Fans can watch ONE Championship for free on that promotion's app or youtube or TNT instead of having to pay for ESPN+ and also having to pay separately for the pay-per-veiws.

Stipe's not the one who used Brock to duck a rematch and give Derrick Lewis a title shot.

Predictions: 6 of 9 Pending   |   Tied for 1st with 315 others

Miocic vs. Cormier III
Daniel Cormier, DEC
It isn’t a great card for a PPV so far, but this is a very important and great main event. All things considered, I think it will be a one-sided decision win for DC. In the rematch, we saw Cormier outclassing Stipe Miocic on the feet and on the ground. I think Daniel makes adjustments and gets his stomach stronger so he is able to take those nasty body shots this time around. I also see he is working with Mark Henry, a phenomenal striking coach. Daniel will most likely use his wrestling to get ridiculous and lopsided scorecards and I think it is a decision win because I just don’t see DC finishing Stipe again. I take this pick with mediocre confidence and I wouldn’t be wowed to see it go to Stipe.

dos Santos vs. Rozenstruik
Jairzinho Rozenstruik, TKO, R1
Oh man. Well, I guess I’ll make a pick. Jarzinho is a great fighter who has technique, power, and speed and he puts his combos together splendidly. Sure he got lknocked out cold in his last fight, but Francis Ngannou is the scariest and most powerful man alive possibly. And come on, Ngannou hits 100x harder than JDS. Dos Santos has power, but he is getting slower and is losing speed and is suffering from former legend still fighting syndrome. I hope Junior wins this, as he has a great and positive attitude and is humble in victory and defeat, and is a kind guy, but Jarzinho will most likely knock him out and move on. Both guys are in a weird spot in their careers. Junior is taking a ton of damage recently and he probably should retire as his best days are truly behind him.

Souza vs. Yoder
Ashley Yoder, DEC
Eck. Nope. Both girls are pretty bad fighters who looked terrible in their last fights. Souza is timid and sloppy and I just don’t know what’s up with Yoder. I am taking Yoder by decision but I honestly couldn’t care less.

Herrig vs. Jandiroba
Felice Herrig, SUB, R3
On paper, Herrig should take this one easily as she is the better fighter in my opinion, and is more experienced. However, only God knows how she is going to look returning after 1 year and 10 months off. Herrig is fighting a good jiu jitsu fighter, but she doesn’t really have her hands full here. Herrig by late submission after a beating.

Ankalaev vs. Cutelaba II
Magomed Ankalaev, TKO, R2
All I learned in the first fight which was a horrendous stoppage was that Magomed is the much better fighter with clean kickboxing and vicious knockouts. Ion doesn’t have great cardio and wastes his shots a bit, so I will take Magomed getting a first round victory, for real this time.

Staropoli vs. Imadaev
Laureano Staropoli, DEC
Staropoli never ceases the opportunity to disappoint me whenever he fights, but he has flashy striking and will probably win a close decision over a guy who has yet to win inside the octagon.

Miocic vs. Cormier III
Daniel Cormier, DEC
MARK MY WORDS, DC will come and will make ground clinic and won't let stipe breath, people forget that DC came as the champ and knock stipe way too easy so he didn't take it serious enough,so yes-shame on him that didn't take it serious but come on,stipe almost lost again in the first round again,so i see this this fight go to the judges and DC will know how to "close" each round so i will go with 49-46 X 2 and 48-47 just because we allways have one blind judge

dos Santos vs. Rozenstruik
Jairzinho Rozenstruik, TKO, R1
same story for bigi boy as his last fight-he is coming for your head ,ONE H-U-G-E difference, no Francis ,so KO for bigi boy in R1

Kape vs. Bontorin
Rogério Bontorin, DEC

Miocic vs. Cormier III

Stipe Miocic, TKO, R3
Stipe will be careful to avoid takedowns, connecting many shots to the body from the first round. It is the last fight of Daniel Cormier and it is very difficult for him to come out with the championship.

dos Santos vs. Rozenstruik
Jairzinho Rozenstruik, TKO, R1
Cigano has taken a lot of damage. Jairzinho is an excellent Kickboxer, his last defeat will give him experience, leaving aside his overconfidence. My Prediction: Bigi Boy by Knockout in the first half of Round 1.

Kape vs. Bontorin
Rogério Bontorin, DEC
UFC is another level, Bontorin by clear decision or late submission finish.

I'm still waiting

I'm waiting for somebody in the heavy weight division to prove this division isn't hurting by knocking this big clown out!

Strange how boxing heavy weight fighters are considered the best fighters but not with mma heavyweight. 

Hmmm hmmm hyrm!

Personally id say heavies are the worst, most rely on lucky punches.
Or massive weight and strength grappling ala brock lesnar or leg hump blanket wrestling cain.
Ill be rooting for warhorse but wont hold my breath dana still seems to think he the new franki ng.
