If anyone is concerned about the event possibly being cancelled the UFC has put up every bout on their website aside from the main event

Marina Rodriguez   vs.   Michelle Waterson

You know, I kind of don't like this fight for Marina. She should rightly be the favorite and I'm picking her to win, but she could definitely drop this one. Rodriguez burns hot and fast. She's utterly terrifying for about 10 minutes but then afterwards this point she really drops off fast. Especially if she's forced to grapple.

Now, I don't think that's highly likely in this bout. Waterson does have grappling but she doesn't have the offensive wrestling of Esparza or even Calvillo.However, I can see Marina getting into deep **** if this fight makes it to the 4th round and onwards. Waterson can take a beating and if she doesn't get a finish early, which I think is likely, then it could get bad for her. That said she'll likely be up bigly before this happens.

Over 3 rounds prop could be value.

Ryan Benoit   vs.   Zarrukh Adashev

I don't like backing Baby-**** Benoit. I really don't. But Adashev is one of the ****tiest fighters I have ever seen and I have no idea what the **** he's doing in UFC. His record is staggeringly awful. Even the Two KO's has came against guys probably found sleeping in the recycling bin out the back of a pub. If Benoit can't beat this dude he needs to **** right off completely.

Mike Trizano   vs.   Ľudovít Klein 


Klein is basically just a really bad ************. What makes him standout is his timing and distance management. He doesn't throw a lot of highly technical ****, he just throws it bread and butter stuff superbly well. He's Very good at stealing/breaking Rhythm. Mike Trizano is a serious dude however and this fight will be more competitive than the line suggests. He's good everywhere and can absorb an utter shellacking. I don't see a finish but I'll take Klein to get it done on points.

Predictions: 3 of 9 Winners, 1 Perfect, 175 Points   |   Tied for 2778th

Ribas vs. Hill
Amanda Ribas, SUB, R1
I like under 2.5 at +180. Ribas far better on ground to get a sub, and she's been KOed twice and coming off a bad ko.

Ferreira vs. Gillespie
Gregor Gillespie, SUB, R3
Gregor chain wrestles and catches him with a sub late when he's getting a little sloppy from fatigue. Not too concerned for the layoff. Probably a good thing to rest your chin after a bad ko. Not confident in the sub but confident in gregor probably a parlay piece

Hawes vs. Daukaus
Kyle Daukaus, SUB, R2
Under 2.5 seems like a nice spot -155. Sorta like the ribas fight way better juicjitsu vs way more power. I lean toward kyle by sub but phil hits hard in that first round for sure.

Greene vs. Rogério de Lima
Marcos Rogério de Lima, SUB, R2
Round 2 starts is interesting -125 probably will get closer to even money as the week goes along.

Predictions: 5 of 9 Winners, 1 Perfect, 290 Points   |   Tied for 1250th

Rodriguez vs. Waterson
Marina Rodriguez, DEC
I’m torn on this one. Rodriguez should win this one and is the rightful favorite but I would not be surprised if Waterson takes over in the later rounds.

Rothwell vs. Lins
Ben Rothwell, TKO, R1
Anything can happen in a heavyweight bout but I’m leaning towards Rothwell here. He has fought the way better competition in the UFC and Lins hasn’t had the best UFC run so far. My only concern is that Rothwell is nearing 40. I think he takes it though.

Ribas vs. Hill
Amanda Ribas, DEC
Ribas was recently knocked out but she’s still better than Hill. I don’t think Hill is bad despite that awful record but Ribas is much better than her.

Magny vs. Neal
Geoff Neal, TKO, R2
Neil Magny is so good, but so is Neal. Neal is going to knock him out.

Ferreira vs. Gillespie
Gregor Gillespie, DEC
The line is wide here but Gillespie should get it done but I also wouldn’t be surprised if Ferreira won. I don’t think Gillespie will submit Ferreira and I think this fight will stay standing for most of it. Ferreira is a live dog here.

Hawes vs. Daukaus
Kyle Daukaus, DEC
Hawes better hope he can knock Daukaus out in round 1 or it’s going to be a very long night for him. I think Daukaus survives and beats Hawes in rounds 2 and 3.

Cerrone vs. Morono
Alex Morono, DEC
I really hope Cerrone wins this and retires but I think Morono takes it. Morono didn’t look that bad against Anthony Pettis in his last fight. I don’t think Morono is great and this fight could go either way but I think he wins a decision.

Benoit vs. Adashev
Ryan Benoit, TKO, R1
This fight isn’t going to last long. Adashev is the definition of a can. I don’t think Benoit is great either but he’s much better than Adashev.

Greene vs. Rogério de Lima
Marcos Rogério de Lima, TKO, R1
Hardy isn’t very good and de Lima is going to knock him out.

Aguilera vs. Harris
Carlston Harris, SUB, R2
This fight is one of the hardest on the card to pick. I’m going to lean Harris just because I think he’s a bit better than Aguilera. If anything, I think Harris submits Aguilera.

Nchukwi vs. Park
Tafon Nchukwi, TKO, R1
Nchukwi looked good against Pickett in his last fight and I think he’s going to knock Park out very early. If this fight gets into the later rounds, Nchukwi will still be ok. Park couldn’t finish John Phillips...that’s all you need to know about Park.

Trizano vs. Klein
Ľudovít Klein, TKO, R1
This line is way too wide and I think Trizano is very good but there are many concerns regarding his time off an coming back to take on a guy like Klein is insane. Trizano has never been knocked out but I think that changes in this fight.

Cerrone vs. Morono
Donald Cerrone, DEC
I really don't see Morono having the tools necessary to beat Cowboy, I think Moronos only success against Pettis was offensive grappling but Cowboy is more dangerous off his back imo.

Damn, it's really a shame about the main event. Some of the fights on this card deserve attention.

Rothwell vs Lins is a great scrap, interested in finding out how Rothwell does coming back from such a long layoff and how Lins could recover from such a flashy KO. 

Magny vs Neil is great as well, both guys always show heart and always put up a good fight.

Hawes vs Daukaus is a matchup of two exciting prospects in a division which needs up and comers more than ever.

Really excited for Carlston Harris' debut, I hope the guy can make good on it. I would love to see him go far in the UFC, despite his age.

Nchukwi and Klein are two absolute killers, and I hope both can get the win here.

I wish I wasn't saying this, but I think even Morono will still be a tough fight for cerrone at this point in his career, I'm just glad they didn't give him Kevin holland, he would have taken about 20 years off his life, 

Does anyone else think cerrone should retire?

If you ignore their names and just give it the eye test, right now, I think Morono looks like the better fighter.

Cowboy looked really old against Niko Price...and he was getting rocked until Niko gassed out.

Cowboy was on the first UFC card I ever watched I'll always be a fan...especially at that press conference where he said he was gonna bend Connor over and knock the lucky charms out of him...

I gotta agree with Erison though Morono looks like the fresher guy.

Yeah I think morono should be the favourite and not the underdog like the bookies are saying, and going back to the niko price fight, it was a draw and then non contest because of a positive test for weed for niko, but Niko did win that fight too if you watch it back, so cerrone has lost 5 in a row if you think price won their fight which many people do, think it's time for him to call it a day, he looks old and weathered in his recent fights

Ferreira vs Gillespie is a very high chance for a finish. At odds 2.38 (+138) for the fight to not go the distance, there is real value here. Wagering 9 units on this prop outcome.

I think everyone putting to much faith in Moreno to “old yeller” Cowboy. Dude clearly lost to Pettis like 6 month ago and everyone mentioning the Niko Price, but everyone forget Niko knockout Moreno cold. And Cerrone fought price and didn’t lose. The odds are accurate 

Edit: You can talk about Cerrone recent record being like 4-8-1 , But Moreno would go like 0-13 agaist the people Cowboy been fighting in that span

Why is Maurice Green and Marcos Rogério de Lima on the main card? I'm sorry but a majority of the prelim fights are much more interesting than this fight.

Cerrone vs. Morono
Alex Morono, DEC
Surprised he is the underdog. 5 fight lose streak, getting old, was getting a tee bat for his going out fight with sanchez. He's been public about not feeling it as much as he used to, if he shows up as good as he can be maybe he can finish moroni. I don't see morono finishing cowboy. Alex is +125 now if money comes in on cowboy I might take a shot at +140-150
