I think it's because MMA fans have been getting spoiled recently with ultra STACKED cards. This card has a couple fan favorites aka TKZ/Chito and some good prospects aka Casey O'Neill/Matt Semelsberger/Khaos Williams, but it's still a step-down from the past few 
events this year imo.

You understand that Cocaine not only makes you not feel pain but gives you incredible stamina.... 

Now put that into a professional champion boxer -- vs someone on Steroids who just wants to rage aka Vitor Belfort.  

I will pick Cocaine De La Hoya all day

@FireFist45

The drawback of course is that Cocaine completely ****s up your senses and thinking. It will give you enhanced physical attributes but you'd have the fight IQ of a beached whale with a bunged up blowhole.

@erison I always love watching Vera and TKZ fight, I think Vera/Grant would make a better co-main. Some of the card layout is kind of surprising, I think Khaos Williams should be on the main card instead of Turman/Silva.

Prediction Comments

Predictions: 4 of 12 Winners, 2 Perfect, 290 Points   |   Tied for 2755th

Turman vs. Silva
Bruno Silva, TKO, R1
Blindado Silva earned his pass to the UFC after knocking out legendary Russian striker Alexander Shlemenko and promise Artem Frolov inside M-1 Global. After that he was suspended for 2 years by USADA before making his debut (which may cast doubt on his KO power and his performance from this suspension). On his side, Turman has a good effectiveness with his wrestling and once on the ground he could exploit Silva's weakness (Silva has been submitted in 5 of his 6 defeats). But seeing being knocked out by Dirte Sanchez (a fighter characterized by his wrestling and not by great KO power) is a bad indication if we take into account the fact that Silva is known to be a great puncher. Turman has a great chance of finishing if he manages to get Silva down, but I think Silva can finish the fight by KO in the first round.

Lima vs. Brown
Matt Brown, TKO, R1
To anyone who thinks that Matt Brown is the most "chinny" in the matchup, I recommend taking a little look at Dhiego Lima's first run in the UFC (1-3 with 3 losses by first round KO). While Lima knocked out a good puncher like Laprise and outscored a dangerous Hayder Hassan by decision, Belal Muhammad hurts Dhiego Lima in the second round of their fight (and Belal is not a particularly powerful striker). For his part, Matt Brown has had many wars and this has reduced his resistance, in one of his last fights he managed to put Miguel Baeza in trouble (a fighter who despite losing his last fight, has proven to be a future top 10). Lima is primarily a striker so we can expect it to be a mostly standing fight, but despite what many think I think Brown has enough to do the same with Eddie Gordon, Tim Means, Jingliang Li and Jason Jackson ( on Titan FC): knock out Dhiego Lima in the first round.

Jung vs. Ige
Dan Ige, TKO, R2
It is a very difficult fight to predict, for its part the Korean Zombie prior to 2020 came on a streak of 2 victories with surprising finishes in the first round against Renato Moicano and Frankie Edgar this before his defeat against Brian Ortega (fight where he was saw at times turned off and without the ability to make adjustments). For his part, I think Ige is an underrated fighter, I always had as a reference his defeat against Julio Arce, whom I consider a good fighter (but from my point of view, Arce is a 135 since in this category he had more defenses than his championship in ROC and this year Arce decided to return to fight at Bantamweight). He entered the top after his victories against Danny Henry, Kevin Aguilar and Mirsad Bektic and personally I thought that against Barboza it would be his ceiling with respect to the level of competition, but after a first round where Edson almost finished him Ige returned with a performance constant in the next 2 rounds (personally I think that despite the closeness, the winner should have been Barboza for his first two rounds). Against Kattar it was a learning loss and against Gavin Tucker he displayed excellent precision that led to a KO in 22 seconds. I think this fight will most likely end before reaching the decision, mainly due to the striking style of the Korean Zombie where his fight against Dennis Bermudez is the best way to explain it: Jung has a brutal KO power, but is very exposed to fast hands. and counters. The result could be completely reversed, but I think that with his precision Ige can catch The Korean Zombie at the beginning of the second round (when the first round is studio at the beginning of the second round it is usually where the pace of Fight).
