Shevchenko vs. Maia
Valentina Shevchenko, TKO, R3
.......... The women's flyweights is on a massive talent drought right now, and Valentina is the oasis. For Maia to win this, she would need a MMA miracle of some kind. Problem is, Valentina's whole fighting style is built to prevent miracles from happening.... Jesus Christ.

Yeah the boxing anti/mma rant is an old and odd one, even pros in the field still do it.
If you don't wanna watch it don't I see the Tyson/Jones match more cringe than any MMA I've seen.
Closest would be Tito/Chuck 3 and that was put on by a former boxer.

Figueiredo vs. Perez
Deiveson Figueiredo, TKO, R2
Perez is a solid fighter. And he's deserving of a title shot, tho I thought it shoulda went to Moreno, but I get it, we get a fire fight between Moreno & Royval now instead. Cheers to that. However, "Deus da Guerra" is a scary, scary man. Even scarier that he's got the amount of power in those hands, while being in a 5'5" frame. Then you add the Champion Confidence boosting factor in, it's absolutely frightening.

Perry vs. Means
Tim Means, DEC
What's there to say. The "Mike Perry Weight Cutting Manual" should be doused in gasoline and set ablaze. That ************. Pigging out like a fatboy eating Twinkies days before the weigh in, when you're already 25lbs overweight. Then proceeds to say "I came here for a fight, not the scale" ... ******* idiot.

Chookagian vs. Calvillo
Cynthia Calvillo, DEC
Reeeally wanna know how I feel??? If you're unaware of my disgust over Pookagian, lemme tell ya. I hope to god that Calvillo strangles the **** outta this woman, and saves the entire world from 15 mins of "Heeee-yahh"... Oh it's ungodly awful. Ear drum shattering.

Rua vs. Craig II
Paul Craig, DEC
I'll finally side with the Jewish Bear. Sorry Shogun, but I've been calling you a "shot fighter" for a couple years now.

Moreno vs. Royval
Brandon Royval, SUB, R2
I've been drooling just thinking about the wild scrambles that'll come from this....

Buckley vs. Wright
Joaquin Buckley, TKO, R2
Welp, somebody is going nighty-night. Wright is another guy that I'm constantly shooting down. Blame it on the Alaska Bum Fights.

Shevchenko vs. Lipski
Ariane Lipski, DEC
Noooooope. Not falling for this **** again. Just like Dhiego Lima isn't Douglas Lima, Antonina Schevchenko isn't Valentina Schevchenko. Not even ******* close.

Dalby vs. Rodriguez
Daniel Rodriguez, DEC
Little surprised by 12% backing Dalby, but I understand why. I have underestimated Rodriguez 3x in a row. No more of that.

Jouban vs. Gooden
Jared Gooden, TKO, R2
First fight in 19 months for the fast aging Jouban, who's literally knocking down the door on 39 years of age. Add that he's only won 1x in 4 years pretty much against a shopworn Ben Saunders, makes for a bad recipe in my mind against a younger, faster, probably stronger opponent in Gooden.

Daukaus vs. Stoltzfus
Kyle Daukaus, DEC
I think the Amish guy is a live underdog in this one. I'm joking. Idk if he's Amish. Stoltzfus is definitely an Amish carried last name tho. If Stoltzfus can avoid dropping guard left and right for guillotines that aren't there, and giving Daukaus easy takedowns, and subsequent sub attempts, then I do think he's got a shot. This fight shouldn't be buried on the prelims.

Cosce vs. Palatnikov
Louis Cosce, TKO, R1
I think there's a pretty good chance for Cosce to keep his Round 1 KO streak going. Make it 8 for 8. The kid has literally finished 6 of 7 fights, in well under 2 minutes each. That's a crazy stat.

Anyone else think it weird that Chookagain is line +220 vs Calvilo and was +130 vs Andrade, I find eazy money for both of those line because Chookgain  vs Cynthia is the close fight and Andrade vs Chookagain was the obvious mismatch. Just show how stupid alot of MMA gamblers ares or the gambling compony trying to trick me with line value

Figueiredo vs. Perez
Alex Perez, DEC
So......... Look. There's a good chance that Figgy starches Alex when they start brawling. But if Alex and Team Oyama plays the 5 round game smart, he can really cause an upset. I'm willing to bet on that. Figgy's fight against Formiga was really hard to watch.

Odds will be cursed about regularly in this thread that is the only prediction I have confidence in.
Also Fig @75% should be very competitive fights and many upsets due to silly ranking and oddsmaking.

Idk guys, Mike Perry is a dun give a f guy. He doesnt train and he just comes in tkos opponents. Simple as that. Ma man is gonna go for that bonus. I dont think Tim Means can go through 2 3 rounds without getting clipped. Tim Means is finish in round 1 or bust guy. Mike Perry gonna prove himself tonight again. Only if he takes this sht serious he can get much better.

I dunno. Perry fights like he's trying to kill people, but it's been three years since he won within the distance. He throws one or two punches at a time, full power. And guys can generally see it coming.

Perry vs. Means
Tim Means, DEC
I really don't think Perry is in a good place of mind to win a technical fight. That being said, Means's style of fighting is starting to fall apart also. I can play means to

Chookagian vs. Calvillo
Cynthia Calvillo, DEC
I see Calvillo crusing. I think Kaitlyn has other plans after losing to the champ and Andrade. This could be her retirement.

Rua vs. Craig II
Maurício Rua, DEC
Eh..... I'mma pick Rua. Paul is really frustrating to be a fan of.

Moreno vs. Royval
Brandon Royval, DEC
I love this one heere. FOTN contender. But honestly, I'm loving the Raw Dawg. His self belief, and ability to make fights happen could help him here. Is he cruising past the assassin baby? Probably not. Could he be champ? Eh..... But Moreno can be passive at times, and that could definitely cost him here..

Buckley vs. Wright
Joaquin Buckley, TKO, R2
Yikes. So, I'm picking Buckley. Moreso on the fact that he can make a real good account of himself, and the KO is more likely for him to get, other than to receive. Soo yeah. There's footage of Wright already KOed cold too so..... That's not good.

Shevchenko vs. Lipski
Antonina Shevchenko, DEC
I see Antonia crusing......Yeaaah.
