Mas is tougher maybe more power than conmac.
He is at a disadvantage every other way.
I want to see him fight justin but dustin ko him again he will likely retire permanantly.
The only chance either have against usman is if his recent ko win makes him over confident.

Predictions: 10 of 13 Winners, 1 Perfect, 570 Points   |   Tied for 794th

Zhang vs. Namajunas
Weili Zhang, TKO, R4
I think Like every Rose fight, She looks like the best female fighter for about 5 minute then gasses and get piece up for the remanding moment of the fights, Happen in both Andrade fight, And the 2nd Joanna fight witch she should of lost the 3rd, 4th and 5th round,I think Weili is gonna **** her up in the last 3 rounds to get a stoppage, ,As Weili gave Joanna a 3rd silicone Titty on the forehead, and killed Andrade while Rose is gassed it not good. Think the Under on Rose ain't dumb for prop bets

Weidman vs. Hall II
Uriah Hall, TKO, R3
Uriah Hall ain't good beside a cool KO, Dude was getting beated up by a 50 year Anderson Silva for 3 round before the KO and he also got beaten up by Bevon Lewis before the KO, And for a matter of fact, I don't think I ever seen him win fight without a comeback KO, This has one of the most predictble fight ever, Weidmen Is gonna wresle**** him as he alway start well, But in the later round he gonna get slept

Huge fan of Chris Weidman but unfortunately time has passed him by and he is not the same fighter he once was. Weidman will go for the takedown early and Hall will stuff it. Once that happens Weidman will start to gas as he continues shooting for takedowns and will eventually get caught by Hall.

Hall by 2nd RD TKO.

Watching Dan hardy picks podcast, the first 3 Chinese fighters on the card have come from the pi in china, apparently it's like a massive mma college, they were hand picked from the Chinese league's and put through the pi system there, zu rhong 17-3 looks good, then you look who he recently beat and 3 of his last 5 opponents were 9-7 , 0-4 and 10-9
