Reyna vs. Cosce
Victor Reyna, TKO, R3
Easy enough prediction in my opinion. A few unknowns with both of the Cosce brothers, they really have had very groomed careers and we’ve see a lot of these guys fail at the UFC level because they haven’t been sharpening their skills against good opponents. Reyna has a lot of good skills IMO but he can fade a bit in rounds. 70% confidence on Reyna.

Buys vs. Rose
Cheyanne Buys, DEC
Kind of a gimme match against a girl with a decent record. Buys wins, hopefully by tko

Cosce vs. Dixon
Matt Dixon, TKO, R1
I mean, see my comments about his brother. But he’s far more outmatched here than his brother.

Parisian vs. Johnson
Josh Parisian, TKO, R2
Not super confident, but I’ll go with the realistically sized heavyweight.

Syler vs. Cross
Kevin Syler, SUB, R2
Another no confidence pick. Sumer has the skills, but is very undersized here. Cross on the other hand either only looks great against mediocre competitors, but man does he look really great. Syler by sub or Cross by KO.

Now I'm torn, just learned Cosce brothers are from Humboldt County. I'm all about Humboldt County. I'm on their bandwagon now.

I'm stunned by the size difference between Syler and Cross. I don't like basing predictions only on size and muscle but I really don't have a lot of confidence for Syler now

I'm not against it when the smaller mans primary path to victory is grappling. No matter what any of my professors say, size matters when you're trying to drag people down unless you're just leagues more skilled than they are.

Very true @Tieoken . Also makes me wonder about his discipline, he missed weight by a considerable amount on his first appearance and came in the heavier guy this time around. Not by much but all things considered it's still interesting to note

correct, he moved up because he can't make the weight or lacks the discipline, more than likely this is his last shot you can't just lay and pray and impress Dana
