Predictions: 8 of 12 Winners, 3 Perfect, 490 Points   |   Tied for 1301st

Lewis vs. Oleinik
Alexey Oleinik, SUB, R1
Don't look at me like that. I'm not saying that Lewis isn't gonna knock him out, I'm just saying I've seen Lewis fall down in like 70% of his fights in the first round because he swings like a mad man. Now new skinny Lewis, he probably KOs Oleinik like 7 out of 10. But, no way does Lewis survive on the ground if it happens.

Weidman vs. Akhmedov
Omari Akhmedov, TKO, R2
It's really hard to break glass with a pillow. But at this point Weidman's chin is more like chalk, so I'll say Omari gets it down with a shot to takedown and finishing with some G&P.

Stewart vs. Pitolo
Darren Stewart, TKO, R3
I have no idea where the Maki from last fight came from. I know Charles Byrd isn't good, but honestly Maki actually looked decent. That doesn't erase my history with him though, I've seen him sh*t the bed so many times on the regional scene that I have no faith in him. I mean Dakota Cochrane taking him to literal school was hard to watch, granted DC is probably one of the best unsigned welterweights, but still. Darren is a hard hitter and I've watched Pitolo quit and get bulled by bigger guys in the cage a lot, so I'll say he fades until he has enough and gets finished by the real Middleweight in Stewart.

Kunitskaya vs. Stoliarenko
Yana Kunitskaya, DEC
Everyone knows that Jiu Jitsu is deadly in the lighter weight classes, so all of WMMA. But I think Yana's TD defence is better than Julija's TD %, I'll go out on a limb and say a split decision to Yana.

Dariush vs. Holtzman
Beneil Dariush, SUB, R1
Benny boy gonna come through on this one. Power is the last thing to go, but Scott doesn't have the combo's to piece Benny up the way it takes to disrupt and finish him a'la Edson Barboza. Also, Scott is way too willing to visit the ground for a predominant striker, and Benny will capitalize on that. The MMA lab is a way better gym than Kings MMA at the moment, but Kings has been pumping out fighters on these recent cards unlike the Lab. All of this along with a 60% TD defence from Scott makes me see Benny as a lock.

Means vs. Staropoli
Tim Means, DEC
Big Dirty Bird Tim Means win this one via war IMO. He's a crafty vet who is tough unless you have that weird X factor like Niko Price. I just don't see him at the point in his career where he's ready to let these young guys through without a fight. He's got better stats against way better competition. Staropoli got into the UFC fighting 6-5, 1-0, 1-1, 0-1, 1-0. I would also like to take this time for you casuals to inform you that Means isn't 29-12, he's 31-10 and everyone who watched those fights knows it. 30-26 Means, maybe a finish in 2 or 3.

Haqparast vs. Munoz
Alex Munoz, DEC
Have a hard time sleeping? Struggle no more, watch Alex Munoz hold down Nasrat Haqparast for 15 minutes. Cause if you can't keep Marcin Held (40% TD Acc rate) off of your legs then you can't keep Munoz off of you. Hopefully he's really worked on it, cause if he can stuff 2-3 TD then he'll knock Munoz out VICIOUSLY.

Sanchez vs. Turman
Andrew Sanchez, DEC
Here you have two decent strikers with above average wrestling. They both follow the exact same playbook more or less: Strike, if I'm losing striking then go for takedowns and control the mat game. The weird thing is Sanchez has fought the much stronger roster and done pretty well, so I'll trust him to edge this fight out 29-28. Not very confident.

Jaynes vs. Tucker
Justin Jaynes, TKO, R1
Can the mad lad do it again? I'll bet a unit that he can. At 36 and with only a 33% takedown rate against pretty average fighters makes me hopeful that Jaynes can keep his tenure in the UFC fun. Also that absolute mauling by Glenn has embittered Tucker to me.

Zalal vs. Barrett
Youssef Zalal, SUB, R2
Will it be a submission or TKO? Flip a coin. The weird thing is the Pete can actually crack, he's just not that great everywhere else. I think Zalal wins the exchanges in round 1 and starts strong in Round 2, gets cracked by Slippery Pete and decides to close the distance and lands a sub.

Al Qaisi vs. Rivera
Irwin Rivera, DEC
Hi, I'd like to start this by saying that I dislike Giga Chikadze immensely. Nobody has deserved a win more than Irwin Rivera, he brought that fight against a much bigger striker and stood up and went hard as a mother. I'm expecting a fun fight here.

Aleski Olynic defeat Derrick Lewis
This fight is such a unknown fight and might switch to Lewis because he grapling defence is strength and i remberber in his last fight agest Blagoy Ivonov he put him in kimura and Lewis just stood up and it was so funny in my oppion. Derrick Lewis might knock him out but Derrick Lewis ain't Ngagnu the last guy he knock out in the first round was Gonzanga in 2016 and the secound round was Travis Brown in the secound. Olynic is one of the best grappler and I think having 10+ minute to work he get the sub at some point.

Omari Akhmendov def Chris Weidman
Suprise the Oddmaker made this fight correct because i was expected another +200 for Weidman. If that was the case I probley put Weidman as dog as U can't ***** about his loss to Reyes, Jacure, Rockhold, Romero and Gegord. Weidman also win round fighting them before getting KO but  all of the knockout have been brutal, Omeri would loss to the fight Weidman fought but I think Omeri gonna knock him out. Weidman a loser and Omeri a winner and winner usualy win and loser loss so i lean Omeri

I think peopl are wrong about the weidman fight , I believe his chin is gone but I think he gets the win here , Uni decision, akhmedov hasn’t knocked no one out in 7 years. I don’t think it changes Saturday look for weidman to spoil some parlays.

@Corey i am with you, Yea he has suffered some terrible knockouts lately, but they were all from absolute killer competition, and he was winning most of the fights until the lights went out. I think he gets the win Saturday

This is honesly a really good card and one of the better free card in my oppion. It weird that they put the only bad fight with Yana Kunitskya on the Main card . Wikipedia also has Giga vs Caceres and that fight is also awesome and Kassem vs Granger Boo and knowing Sean Shelby fight  ordering that **** co main because WMMA is the most entertaning Sarcasm

Heavyweight chaos. I don't know. Octagone will crumble under those weird legends. Lewis by Ezechiel choke or Oleinik by spinning back fist. Fun fight.

Weidman vs. Akhmedov
Omari Akhmedov, TKO, R2
Weidman can definitely win this and is a favourable matchup for him considering omari is smaller and doesn’t posses much KO power. However, Its very difficult to trust his chin anymore and the amount of damage he has taken over the years. I think Akhmedov is able to keep the fight standing and land a shot to put away a finished weidman. Omari by TKO

Lewis fight/ Oleneik Win

Predictions: 9 of 12 Winners, 4 Perfect, 575 Points   |   Tied for 566th

@Taylor335

Ok bud ..I got to say this.. I agree  here..I agree Oleneik for the win...  that while NEVER being that huge a fan of Lewis to begin with... I'll give him his props..hes suddenly looked like a different fighter his last couple fights... In fact ..someone I could actually get behind if continues...I dont know ..hes changed... hes mixed things in.. Its like hes not afraid of his conditioning now... Oleneik really relys on his personal strength..I dont think even with technique its going to do him so much favor tho against a guy like Lewis... But I do think Olenik if he doesnt get stupid, and keeps this one on the ground can utilize his weight and drag a win out of this one...

Weidmens chin

Predictions: 9 of 12 Winners, 4 Perfect, 575 Points   |   Tied for 566th

@LiamWilo

I guess thats one way of describing Weidmen and his chin... Guys actually been a very inactive fighter comparatively speaking... so " ware on his chin"  as opposed to Chris has a succeptable chin is a debate many could have...Sorry just never bought into Chris and the schtik Dana created behind him...He had a couple great moments no doubt... But Chris has had FAR more bad performances than he ever has good ones IMO.... 

Im just not sure Chris's chin is due to "so much ware" ya know... Been wrong before tho...

That scenario you mention on Lewis and Olenik... That REALLY is what it comes down to isnt it? My thoughts exactly... and if Lewis IF does come out right off can connect... which lets face it.. Olenik isnt hard to hit..LOL

Saw a stat on twitter " Oleinik landed more significant strikes in round 1 against Werdum (54) than Lewis has ever landed in a UFC total"  that threw me off a bit.
