Hitler was not afraid to fight strong countries. Believe me, Putin has killed more in his life, only his citizens. Putin can only fight with countries that have given up weapons, provided that no one will fight. Believe me, he is much worse than Hitler. It's strange that everyone knows this except you.

I still can't figure out why pettis went down to 155 lbs and lost. Then he returned to 170 lbs.
when Ferreira was messing around, Dariush fought and won. Perhaps I would have lost to whoever Dariush fought with. We will not know this because Ferreira has avoided fights.
Charles Oliveira avoids a fight with Beneil Dariush. Ferreira escapes a fight with Dober

Jaynes vs. Smith
Devonte Smith, TKO, R2
Justin Jaynes has been more active recently but that's the only thing he's got going for him. I can see this being a fairly one sided fight as Devonte Smith can unleash some nasty punches when he finds his range. Jaynes will probably survive the first round but unless he finds an early KO, he's gonna be in for a bad night.

@Stephen I agree, I feel there is a big gap in skill in that matchup, Devonte Smith is faster and more technical

Jaynes v Smith

Predictions: 9 of 12 Winners, 3 Perfect, 555 Points   |   Tied for 338th

I have to agree with @Stephen and @Fisty. Jaynes has power and can get inside to throw bombs. However, he gets inside with combos off the right straight instead of the jab and he leads with his head. He also showed in the Benitez fight that he doesn't check leg kicks. Another thing I noticed is that when he's not rushing to throw bombs he stays in kicking range. For a brawler like Jaynes, this is dangerous, particularly against rangy fighters. Smith is a really bad matchup for him, and doubly so on short notice. Smith will eat up Jaynes' lead leg and look to exploit his brawler instincts. This doesn't mean Jaynes can't catch Smith, especially in the first round when he's explosive, but I think he's going to hit mostly air and eat counters. I see smith winning a first or second round T/KO.

@ranger I hadn't even considered the leg kicks, that makes it even worse. It's a shame that the odds will most likely be horribly lopsided because I could confidently bet on Smith here.

Devonte Smith did not fight for 2 years, he had a leg injury and a mental tram. Jaynes has a slim chance of winning. Confuses only simple Smith. But he is a great guy, he went through a great camp. I was really looking forward to performing again. Justin Jaynes defeated Frank Camacho by chance. I really hope that Smith will win. I believe in him. He deserves it. In the last fight, he simply underestimated his opponent.

Losing to Khama Worthy doesn't make anyone a bum. Worthy would obliterate Jaynes, they aren't cut from the same cloth. And that hook wasn't weak, it was humungous. I was in the crowd that night, it sounded like a ******* shotgun.

Yall gotta stop thumbing people down who have a different opinion than you on a match's outcome, but either way, yeah losing to Kharma Worthy does not make you a bum at all regardless of who you think is winning between Smith and Jaynes.

after this fight, Smith was absent for a long time. We all know what happens when you are away for a long time. Ponzinibbio will prove it to you. Jaynes can easily win. It all depends on Smith

If Smith wasn't looking like a gorilla on his instagram, I would pick Jaynes to win.
IF Smith doesn't let Jayne set up his hard shots, Devonte will finish Jaynes late in the fight with hard punches.
If Smith's achilles injury is of any seriousness at any point in the fight, he will get caught and slept. 
I think this is a fair matchup for Smith to make a big comeback.
Jaynes is tough, but he's tiny.

I know this doesn't mean much....but Jaynes beat Dequan Townsend (6'3)....TWICE
I wouldn't be surprised if he pulls off the spectacular KO.

Unfortunate news. Andre Ewell is out of his scheduled fight this Saturday against Cody Stamann at #UFCVegas18. Stamann will likely remain on the card against an opponent TBA.

Smith winning isn't a certainty but I'd say he's got the be the fairly big favourite coming into this. The only way I can possibly see Jaynes winning is by an early KO as he often comes out with a lot of aggression at the start and if one of his shots lands then it could finish it but if it goes past the 1st round then I just can't see his defence holding up to Smith's power. It's first round or bust for Jaynes in my opinion. Should be a cracking fight though!
