O'Malley vs. Smolka
Sean O'Malley, TKO, R1
It is the return of Sean '' Michael Venom Page '' O'Malley, Smolka had a decent run in the flyweight until he was hit by Brandon Moreno (that was the debut of the current title challenger in his step that ended 3-2 before to return in 2019). After that loss Smolka had a 0-4 flyweight streak and added to his current pace in the UFC he has an "impressive" 3-6 record in his last 9 fights in the UFC. Smolka is not even a Top 25 in the category since at bantamweight he has no height or reach advantage. The funny thing is that with Nathaniel Wood, Tony Graverly, Merab Dvalalishvili, Dominick Cruz, Pedro Munhoz available to fight Sean O'Malley was scheduled to fight "the fearsome" Louis Smolka who was a loss from being cut from the UFC. Regarding my prediction I am sure that Sean O'Malley will have no problem knocking out Smolka in the first half of the first round, a Smolka who was knocked down 3 times in the first round by a Matheus Nicolau that despite having good striking It is not characterized by its KO power.

The funniest thing of all is that once O'Malley gets the Knockout, he's going to flex in the Octagon and he will say in the post-fight interview that he is the greatest of all time and that if the UFC scheduled him against Henry Cejudo, Cody Garbrandt or Jose Aldo would do the same to them (when clearly fighting Smolka is a missmatch in their favor). That attitude of celebrating missmatches victories as if they were world title fights reminds me of people who get overjoyed with "surprise gifts" that they actually send themselves (under the pseudonym "anonymous gift").

Dustin Poirier   vs.   Conor McGregor 


I'll preface this by saying Dustin is definitely the value side here @+105. But he's in no way free money, and this is basically a pickem..but I lean Connor.


The thing is, Conor Mcgregor was winning that fight until Dustin adapted and started hammering that low kick. It was, absolutely, 100% Conor's  destroyed leg that led him to losing that fight, and had it not happened, I am very sure he would have won by KO/TKO. Watch the first round. Conor was landing better and harder, was dominating  the clinch, and his signature left was breaking Dustin's guard. He did have Poirier hurt. I have watched this many times over thus far, and I'm very confident in this analysis. 


Round 1 is how that fight plays out when Conor's lead leg isn't wrecked. Can Dustin pull the same trick twice? I doubt it. Say what you want about Conor, but Kavanaugh is a very high quality coach. He'll have a contingency plan moving forward. Surely.


I'm going take Mcgregor in this one--and hate doing it, because I hate him with a passion. If he does win he'll get literally any fight he wants, again, not having earned it. Never wanted Dustin to win more. And he does have a solid shot of doing it. But my spidey sense is telling me that doesn't happen, sadly.


Mcgregor, KO/TKO R2.

They are feeding O'Malley hand picked opponents and it couldn't be more obvious, one he faces a strong nosed wrestler who has kicks and punches in his arsenal, he will fall again. He is not going to be champion.

Casual dont care. They will think Omalley is a  superstar because he finish 5 hand picked guy in a row and then they will watch the PPV when he get smashed hard again.
