Tough card to pick, id be happy to win 6/11. It's also one of the few cards recently that I'm not super invested in any of the fighters, except Miller who I'm pulling hard for

Nobody can be confident in the main, but I’m with Cormier as much as I love Stipe. DC is the better all around mixed martial artist and that’s what’s going to win him the fight. He’s too smart

Predictions: 6 of 11 Winners, 4 Perfect, 440 Points   |   Tied for 780th

So ******* excited for this card ... main card is pretty stacked but not that much name value/substance on the prelims but it doesn't matter , that's normally when the prelims show out when you don't expect it... Goddamn i can't pick a winner on this main event im just not confident in either pick , but i went with DC by DEC even though thats a heart over mind pick a little bit

Junior can win I respect his boxing and his occasional kick or knee..
His reflexes are too slow though he must blitz rozie before he starts comboing it up he will lose badly.
Or use a combo breaker!! :>!! there is also the boring real world version, the jab.

Faux New Predictions

Predictions: 6 of 9 Winners, 4 Perfect, 400 Points   |   Tied for 1191st

Burns vs. Pineda
I like Herbert Burns at -260. He has a nasty hane goshi. Burns must capture the unthinkable.

Kamaka III vs. Kelley
I like Kai Kamaka III at -225. He has an incredible reverse side kick. Kamaka III ought to climb the cutman.

Souza vs. Yoder
I elect Livinha Souza at -165. She has a talented reverse side kick. Souza shall elevate the masterpiece.

Miller vs. Pichel
I want Vinc Pichel at -130. He has an original guillotine and a distinctive tai otoshi. Pichel might employ the cycle. Obey my dog!

Herrig vs. Jandiroba
I favor Virna Jandiroba at -290. She has a sassy full nelson. Jandiroba is about to leverage the enemy.

dos Santos vs. Rozenstruik
I prefer Jairzinho Rozenstruik at -130. He has a final counter left. Rozenstruik will employ the dissentient.

Brown vs. Chavez
I take TJ Brown at -130. He has a passionate crotch-hold. Brown will block the ring announcer.

Dodson vs. Dvalishvili
I am loyal to Merab Dvalishvili at -260. He has a underrated jab. Dvalishvili isn't about to boil the natural order.

O'Malley vs. Vera
I am all about Sean O'Malley at -265. He has an amazing liver kick. O'Malley is gonna overpower the rival.
