Weird fight, but why not. Tibau is still a decent fighter, and Macdonald is in a strange place right now, and if this can get him his last chance at competing for a belt, so be it..

Would have been a cool fight in their prime but Rory is shot at 30 and Glis is 38 expect a boring rory spam strike decision. if it goes to the ground rory wil lose to a lightweight.

Ferreira vs. Camozzi
Cezar Ferreira, SUB, R2
Toss up if the grapplers grapples he will win, if they stay standing chris could win not sure how gone he is at 34.

MacDonald vs. Tibau
Rory MacDonald, DEC
Rory looked good af in his last fight! But Gleison's not gonna be that easy to sub. Probably 30-27 decision

Cooper III vs. Aleksakhin
Ray Cooper III, DEC
Alekshakhin's been on a tear, and in the past few years has only struggled a bit with the highest level wrestlers. I think he gets a decision here, but could get the knockout

Júnior vs. Magalhães
Antônio Carlos Júnior, DEC
I think Vinny gives Shoeface a little trouble on the ground, so I'm not picking him to win by sub, but, I do think he wins the fight

Zeferino vs. Ponet
João Zeferino, SUB, R1
11 out of Ponet's 13 losses are by sub. He won't survive a round against Zeferino who trains out of Renzo Gracie Academy.

Not surprised 58% are saying Magomed by sub. Could be...

Lawlor vs. Young
Jordan Young, DEC
Surprised the votes are so far apart here. Tom Lawlor is a good wrestler, and got subbed by a high level black belt in Antonio Carlos Junior. I don't think he'll get subbed by Jordan Young, and to be honest, I think he might even win a round. I definitely thought about picking Lawlor to win it, but decided not to. Might change it though

Yo3L_R0mero, I'm not sure why you are surprised that currently 90% of people believe that Young is going to win. Any way you look at it, this is a very one-sided fight. Where do I begin? Lawlor is 39 with a horrible 10-8 record. He's lost 3 straight. He also hardly ever fights. He's had 4 fights in the past 6 years. You don't get better at something by hardly ever doing it. Meanwhile, Young is 11-1 with 9 subs. Subbing 75% of his opponents is damn impressive, I don't care who they were. He has never been finished as a pro or amateur. Young is also 13 years younger and 4 inches taller. The first odds were just released and Young is currently -350. I thought he would be -400, but the bottom line is that Lawlor will have a hard time making it past the first round.

MacDonald vs. Tibau
Rory MacDonald, SUB, R1
MacDonald went out and made Millender look like a ******* chump in his last fight, which is not easy to do. Tibau is dangerous but he's slowed down a lot and his only truly dangerous weapon still is his jiu jitsu, but Rory has never been submitted. This is a lot to write for a 97% consensus pick, I guess.

I hope Spohn wins so he can get back on track, but this is the sensible pick for sure.

@fisty dude not wrong tho, Maybe he’s a bit hyperbolic but dude is clearly slowing down, dude went to a draw with an 100 year old fitch and lost his recent fight to regional middleweight champion Georgard Mousassi and former regional welterweight champion Douglas Lima, in fight which weren’t close, A submission over a guy who doesn’t attend Jiu-Jitsu training in Curtis Millender don’t change anything
