Prediction Comments

Predictions: 7 of 12 Winners, 2 Perfect, 440 Points   |   Tied for 1036th

Figueiredo vs. Perez
Deiveson Figueiredo, SUB, R3
And still. I just dont think Perez is ready for this huge step up in competition yet.

Shevchenko vs. Maia
Valentina Shevchenko, TKO, R5
Not much to say here. So hard to find a path to victory for Maia but I know she's tough and going to be hard to finish. Shevchenko should cruise here.

Perry vs. Means
Mike Perry, TKO, R3
Perry didnt even try to make weight. He's got a serious screw loose but I think he's stronger, more powerful and a better grappler due to his strength than Means. Means had to use his grappling to get past Staropoli in his last fight but he wont be able to lean on that tonight. I think that gives Perry the edge everywhere except for mental stability. This is going to be the FOTN

Chookagian vs. Calvillo
Cynthia Calvillo, DEC
Chookagians TD defense isnt going to hold up and because of that Calvillo has a clear path to victory here.

Rua vs. Craig II
Paul Craig, DEC
Time for Shogun to hang em up. Too much tread on the tires. Craig won the last one IMO and I think he will win this one more convincingly but Rua is still too determined and tough to be finished by Craig.

Moreno vs. Royval
Brandon Moreno, DEC
I think it's Morenos time. The way he toyed with Formiga on the ground in his last fight was very impressive. He's better everywhere and I dont see Royval finding an answer for the assassin baby's varied attack. Moreno is getting a title shot after this win nieces and nephews.

Buckley vs. Wright
Joaquin Buckley, TKO, R2
Someone is getting KTFO here for sure. FDGTD -500 at the moment. Wright is live for an early knockout with some tae kwon do but if Buckley doesnt get caught early I think he puts it on Wright and gets him outta there with a big hook.

Dalby vs. Rodriguez
Daniel Rodriguez, SUB, R2
Hard to pick Dalby here coming off that last performance against Ronson. D-Rod has a very underrated grappling game and I think hes the tougher, more well rounded fighter here. Plus he has way less miles on him. I think Dalby gasses after the first and D-Rod finishes him.

Jouban vs. Gooden
Alan Jouban, DEC
Hard to pick this one, Gooden much younger and Jouban has the experience edge. I think the experience makes the difference here and Jouban pulls through in a close decision.

Daukaus vs. Stoltzfus
Kyle Daukaus, TKO, R3
Cant wait for this one! Two exciting young fighters with bright futures. I think Daukaus has a slight edge wherever the fight goes but I see his striking making the difference here.

Cosce vs. Palatnikov
Louis Cosce, TKO, R1
Cosce throws with such power I cant see Palatnikov surviving the first. Cosce's wrestling pedigree keeps this fight on the feet and Palatnikov gets KTFO.

Royval is +350 to win by submission. And considering that's been the outcome everytime I've bet against him, why not hedge a little?

Faux New Predictions

Predictions: 8 of 11 Winners, 3 Perfect, 475 Points   |   Tied for 683rd

Shevchenko vs. Maia
I choose Valentina Shevchenko at -1600. She has a homemade leg kick and a judicious harai goshi. Shevchenko will likely kick the opposition.

Rua vs. Craig II
I favor Paul Craig at -180. He has a quintessential five point palm exploding heart technique. Craig should orchestrate the natural order.

Shevchenko vs. Lipski
I tap Antonina Shevchenko at -140. She has a underrated butterfly sweep. Shevchenko isn't about to modulate the masterpiece.

Dalby vs. Rodriguez
I am enamored with Daniel Rodriguez at -320. He has a sassy kneebar and an advanced anaconda. Rodriguez will vaccinate the TV audience. Guaranteed!

Cosce vs. Palatnikov
I have a crush on Louis Cosce at -540. He has a resilient armbar. Cosce shall grind the canvas. Believe in yourself!

Chookagian vs. Calvillo
I am all over Cynthia Calvillo at -245. She has a natural sleeper slam. Calvillo can bury the opposition. Beep boop!

Jouban vs. Gooden
I lean towards Alan Jouban at -150. He has a noble head coach. Jouban will likely drain the cycle.

Daukaus vs. Stoltzfus
I feel disposed to Kyle Daukaus at -320. He has a yummy clavicle crusher. Daukaus might victimize the TV audience.

Figueiredo vs. Perez
I like Deiveson Figueiredo at -280. He has a homemade ankle lock. Figueiredo won't modulate the enemy.

Moreno vs. Royval
I prefer Brandon Moreno at -165. He has a ultimate inverted facelock and a leaden lumberjack sweep. Moreno shall terminate the unthinkable.

Buckley vs. Wright
I can't get enough of Joaquin Buckley at -200. He has a xerophthalmic double leg. Buckley will deny the previous pitfalls.

There seems to be a lot of value in this card especially with many underdogs.  Shogun Rua is legend who can definitely knockout or decision Paul Craig.  Kaitlyn Chookagian and Ariane Lipski can definitely earn a decision because it's women's MMA.  Nothing is guaranteed in women's MMA, we all know this.  

What did last week's fight between Khaos Williams and Abdul Razak Alhassan teach anyone?  Abdul was a flashy knockout artist just like Joaquin Buckley but Khaos starched him.  Nearly everyone on this board and on prediction websites chose Abdul Razak Alhassan by first round tko.   Jordan Wright can do the same thing to Joaquin Buckley.  I remember Joaquin was losing to Impa before Impa caught his leg and Joaquin knocked him out so it's not like Joaquin is someone who consistently dominates people.  

Brandon Royval has a height and reach advantage against a smaller fighter, he might decision or submit Brandon Moreno.   And finally, Mike Perry vs Tim Means... Mike did come overweight but he is still a tough fighter who is very hard to finish.  Tim Means is not some kind of world beater, he can definitely lose by knockout or by split decision to Mike Perry.

I'm a lunatic and put $20 on the following to happen:


$20 to win $100k 

Mauricio Rua inside the distance +380
Mike Perry by decision +425
Jordan Wright inside the distance +300
Katlyn Chookagian by decision +300
Brandon Royval inside the distance +240
Ariane Lipski by decision +250

Let's do this baby!

No portion of time goes by slower than waiting around for a ufc card to start , mostly one im ******* excited for. Legit actively looking for something to do till then so i'm watching some of Fig's early UFC fights on Fight Pass to pass time. Think i might go roast a joint before the first fight starts.
