Weidman vs. Hall II
Uriah Hall, DEC
Maybe Weidman can pressure, close the distance and wrestle Hall but I think Hall is physically superior and will be able to clock Weidman

Smith vs. Crute
Jimmy Crute, TKO, R2
Crute is gonna eat Smith like a salad for lunch

Batgerel vs. Natividad

Finally, this is the first real flyweight threat to Val sine JJ and maybe Carmouche

Andrade have power but I remember how JJ beat her in a technical batle. I dont think she can force Valentina to brawl.

Have we seen shevchenko eat heavy shots at flyweight? She fought Nunes and her chin absolutely held up but that was at Bantamweight. I'm genuinely curious and not trying to imply anything

I hope this fight is atlest entertaining, Valitina is ususlly boring, I think Andrade could force a fight out of her because Valitina is just a pure counterpuncher, And that why she has a lot of lackluster fight  where she does not alot. Andrade is gonna go foward ,so it could  be fun. I'm rooting for Andrade here, Because I find Valitina fanboys anoying

Weili Is gonna really hurt Rose . Rose should of lost all her fight man since being champ . Joanna won the rematch,  but I'm not gonna call it a robery because it was 2-2 going into the 5th and Rose got a takedown that lead to nothing and judges love that ****,. Rose got her ass kick by Andade twice and somehow got called the winner in the rematch. Weili is a roid mutent and she gonna ownd her as Rose

I’m hoping for an Andrade win. It’s going to be hella difficult but I can see Andrade finding ways.

Andrade always looks like a child who just took a mean fart and then smells it and is upset because they don't understand.

Predictions: 14 of 14 Pending   |   Tied for 1st with 590 others

Usman vs. Masvidal II
Kamaru Usman, TKO, R5
I personally think this fight will be very striking-heavy despite Usman being able to just wrestle and coast to a win. I think he's gaining more confidence in his striking and he'll use a smarter approach/gameplan to win. Jorge is from ATT and they have great preparation, and combined with his experience and skill-set this is no walk in the park, but context matters and Usman is in his peak prime. I think the only way he ****s this up is if he makes a big mistake where Jorge's experience will allow him to capitalize. Anyways Usman KO, 5th round probably like a left straight off of a right hook or something basic

Zhang vs. Namajunas
Weili Zhang, DEC
Rose struggles with power and pressure. If she can't get this fight on the ground I think she gets rocked bad and Zhang takes over. The footwork and speed of Rose is very good, but I just don't know if she can keep it up for 25 minutes against someone who can eat every shot and is willing to just to return a big bomb. I hope Rose wins but trying to "analyze" this I think the power coming back at her will be way too much to handle over 5 whole rounds.

Why not just make Usman-Colby 2?? Way more competitive fight (I had Colby up 3-1) and at least Colby is coming off a win
