Don't see many scenarios where Lewis gets it done, I think that Blaydes has one of the best chins in the UFC. Ate bombs from Francis and Hunt, that knee that overeem landed wouldve knocked out a rhino

If Curtis wins then I don't see how they don't do a 3rd fight with Francis. 

Even though Francis has KO'd Curtis twice, they're clearly the 2 best fights at HW. Curtis is alot younger as well and seems to be improving at a more significant rate than Francis.

Derrick Lewis, TKO, R1
Blaydes should really be able to dominate Lewis on the ground, but I can't trust his chin here. Every fight starts on the feet, and I think Lewis will just swing like a hot balls beast until Blaydes is out cold.

Blaydes is a dark horse in the division, absolutely brutalized a STRONG Overeem on the ground which I believe was his best performance because he used his GNP. Stopping JDS at this point doesn't mean much, as much as it hurts to say JDS should retire. 

He has the strongest chin at HW right now, but the scary thing about Francis is he has a very strong chin as well. Derrick Lewis is fun to watch, but the guy is simply a brawler and nothing more. He may have the most knockouts at heavyweight but look who he beat to get that record.

If DC could handle Lewis that way, and he really embarrassed Lewis in that fight and showed his total lack of awareness on the ground. He uses brute strength to get himself out of situations by his glaring weaknesses are an iffy chin, nothing in his arsenal other than power.

If Blaydes loses this, I'll be extremely surprised. He only has a punchers chance, and Blaydes will flop him around. Possible RNC if he follows DC's gameplan which would be wise because it's not like Derrick evolves. He will always be the same fighter, a brawler who if you aren't careful can put your lights out.

I can't really get on board with Blaydes after his last couple. I think he's peaked and will never be champ TBH.

I think People betting Blaydes should be hopping for a Tko finish in the first 2-3 Rounds, I think if he gas again ,Derrick Lewis will knock him out, Derrick Lewis is a hard guy to finish on the ground and DC is the only guy to do it,, There probley value on the best underdog in UFC history because it’s a close fight but I lean Blaydes

Woodson Vs Pearce

Predictions: 4 of 6 Winners, 1 Perfect, 240 Points   |   Tied for 1801st

Woodson RD 1 KO - Sean Woodson has dominated every fight he’s been in, with the UFC and on the regional scene. He lost his last fight but it was at a catch weight and he went from fighting Kyle Nelson to a bjj guy in Erosa on 3 days notice. Pearce can keep a high pace and is well rounded. But if Bochniak had a hard time taking him down so will Pearce. I see Woodson picking him apart on the feet and getting a finish early. Both of his head coaches are top notch. Both BJJ black belts. Wouldn’t even be surprised if we saw him pick up his first submission win in the UFC. Bright future if he wins this one impressively. Would like to see him vs Landwehr or Caceres.

Moicano vs. Fiziev
Rafael Fiziev, DEC
Great fight. Fiziev looked amazing against Diakase last time. Moicano will probably give him a good test tho, and the winner should enter the top 15, or at the very least fight someone in the top 15 after this.

Smith vs. Clark
Anthony Smith, DEC
At this point, I'm not even sure Anthony Smith can win against someone like Clark. He took some INSANE damage recently (Teixeira destroyed his teeth and nearly ended his career, Thiago Santos brutalized him), even in some fights he won (Volkan Oezdemir rocked him multiple times, as well as Lombard)... I'm still going with him for a close win because he knows how to fight smart, but I think he really should retire before risking his health even more. He has nothing to gain, and certainly won't be a contender again with key losses to Jones, Teixeira, Thiago Santos, and Rakic. After all, he can be proud of his career, he fought for the title against the GOAT, has great wins over Gustafsson, Rua, Evans, Lombard, Volkan, and gave us plenty of fun fights (the Thiago Santos, Teixeira and Volkan fights were entertaining wars). Rooting for him.

Maybe, I wouldn't be surprised. But this is a close matchup IMO and to get +180 on Takashi Sato against a green fighter with only 9 fights whose only notable win is an aged out Matt Brown is a steal.
