I really hate the Paige vs Ribas fight. I think its a mismatch and Ribas will beat the **** out of Paige really bad. I am thinking its the last fight on Paiges contract, Paige is asking for more money because she is a big star now, and this is the UFC's way of humbling Paige and negotiating tactics. Having her beat to a pulp, is gonna make her demanding more money and better contract very difficult.

VanZant vs. Ribas
Amanda Ribas, DEC
I saw a comment that expressed what I think about this fight and it went something like this: Ribas much more talented than PVZ....she gonna eat her. PVZ trash in fighting let be honest. She a baddie and a good entertainer but not a fighter.

Munhoz vs. Edgar
Pedro Munhoz, TKO, R1
Pretty good fight by FE is washed. PM is washed too but PM got more gas in the tank and explosiveness, especially after the training video I saw. PM is at ATT and theyre open. FE gym isnt open right now. FE is chasing around his kids.

VanZant vs. Ribas
Amanda Ribas, SUB, R1
VanZant is a nice person and is sexy and all, but let’s be real, she can’t fight that well. She is sloppy and she should be in Bellator. Ribas has been looking very sharp lately with nice kickboxing and a heavy ground game. either Ribas grinds out Paige, or she submits her early.

Munhoz vs. Edgar
Pedro Munhoz, TKO, R2
Munhoz is faster than Frankie and Frankie is a bit washed up and is getting up there in his age, putting up lackluster performances in his last two fights, especially in the Jung mismatch. Pedro knocked out Cody Garbrandt, and even though he lost to Aljamain Sterling dominantly, it will probably be a depressing knockout win against Frankie Edgar. Frankie’s wrestling has seemed to fade tremendously in his last two fights also. If Frankie can get his wrestling back on point by the time this happens and he’s able to clinch up Pedro, i see a path to victory for him. H

That was weird well stupid accent goofy general demeanor and lies about height.
Her resume does not impress my money would be on the redneck gangster but wmma is way too much a crap shoot to bet.
Depending on how she healed I see paige having better chance at finish goofy dog lover winning decision based on numbers. 
Anybody counting frankie out should go back to playing fortnite.

wow boys he's right about Amanda Ribas's height she claims to be 5'3 or 5'4 but check these pics out Ribas is 5'6 at least (weigh in face offs from both Brasilia and Tampa show Ribas, Markos, Dern all wearing black UFC slippers that add 0.5" to 1" MAX) no way she is as tall as she says she is but i guess she's smart to trick her opponents when they search her up lol id still smash tho :)

nah fam this is actually bothering me this has to be some sort of conspiracy we gotta call up Eddie Bravo cause there’s no way Ribas is shorter than or even same height as Dern and Markos who are both 5’4 man I’m in too deep if u don’t here from me again you know “they” got me
