Honestly people who say the entire division is ducking Ryan Hall is some of the dumbest people alive. Do people actually believe that ****, An entire division or at lest a certain portion of a division is ducking anyone is laughable, And a dude who best win are against old men who are past it, And the same guy who pulls out when he fight someone who doesn't live in a retirement home and had 3 fight in 6 year .Yeah everyone ducking that guy, I think saying 1 or even 2 person is usually  not true as they a fighters, Or they at lest not because they scared to get hurt. For example Colby and Jorge are ducking Edward because Edwards does nothing for intrest in the fight 

I honesly hope Topiera mauls Hall just to not hear from his mouth breathing fanbase, I think they might be more ******** then the Diaz or McGregor fan base, And that saying something.

What are you on about? There are not a lot of Hall fans, and if anything how would there be when he hasn't fought?

Saul Rogers (who was a BJJ Blue Belt at the time of their fight at TUF) dismantled Ryan Hall's leg-lock strategy. To defeat Ryan Hall you have to be careful with the imanari rolls, 50-50 positions and also if you try to pull guard. His uncommon striking of the green and red zones can be fought with jabs and throwing low low kicks (he connects in the final part of the shin before the foot). Brian Ortega, The Korean Zombie, Zabit Magomedsharipov, Dan Ige are fighters with a high level of grappling and good striking. It would be silly to think that they avoid fighting Ryan Hall because you have the credentials to beat him easily. 

Look how relatively easy it was for Alex Caceres to defeat Chase Hooper, although Hall has much more experience and training than Hooper (and it should be noted that Hall is not physically weak as Hooper), but his strategies are almost the same to use mostly kicks in the striking and they use leg locks on the ground. Hall's Grappling gained much fame for heel hooking over BJ Penn, the same BJ Penn who was knocked out in a bar fight at that point in his career but was still surprising to many by BJ Penn's rank in BJJ (5th Degree Black Belt under Dede Pederneiras) and that Penn in 2000 was a BJJ world champion. But Johnny Nunez, Lobov has zero submissions defense (and even so the Russian managed to survive until the decision). Maynard was already done and not counting the fights against Edgar most of him were based on taking down his opponents (which he obviously wouldn't do against a leg locker). His rare standing strategy did work against Darren Elkins who he even nearly knocked out 3 times, but it is unlikely that he would repeat a performance against someone at the top.

In conclusion Rousimar Phalares, Rani Yayha, Joe Soto, Frank Mir and many other leg lockers have succumbed to fighters with knowledge in defending this class of submissions.
Don't even forget how Leonardo Santos was knocked out by Grant Dawson attempting a heel hook. So Ryan Hall Fans should know that attempting a leg lock or trying to fight on his feet with his style of the green zones for Hall against a Top 10 is even more dangerous for him than for his rivals.

*** is this Yaozong Hu guy? He got into the UFC on the strength of back to back losses with only 3 wins before that? I saw Amedovski and immediately went to pick the other guy cuz he's hot garbage but seriously why is he deserving of such a massive gimme? Amedovski sucks so bad he might still choke here. What a **** tier fight. Can't blame it on short-notice either, this card is 40 days out. I'm so confused. 
Edit because I realized I too hastily assumed Hu's last two losses were pre-UFC because I didn't recognize him at all: OK I see now those L's were in the UFC, but I'm keeping what I wrote because it got my feelings about how bad these two fighters are across.

Predictions: 4 of 12 Winners, 3 Perfect, 325 Points   |   4005th Place

Brady vs. Lee
Kevin Lee, TKO, R3
Sean brady is a problem and Im surprised kevin lee has the balls to debut in welter against him. Brady has the better cardio but both are good wrestlers with the difference being that brady has more heart and is more determined when it comes to taking his opponent down and securing a dominant position. If they have a grappling war lee will most likely gas, go for a desperate takedown and get caught in a submission. With all that being said, Kevin Lee sees holes in bradys game and he fits in them.

Predictions: 7 of 12 Winners, 2 Perfect, 415 Points   |   Tied for 3222nd

Dustin Poirier, Round 4 Sub
Now that the GOAT has retired, Poirier is the best lightweight in the world.  I think he will go more grappling heavy now that McGregor "hAs SolVeD ThE LoW KiCkS".  He will finish Conor again for the money, and we get the two for one of him being able to win the belt finally, and never having to talk about the notorious one ever again.

lol at the idea that there's an army of casual Ryan Hall fans. Dude probably gets a lukewarm reception at his own gym. I bet when someone does a coffee run they forget to ask him. If he held a meet and greet at a bar, the bartender would refuse to turn the music down.

I think Samurai Lee will try to swang n bang, get a highlight reel with that head tattoo but sadly I think it'll be bouncing off the floor.

Price vs. Pereira
Niko Price, TKO, R1
Still don't see the appeal to Pereira

Griffin vs. Condit
Carlos Condit, TKO, R3
Condit should not be fightin guys like Max, but I will pick him just because, **** it
