Benavidez vs. Askarov
Joseph Benavidez, DEC
Card is fun. Joe has better combinations and striking flow.

Cruz vs. Kenney
Dominick Cruz, DEC
Hard one to pick. Leaning Cruz. Cruz without a doubt if prime. Casey is a good prospect.

Costa vs. Jones
Randy Costa, TKO, R1
Trevin didn't look that good before his comeback KO. Costa will murk him.

Błachowicz vs. Adesanya
Jan Błachowicz, TKO, R3
Blachowicz is gonna pick apart Adesanya bit by bit. First with head punches and kicks, and then destroy his ribs like with Reyes.

Predictions: 11 of 15 Winners, 6 Perfect, 740 Points   |   Tied for 72nd

Błachowicz vs. Adesanya
Jan Błachowicz, DEC
Jan has the power, grappling, size and strength advantage. He will use his clinch and boxing game to score his first title defense by way of decision. Izzy is better on the feet but Jan will maul him against the cage.

Nunes vs. Anderson
Amanda Nunes, SUB, R2
Nunes gets an early TD and batters Megan with GNP until R1 ends. R2 is more of the same but Megan gives her back up and gets choked out.

Santos vs. Rakić
Aleksandar Rakić, DEC
I just feel like Rakic is better all around technically and will put on a masterclass on the feet and ground.

Yan vs. Sterling
Petr Yan, TKO, R3
Yan will get the better of the striking until Aljo gets finished in R3.

Makhachev vs. Dober
Islam Makhachev, DEC
Good fight but a pretty easy win for Islam to build his resume in my eyes.

I dont think Blachowichz is fast enought to touch Adesanya like he did  with Reyes. I think Adesanya win this by UD 50-45.
