@nygannu Have u seen any other Figurado fight beside The Benevidez fights, He look increbley average in a lot of them, Especally in the Formiga fight and the Jarred Brooks fight in his debut. And Btw U can say the same thing about Figurado because they both fought Benavedez and Formiga , dominant one  and got embaress by the other one  , Fought alot of meh fighter, Only diffrence is that Figurado also beat Pantoja.

If you want a technicle breakdown, I think the Calf kick and the wresling will give Figurado problems, Watch the Formiga and Jarred Brooks for the wresling weakness, Perez is a great wresler and I think he gonna win with the wresling, Also Figurado kept his stance long so I think Perez is gonna destroy his calf with those kick, It is great value because Figurado is a really hot and cold fight and +230 and people don't know who Perez is.

P.s Also It not disreacted to say a fighter could win a fight because 90% of fight are close to coin flips and that why I love MMA, And I said Izzy, Blahovics and Khabib are gonna **** up Costa ,Reyes and Gaeche and everyone called me retarted and disresctful to other fighter. I guess I can Never win lol

Predictions: 7 of 12 Winners, 3 Perfect, 440 Points   |   Tied for 1036th

Figueiredo vs. Perez
Deiveson Figueiredo, TKO, R2
Ohhhh boy. I really want to bet on Perez. Like I reallllly want to bet on Perez. Because I see these little moments in Figueiredo's fights where he looks very vulnerable. But he has this weird almost animalistic instinct that helps him survive those mistakes. I've seen some of the most unconventional yet effective get ups, TD defense, and footwork for Deiveson. Only person I would be confident could beat him is MM. THAT SAID, Perez is a live dog past 15 minutes especially if the weight cut looks particularly bad for Figueiredo. But do I really believe any Flyweight out there can make it to the 4th round against Figgy? Hahahaha... no.

Shevchenko vs. Maia
Valentina Shevchenko, TKO, R4
HAHAHAHAHAHA. Valentina Shevchenko vs Nunes 2 after she beats Andrade and Calvillo. Valentina won those fights and I'll go to my grave on that.

Rua vs. Craig II
Maurício Rua, TKO, R1
I keep forgetting that Rua isn't even that old. Paul Craig is a very weird fighter, he's like Hermannson if Hermansson sucked. Weird striking, and awkwardly infeffective takedowns. I think Rua capitalizes in round one learning after the experiences from the first fight.

Chookagian vs. Calvillo
Cynthia Calvillo, SUB, R2
Calvillo is up next after Andrade for the title shot. Chook is cashing checks before she retires in my opinion. She faced the wall to the title and lost hope that she could make it.

Perry vs. Means
Tim Means, DEC
I love Tim Means, and despite what people think he actually has a decent chance here. It's realistically Perry's fight to lose and I understand that. I just really like Tim Means.

Shevchenko vs. Lipski
Ariane Lipski, DEC
This episode of spastic MMA math features the worst fight on the card: You have grappler vs striker in essence with this fight. Now, finishing power for both in their respective areas of expertise? Shevchenko has like a 2% chance whereas Lipski has like a 30% chance of getting a sub. Now who is better at surviving the others best weapon? Lipski isn't a good striker, but she's not like AWFUL. Shevchenko however, is an AWFUL grappler. It's WMMA so there's no harm in picking a dog so if you wanna pick Shevchenko I'm not mad.

Jouban vs. Gooden
Alan Jouban, DEC
Come on now. Who does Jouban know in the UFC to get such an idealistic matchup as this? He looks like he'd be Sean Shelby's type. Worst male fight on the card.

Daukaus vs. Stoltzfus
Kyle Daukaus, TKO, R2
Man. This is a hard ******* fight to pick. I get why the populous wants to take Daukaus because of the grit he showed in the Allen fight on his debut. He's an amazing grappler and not a terrible striker to boot. Now, how about Stoltzfus? Pretty much the same thing. I mean they have both looked equally impressive in my eyes, it's just that Daukaus has had a stronger strength of schedule. But man, Stoltzfus may just be a future champ undercover. It's not always his fault that he hasn't had the toughest fights in the world, maybe people are regularly ducking him. Size and experience goes to Daukaus so I won't go with my urge to select the underdog.

Moreno vs. Royval
Brandon Moreno, DEC
What a cool fight. No bet and I'm picking basically by flipping a coin. These guys are closely matched, but I think the tough fights Moreno has had early in his career have made him the wiser fighter of the two.

Buckley vs. Wright
Joaquin Buckley, TKO, R1
I'm riding the hype. Two punchers in this matchup and I know for a fact that Buckley has a hell of a chin. I think he puts enough damage on Wright to get him out of there early.

Cosce vs. Palatnikov
Louis Cosce, TKO, R1
Hahahaha. What a matchup? They must like Cosce after that absolute upset in his contender fight. Hell, he lost me money and I was enjoying it. Louis cracks. Seems like all these Welterweight boys are suddenly hitting harder than the MW and LH.

Dalby vs. Rodriguez
Daniel Rodriguez, TKO, R2
Oh boy. Dalby is tough at least? Take your pick leg kicks or chin check. D-Rod is a lock, I think Dalby makes it into round 2 though because Rodriguez is a very cerebral finisher.

Shevchenko vs. Lipski
Ariane Lipski, SUB, R2
Ariane Lipski's got the better ground game as far as I'm concerned so I recon that she'll find a way of submitting Antonia Shevchenko. Is it weird that this is the fight I'm most looking forward to on the card? This could be the surprise FOTN as far as I'm concerned.

Daukaus vs. Stoltzfus
Dustin Stoltzfus, DEC
This is seems like a nice competitive match up on paper at least.

So they sell Jordan Wright as an undefeated fighter even if he get murdered in the cage because Hernandez smoke? That seems stupid to me..

@TWJake and wath if Chookagian goes herself for the takedown and put Calvillo on her back for 3 rounds like she did with Antonina

Antonina is nowhere near the grappler that Calvillo is, ill be surprised if she doesn't outwrestle Chookagian if not completely outgrapple her

It's lipski vs big sis shevchenko. Spoiler alert lipski ain't wrestling she's gonna strike as she usually does and will get picked apart by shevchenko. This fight seems Taylor made for shev.

This feels like a Buckley trap fight. Riding this viral fame against a polished undefeated prospect who will have height and reach advantages.

Mike Perry is a really good fighter for 30 seconds each round. A weird rangey striker like Means can steal the rounds and get a decision. 

And we know Royval is always live. This is gonna be a tough gambling card.

Mike Perry's goofy ass is entertaining! Daukas and Buckley are in interesting fights. And then theres the Rua-Craig trainwreck which'll be weird/fun to see. It's a decent card, not PPV worthy

@seth Only fight I think that are bad on the card is Shogun vs Craig and I’m indefrent to Both shevshinko sister fight and Calvilo vs Chook. Only problem is that is make 3/5 of your $60 and most of the rest of the fight are Dope fights

Surprised everyone is so high on Buckley after that kick. He's not all that great outside of that one highlight. Jordan Wright is a professional can crusher. I still think he gets it done here. y'all should watch James Krause interview about how Buckley is as a person or training partner.

Yeah, Buckley is basically a trash person. So are a lot of good fighters unfortunately. Buckley can box really well in addition to taking a punch. Unfortunately my feelings don't really matter too much in the outcome of a fight otherwise Joey B would've retired champion and ridden Olivi home while Figgy would be riding an Ox in his favella not defending a title. I guess I picked Means for that reason, but I'm expecting to get burned there.
