Brunson vs. Shahbazyan
Edmen Shahbazyan, TKO, R1
This is a lock.

Calderwood vs. Maia
Joanne Calderwood, DEC
My biggest bet on the card.

Luque vs. Brown
Vicente Luque, TKO, R1
1st or 2nd round TKO. 2nd biggest bet on the card.

Green vs. Vannata II
Lando Vannata, TKO, R1
I think he comes out and finishes the job he started last time.

Holland vs. Giles
Kevin Holland, DEC
Could be a finish too. Giles is over-rated based off his "win" against Krause.

Saenz vs. Martinez
Frankie Saenz, DEC
If Saenz uses his wrestling and old-man strength he can win a decision. Otherwise, he's getting ko'd.

Maness vs. Munoz Jr.
Nathan Maness, TKO, R2
No idea, I don't follow the regional Kentucky circuit.

Maness vs. Munoz Jr.
Nathan Maness, DEC
Sheesh. A classic striker vs grappler. I got Nate here. Johnny has great grappling skills, but the striking is so passive. Maness can crack on the feet, but there's little evidence of his grappling to support any of that. Only going with nate because I can see him having more meaningful moments. I wouldn't mind a KO, but I dunno.

Green vs. Vannata II
Bobby Green, TKO, R1
Groovy looked like he didn't really want to be there at the weigh ins and during the face off, but Green looks ready to bang. Green KO

Holland vs. Giles
Kevin Holland, DEC
Will we see the Kevin Holland that ****s around for 15 minutes? I think no crowd actually helps him and he just wants to get in & out. Maybe Holland by sub/tko but I'm going with decision.

Saenz vs. Martinez
Jonathan Martinez, TKO, R3
I think Saenz fades late

Maness vs. Munoz Jr.
Nathan Maness, TKO, R1
Maness has good boxing and should piece this dude up.

Emmers vs. Cachero
Jamall Emmers, TKO, R2
Emmers might be too long and too big for Cachero.

Gutierrez vs. Durden
Cody Durden, DEC
I think Durden can get the takedowns.

I was on the fence with the pick

I looked at luque, he’s been through wars and I start to worry about guys chins. I also looked at brown, he’s not a very big underdog going into this fight. Sure he got ko’d by price by it was a weird fluky kind of ko, his fight with bilal was close and he got choked out by graves but I doubt this fight hits the ground.

He also has height and reach advantage

Would I be surprised if he loses, no. Because luque has certainly been up against better competition

But I feel 90% tapologist was surprisingly strong with regards to this fight

Brunson vs. Shahbazyan
Edmen Shahbazyan, TKO, R1
Bumson being fed to another potential star lol

Calderwood vs. Maia
Jennifer Maia, DEC
Esparza vs Rodriguez. McCann vs Santos. I don't know why everyone is on Calderwood lol

Luque vs. Brown
Randy Brown, DEC
Odds on Luque are definitely off. Randy Brown is an extremely tough matchup for Luque. Brown definitely has the power to put Luque down if Luque's eating shots like he did vs Wonderboy.

Green vs. Vannata II
Bobby Green, DEC
Bobby Green should absolutely not be an underdog in this fight lol

Emmers vs. Cachero
Jamall Emmers, TKO, R2
I feel bad Cachero has to fight Emmers.

Brunson vs. Shahbazyan
Edmen Shahbazyan, TKO, R2
Can easily see Brunson winning this. Was surprised to see him as the shorter fighter at weigh-ins. HATE the blond hair.

Calderwood vs. Maia
Jennifer Maia, DEC
I have a bad feeling about this fight so I'm sacrificing my pick to the MMA gods so that Joanna may win

Luque vs. Brown
Vicente Luque, TKO, R2
Brown looked much improved in his last fight, would be surprised but not shocked if he pulled off the upset

Green vs. Vannata II
Lando Vannata, DEC
This time the coin said Lando

Herman vs. Meerschaert
Gerald Meerschaert, DEC
Very underrated fight imo. I'd give Meerschaert the edge but not nearly as much as the pick %.

Holland vs. Giles
Kevin Holland, DEC
Impressive that he KOed Neal even if it was 3 1/2 yrs ago

Maness vs. Munoz Jr.
Nate Maness, DEC
My coin said Maness

Emmers vs. Cachero
Jamall Emmers, TKO, R1
Emmers being given a softball. If he doesn't knock it out of the park i.e. impressive finish, I think he's pegged as prospect feed

Saenz vs. Martinez
Frankie Saenz, DEC
Well, here's an interesting one. Another striker vs grappler? I say "grappler?" because that's all I got from frankie in 2 years. I'm not putting money on this fight, but I feel like this is totally a pick em'. I can't respect Martinez as a moderate favourite after seeing durability issues and lack of proper gameplan. This fight could be close. If that's the case, you gotta give frankie a chance here. I can try.
