I agree. Cruz has the experience advantage and I think he will be able to pull out the win

A Ton of GREAT FIGHTS !!!! CAN'T WAIT !!!

I am really expecting some amazing things on this card :
From a resurgence of older fighers... 
From young lions rising to the top to show the mma world they are coming for greatness... 
From current champions holding on to what is precious to them as they accept new challengers...

Its going to be Awesome !!!   Just need to find the right snacks to enjoy the show  is the hard part !!

I dont get how Jake Matthews struggled against Diego Sanchez ( punch drunk fighter )...  You have to be really really not training or just dont care about the fight .  

Thats why I believe Sean Brady is about to piece together something beautiful  against Jake Matthews. IMO '

Stop spreading False Narrative. Jake Matthew Owned Diego Sanchez. Kicking someone ass 30-26  is not Struggling. I think you saying this because he didn't finish him, So Khabib Struggle agaist Barbosa to you also?

Błachowicz vs. Adesanya
Israel Adesanya, TKO, R2
Jan is good and has KO power, duh but Israel is too quick I feel. Izzy can be in and out before Jan can think about attacking. I feel like I am being conservative with a 2rd KO, likely in the 1st. Yes, Jan has the power to KO Izzy but I really don't think Jan Blachowicz is going to be the one to do it.

Nunes vs. Anderson
Amanda Nunes, TKO, R1
Megan is green, and she fell into fighting after quitting on her dream of becoming a conductor for an orchestra. Nunes is a fighter to her core. This is simply a no brainer. Sure, Megan is tall but only 2 inches taller than Amanda.

Could you link the resource to when Megan spoke on that? That's interesting to me.

megan is 4" taller than amanda. i would be interested also to hear megan talk about conducting an orchestra. fighting is a kinda strange second career option behind that. but you never know "astro girl" alex chambers was studying to be an astrophysicist before she quit college to become an mma fighter.

Błachowicz vs. Adesanya
Israel Adesanya, TKO, R4
Izzy has better footwork and his feints are some of the best in the sport, I think he slowly picks Jan apart until he finds a finish. The first two rounds are going to be extremely dangerous, Izzy needs to play it as perfect as possible.

Nunes vs. Anderson
Amanda Nunes, TKO, R1
I don't see how Nunes loses unless Megan has something up her sleeve in the striking department that we've never seen before

Yan vs. Sterling
Aljamain Sterling, SUB, R5

Makhachev vs. Dober
Drew Dober, DEC
**** Islam.

Santos vs. Rakić
Aleksandar Rakić, TKO, R2
Rakic looks like the next #1 contender in this division behind Glover, but this is a great way to see which one of these guys belongs in the T5 right now. I think Rakic is a more complete fighter and he will exploit Santos trying to trying to be wild and chaotic

Cruz vs. Kenney
Casey Kenney, DEC
I don't think Dom can hang with the new kids on the block, I think Father Time is here and those feet don't lie

I think that Brady is better version of Matthews.
He has better wrestling,striking and making presure.
I was very suprised when i watched domiantion over Naurdiev or McGee and how easily he defated Aguilera.
