Honesly, It make me more exited for this card because I kept forgeting Yan vs Aljo is on the card, Nunes vs Megan is close to Valintina fight bad IMO. Yan vs Aljo is an intresing matchup and FYI im leaning Aljo Slightly

Nunes drops out. Worst joke of a champ ever.
Wonder how many months she needs to prepare for Megan the turtle anderson?

Yan vs. Sterling
Petr Yan, TKO, R4
Tough fight to predict. No disrespect to Aldo, Faber, Jimmy Rivera and Dodson, they're still decent competition but clearly passed their primes. Sterling is the better fighter of Yan's career, and it will be fascinating to see who emerges victorious.

dos Santos vs. Gane
Ciryl Gane, DEC
Gané is a future contender for sure, but he isn't a KO machine like his training partner Ngannou. I think he will will a confortable decision here.

Swanson vs. Pineda
Cub Swanson, DEC
Disapointing matchup. Swanson is a legend and still a competitive fighter at a high level (after all, he just dominated the very promising Kron Gracie in a fun Fight of the Night, lost a very close fight to Shane Burgos, and was winning against Ortega before the choke. Pineda is a talented fighter for sure and he impressed me against Herbert Burns, but I feel like Swanson still deserves some top 15 competition (why not a rematch vs Stephens, at this point it makes sense for both and would likely be a fun fight, or fresh matchups vs Ryan Hall, Mitchell, Ige), or at least som fan friendly matchups vs old lions like him (Alex Cacerès, Darren Elkins...). A win over Pineda does nothing for him, and a loss would be a nightmare.

Chandler is nothing else then an overated guy. He know anyone who can wrestle in the UFC will bust him up so he wait, hoping to get a huge payday. Maybe he will accept a fight againts a only standing guy like Drew Dober but he will never fight a guy like Ferguson. Poirier, Oliveira, Ferreira also are going to kick is ass.

Honesly I don't think Chandler will beat most top 15 or any top 15 guy if he getting Ko'd by featheweights and People who didn't get a single win in the UFC. It be enjoyble to watch Tony maul him because I love me  some El Cucey

Yan vs. Sterling
Petr Yan, TKO, R4
Yan will finish Sterling dominantly after exercising patience early on and avoiding takedowns. Hook to the liver and ground and pound.

Vettori vs. Souza
Marvin Vettori, TKO, R2
Vettori will walk down Jacare and swarm him with punches and Souza will not be able to take it as he will spam useless and lazy takedowns.

dos Santos vs. Gane
Ciryl Gane, SUB, R3
What a glorious matchup. Gane by heel hook after out striking the legend JDS.

Dern vs. Jandiroba
Mackenzie Dern, SUB, R2
Could go either way. One of the best women fights out there currently.

Torres vs. Hill II
Tecia Torres, DEC
Torres by clinch and wrestle fest. Expect a lot of knees to the legs and a lot of double legs.

Hooper vs. Barrett
Chase Hooper, DEC
Both guys just aren't UFC ready. Peter sucks and Chase can't box if his life depended on it. Chase will grind him out with takedowns.

Spivak vs. Vanderaa
Sergey Spivak, DEC
Sergei will win using his educated jab and wrestling.

Yan vs. Sterling
Petr Yan, DEC
This could go either way. Sterling could get a KO if he avoids shooting for takedowns, because if Sterling grapples, he could gas. But then again, Yan could outgrapple Sterling to victory. Sterlings gonna gas either way.

dos Santos vs. Gane
Ciryl Gane, TKO, R2
Dos Santos wins Round 1, and then Gane KO’s JDS in Round 2. Happens all the time.

Ferguson vs. Oliveira
Charles Oliveira, SUB, R2
I honestly don’t care who wins. I think Olivera will submit Ferguson, just like with Kevin Lee. That’s all I’m saying.

Torres vs. Hill II
Tecia Torres, DEC
Torres by robbery. Judges hate Hill.

Quarantillo vs. Tucker
Billy Quarantillo, DEC
Quarantillos gonna tie up Gavin Tucker to the decision.

Swanson vs. Pineda
Daniel Pineda, DEC
Pineda is younger, and has a shorter layoff.

Don't care too much about the result, I'm okay with either one winning. But to me this has potential for FOTY despite all the great fights we've already seen. These guys don't give a **** about defense and just go for the kill, I'm expecting a lot of blood.
