I think Matt Wiman vs Jordan Levitt will piss me off more then Vilante vs Coliher. I don’t want to see a guy who lost every round 10-8 in his last few fight in the UFC because it a clear set up fight. Vilent vs Collher is bad, But at lest it competive, And I skip both of them

I'm starting to have doubts about  Vettori. Mostly because I didn't realize that he's not been preparing for a five rounder and Hermannsson has.

Yeah, but I'm starting to think I might actually be ********. I'd still be picking Vettori with confidence if he was prepared but he isn't.

I dunno. It's not an easy fight to pick.

@Tioeken that wasn't worth posting TBH. It lasted about 0.5 seconds, went nowhere, and Roberson got reversed.

Still not confident on Hermannsson but yeah, not confident on  Vettori either.

As my stupid ass just posted in the wrong thread. I was concerned about Vettori's preparation for 5 rounds as well. I think im still gonna pick him to win.

For me it's a conditioning questioning. A lot of people have Hermannsson by sub but personally I think that's unlikely. Vettori doesn't have a ******* neck.

Late-ish TKO from mount by Hermannsson is more likely to me.

@fisty I disagree, Hermanson is gonna win this easly. Hermanson is a monster on the ground and He will get it to the ground eventully, Hermanson problem is people with the power to knock out a skysc****r like Mahetta and Cannonour because he fight scared. Only thing that freak me out is that I think the Bookie might me on to something lining him the favourite while I line him +200

Is Hermannson really a better BJJ threat than Shoeface who couldn't Sub Vettori? Because nothing about his record says he is. I mean really he pulled a rabbit out of his ass with that heel hook on Gastelum and his only other sub or note is what--Mererly sharts? Branch? He doesn't even have his blackbelt IIRC.

Jack was subbed by Caezer Ferriera. He's a catch wrestler with a Greco background. He's not even really a sub artist and doesn't have that many of them.


I don't buy it.

I'm sticking with Vettori with low confidence. This is a coin toss fight.
