Im super stoked for next week...
Hope Porier gets it done again, I think he can finish the Irish lad again if it goes past R2
Im biased as ive been around Porier here in New Orleans at Theo Vons comedy show  and he was super cool.

Wonderbread should keep the distance and stay on the feet enough to pick apart Burns..i also like the OVER

Its O malleys fight to lose so going with him pretty confidently.

Maia seems like a good parlay piece, or the Overs on the  2 women fights

I been having the toughest time with Driscus vs giles. I WANT Giles to win as he been making me money lately.



I have Topuria as a parlay piece more than once.. say what you will

I will give 2 parlay i have - Topuria, O malley, and Pereira 
and Zhumagulov, tuvasa, and wonderbread
lets get it

"Lets go!!!!!!!!!!!"

Hall couldn’t get a sub on Elkins I doubt he gets one on Topuria, there’s no telling though and I’d definitely be mind f**ked cause I’m going “Top heavy”

Poirier vs. McGregor III
Dustin Poirier, TKO, R4
Don't know if Conor is still 100% in the fighting game. Think the better cardio will win this fight for Dustin.

Predictions: 9 of 12 Winners, 3 Perfect, 585 Points   |   Tied for 971st

Poirier vs. McGregor III
Dustin Poirier, TKO, R3
Dustin fought the perfect fight for Conor the last time out with calf kicks and takedown, And Conor was out cold so I don't think that good as Dustin still hits hard. Cant be ass to right more as I did a detaled brackdown on page 8 with took me a while to right

Burns vs. Thompson
Gilbert Burns, TKO, R2
Think Burns is gonna sleep Wonderboy just because I don't think the human race derseve nice thing like Wonderboy title shot .Burns did drop Usman who never got dropped before while Wonderboy does get droppeb a lot and ko'd by Pettis of all people. Not confendent as Wonderboy usually does well agaist agressive opponent and Burn is not going play the throw 2 strikes per round game like Woodly or Till

Tuivasa vs. Hardy
Tai Tuivasa, TKO, R2
I find it weird how **** of an athlete Hardy is, Dude has no power and no cardio, How was he good at NFL???. But dude is underated as a technical fighter and is better then Tai at that. I just see Tai knocking out Greg because of power and cardio.

Aldana vs. Kunitskaya
Yana Kunitskaya, DEC
All of Aldena fight cred is because of a flucky win over Ketlen Veira, Beside that she was losing a fight to Betch Corria, Should of lost to Lucie Pudilova and beat Vanesa Melo, Big ******* whoop. And she got destroyed by Holly Holms. I don't know what I think about Kuniskya but she was outstricking Aspen Ladd before getting slept bad

O'Malley vs. Moutinho
Sean O'Malley, TKO, R1
Sean O'Malley is fight a guy who looks a divison smaller then O'Malley, is 9-4 and got knockout by a 15-12 guy. This fight shouldn't be happening and the UFC and the commission should be a ashmamed of themselve for making this fight and its just delaying the inevable of O'malley getting smashed by someone good

Griffin vs. Condit
Carlos Condit, DEC
Condit is a lengend and that not good as Legend in MMA mean you use to be good and now you're not, As have anyone call Usman, Izzy or even Holloway legends yet. And fighter who had been passed it has been bad in 2021 but they did make a resurgence with Anderson Silva, Gleeson Tibau and Matt Brown winning last week. I quite like Condit if he not entirely shot because I don't think highly of Max Griffan

Price vs. Pereira
Niko Price, TKO, R2
Niko Price should be favourite as he quite good, I think people are down on him because he technically has a draw to Cowboy, But man Price did **** up Cowboy if you watch the fight. And If you want to play that game Pereira did technically loss to Diego Sancez. Niko look real good agaist Vicente and I had him up 2 before getting his eyes shut by something flukey by Vicente. And that Vicente Luque who a top 5 fighter

Du Plessis vs. Giles
Dricus Du Plessis, SUB, R2
Giles wins aren't impresive, He beat a welterweight on 1 day notice and even then the judges robbed Krause, They gave Giles a round where Krause had his back for 4 an a half minute. Beat Bevon Lewis who I don't think won a UFC fight and Roman Dolize who nothing special. Compare to Dricus who beat Roberto ******* Soldic. Case close

Hall vs. Topuria
Ilia Topuria, TKO, R2
Ryan Hall last 3 fight were to guys who walk into the octogon in walker and has senior Disconts and only fight when Haileys comet is around. Iliila is a beast and I think he gonna hurt the overated Hall on the feet and Topuria is a black belt in Jiu-jitsu

Maia vs. Eye
Jennifer Maia, DEC
Jessica Eye got ****** up by Joanne Calderwood who Maia sub in under 3 minute. And Calderwood only wins are a split over Andrea Lee, And Ariene Lipski. While Maia took a round off Valintina and was a relatively close fight

Akhmedov vs. Tavares
Brad Tavares, DEC
Brad Taveres have great Takedown Defence and Omari is a wresler with bad cardio. Should be an easy 29-28

Zhumagulov vs. Rivera
Zhalgas Zhumagulov, DEC
Faiding Jerome but Zhalgas is on a 2 fight lossing streak so who knows

Amedovski vs. Hu
Yaozong Hu, TKO, R2
84% of people picking a guy who lasted 14 seconds with John Phillips LOL LOL LOL hahaha morons. I'm joking as Yaozong is also not good on paper lossing to Rashad Coulter and Cyrul Asker. But honesly I see more upside on Hu as he is only young at 26, Move to a good gym in Tiger Muay Thai and is also going down 2 weightclass from heavyweight.

Poirier should’ve took the title fight. Now instead he loses a trilogy fight, and his chance at a title.

Burns vs. Thompson
Gilbert Burns, TKO, R3
Gilbert’s gotta catch him, or wonderboy’s gonna pick him apart from range. I see burns w/ a late shot to stun Thompson.

Tuivasa vs. Hardy
Tai Tuivasa, TKO, R2
Hardy starts strong, then falls apart, eventually KO’d.

Aldana vs. Kunitskaya
Irene Aldana, DEC
Aldana makes up for her last fight, puts on a 3 round display w/ her hands.

O'Malley vs. Moutinho
Sean O'Malley, TKO, R2
When’s O’Malley gonna take a challenging fight? Dude’s a joke.

Amedovski vs. Hu
Yaozong Hu, DEC
what we've seen from both guys in the ufc so far just isn't enough. Amedovski will look to brawl but i think Hu being younger and possibly taking the time off he's had can really benefit his skills. he's going to be much bigger here and he can utilise his legs kicks and get the decision here

Burns vs. Thompson
Thompson, DEC
What a phenomenal matchup in the co-main. I see Gilbert taking him down and controlling him for some time in rd 2 or 3, but Wonderboy outpoints and frustrates Gilbert on the feet enough to get the split decision. Gilbert is gonna come out firing on all cylinders tho.


Price vs. Pereira
Pereira, TKO, R2
This one is gonna be fun.

But when I revisited the Raoni Barcelos vs. Timur Valiev
I was once again convinced that negotiated battles exist
I don’t understand why Barcelos sold his fight?

I don’t really hold Thompson to that loss vs Pettis, he was piecing Pettis up big time, had his face busted up early, Pettis just happened to catch Thompson off guard with that flying hook. Had that not happened Pettis would’ve lost that fight by a landslide
