Whittaker vs. Costa
Robert Whittaker, TKO, R3
Costa was compeltely exposed by Izzy (and kinda by Hall before then), so as long as Whittaker sticks to a gameplan and fights smart I think he can knock him out. He's far better at controlling the range, he is so much faster, and his footwork is very good that he wont get stuck against the fence. Wittaker has also started incorporating those leg kicks to beat up the lead leg, and that will just further ruin and slow down Costa. Only thing I will say is that idk how Whittaker's body is, and Costa has very good kicks and hooks to the body so maybe there's a wakeness to exploit there. Anyways Whittaker should still probably smash him, both guys seem to like to brawl it out and I think Whittaker wins those since he just fights smarter than the likes of old ass BigRigg and Uriah Hall...

Espino wins by submision. We will see who is the strongest wrestler/grappler out of the two, and I believe that's Juan "El Guapo" Espino. It will be a fun fight to watch.

Mega fight for the hardcore. The winner can make a strong run at the division. Especially Romanov.

I think both Romanov & Espino can beat some ranked opponent (tybura, Ivanov, Harris). Its sad that they have to face each other when they are unknow to casual. As for the prediction, I have to go with Romanov just because its a young men sport.

The addition of Klose and Stephens makes this a killer card for the hardcores. I'd wager there's a good chance none of the fights on the card so far make it to decision.

poor Stephens, how many lost in a row can a guy take before the cut? I know BJpenn set a record 7 but I dont think anyone else lost 5 in a row without being cut.

Jeremy Stephens is filled with so much determination but it’s all over for him. Really hope he can win but no way he wins.
