@Bazik I tried to have your back by making my own post about my belief on corruption in sports...but you're acting like a bastard about your european ideology.
This is a fight forum, I would prefer we keep it that way.

I don't believe Smith is as aggressive as people think.
He's strong, quick, and precise with his strikes but not much output. 
His contender series was pretty slow pace until his opponent went for a weak takedown.
His fight with Erosa was his best performance. Erosa has been knocked out before by smaller guys though. That W was a given.
His fight with Ma was pretty rough. Very unimpressive performance. He waited too patiently on an opponent that let him stalk him down.
Jaynes doesn't allow room for error and stays moving forward. Unfortunately that is also why I believe he gets picked apart quite easily by the longer and taller Devonte Smith.
Jaynes isn't technical enough. Just another peekaboo style clubber.

McCann v Procopio

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

To me, this fight is closer than the pick percentage suggests. Molly will have the edge in MMA experience and striking. She switches stances, has good foot movement, and has some good dirty boxing and elbows along the cage. Even though her grappling is getting better, she’s still susceptible to the takedown and getting subbed. Procopio will have the slight edge in grappling and will match Molly’s output just as she did against Rosa. Procopio may actually throw more strikes than Molly, but I think Molly’s will do more damage. In her fight against Rosa, Procopio was frozen by the inside leg kick. Every time she ate one, she treated it like a reset button and shut off any momentum she might have generated. I think this just speaks to her inexperience with striking. She also left her chin exposed when she threw her left hand, making her more susceptible to being dropped against an opponent who takes angles like Molly. I think Procopio’s best chance is to wait for Molly to pressure her against the cage, which she eventually will, clinch up, and try to secure the takedown. As long as it’s on the ground, I think it favors Procopio. I just think Molly can prevent that and beat Procopio up in the process. McCann by dec.

@ Axl702 thanks a lot! I appreciate it very much! I was wrong then, I drank a lot - I was tired of everything. There have been no battles for a long time, I can not hold back my emotions. @ Axl702 I love you very much.
I'm even ashamed to read what I could write there.
You have a very cute avatar! I lost my best friend here #freemoneyforall I still don't know what happened to him (
but @Xconchris you are a total ***** !!!

I dont like too many underdogs on this card, but another besides Diego Ferriera is Joselyne Edwards to win over Karol Rosa.

Someone here on the forum wrote that he studied at the same school with Edwards and is personally acquainted with it. I think he knows for sure who will win here. I'm for Rosa

Timur Valiev by 3rd round tko or decision. He'll leg kick and pop shot the man to death.
I also think Edwards easily wins this fight. Her aggression, size and hook combos will be the difference.
i'm going with seung woo choi by decision as underdog, I cannot back up a 1 week replacement. 
Diego is good, I respect him a lot, I even predicted him to be the first to submit Pettis.
I just think it will be a repeat of their first fight where Beneil has the upper hand the entire time. 
Close fight but a clear winner.

Jaynes looked super good bumrushing Camacho, but he's looked pretty amateur before and after that. Old school Chuck Liddell era MMA. He can't check leg kicks, he doesn't have the cardio to go 3 rounds, he doesn't seem adept at grappling. He's a wrestler but doesnt seem to know how to incorporate that. I think he's going to be a Tim Elliot type company man who Dana can call up to make a fun short notice fight. But he's not beating anyone decent.

@Hyrm Gotta love those Russian Wrestlers! They are the best. Khabib is just the beginning, Gonna see a whole bunch of hungry Russian Wrestlers coming up and dominating the global scene. If you dont like them, well you better get used to them. : )
