Are JJ's fans bombing the predictions, or is this just the Contender Series bump? The dude's not bad, but his punches are ugly. I did a profile on Clay, and he's a tricky grappler (two wins via buggy choke!!!), so I don't think JJ can lean on his wrestling like he has in the past. It should be a great fight!

@Indorfin after reading your write-up I'm strongly considering changing my pick to Clay. Great job on that by that way, it's very well-written and informative.

Fremd vs. Oliveira
Josh Fremd, TKO, R2
Connellsville Pa's own Josh Fremd getting some main event love from the LFA, and after his last two wins, it's understandable. He's looked devastating in his last 2 outings, and with continued training out at Factory X, I think there's plenty of upside. Bruno Oliveira is another solid matchup, and I would expect another dominating performance. Fremd by R2 stoppage.

Bush vs. Clem
Dakota Bush, SUB, R1
Nothing like getting strangled by an outta control Hairy Bush......

Ricci vs. Grimes
Tabatha Ricci, SUB, R1
Duuuuude. C'mon LFA. You don't gotta try so hard to to get Ricci a Submission Victory. It's looking like this Grimey ***** will just lay down, wrap her opponent's arms around her neck, and then all they have to do is apply pressure. C'mon maaaan.

Ricci is currently a -1600 favorite. Did LFA think they were fooling anyone with this matchup? Now I really hope Grimes comes in looking way better than she ever has, gets a ko like shana Dobson

@Fisty Thanks! Yeah, I'm on the fence about who to favor. JJ hits hard, and Clay does have a 9 second KO loss in his amateur record, which feels a little concerning. I just feel like there's something wrong about JJ's punches that I can't put my finger on.

Casual New Predictions

Predictions: 5 of 6 Winners, 1 Perfect, 275 Points   |   305th Place

Silveira vs. Paul
I embrace Joshua Silveira at -365. He has a quixotic suplex. Silveira could wobble the counteragent. I know it!

Bush vs. Clem
I trust Dakota Bush at -360. He has an automatic diet. Bush should operate the enemy.

Pauga vs. Thomas
I appoint Zac Pauga at -610. He has a hot quivering palm death touch. Pauga shall charge the opposing forces.

Palencia vs. Saudino
I am going with Richard Palencia at -450. He has an automatic stamina. Palencia will likely modulate the foe. Money in the bank!

Okanovich vs. Clay
I fancy JJ Okanovich at -175. He has a cryptic takedown and a ruthless sleeper slam and also a yucky piledriver. Okanovich can kick the crowd noise.

Fremd vs. Oliveira
I am loyal to Josh Fremd at -140. He has a xerophthalmic ankle lock and an advanced armpit slam and also a jingoistic hammerlock. Fremd will likely impair the bandit.

Fremd vs Oliveira

Bruno Olivera TKO RD 3

I'm taking the unpopular pick in this one, I think Fremd will struggle to deal with the length of Oliveira who will have the reach advantage in this one. Bruno has a long frame and a well rounded striking game, he switched over to training at American Top Team and has a solid background in BJJ though we've yet to see it. I think the outside knee and calf kicks will be there early which will allow him to land some big shots mid to late rounds.  Should be a good one , can't wait!
