocic, TKO, R3
Stipe KO in the 3rd or 4th. If it's DC's night, it'll be KO in the 1st. If this goes the distance, it'll be a miracle.

O'Malley vs. Vera
Sean O'Malley, TKO, R1
Despite Vera or O'malley never being finished, I can see O'malley TKO in the 1st or Vera SUB in the 2nd. I'm going with O'malley 1st TKO but DEC is probably safer.

dos Santos vs. Rozenstruik
Jairzinho Rozenstruik, TKO, R1
Rozen KO/TKO in the 1st or 2nd. There's also a decent chance of JDS by KO but I'm not crazy.

Dodson vs. Dvalishvili
Merab Dvalishvili, DEC
Merab by DEC because that's how he wins and because that's how Dodson doesn't win. Should be a fun one though.

Miller vs. Pichel
Vinc Pichel, DEC
Begrudginly going with a DEC for Pichel. The KO is there but I'm not counting on it. I was torn between this and Miller SUB in the 2nd. Pichel too damn old and Miller too many miles.

Souza vs. Yoder
Livinha Souza, DEC
High probability of me walking out of the room to get a beer. Souza by DEC, maybe split. Definitely going the distance.

Burns vs. Pineda
Herbert Burns, SUB, R1
Burns SUB in the 1st. We want it, Burns wants it, UFC wants it, Dana wants it. Brother Champions in UFC will be kinda cool and the UFC likes that.

Herrig vs. Jandiroba
Virna Jandiroba, SUB, R2
Jandiroba SUB in the 2nd maybe the 1st. If it goes the distance it's gonna be Jandiroba maybe by Split.

Brown vs. Chavez
Danny Chavez, DEC
Chavez by DEC but I'm not sold on it. High chance of Brown by SUB.

Daukaus vs. Porter
Chris Daukaus, TKO, R1
Daukaus by KO in the 1st but I'm not sold on it. Doubt this gets past 2 minutes.

Kamaka III vs. Kelley
Kai Kamaka III, DEC
Kamaka by DEC but don't be surprised by a Kelley upset

Dodson vs. Dvalishvili
Merab Dvalishvili, DEC
Dodson is quick as **** but before he KO'd Wood he was losing the fight, if Merab gets hold of him its going to be a long 15 mins for Dodson on the ground. My advice for Dodson would be to sprint round the cage and run away from Merab, throw the occasional punch and go for a decision.. which isn't going to happen. Merab decision for me, and more than 8 takedowns.

Souza vs. Yoder
Livinha Souza, DEC
Souza better in all aspects, dominant decision win.

Burns vs. Pineda
Herbert Burns, SUB, R1
UFC definitely pushing for Herbert to be big like Gilbert, Pineda being fed to the sharks here. Round 1 submission pending.

Herrig vs. Jandiroba
Virna Jandiroba, SUB, R2
Herrig been inactive for a while, Jandiroba got good submission skills.

Daukaus vs. Porter
Chris Daukaus, TKO, R1
A battle of 2 fat guys that are never going to be top 10 ranked. Gonna go with Daukaus but for no reason at all, hoping someone gets knocked the **** out because this match means absolutely nothing to the heavyweight division.

Kamaka III vs. Kelley
Kai Kamaka III, DEC
Don't know either of them, these debut fights can go either way but i'll take Kamaka based on stats.

Miocic vs. Cormier III
Stipe Miocic, TKO, R2
Another fight that literally could go either way, if Stipe is clever and uses his size advantage he could easily pick up the KO win again however if DC reverts to wrestling then Stipe is finished. Another very unconfident pick

O'Malley vs. Vera
Sean O'Malley, TKO, R1
Is the hype train legit? i think it is but im not condifent in it.. this is also not a confident pick, part of me see's O'malley once again showing he is legit and knocking Vera out but another part of me see's him getting a huge challenge and Vera possibly submitting him. Really excited to see how this one pans out.

dos Santos vs. Rozenstruik
Junior dos Santos, DEC
This really could go either way, not a confident pick at all but i just fancy JDS due to his experience as being one of the best heavyweights of all time, better boxing and better wrestling. Rozenstruik hasn't really been tested yet, he got his ass kicked by Overeem but picked up the late KO then got absolutely killed by Ngannou.. i just fancy JDS showing Rozenstruik it ain't easy as KO'ing Allen Crowder

Gilbert is way better than Herbert

Predictions: 3 of 11 Winners, 0 Perfect, 195 Points   |   3235th Place

I know I picked Burns and I talked him up in my estimate of how the fight unfolds, but don't act like he's Gilbert or that Pineda is a bum? Go watch Herbert's contender series fight, it's pretty short, but he gets f*cking destroyed for 99% of it. He's not that great yet and Pineda isn't just being fed to the sharks, even if that might be the intent. That being said, don't bet any money on Pineda lol.
