Good fights, but not really a strong card worth $65 imo. Main and co-main are definitely carrying the value of this card, but there have been free cards with better line-ups lately...

Probably should have put some of last night's fun fights onto this card. It's a steep drop off after the main and co main.

Reyes vs. Błachowicz
Jan Błachowicz, TKO, R5
Surprised that so many people are picking Reyes. I see Reyes dominating the opening 3 rounds, only for Blachowicz to find his rhythm in the fourth; ultimately, he will end up starching Reyes either very early, or very late in the final round.

Costa has got this

Predictions: 6 of 11 Winners, 4 Perfect, 415 Points   |   Tied for 1948th

If Adesanya performs like he did in the Romero fight -----He's looking to get his ass handed to him - Costa is no joke and after all the "trash talk" Costa is fired up to show Adesanya what it feels like to LOSE - On the other hand if Adesanya gets his head out of his ass and fights it could go the other way - I'm banking that Costa will prevail and will give Adesanya the fight of his career - Adesanya "Prove me wrong"

New LHW CHAMP ---- Dominick Reyes 2020

Predictions: 6 of 11 Winners, 4 Perfect, 415 Points   |   Tied for 1948th

Reyes has his eyes on the prize and should not be underestimated in his determination to be the LHW champ - After losing to Jones (really didn't lose) by bad scoring on the judges part, Reyes has been determined to get back in the cage (wanted Jones, who left the LHW to avoid getting back in the cage with Reyes) to claim what he has been working so hard to get - This fight will not go the distance now that Reyes know what it is to put the decision in the hands of the judges - Dominick Reyes will be the LHW CHAMP next Saturday night -

Sanchez vs. Matthews
Jake Matthews, DEC
I really think Matthews probably gets the finish. How? Not sure. Official pick will be by dec. Just because I have no idea what crazy thing Sanchez will do that will lead to his demise in this fight. But Matthews wins.

Jake Matthews as a -700 favorite. Is a pretty good sign that Diego needs to hang em up

+675 parlay for Jan and Paulo seems like huge value. I think the Jan fight is a lot closer than the odds suggest (210 now) and the costa fight is fairly close to a coin flip with the added bonus of being +150 at the moment.

210 is pretty ridiculous for someone on the streak and possessing the power of Jan

I was really hoping to see Khamzat go past the first round and grapple with GM3......i just really wanted more info on how this is going to go against Maia.....guess he ruined that in impressive fashion tho. Going to be huge odds on Maia though......tough to make that bet now though.

It's safe to say it's highly dangerous to let a man like Diego Sanchez fight.

GM3 talked all that **** all week about showing him resistance. Yet when the bell rang he **** down his leg and backed himself to the cage faster than Tyron does. GM3 is a CAN

Meerschaert sharted himself, and unlike Yoel here he is isn't a beast that can power through it.

Chimaev never hit him lol the fight was stopped due to him ****ting himself.

I can't find any footage nor images of him ****ting himself. He **** the bed figuratively but that's about it.
