Usman vs. Burns
Kamaru Usman, DEC
I picked Gilbert before, but now that I got time to think about it, the more I just see Usman mauling him against the fence for 5 rounds. I want Gilbert though. He is more active, more hungry, more powerful, more entertaining, and has a better champion mentality.

Barber vs. Grasso
Maycee Barber, TKO, R3
TECHNICAL striking match. Maycee by standing TKO.

Weidman vs. Hall II
Uriah Hall, TKO, R1
Uriah will get taken down, but soon after he will connect with a shot on the chin and Chris will go down. If Chris loses this one, dude honestly just needs to hang the gloves up. I would like to see him go on one last run for the belt if he somehow wins here.

Usman vs. Burns
Gilbert Burns, DEC
Usman is obviously a tremendous fighter, and I will pick him to win against almost anybody in the ww rankings right now, but I think Burns will pose him a very tricky challenge. Burns is so dangerous on the ground, I don't think Usman wants to take him down, and in the stand up, I think Burns is more powerful and dangerous. It will be interesting, but I think we will have a new champ.

Weidman vs. Hall II
Uriah Hall, TKO, R2
If Hall wins this, it's time to give him a deserved ranked opponent. Not some Spider Silva/Weidman/Souza/Rockhold, but someone like Romero, Cannonier, or even a Gastelum rematch will be a fantastic test for him.

How has Usman vs Burns fizzled?
They could easily have two titles fights on the same card.

If you look at Gilbert's inzta he keeps telling Usman to sign the contract, implying the fight is not done

Usman is a smart fighter. But for a "nightmare" he could ironically cure insomnia.

Gastelum vs. Heinisch
Kelvin Gastelum, TKO, R1
Though his momentum not very good, Gastelum makes a good lecture material on how to hurt a fast and much taller opponent.

This card is good but you need a really good co-main event to justify the purchase. 
Munhoz-Rivera, Gastelum-Heinisch, Weidman-Hall 2 are all PPV worthy fights, but a good co-main under Usman-Burns would be great. To justify 70 bucks they should've had Yan-Sterling on this card. We don't need 3 title fights with 9 main event worthy fights on the same card. Balance it out so cards like this get some love.

But I would rather watch a card like this than a top-heavy one like 257

I honestly do not like Usman at all but he always seems to get the win. One of the Boring fighters in the UFC and the champ at that, I'll be expecting alot of toe stomps and double & single leg hugging until Burns skeets all over Usman and then he'll get the drift

Barber vs. Grasso

I Love what Barber brings to the UFC. She's tough and especially violent!!! Yeah, she's to die for!!! 😍
