Mmm. I like Rivera here. Thing is, I don't know his compete gameplan. Is he just a striker?

Lewis vs. Oleinik
Derrick Lewis, TKO, R2
You won't hear me say it, pretty much never, But at 43 ******* years old, Alexei Oleinik is looking the best he's ever looked, In my opinion. If that doesn't sound ridiculous enough, Imagine being in peak performance, going into your 64th pro fight. That sounds so ******* absurd. But he's not just performing well, but he's probably in the best shape of his career too. So everything he's shown me just over the last 2 fights, is making this a really difficult fight for me to pick. Before these last 2 Oleinik wins, I woulda been all over Derrick Lewis without any hesitation.... Just not that confident in that pick anymore. And would not be surprised to see Oleinik take a shellacking for 4.9 rounds, only to get himself another Ezekiel Choke or some unusual ****.

Weidman vs. Akhmedov
Omari Akhmedov, DEC
Another Brain vs. Gut pick for me. Let's be honest here. I think Weidman's glory days are definitely over. I see no chance for another title shot really ever, and if that's not an option for Weidman, it makes me wonder how much he really cares about winning fights or is it just about a paycheck. He's shown really no improvement to me, he's still the same fighter he was when he beat Anderson Silva. The problem is, is that everyone got better and he didn't. And the results show. So really, it's not crazy for me to think Akhmedov can control this fight for 15 mins. That's what my brain tells me. And then my gut chirps in it's opinion. Weidman couldn't have fallen off this badd right? He's just had really tough fights where he was just not the better man that night....... For nearly the last 4 years. I think I'll side with my brains. Sounds more logical.

Stewart vs. Pitolo
Darren Stewart, TKO, R2
What is it that the UFC loves so much about Maki Pitolo? Good chance of someone going to sleep in this one. I think Darren Stewart should be able to control the pace of this fight, and if he can, I'd like to see him look for the finish. He's always done his best work, when he's been able to fight at his pace. That's gotta be key #1, and then he can let those big bombs go.

Kunitskaya vs. Stoliarenko
Yana Kunitskaya, DEC
Kinda head scratcher of a matchup, whatever.

Means vs. Staropoli
Laureano Staropoli, DEC
This is the scrap I've been drooling over. I f'n love this matchup. FOTN here.

Haqparast vs. Munoz
Nasrat Haqparast, TKO, R2
Nasrat Haqparast. This kid is easily on mine, and should be on your favorite list. And there should be no argument or debate about it. Very fan friendly fighter. And then you remember, He's ONLY turning 25 in 2 weeks. That's a scary thought if you ask me. And Lightweights and probably Welterweights need to watch for this kid. If he keeps the same trajectory, future contender is a sure bet. Maybe I'm just biased, but I see good things for this kid's future.

Lewis vs. Oleinik
Derrick Lewis, TKO, R2
I have to side with Lewis in this fight. He looks like he means business leading up to this fight. He looks in better shape and with it being in the small cage I think he will find Oleinik's chin before getting gassed and choked out. There is no more crafty vet in the game then Oleinik he is a threat. I just see Lewis landing the shot in time before this gets too far where all that craftiness pays off. I have Lewis in the 2nd by tko.

Zalal vs. Barrett
Youssef Zalal, TKO, R3
Yeah...... Zalal is just better everywhere. Also, Peter seems to fade hard around round three so let's see how this goes.

I think the best thing for Weidman is for Omeri to beat him in a dominient but not in a  way that will give him more CTE because Weidman is delusnal and thinking he still can become champ, If he wins he fight another monster and get knockout brutily. Weidman is gonna be braindead when he 40 if he kept fighting because 3 proper KOs and the Luke Rockhold beating is bad for your brain and even Liddel took less damange at the end of his carrer. Someone in Weidman life should tell that man to retire if you love him and not looking for that money

I’m rolling with Lewis cause I respect a man who’s balls are hot and isn’t afraid to handle that in front of the crowd. I’m rooting for another interview for the big man. That’s my breakdown. Fan of both dudes actually.

I have completely lost my mind. Heat wave where I'm at has fried my brain beyond recovery or even comprehension. I actually expect to get possibly all these picks wrong. Pro tip: Pick the exact opposite of my picks to make top of the leaderboard.
