Nunes vs. Anderson
Megan Anderson, TKO, R2
I share a birthday with Anderson. I live down the street from Anderson. I may never have a chance to pick such a huge underdog again. No guts, no glory.

If Megan Anderson did not connect a toe in Zingano eyes, she's probably out of a job now.
Dont expect the next Holm-Roussey, Dillashaw-Barrao or RDA-Pettis here because the difference is all those time you had a legit top 5 fighting the champion. 
The only time I remember a guy not in the top 10 beating the champ, it was when Bisping KO Rockhold but as I know, Nunes as not a suspect chin. Maybe she can win with toe in eyes again.

@hyrm And like her 2 fight win streak is increble, 2 other women who shouldn't be in the UFC right now either and I give a cookie to anyone who can say Megan last 2 oppenent names. It 100% be the biggest upset ever for me if Megan win because Nunes is clearly the GOAT

Fair points, Hyrm. Odd that she's not ranked on the UFC site - she's #5 on here, #6 on Sherdog, and their graphic (above) shows her as #1 contender. I'm thinking that's some kind of web glitch.

If I get pasted, I get pasted, but I gotta show some balls sometime.

BTW, nobody has a suspect chin...until they do.

Tapology, and sherdog always rank fighter in the UFC higer. Overeem, JDS, Werdum all droped from 4 to 8 spot on the tapology ranking after being release. UFC probably have guy managing false acount on this site just to keep control of the ranking. 
Look at Volkov, Gaethje, Chandler... they were very low before fighting in the UFC and after one fight they are already top 10



If tomorow Megan Anderson fight any girl above her in this list I pick the other girl without a doubt

Thanks, Jake. I can't get their rankings site to load properly. I'd make some joke about being computer illiterate, but my boss probably wouldn't appreciate that from one of his analysts.

I'm not sure what rankings Hyrm is talking about - his own, I guess. Most reputable sites have Megan Anderson ranked in their top ten at least. I'd be interested to see one that doesn't.

The pick isn't really defensible logically - Nunes being the GOAT and all, and Anderson never really making a strong showing -  but you don't see physical tools like Anderson's very often in women's MMA. And there's that little bit of superstitious mojo of her having the same birthday as mine. And, like I said, when am I going to get a chance to pick an underdog like this again? Worth a shot.

Prediction Comments

Predictions: 11 of 15 Winners, 3 Perfect, 720 Points   |   Tied for 118th

Błachowicz vs. Adesanya
Israel Adesanya, TKO, R3
Błachowicz simply won't be fast enough to keep up with Adesanya and will get out struck. Adesanya will go in for the kill towards the middle of the fight and become a double champion

Nunes vs. Anderson
Amanda Nunes, TKO, R1
Nunes will finish Anderson off with little trouble here

Yan vs. Sterling
Petr Yan, TKO, R3
Yan's power will be too much for Sterling to handle

Makhachev vs. Dober
Islam Makhachev, SUB, R2
Once this fight goes to the ground it will be all over

Santos vs. Rakić
Aleksandar Rakić, TKO, R2
This will be amazing to witness! FOTN

Cruz vs. Kenney
Casey Kenney, DEC
I think Cruz's 2 fight losing streak will become 3 against the younger and hungrier Kenny

Phillips vs. Song
Yadong Song, DEC
Both Phillips and Song are promising young fighters but Song appears to be more well rounded and that's what will split them here

Benavidez vs. Askarov
Askar Askarov, SUB, R2
Askarov's ground game is underappreciated and I'm hoping that he'll be able to show it off here

Kara-France vs. Bontorin
Kai Kara-France, DEC
Kara-France was simply out matched in his last fight and I don't think that the UFC should have fed him to Royval so soon but this is a better match up for him

Elliott vs. Espinosa
Tim Elliott, DEC
Elliott should win a very easy 30-27 decision here

Ulberg vs. Nzechukwu
Kennedy Nzechukwu, TKO, R2
Ulberg still has a lot to prove to and I think he will be caught out here

Brady vs. Matthews
Sean Brady, DEC
This should also be an easy 30-27 for Brady

Souza vs. Lemos
Amanda Lemos, DEC
I think this will be closer than the odds suggest but Lemos should still find a point win here

Medic vs. Cruz
Uros Medic, TKO, R1
The UFC are trying to protect Medic by giving him an easy win. Easy 1st round finish

Jones vs. Bautista
Trevin Jones, SUB, R2
Jones has a strong submission game and I think he will pull off a slight upset here
