@Free, damn lol. I was pissed Fili gave the fight away too, he should have used all that explosiveness BEFORE it got to the ground. I lost a big bet on him, but I made better money on the Moises win and went perfect on all my other bets since Silva didn't get above +300. You should never follow my picks though, because I don't want that kind of pressure haha. @Fish is handing out free money in stock tips though.

Edit: @Hyrm, just saw your comment. You're right but I didn't really think to factor that in since Jones couldn't take him down I'm kind of counting Texeira out, but if he can grind him to the ground Santos can definitely be subbed.

. What do you think of bets on Brahimaj(+135) and  De Lima(+218), Haven't done any  research on the card yet ,but I think they the dog that bonce out on me. I don't know anything about Brahimaj ,but  Max griffan loss alot and if Brahmaj is any good I think he could win. 


 Romenov is high on my fade list because I hate it when the big boy ground and pound 100+ punchs and the guy is not dead. Anyone weighing 120kg shouldn't hit like a ***** like that. I think He could win this win but I just like betting agaist people high on my fade list but his odds maybe aren't high enough to do it maybe.


And on a side note, The Iron Turtle who just fought John Philips is  number one on my fade list, That guy landed 300+ punch and he weighs 90kg and he didn't only made him look unrecognisble, He didn't even cut him, John Philips did more damage with his 2 punch he landed, I hate that,

Odd's are okay to take Brahimaj as a dog, but I don't think I'll risk my money on it. I'll probably post my actual bets when I make them after the contender series. As for Romanov, I won't fade any heavyweight with good TDs and cardio. But even if he did make you fade column for his horrible fight IQ and G&P (which I totally agree with Duck) I wouldn't fade any wrestler with decent sub awareness against DeLima, just look at his TD defense against absolute **** tier talent.

@Tieoken I only hand out investment stock tips. I do CFD's/options as well but there's no way I'd ever publish my positions on Tap.  I'm diversified and can mitigate losses, others won't be, and I don't want to be the guy responsible for causing somebody to lose the bindle literally gambling on the stock market. There's some good ETF's I might talk about soon.

@Tieoken

For what it's worth, I had you winning 20-18 at by the time the ref stopped it though that 2nd round was close! Your ground game is very impressive, particularly your defense against submissions as Josh Krejci attempted several different submission attempts that you were able to break out of easily! 5-5 isn't a bad record and 3 of your losses have been decisions, so it's not as if you're some bum who keeps getting KO'd in the 1st. My record is 0-0 as I'm just a casual armchair fan lol!

with adesanya fighting blachowicz, this main event feels kind of pointless. as well as whittaker vs. cannonier. what's the point of having top contenders fight if the champs are just going to fight each other

@Damien @Stephen, I really appreciate the positivity guys. It’s definitely an easy sport to get down on yourself over. But at the end of the day I know I’m just a hobbyist and if y’all enjoyed any of my fights at all that’s cool as ****.

I love MMA but I'm too much of a ***** to actually get in the cage so regardless of how good or bad they are, I have MASSIVE respect for any fighter who's willing to put themselves at risk of harm for our entertainment!

@tieoken I get what u mean, I'm a blue belt in Jiu Jitsu and do a little bit of Muay Thai, I tapped out to a girl when i Started doing it, I was going light on her, but still. I Might do a bit more Muay Thai so I can do some ammuture fighting because I'm not afraid to get hurt as I pass out in a few chokes over the years. I don't think that good for the brain tho. I get what you mean when it an hard, But rewording sport

Prediction Comments

Predictions: 5 of 10 Winners, 2 Perfect, 355 Points   |   Tied for 1966th

Santos vs. Teixeira
Thiago Santos, DEC
I think Santos has the striking variety advantage here, and neither one of these guys are really ground game guys. Santos will be able to control distance with his amazing kick variety and Teixeira will not be able to get into boxing range that he needs to pump out his combos.

Arlovski vs. Boser
Tanner Boser, TKO, R2
Arlovski just can't keep up with the movement, striking speed/power and volume of Boser. Boser moves like a middleweight at heavyweight. Neither one of these guys will gas out, but I see Boser shattering Arlovski's already-damaged chin in 2-3.

Barcelos vs. Taha
Khalid Taha, TKO, R2
Everybody is stacking up on Barcelos here and forgetting a few things: Barcelos came in with 10 days notice, and Taha had a whole camp to train against Jack Shore, who's a submission artist. If he was prepared for grappling from Shore he will certainly be prepared for the grappling from Taha, who is more of a reactive wrestler than a proactive one.

Heinisch vs. Allen
Ian Heinisch, DEC
Allen has a strong submission game, but his striking, takedowns, and movement in general are slow motion compared to Heinisch. If he somehow manages to make it past Heinisch's formidable takedown defense then he will submit Heinisch. Heinisch decision or Allen by sub.

Gadelha vs. Yan
Xiaonan Yan, DEC
Gadelha just doesn't have the striking prowess on the feet or the ability to take Xaionan to the mat. Yan will control distance with her insane variety of kicks and stay out of Gadelha's boxing range, and use her formidable judo to ragdoll any takedown attempts.

Chikadze vs. Simmons
Giga Chikadze, TKO, R1
The matchmaking on this is really screwed up. Jamey Simmons will throw a wild punch as he always does, and Chikadze will counter and knock him out early.

Giles vs. Lewis
Trevin Giles, DEC
Close fight. Lewis is more of a clinch fighter while Giles goes after it a bit more with the combos and slightly sharper striking.

Rogério de Lima vs. Romanov
Alexander Romanov, SUB, R2
Romanov is just a madman, plain and simple. Dive-rolls, splits, insane acrobatics that a heavyweight should not be able to do. And a pace that rivals a Bantamweight. Both of these guys have knockout power, but Romanov also has an amazing explosive grappling game. There's zero chance that this goes to decision.

Elkins vs. Garagorri
Eduardo Garagorri, DEC
Elkins has cardio issues and is super wild with his striking in a way that leaves him exposed. Garagorri, on the other hand, is a striking phenom and has demonstrated ability to stuff takedowns, which Elkins will require to win. Garagorri has KO power for sure, but Elkins is insanely durable, so this one may go to the cards.

Griffin vs. Brahimaj
Ramiz Brahimaj, SUB, R2
Odds are stacked here because it's Brahimaj's UFC debut, but he demolishes Griffin in pretty much every area. Griffin's standing game is pretty much limited to single leaned-forward jabs that serve as takedown feints to desensitize his opponents and then he dives in with a real takedown and does the rest on the mat. Brahimaj should be able to stuff this easily and capitalize on the openings Griffin leaves on the feet with his jab.

Considering that betwen 1% & 3% of person who subscribe to a MMA Gym ends up doing a cage fight, Tieoken, 5-5 in MMA is good. It would probably not be enought to live of that but it mean you're a better fighter then a lot of people.
As for me, i'm 22 jiu-jitsu fight with a record of something like 11-9-2 and 1 MMA fight that have not gone well.

I agree with you, Santos destroy Blachowich just 2 fight ago. I think they want Adesanya to win the belt because he will never be able to when he will have to face Santos or Prochazka to win it.

Thiago Santos   vs.   Glover Teixeira
Texiera, KO/TKO.

I want to believe, people. It's really that simple. My wife's boyrfriend has already helped me into fresh pair of pullups, and the bus driver has been notified that a special ramp and harness will be required for the trip to the stadium. 

Ian Heinisch   vs.   Brendan Allen 
Allen, Sub lateish R2-3.


Heinisch is a bit like Mcdonald's fries an hour before closing; either great or abysmal. I think Allen, unlike merely-sharts, is good enough to avoid eating a big one and get sparked early--and even if he does eat the kitchen sink he's probably survivable enough to recover. That's a problem for Heinisch because although his wrestling is good his conditioning isn't and he's inclined to burn himself out granby rolling and getting TD's he does nothing with anyway. Allen isn't easy to pin down, and his TDD is very solid. Heinisch probably gasses mid way R2, it ends up on the mat, he gets reversed and gets pounded to a stoppage from the top, or choked.


Raoni Barcelos   vs.   Khalid Taha 
Barcelos, sub R2.

I'll not be picking a guy who lost to Nad Naramini two years ago, thanks. Not against Roni Barcelos. Khalid really has a very slim possibility of winning by dec here, and if he does win, he's going to win by KKO/TKO. Barcelos has never lost to strikes. In fact he's also never lost by decision, and has only lost by sub. Once. Which is his only loss. And he's fought bigger punchers than Taha.
