Nurmagomedov vs. Gaethje
Justin Gaethje, DEC
Gaethje by Decision. With his punching power, he will dominate.

Whittaker vs. Cannonier
Robert Whittaker, DEC
Whittaker Decision. Cannonier is a good fighter, beat Anderson Sliva but Whittaker is an OP Middleweight. Romero, Till, no one is safe.

Volkov vs. Harris
Walt Harris, TKO, R2
Harris by Round 2 KO. Harris punches hard in his fights, Harder than Volkov. Also, if Volkov can’t beat Blaydes, he can’t beat Harris.

@tepid don't get me wrong I'm picking khabib to smash him too but I'd say gaethje has the best chance to counter khabibs wrestling so far of anyone khabib has faced. I never seen gaethje wrestle but supposedly he's really good. I'll say if gaethje can keep it standing he wins but I don't see that happening.

i just dont see a D1 wrestler as being on the same level as a combat sambo fighter thats been doing it since he was big enough to walk. justin will prolly defend some take downs, but how many? how many can khabib chain together? how good is justins defense from the clinch along the cage? everyone thats fought khabib has said the same thing, he feels like a heavy weight when hes on top of you. justin might win a round or maybe 2 but khabib wins by late sub, round 4 or 5, just like always.

I think khabib will smesh him. But maybe khabib will bleed little bit the first time.
Khabib Unanimous Decision or TKO via ground and pound or a Submission for Khabib, I can imagine all of these outcomes. But I can’t see Justin TKO/KO Khabib. I like both but that’s my prediction

I remember thinking Alvey might make a decent upper level gatekeeper at 185.... doesn't seem to be the case

Holy **** now this is a card

Volkov - Harris = fireworks 

Whittaker - Cannonier = fireworks

RDA - Islam = ok this is getting ridiculous

KHABIB VS. GAETHJE?!

Let's just pray, pray to the Just Bleed God that this card stays together.

Poirer fight ain't gonna happen.
Oliveira vs Ferguson would be amazing but I don't think Oliveira has earned it yet.
Ferg deserves an immediate title shot against the winner of khabib Gaethje in my humble opinion.

Tony might fight Michael Chandler here, according to the ESPN notification I just got. That would be madness
