Reyes vs. Procházka
Dominick Reyes, TKO, R1
I think Dom could kill the hype.

Swanson vs. Chikadze
Giga Chikadze, DEC
Cub's best days are behind him. Giga should win this.

Cutelaba vs. Jacoby
Dustin Jacoby, TKO, R3
Taking Jacoby simply because if Ion comes strong like always, he's screwed late.

Strickland vs. Jotko
Sean Strickland, DEC
Sean gets this done.

Dvalishvili vs. Stamann
Merab Dvalishvili, DEC
Ugh. I smell a split decision.

Markos vs. Pinheiro
Luana Pinheiro, DEC
Yeah.... Taking Luana, but totally ready to lose if Randa takes this serious.

Kamaka III vs. Brown
TJ Brown, DEC
I think Brown and Krouse can get it done.

Botelho vs. Carolina
Poliana Botelho, TKO, R1
Oof. I don't like how fragile Luana is.

Hughes vs. Lookboonmee
Loma Lookboonmee, TKO, R3
I think Loma does something to involve the doctor.

Bhullar vs. Michailidis
Andreas Michailidis, TKO, R2
KB could be chinny here.....

Sanders vs. Colares
Luke Sanders, DEC
Eh.... I'll take bad fight IQ over lack of finishing instinct.

Chikadze vs Swanson 
Giga Chikadze via decision 

Theres like a hate cult towards giga and I find it funny. I’ve sided with giga in 4/5 fights in the UFC. He’s actually a super technical striker and uses his range super effectively. I’m still weary about his grappling because his takedown defence isn’t great but I think in this matchup Cub will respect his striking and have trouble getting inside and landing the heavy shots on giga. Definitely Chikadzes toughest matchup yet. 

Cutelaba vs Jacoby
Ion Cutelaba via KO rd 2

After watching grishin vs jacoby it was a concern of mine how many times jacoby was hurt & in trouble considering grishin is 36. I lean the younger man with anger management in this matchup because I believe he’s going to let loose knowing jacoby isn’t anywhere near the counter striker Ankalaev is. Ion the muscle meathead knocks out jacoby.

@mmafortuneteller please don't give out anymore "free picks" you tend to be wrong almost always and the fighter then gets released by the UFC shortly after.

Reyes vs. Procházka
Dominick Reyes, TKO, R1
I think there is a lot of recency bias here, shocking I know! Just 12 months ago Reyes "beat" the GOAT and was in the P4P top 15, 1 loss and he's all of a sudden gonna get slept by a guy who's been beating up old guys in Japan????? Prochazka gonna walk onto a straight left/left high kick early

Reyes vs. Procházka
Jiří Procházka, TKO, R1
Unless Reyes catches him with something early since Jiri fights with his chin high, there's only one other way this fight goes.

Swanson vs. Chikadze
Cub Swanson, DEC
Whenever I see Swanson as the underdog it feels like a trap

Cutelaba vs. Jacoby
Ion Cutelaba, TKO, R1
Is Jacoby good now? If he wins this I'm done picking against him

Strickland vs. Jotko
Sean Strickland, TKO, R3
Strickland is on a tear, and Jotko doesn't hit hard enough to deter him from marching him down

Markos vs. Pinheiro
Luana Pinheiro, TKO, R2
Why is a 10-10 fighter in the UFC?

Hughes vs. Lookboonmee
Loma Lookboonmee, TKO, R3
I feel there is going to be a big difference in number of total strikes landed

Reyes vs. Procházka
Jiří Procházka, TKO, R2
This is such a hard fight to call. Jiri is bigger, has more experience, more power, has been way more active, and arguably fought the same level of competition in his wins as Reyes has in his. Obviously Dom's losses to Jan and Bones were to the best 205ers in the world but if you stack Dom and Jiri's wins side by side it's hard to argue that Dom has beaten better competition than Jiri. I see the difference coming down to power and chin. Jiri has more power and a cast iron chin. Jiri is extremely hittable and he relies on that chin WAY more than he should but once he draws you into a brawl he has you right where he wants you and once Jiri hurts you he goes ballistic until the ref pulls him off and stops the fight. It's going to be so hard for Reyes to stay on the outside for 25 minutes, not engage in a brawl at some point and get clipped, and piece Jiri up for 5 rounds so I am picking Jiri by 2nd round KO.

Swanson vs. Chikadze
Cub Swanson, DEC
This is going to be a very interesting fight. Giga has the advantage on the measurables having a 4 inch height and reach advantage, being the younger fighter as well. Cub is the far more experienced fighter though and has fought the far better level of competition so this is going to be a huge step up in competition for Giga. The question will be whether Giga can make this a kickboxing match and manage range or if Swanson can turn it into a brawl and make it a war of a MMA match. I don't think Cub is going to let Giga play his game and kickbox from range. I see Cub getting inside, attempting around 5 takedowns and winning 2 out of three rounds. I think Cub gives Giga a veteran lesson here and proves there isnt too much tread on the tires for Cub to do what he does best.

Cutelaba vs. Jacoby
Ion Cutelaba, SUB, R1
I think Ion is the more well rounded fighter here. Jacoby is a very talented kickboxer and if he can keep it on the feet he definitely has a chance to win a kickboxing match with Ion. What I like about Ion in this match is in his previous UFC experience Ion has shown he is willing to use his wrestling when he is facing a superior kickboxer as evidenced by his 4 of 5 TD's against Rountree in a win and 6 of 7 TDs against Cannonier in a loss. Ion gassed out against Jared and lost it late, however, Jacoby is taking this fight on short notice so I dont see him outlasting Ion which is probably his best path to victory here so I see Ion getting this to the ground and finishing it there. The Hulk by 1st round sub is the pick. There will be violence here my friends.

Hiya all yup that includes you teller hope we got some good ass whoopins tonight!
Personally the Domrey vs Jiri fight is not a gimme for either they both beat smaller lesser fighters.
Before making stupid comments go look dom merked 2 middlewieghts before being uberstriker classed.
Jiri is a ******* madman he does hit hard enough but it is all about pressure and combos from hell with him.
The hooks wont work unless dom has doubled his output and speed the uppercut is a big threat however.
PS losing to king mo in his prime was no blemish he hit hard decent boxing/wrestling.
The Jacoby fight has the heat as Ion was trying to intimidate him stupid idea he will be lobotomized unless he spams takedowns and get a lucky flash ko.
Not been on here much busy at work so thought I'd share with my fellow savages.
