Brunson vs. Shahbazyan
Edmen Shahbazyan, TKO, R1
Typical prospect v gatekeeper. Odds similar to Adesanya v Brunson. Edmen finished Tavarez R1 KO (Israel took Tavares to a decision)

Luque vs. Brown
Vicente Luque, TKO, R3
Worth betting on if the odds are close

Actually much more happy with the new main event. Wish it was 5 rounds. You are already exhausted by the time the main event starts, then you have to suffer through Holly Holm's grunts and lack of anything exciting.

Predictions: 5 of 8 Winners, 1 Perfect, 290 Points   |   Tied for 452nd

Brunson vs. Shahbazyan
Edmen Shahbazyan, TKO, R1
Think Shahbazian is gonna win and Knock out Brunson but I think the line of +230 is a little high because beside knocking out Taveres what has he done. Brunson has been in form latley and I think Shabazian is gonna loss a fight or 2 soon before becoming Champ because he still need to learn stuff but think this is great stylistic matchup for him

Calderwood vs. Maia
Joanne Calderwood, DEC
Fun fight here between 2 fighter who loss to kaitlen,Who lose to Jessica Eye the goat. Ohhh Weee im exited. Think Calderwood will win but -185 is **** odds and 90% on tapology is bad and might switch to Maia to be different as the fight is a lot closer as both suck like a high price hooker

Luque vs. Brown
Vicente Luque, TKO, R1
Randy Brown is chinny getting Knock out by bottom and Luque throw bomb and I will never pick agest Luque never will because he one of my favourites

Shahbazyan a future star

Predictions: 4 of 8 Winners, 2 Perfect, 275 Points   |   Tied for 609th

For real, this card is better without the Holm vs. Aldana fight.  Shahbazyan is a future star, has so much talent technically and is still so young.  Dude is a problem and he will KO Brunson in the 1st round. Already placed a nice sized wager on the Edmen "The Golden Boy" Shahbazyan, straight up. Been on a heater lately, up +17u over the last couple of fight cards.

Green vs. Vannata II
Bobby Green, DEC
What the hell happened to Vannata ? He was awesome for three fights and a half (almost winning by KO on very short notice against a surging TONY FERGUSON, decapitating Makdessi with the second best spinning back kick after Barboza's, losing a close, fun and technical Fight Of The Night against the underrated David Teymur, then drawing with Bobby Green in a decent scrap). He was the hottest thing in the UFC in 2016, then 2017 happened and he was just a fun FOTN preliminary card brawler, then in 2018 he changed his style to a less flashy but well rounded arsenal, hélas the result, thus far, has been boring fights he's not winning very often... I thought he won the first Bobby Green fight, but Bobby looked great vs Guida, so I'm not sure about the rematch.

Yeah I may change my pick ed is a rising star no doubt, nice little highlight montage too.
Precision over power technique over twitch still put it 50/50 one shot derek can blow his head off not a tko.
I dont put much in that rhonda is his manager or has same coach he is a cool quite kid she was a flamboyant rockstar.
This fight will prove if he will be able to beat a bigger more experienced power striker.

Gutierrez vs. Durden
Chris Gutierrez, DEC
Dude, Gutierrez leg kicks are deadly! I hope Durden comes prepared for those. Durden seems like more of a submission fighter so Gutierrez might have to use those leg kicks and keep his distance. I'm guessing on a 3rd round KO or win by DEC by Gutierrez.

Perez vs. Spicely
Eric Spicely, DEC
Two submission artists usually means **** will even out to a decision. Could go either way, I think but I'm picking Spicely just because he trains will GSP.

Borg vs. Maness
Ray Borg, DEC
Borg's got really good wrestling. Maness has got a heavy reach advantage. Still going with Borg on this one. Late submission or DEC.

Holland vs. Giles
Kevin Holland, SUB, R3
don't rate Giles and he should of lost his last fight, Really like Kevin Holland and think hes a big talent when he tries to be

Saenz vs. Martinez
Jonathan Martinez, TKO, R2
Saenz is a chinny 40 year old Martinez isn't

Herman vs. Meerschaert
Gerald Meerschaert, SUB, R2
both meh in bad recent form, Meerschaert has fought better competition though and isn't 40

Borg vs. Maness
Nathan Maness, DEC
Borg has been a weight bully and relied on size throughout his career. gives up a lot of size to Maness, though his UFC experience might pull him through

Perez vs. Spicely
Markus Perez, SUB, R1
both grappler and feel Perez is the better grappler

Emmers vs. Valiev
Jamall Emmers, DEC
valiev advantage grappling but emmers has good striking but i think Valiev has a better chance but i got a feeling on emmers

Gutierrez vs. Durden
Chris Gutierrez, TKO, R2
Gutierrez will most likely abuse with leg kicks and has more experience, Durden has advantage in grappling but think Gutierrez gets it by finish or decision

Brunson vs. Shahbazyan
Derek Brunson, TKO, R1
Walker vs Anderson 2 (Maybe) i really rate Shaybazyan but Brunson only loses to the best Brunson is kinda chinny but not really, just have a feeling.

Calderwood vs. Maia
Joanne Calderwood, DEC
Maia unproven and fought nobody Calderwood has experience against better opponents and she's Scottish

Luque vs. Brown
Vicente Luque, TKO, R1
i feel like everything is pointing to a Luque win but he has taken a lo of damage and have a sneaky feeling of an upset but really should be a Luque win

Luque vs. Brown
Vicente Luque, TKO, R1
Brown doesn't have enough volume to deture Luque from pushing forward and landing clean shots. Luque has an effecient ground game if this does hit the mat. Luque wins everywhere.
