Prediction Comments

Predictions: 5 of 8 Winners, 1 Perfect, 300 Points   |   Tied for 1161st

Hermansson vs. Vettori
Jack Hermansson, DEC
jack has the better resume and didn't have the altered camp.

St. Preux vs. Hill
Jamahal Hill, TKO, R2
osp can always surprise, but hill is a future contender in my eyes.

Benítez vs. Jaynes
Gabriel Benítez, DEC
worried about jayne's gas tank even though i think he could put benitez out.

Santos vs. De La Rosa
Taila Santos, DEC
montana could get on top and snatch something, but i'll pick santos to keep it standing.

Dolidze vs. Allan
Roman Dolidze, SUB, R2
allan's losses are mostly via sub so i'll run with that idea.

Evloev vs. Landwehr
Movsar Evloev, DEC
possible nate stuffs td's and lands damage, but i'll pick evloev to stay on top.

Smolka vs. Quiñonez
Jose Alberto Quiñonez, DEC
smolka is inconsistent and needs to find a finish i think, jose can get scorecards i believe.

Wiman vs. Leavitt
Jordan Leavitt, SUB, R2
feel confident that wiman doesn't have it anymore so i'll take him to get his first sub loss.

Flick vs. Durden
Cody Durden, TKO, R2
takin a fun pick here. flick has been ko'd a few times and durden is a finisher.

Jackson vs. Topuria
Ilia Topuria, DEC
thinking topuria is too busy standing and can sprawl when needed.

Villante vs. Collier
Gian Villante, DEC
no faith in either really, just think villante is slightly more durable?

Just like Joanna after the Zhang fight, this card just went from a "6" to a "2". How can we lose Landwehr and Jimmy Flick fights hours before the card starts.

I wonder how differently the Vegas fights are treated compared to the fights at fight island when it comes to the fighters bubbles and testing etc 

Maybe they should  just scrap the Vegas stare downs or change the way they weigh in?

That's a good idea fiddle sticks.

It's always on the last day hours before the event that this happens.

I think it's shady as hell how Fight Island never cancels fights during the week of. They're probably exploiting all kinds of testing loopholes.

We arguably los the two top contenders for fight of the night. We also lost one of the contenders for worst fight of the card. But that does not make this fair. In good news I’m back under my 15U limit after the Flick cancellation.

This sucks ass. Go back to fight Island.

It’s been obvious for months now that the bubble in Vegas has been compromised. Time to move it full time to Fight Island until further notice.
