Figueiredo vs. Moreno
Deiveson Figueiredo, TKO, R2
Maybe a round 1 TKO for the champ but I think he will be careful and test the distance in the first one so.. second one it is!

Ferguson vs. Oliveira
Tony Ferguson, TKO, R3
Really hard fight to pick. I think it can go either way but my heart says TONY'S TIME *******!

Figueiredo vs. Moreno
Deiveson Figueiredo, TKO, R3
It's really hard to picture anyone stopping this dudes winning streak right now. His power is next level, he looks to have his weight cuts perfected and his grappling has gotten much better. Its gonna be a long time before anyone dethrones Figueiredo.

Ferguson vs. Oliveira
Tony Ferguson, TKO, R3
I hate this matchup for Charles. The difference in heart and toughness between these two is too big. Tony can roll with Charles but there is no way in hell Charles can trade punches with El Cucuy. I have Ferguson by 3rd round KO. Oliveira has never absorbed more than 48 significant strikes and won in all his UFC fights. Every fight with Ferguson becomes a war and Charles performs terribly in wars.

Dern vs. Jandiroba
Virna Jandiroba, DEC
Cant wait to watch these two grapple. My fear is that since they are both so proficient on the ground that it might wind up being a boxing match that nobody wants to see. I hope they grapple and if they do I think Jandiroba has the better wrestling and can get this fight to the ground if she wants to and her best chance while there is to favor position over submission and avoid Derns submission attempts. I could see her winning a decision if she pulls that off.

Holland vs. Souza
Ronaldo Souza, SUB, R1
Classic striker vs grappler. Will Holland do his best to avoid going to the ground with Jacare? I hope so but I seriously doubt it. Jacare knows he needs to get this to the ground if he wants to win. No way he can strike with Holland, the size and reach advantages Holland has will be too much for him. My lean is Holland blows it and lets it go to the ground and he gets subbed but if Jacare cant get it there Holland pieces him up. I'm fading Hollands fight IQ and picking Jacare by submission.

dos Santos vs. Gane
Ciryl Gane, TKO, R1
It looks like JDS chin is gone, too many wars against killers. It's Gane's time now.

Swanson vs. Pineda
Daniel Pineda, TKO, R2
Cub has lost 4 out of his last 5 and is coming off a long layoff and a torn ACL. So hard to pick Cub here even though he has fought the tougher competition. Pineda is on fire right now. This fight should be action packed. Pineda will get it done inside the distance, like he always does.

Moicano vs. Fiziev
Renato Moicano, DEC
I think this is too big of a step up for Fisiev. This fight is so hard to call but if it winds up on the ground Moicano will drown him. Fisiev has top notch TD defense (100% in the UFC) and fantastic striking. Moicano has great striking himself and world class jiu jitsu. I'm going with Moicano because of the far more impressive resume, size advantage and grappling advantage. Gonna be a great fight!

Quarantillo vs. Tucker
Billy Quarantillo, DEC
Fired up for this one! Two really fun fighters to watch here. Quarantillos pressure, conditioning and wresting always seem to make the difference in his fights and I see it being no different here. Quarantillo is a rising star and I think he rolls tonight.

Torres vs. Hughes
Tecia Torres, DEC
Torres by lay and pray and against the fence clinch control. Yawn.

Hooper vs. Barrett
Peter Barrett, DEC
I could see Barrett coming back to win in the 3rd if Hooper gasses. Slippery Pete has a way of surviving submission attempts that seem to be locked in. The line is way too wide here IMO but I wouldnt bet this fight. I'll pick the dog here as a fade on Hoopers conditioning and experience with very low confidence.

@ngagnu Just saying in hindsight, people look stupid in MMA about half the time in MMA. Why critique when you don’t pick yourself or bring anything of value to the tapology community beside *****ing . I just want to have fun picking, picking the same as everyone is boring, and I leave this site in a week if I had to. I pick Figgy btw something you didn’t do

@ngannoupunch

I'm not saying Figueredo is bad, he is a legit champion i'm just saying he may not be the terrible monster some people (like you) think he is. To me, it seems like a technical guy with a good chin who can avoie early storm (like Askarov) could outpoint him in a 5 round fight. I do think he stay champion as long as he face kill or be kill type of guy like Moreno or Gabranth.

Figueiredo vs. Moreno
Deiveson Figueiredo, SUB, R2
Totally one sided, Moreno seems soft af.

Ferguson vs. Oliveira
Tony Ferguson, TKO, R3
My heart say Oliveria but my balls say Tony. It could potentially be the second time this year he looses to a guy with his own last name on his back? Tony seems really motivated here tho and he is legendary so round 3 tko is my guess.

Dern vs. Jandiroba
Mackenzie Dern, SUB, R1
Meh.

Holland vs. Souza
Kevin Holland, DEC
Pickem, avoid if you could.

dos Santos vs. Gane
Ciryl Gane, TKO, R1
If there is going to be a 1 round tko its going to be here, Frenchie is a monster.

Swanson vs. Pineda
Daniel Pineda, DEC
Also an exciting one considering these guys are so similar. Could be a pickem if it wasnt for Cubs wear and tear.

Moicano vs. Fiziev
Rafael Fiziev, TKO, R2
Potential fight of the night

Quarantillo vs. Tucker
Billy Quarantillo, DEC
Billy Q doesnt lose to Canadians

Torres vs. Hughes
Tecia Torres, DEC
Boring but always a W for someone fighting unranked and short notice

Hooper vs. Barrett
Peter Barrett, DEC

I did pick him....It was right under the post I quoted you from on the other thread.

You can have fun making picks man I'm just saying you are constantly eating your words after saying people arent good or are over rated. Take a little more time to examine the matchups before you go popping off at the mouth.

I'll leave you alone now.

Figueiredo vs. Moreno
Deiveson Figueiredo, SUB, R2
Again, Figgy's got a guy who's good everywhere, but has no really specialty. I think Figgy get's him outta there quick. Moreno should've maybe waited a bit before this.

Holland vs. Souza
Ronaldo Souza, DEC
Sooouuuza. But to be fair, I dunno if 41 year old alligator can do it. But prime Jacare rips Holland apart. I think here is where he can finally see Holland bite way more than he can chew. Yup.

dos Santos vs. Gane
Ciryl Gane, DEC
Gane. I know, I know, JDS might be busted........ But I think Gane's gonna let him move a bit before he takes over.

Swanson vs. Pineda
Daniel Pineda, SUB, R2
Pineda. Swanson is walking into a beating. Pineda wants food on his plate, and I think he knows where to get it.

Moicano vs. Fiziev
Renato Moicano, DEC
Mmmmmm. Moicano. Just simply based off more volume, and I think he's a little more crafty in there. Fiziev is fun, but I don't feel like he can give a good go. Ah Well.

Quarantillo vs. Tucker
Billy Quarantillo, DEC
Biiiiiileeeeh! Although this is another great test for him. Tucker is sick also.
