Miocic vs. N'Gannou II
Francis N'Gannou, TKO, R1
If you think about it, it was amazing to see Ngannou surviving 5 full rounds of brutal domination by Miocic. He doesn't have much more than two rounds in the bag, but he has heart for days, he's tough and durable, and those two rounds of pure violence are all he needs to finish a fight. In the first fight, he landed one or two punches clean, that's all, and that was enough to hurt Miocic and destroy his face. He was too impatient and reckless, and got tired unusually quickly (he usually has 2 rounds of cardio). So of course Miocic can survive again, and dominate the later rounds en route to a decision, but I think the most likely outcome is Ngannou eventually catching Miocic clean in round 1 or 2...

Almeida vs. O'Malley
Sean O'Malley, TKO, R2
Super fun fight.

Menifield vs. Knight
Alonzo Menifield, TKO, R1
Last chance for Menifield to show he has more in the bag than half a round. He was so disapointing, I thought he could reach the top 10 after his first two KO's in the UFC, now he might be fighting for his career. Knight is dangerous and strong, but he fought lesser competition than Menifield, and I'm not conviced he's the better fighter here. I hope this is fun.

re-thinking of my pick, Prime Woodley win this easy but the 38years old Woodley is to slow to win a jab batle with Luque. I also think he as became too much cautious to secure a double leg takedown. Usman definitivelly take is soul!

Woodley vs. Luque
Vicente Luque, DEC
Poor Woodley. Luque doesn't have the well rounded arsenal Usman, Burns or Covington had, so maybe Woodley won't be so gunshy and petrified and will land something hard from time to time, but Luque has a solid chin, good pressure boxing and decent cardio, so he will likely take the decision here.

Gooden vs. Nurmagomedov
Jared Gooden, DEC
I'm not convinced yet by this Nurmagomedov...

I'm so confendent in Volkonoski, He the smartest fighter in the UFC who always fight with the  perfect game plan. Holloway and Volkonoski are levels above everyone in featherweight right now. Holloway landed like 500 stikes in both the Ortega fight and the Katter fight, Non of that **** happen agaist Volkonoski, I don't think Holloway landed triple digits strikes agaist Volk in any of their fight. 

Yeah, Ortega have Improve his boxing, But that all gonna be in vain with Volk does the same think he did to Holloway and kick the **** out of his leg and Volk just has to avoid the sub game but Volk is built like a  **** brickhouse and a really good wresler, So I won't count on it

It is really foolish to think that stiopic wont get this one done. And Volk can beat Brian but Brian looked so damn good in his last fight.

This will be different, Francis ain't playing games no more. He is starching his opponents and Miocic is going out in the first round. Francis vs. Jones is going to happen.

Woodley vs. Luque
Vicente Luque, TKO, R2
Tyron Woodley has not been the same psychologically after losing 15 rounds in a row and ending his last fight against bitter rival Colby Covington with a rib injury. his next fight is against a much younger Vicente Luque who is in his best moment. Perhaps the spirit of rivalry between American Top Team vs. Blackzillians or the need to win 3 losses push Woodley to show a better version than in previous fights. But if he comes out very conservative and without throwing combinations, he can be finished by Luque lacking in a good volume of strikes and a devastating KO power. Woodley should try to use his wrestling, but he also has to watch out for Luque's Credentials on the ground.

Mullarkey vs. Worthy
Khama Worthy, TKO, R1
Worthy has earned his place based on good performances, first knocking out prospect Devonte Smith in the biggest upset at 2019 odds, then defeating Luis Pena on the ground (Pena's specialty). Although he is coming off a knockout loss in the first round this happened to Azaitar, one of the strongest punchers in the UFC. For his part, the highlight that the Australian Mullarkey has shown is a good control on the ground against Ziam. I see Worthy able to defend the takedown attempts and landing the big punch by getting the stoppage in the first round.

Almeida vs. O'Malley
Thomas Almeida, TKO, R2
Sean O'Malley is a waste of talent. The guy has good knockout power, a varied arsenal of strikes, decent BJJ (Sean didn't look bad on Quintet) and movement. But he trains with Tim Welch and his entourage of followers (there are better coaches in MMA Lab than Welch) and Sean now only knows how to promote stupid lifestyles. Thominhas if he loses the fight he will be cut, but the Brazilian is a strong striker, if he is able to survive O'Malley's strong punches he can implement a combination similar to Gaethje in WSOF (Heavy leg kicks and stronger hooks) and cause him a lot of damage like Soukhamthath or Chito Vera. On his part O'Malley should surround himself with people who really help him improve his skills and avoid cutting so much weight (despite being an ectomorph he looked like a zombie at his last weigh-in).
