Ribas vs Vanzant

Predictions: 8 of 13 Pending   |   Tied for 1st with 2097 others

Ribas is too much for PVZ, wherever the fight goes ribas will dominate.
I like PVZ but she is getting her ass beat july 11th, she is simply not at that level yet, maybe it´s because of her injuries and all the time off but I cannot see her winning this fight at all.

Don't get why people are beating Ribas at -500 and this is comming from someone who been on the Ribas train since her UFC debut because Paige could win this fight because It not only MMA, It WMMA and upsets happen all the time

Paige is absolutely a spoiler she loves to get upsets and Ribas is overrated anyway.

RIBAS VS PVZ

Predictions: 13 of 13 Pending   |   Tied for 1st with 2097 others

In my opinion Paige doesnt think now about to become a champion or fighting and winning for ts, she has 2mln followers on instagram, she starts modeling where she has better and easier money.
She had very serious injury...


Ribas has ambition for big things in UFC.
She trains for it very hard every day.
Ribas in UFC in every next fight she looked better and better.
Only way to win this fight for PVZ is by sub, but Ribas dominate Dern on the ground.
Now it should look the same.
I predict ud dec for Ribas.

Paige will be in Bellator or ONE soon enough, maybe even PFL.

Another fairly horrific card to try and pick.


Jéssica Andrade   vs.   Rose Namajunas


Dec.

Sometimes Tapology can be pretty ********. The fact that over 80% of people are picking Namajunas here is proof positive of that. Rose has openly talked about not being sure whether she wants to continue fighting or not and said she was glad she lost the belt. It's quite possible she doesn't give a **** anymore. That, and it seems that people have forgotten how effortlessly Andrade planted her like a golf flag. Yes, rose had great success in the opening minutes...until Andrade adjusted. Those adjustments, I have to believe, will carry over to this fight.



Petr Yan   vs.   José Aldo
Dec.


Aldo is ******* good value as a dog here though and I may even take a punt on him. I'll take Yan due to how close the Moraes V Aldo fight was, and the fact that Yan was able to beat the best version of Jimmy Rivera that could possibly exist. And that guy is hard to beat for anyone.






Leonardo Santos   vs.   Roman Bogatov
Sub, R1.


Not impressed with Bogatov and Santos is good. Roman's record is basically composed of crushed Russian cans. Santos by Sub.




Elizeu Zaleski   vs.   Muslim Salikhov
Dec.

Salikhov is one of those guys whose record gets more confusing the more you watch him.He's flat-footed, throws very low volume, and never mixes anything up at all, yet somehow he's got a solid list of wins over some good names. That said, I'm not picking him here. I think Zaleski prances around chopping his lead leg and occasionally landing kicks to the body for a 30-27.

Predictions: 13 of 13 Pending   |   Tied for 1st with 2097 others


I watching Yan fights from his fights with Magomed Magomedo in ACB, all fights in UFC.
And I will told one thing:
Petr Yan is a beast.
Wrestling,stand up skills.aggression, excellent cardio.
He has everything to beat Aldo.
New UFC champion from russia is coming.

Just heard via chael sonnen that yan and aldo used to be training partners.
I was leaning towards yan in this fight but It is said that aldo got the better of yan in sparring, so maybe I am going to have to review my prediction.

from what i read Yan went and trained with him for a short time. Aldo was also at 45 and i think it was in between the Conor and Edgar fights. Yan was still very young in his career only having 6 fights at the time. I would hope Aldo got the better of it honestly being bigger and 1 fight removed from Champion for a long time. MMAFighting has a good article on it from a few weeks ago. https://www.mmafighting.com/2020/6/11/21286394/jose-aldo-petr-yan-training-brazil-knockout-ufc-251-eduardo-dantas

I like Pete Yan don’t get me wrong but is fighting for a title really warranted? He’s only beat the retired 40yo skateboarder Faber, Jimmie Rivera who might be a fraud, Douglas Andrade don’t hate that one even tho he’s a 125er and John Dodson who’s also a 125er. He should have fought sandhagen, but looking at 135 that division is really shallow

@Nicky Petr Yan ain't the Champ to he  beat the real champ at the moment Aljo. Aljo beat real contender and is getting ****** because he ain't markeble, UFC can go **** themselve and i might join my buddy Tepid on the ONE train because they treat they fighter better.

Volkanovski vs Zombie makes more sence then Volkanoski vs Max 2. Their first fight was not that close to make immediate rematch and also Holloway was a good champion but he was not like Aldo who was the best featherweight for very long time so really this match does not make much sense but still it will be a great match. Holloway needs to fight someone else (Like Yair or Kattar if Kattar wins against Ige) while Volkanovski and Zombie fight for title and then if Holloway wins and Volkanovski defends his title then UFC can book Holloway vs Max

@DamienHandel420

ONE's fans don't abandon fighters because they're "boring" or because they lose 1 fight.

P.S.

The main event of ONE Chamionship: Iron Will btween Bibiano Fernandes and Martin Nguyen is one of the the best fights in ONE Chamionship history in my opinion.

@tepid sources have told me that ONE is implementing a policy which will require all athletes to sell their first born child and their favorite pet into slavery, just a rumor though
