I'd try and swap out Park for someone else TBH. He's a lottery play for real because Tafun is such a thick ***** with such a strong base and hip balance that he's very unlikely to get it to the mat. That leaves a striking bettle and he's likely to get merked IMO.

Duck, you are one of the funniest guys on this board.  I love your fight analysis for this one:

Nchukwi vs. Park
Jun Yong Park, DEC
I really want to pick Nchukwi as I don't really like Park as dude is the weakest fighter I ever seen. Dude landed about 360 strikes and John Phillps did more damage with the 3 that he landed. And dude is 90 kg + men so he should hurt fighter with his shots as even 99% of Women fighter hit harder then him. Nchuckwi hits really hard so i get why he favourte . But dude 5-0 so he greener then green and I can see him destoying Park then gassing out and lossing the next 2 rounds

You always give me a chuckle my friend :)

Garbage main event. Neither is a relevant fighter, all of the fighters on the main card are more relevant than these two ladies. Should have been Diego, man deserves it more than almost anyone in the UFC considering all the bad beats he's taken and he's only lost to Dustin Poirier and Beniel Dariush. That said the rest of the card is pretty solid. I like every fight on the main event, even Magney's fight cause I think Geoff will push him around enough to force Magney's surprisingly decent outboxing.

Nchukwi vs. Park
Tafon Nchukwi, DEC
I think anyone hyping the value in Jun Yong Park is unfamiliar with Tafon's previous fights against wrestlers. Dude is just biologically wrestling kryptonite, William Knight tried to get him down and failed when they fought at 205 lbs. I doubt Jun is gonna get it done either, and if Tafon hadn't blasted just shy of 200 strikes and stuffed 4 takedowns in his last fight I might think the value was due to his suspect cardio, but it really isn't all that suspect. Sure he fades a bit, but no more or less than any other middleweight I can think of (certainly better than Hawes a few slots up on this card). Jun is not a bad fighter and is very strategically minded, I'd rate him against a good number of people but this is an ill advised match up. Tafon will be fighting on of his first fights ever with a reach, height, and size advantage and I expect him to unintentionally bully the undersized middleweight. I'll give Jun his due and slot this as a decision for now, but I don't see how Jun snags this one away as his takedowns aren't all that exceptional, he just had a dream matchup in his last fight. He looked significantly more average against Fluffy and Barriault. In the striking realm Tafon almost doubles up the output of Park and has better defensive and offensive land %s. I'll probably be playing Tafon straight.

Hawes vs. Daukaus
Kyle Daukaus, SUB, R3
Kyle Daukaus is just about a year of striking training away from being a top 10 fighter in my eyes, and this is a great matchup to see where those holes in his game are at because Hawes has good wrestling and throws hammers... for a round. In that first round Daukaus will likely be forced to stand up with Hawes and weather the storm, his ability to do this will speak towards his future in the UFC. Having faced two exceptional grapplers in his first two UFC fights, transitioning to fighting a grapple boxer will be an interesting peak into Daukaus's repertoire. Stephen Regman was a good striking test, but he lacked the wrestling capabilities and stature that Hawes has. Here is a good fight to live bet, if Daukaus gets his ass beat but makes it to the stool in the first round, pump a few units on him to win. Phil "Megatron" Hawes gases worse than if you made his nickname run on a singular generic brand triple AAA battery. I have no doubt that Daukaus wins this fight if he survives the first because of how resilient he is in the later rounds, just harken back to his fight with Brendan Allen (who I think is a better striker than Hawes in all honesty, he's just not as comfortable using it), because Daukaus pulled all the stops in that third round and earned a fan from me for it. I'll be putting a bet on Daukaus 2 chancer: Daukaus to win by Sub/Dec.

Amanda Ribas, SUB, R2
I’m a big Amanda Ribas fan. This is a huge fight for her to rebound off her last outing. I could easily see this one go the distance, but my feeing is Amanda subs Angela, late rd 1 or rd 2.

Hawes lost his last fight I don’t care what anyone says. With that out the way he also isn’t good at all and Daukaus is the much better mma fighter. Easy math.

I do worry about Small Daukaus' ability to weather the storm he's gonna face in the first two rounds. Has he been hit like that before?

I'm with Tieoken, Diego Ferreira pushed Dariush to the brink, and comes in here as a +160 underdog? That seems... wrong?

@Erison I'm going to disagree with both of you on that one. I don't think Gillespie is worth his price but I still definitely favor him to win. The bull case for Ferriera is that Gregor hasn't fought in a decent amount of time and he got starched badly in his last one.

But Gregor is an insane wrestling control threat. Really if he hadn't tried to compete on the feet with a better striker he'd have dominated Lee. This dude's ability to wet blanket people is off the chain and Ferriera definitely will never have experienced anything like it.

I have Ferriera in a couple of parlays but I'm not confident enough to straight bet him.

If Duakaus is smart he's just going to try and grapple from the get-go. Risky fight betting-wise. I think Hawes is incredibly overhyped but he's definitely no joke.

After digging around in Park's  record, I've flipped on that fight a bit. I think he does have a decent chance of winning by Dec and is worth his price. He's never been KO'ed and has fought some big punchers who outsize him.
