Vieira vs. Kunitskaya
Ketlen Vieira, DEC
I really dont think Yana is that good. I've never seen Vieira fight but she will probably decisionate Yana. Yana has status for being with Marreta but theres nothing special about her style.

Vieira vs. Kunitskaya
Ketlen Vieira, DEC
Solid high level fight. Don't know why Ketlen is such a huge favorite on Tapology as it is a close fight in my eyes and on paper. I'm still taking Ketlen with low confidence.

Gordon vs. Chavez
Jared Gordon, DEC
Fun fight here. tough to pick. Danny's power and kickboxing was tremendously impressive in his debut, and Jared has good boxing and great wrestling. The only thing Chavez seems to lack is cardio, because he gasses in the 3rd round. I will probably change back and forth on this pick, but my gut is saying Gordon by close decision.

Yana and Vierra are both based on wrestling with bad striking. Yana is probably the best in "push againts the fence" so I think it will be enought to earn a split.

Again Dobson vs a young hyped girls. If ods are again +700 this time i'l take the risk!

Alexey starts pretty slow. Bad striking. I see this going like the Rodrigo fight or Harris one. Chris drops and swarms Alexey before he can show off his ground game.

Eddie is just going to have some 0-1 ufc fighter make a name off him. You hate to see it. Cliche 'WHAT A WIN FOR JOHN CASTENEDA OVER FORMER TITLE CONTENDER!!' bs.

As an arlovski fan it hurts to say but looks like the UFC is done with his 325k to show contract

Man Aspinall and Daukaus both being tested by vets and once again on the same card. The UFC are really setting up a collision course for these two if they both win.

Blaydes vs. Lewis
Derrick Lewis, TKO, R2
Blaydes is the better overall fighter by far, but Lewis hits so damn hard, and Blaydes chin can be cracked... I think he will lose every second of this fight until he knocks Blaydes out cold.

Arlovski vs. Aspinall
Tom Aspinall, TKO, R1
Arlovski still knows how to deal with this less experienced youngsters, this is pretty impressive (but not very entertaining), but I think Aspinall is a bit to much for him.

Imavov vs. Hawes
Nassourdine Imavov, DEC
Hawes is a dangerous man for sure, but French/Daghestani fighter Nassourdine Imavov is tough as a french old oak and he can take a punch like a Daghestani mountain. His cardio is pretty decent, and if he can survive a few early scares, he can mix his nice technicall punching with some well placed takedowns to win a closely contested decision. "Salon the Provence" in the south of France will be celebrating 4 AM victory (local hour) with some nice "Côtes-De-Provence rosé" wine, well except the muslims, who will just drink some hot sugared gunpowder and fresh minth tea maybe.

Zahabi vs. Rodriguez
Drako Rodriguez, DEC
Knowing who Zahabi is the brother of (is my english correct ? This was a tough one for a Frenchman), we can't help but think he has been a disapointment thus far. He has all the knowledge in the world, and his technique is not to blame, but he's just not athletic and powerful and quick and durable enough to be a fighter at this level. Maybe he can still win a decision or two against mediocre cometition, but his body is limiting his talent.

Julian Erosa, SUB, R3
Similar fighters, crazy tough warriors with good boxing, cardio for days, and questionable chins. Potential Fight of the Night for sure. Maybe if Erosa survives the first exchanges he can catch Nate in a dangerous submission at some point, he really impressed me against Wood.

I like this prospect killing tour Arlovski is on. Seems like unless you knock him out quickly, he finds just enough angles to outwork you for a decision. Aspinal looks sharp though. I think he probably gets it done.

Arlovski is a much more narrow dog than he was against Boser. Tom is -265. I would imagine he wants to make a statement here, but Arlovski has only been stopped once in his last 11 fights. I am a big AA fan, but I can’t help but think Tom takes this.
