Overeem vs. Volkov
Alexander Volkov, TKO, R3
Overeem is a legendary fighter and though he went veteran mode and finished Augusto Sakai, he looked way too hittable and was getting dominated before the rally. Alexander has a lot more technique and power than Augusto. I expect a great fight where Volkov comes out with the win.

McCann vs. Procópio
Molly McCann, DEC
Meatball is very tough and not to be underestimated. I can expect a scrappy performance where she grinds out a decision win.

Rodriguez vs. Marques
Mike Rodriguez, TKO, R1
Mike is a good rangy striker. He will win by TKO.

Sandhagen seems to just be a longer version of Cub Swanson or Yair Rodriguez, 2 guys that Frankie clearly outclassed. I wouldn't trust Sandhagens 30% TDD

Sandhagen vs. Edgar
Cory Sandhagen, TKO, R2
People are picking Edgar? Surprising. Cory's last fight really impressed me. He showed a sniper like ability and his striking is damn fluid. Frankie has a good chance but I wasn't really impressed with his win over Munhoz and I think Sandhagen takes him out. Edgar is a pretty solid underdog prop though.

Ferreira vs. Dariush II
Diego Ferreira, SUB, R2
Great fight. Winner is right there in the top 5.

Arce vs. Valiev
Timur Valiev, TKO, R1
Timur looked awesome before he lost to Jones. Sniper kicks and is pretty sharp.

Johnson vs. Guida
Michael Johnson, DEC
Pretty good matchup. I have Johnson by decision. I think he will come out looking fantastic against Guida. Clay is one of those guys that didn't age too much and is still pretty good. Excited for this one.

Overeem vs. Volkov
Alistair Overeem, TKO, R4
I honestly thought Overeem was done after the Bigfoot and Browne knockouts, then he rebounded with a 5-1 run with wins over Cigano Dos Santos, Frank Mir, Arlovski, that led to a title fight against Mioci he ALMOST WON !!! Hélas, he lost the back and forth "Fight Of The Night" by KO and I thought he was done again... BUT he rebounded with 2 meaningfull wins against Werdum and Hunt ! Before getting brutally knocked out by Ngannou and Blaydes. The kind of knockouts that could end a career, my god, that uppercut, Jésus Christ those elbows ! But Overeem kept winning, and is now on a very impressive 4-1 run, outclassing and outsmarting both respectable legends of the game (Oleinik) and dangerous young guns (Pavlovich), his one loss being a controversial stoppage at the very last second of a 5 rounds fight he was dominating. Here he is, without muscles, without a chin, but still improving his fight IQ, cardio, wrestling and feints. Admirable. If he wins this against Volkov, he would absolutely deserve to fight for the title again, at 41 years old, and would still have a chance to win it. I would love to see a Jones fight too. What a legend. I'm glad his brain looks intact after all those terrifying KO's...
