Kattar vs. Ige
Calvin Kattar, TKO, R3
Good matchup of strikers. Kattar is a very tough guy, Kattar dropped Ige in the 3rd Round and finish with Ground and Pound.

Munhoz vs. Edgar
Pedro Munhoz, TKO, R1
Pedro has a very dangerous striking, Frankie is no longer what he was. I think Peter will be very accurate and fast, and I see another heartbreaking knockout.

Esparza vs. Rodriguez
Marina Rodriguez, DEC
Marina always has strange fights, maybe it will end in a majority draw.

Lipski vs. Carolina
Ariane Lipski, SUB, R2
Lipski has more experience, She is a Former KSW Champion!

Razak Alhassan vs. Lazzez
Mounir Lazzez, DEC
Judo Thunder is One Round Gas Tank, Lazzez will surely fight smartly in his UFC Debut.

Bukauskas vs. Moreira
Modestas Bukauskas, TKO, R1
Mamute was easily rocked in his previous fights, Easy debut for Bukauskas.

Jojua vs. Belbitâ
Diana Belbiţă, DEC 
Belbitâ has a decent striking and BJJ, I see her superior for this fight.

Ramos vs. Murphy
Ricardo Ramos, SUB, R1
In his last fight Ramos took his back and submitted quickly, I think he will repeat the same method of victory.


Postdata: my post at the UFC Fight Night Eye vs. Calvillo had 5 thumbs down. Seriously? I only share my opinions regarding the possible outcomes of the fight card, it's a subjective assessment that does not seek to offend any fighter or his fans. If reading it causes you negativity, I suggest something better: don't give it a thumbs-down, challenge me and prove me wrong. It is better to demonstrate it in a sporting way than criticizing anonymously.

Kattar vs. Ige
Calvin Kattar, TKO, R3
Ige is starting to grow on me. Nice guy and I am a fan. Sadly, I think Calvin is going to brutally knock him out with his powerful and crisp boxing. A nice main event I would say. Kattar is the next level and if the Zabit fight would have been 5 rounds like it should have been then he would’ve rallied to get the win.

Munhoz vs. Edgar
Pedro Munhoz, TKO, R3
I’ve already predicted this fight but why not do it again? Look, Pedro is very powerful and fast and I see a depressing knock out win for him. Pretty simple. Frankie is starting to fade like a lot of guys his age and for me he doesn’t have anything left to prove. But hey the UFC hates him so what the hell. Nice payday I guess. Now go in there, make a few thousand, and please for the sake of God retire.

Lipski vs. Carolina
Ariane Lipski, DEC
Both aren’t that great but I’m leaning Lipski. Ehh one of the many skip worthy fights on this otherwise pretty sweet fight night card.

Razak Alhassan vs. Lazzez
Abdul Razak Alhassan, TKO, R1
Oh man is this guy powerful. Welcome back Razak.

McCann vs. Santos
Molly McCann, DEC
I am a huge fan of Molly. Fun personality and is a beast inside the cage. She leaves it all out there and puts on some fun fights on the feet and swings for the fences while still being technical enough to snag dominant wins. Did I mention her ruthless takedowns? Not the best fighter ever, but a damn fun one to watch and I am psyched to see her return.

Gordon vs. Fishgold
Chris Fishgold, SUB, R2
Let’s go Walmart Anthony Smith!!!

Jojua vs. Belbiţă
Diana Belbiţă, DEC
Two cans man. The Warrior Princess by decision. I would rather sit in a prison cell and have a drunk and angry Yoel Romero who is for some reason raising his fists at me go at me than watch this pile of solitary confinement nutra-loaf.

Calvin Kattar   vs.   Dan Ige 



Tough, tough fight to pick. Ige could be a good value play by something depending on what the lines are. Both of these guys have excellent, crisp boxing...but Kattar is superior in that regard, and carries considerably more power which is saying something because Ige hits hard. This is kind of a pickem and Ige shouldn't be written off. I'm picking Kattar because Barboza was finding Ige with his hands, and if he can do that Kattar probably will also with far more impactful results. Kattar, KO/TKO R2.





Carla Esparza   vs.   Marina Rodriguez 



Esparza is predictable. If you've seen her fight once, you've seen her fight every other fight she has ever had or will ever have. Her strategy never varies; throw pitter-patter in close and try to set up the takedown. If her performances were birds, they'd be crows. Utterly indistinguishable from one another.


I like Rodriguez, though I was not impressed by her performance against Cavillo. That said, I think ugly cindy didn't turn up for the esparza fight, and I might pick her in a rematch....so the TDD issue doesn't worry me as much as it otherwise might. I'm going to give Marina the benefit of the doubt; I think she can keep this off the mat and punch ten shades of **** out of the troll doll. I hope so, anyway. KO/TKO R2.

Kattar vs. Ige
Dan Ige, DEC
85% just wrote IGE off...this is crazy,you do remember that he just beat barboza,right?5 rounds fight will be close but 48-47 X 2 and one PC judge that will make it 47-47

Munhoz vs. Edgar
Pedro Munhoz, TKO, R3
i wish Edgar did it before he fought Ortega but now his chin is suspicious, i see munhoz win in ko R3

Esparza vs. Rodriguez
Marina Rodriguez, DEC
it is crazy that Esparza is in winning streak consider the fact she didn't really give any reason to win in the last fight. i do hope marina will finish her but she doesn't have the proof to show that,she did get rob twice after winning markos and calvillo fight for sure, i hope she won't be another case of Esperanza boring fight style.

Razak Alhassan vs. Lazzez
Abdul Razak Alhassan, TKO, R1
Razak need to be undefeated, but for this fight-he will knock lazzez cold in R1

Gordon vs. Fishgold
Chris Fishgold, DEC
both of them did so much noise...and then lost, fishgold is my pick but like i said- i dont think both of them is ufc level

Bukauskas vs. Moreira
Modestas Bukauskas, TKO, R1
easy ko in r1

McCann vs. Santos
Taila Santos, DEC
santos didn't lose the last fight...but she MUST be more active to beat meatball

I change my mind about Kattar after seeing the Stephens KO again. Ige is tough but Kattar is the better boxer.

The way Kattar knocked out Jeremy Stephens (Only TKO losses to Yves Edwards, then recently Jose Aldo by body shot)

I seriously was concerned for Jeremy Stephens after that knockout. Maybe it's the lack of crowd, you can hear and see everything. Now they've been muting certain parts.
