Think whittakers may be exposed by costas power. Don't think Costa will be as sheepish in this fight

Whittaker vs. Costa
Robert Whittaker, DEC
All Rob needs is a jab, and takedowns both of which he has and uses frequently. Costa won’t be able to keep up and he will be gunshy for the whole fight trying to find his pressure heavy rhythm but Rob will consistently interrupt it.

Meerschaert vs. Fabiński
Bartosz Fabiński, DEC
Bartosz is much stronger and much better than Gerald. Meerschaert just isn’t that good.

Romanov vs. Espino
Juan Espino, SUB, R1
Guys stop counting Espino out.

Levy vs. Hubbard
Austin Hubbard, DEC
Austin has beautiful hands.

Whittaker vs. Costa
Robert Whittaker, DEC
Sober Costa is dangerous, and Whittaker's chin isn't the best, but he should still be able to survive a few scares and land his own offense and takedowns for a competitive but clear decision.

Romanov vs. Espino
Alexander Romanov, TKO, R1
Romanov is a scary gorilla. Heavy takedown into mount, and sloppy double hand ground and pound until inconsciousness.

Klose vs. Stephens
Drakkar Klose, TKO, R2
I don't think Lighweights will be nicer than featherweights with Stephens at this point.

Sherman vs. Porter
Chase Sherman, TKO, R2
Sherman looked great in his last fight, but his defense is still a problem, so Porter still has a chance.

Pena vs. Munoz
Luis Pena, DEC
Pena has mad potential, with great stand up skills and good wrestling, but he seems very shy and conservative recently... Maybe he's in the wrong weight class ? Maybe it's a confidence issue ? I still thinks he can make a decent run if he finds his groove.

Wouldn't be shocked if Gastelum fills in either.

Whittaker vs. Gastelum
Robert Whittaker, DEC
Back when this fight was first scheduled after the Whittaker v Romero II fight, I firmly believed that Kelvin would KO Rob and take the belt because the damage Rob took was just insane. But now I think Rob is going to be as close to 100% as possible, and I think his entire skillset is just way better than Kelvin's. The boxing will be an issue, but I think Rob will have an advantage essentially everywhere else.

Dojr think Gastelum can beat Rob anywhere. Whittakers is too fast too clever and hits too hard for gastelum.

Romanov vs Espino is some of the best unranked matchmaking I’ve seen. A great clash of two different ground styles. Someone give Sean a cookie.

This could be a hell of a match. I'm taking Espino because he's with ATT.

This is an interesting spot for Juan Espino as an underdog. Romanov fights like a big mauler, but he's fairly undersized. Juan will be the bigger man. Romanov eats way too many shots on the feet, but if he takes Espino down, that Espino's world. I kinda like the underdog odds for Espino figuring out a submission.
