I saw rumors of Nasrudinov vs Jailton Junior and Ange Loose vs Jack Della Madallena on this card. Can anyone confirm?

According to cageside press, Jack Della vs Ange loosa will happen. 
Jailton Junior vs Nasrudin Nasrudinov is heavily rumoured. However just wait until officially announced.
DWCS has some great fights this year by the looks of things.
It's a great fight Junior Vs Nasrudinov.  But only the winner will most likely be picked. Its a shame, as both would be great additions to the UFC.

I'm guessing it's a mistake given that it's the exact same matchup. Mildly annoying that these aren't updated regularly. But the Hadley fight can get cancelled depite that being more recent but the Duraev fight cant get taken off even though we know onow it's happening a week sooner.

Does anyone know why Mo Miller is such a big favorite on here? I mean they both have impressive records, Miller's is against a little better competition too. Is it the size that Lewis will be giving up?

Brzeski vs. Potter
Łukasz Brzeski, TKO, R1
I'd be a little more confident is Brzeski had been active a little more recently, but he appears to be a different class of fighter than Potter.

Almeida vs. Nasrudinov
Nasrudin Nasrudinov, TKO, R2
Almeida looked very green in the hands department on film, telegraphed and ran in with head up for takedowns, do really like his kicks. Nasrudinov is all around good enough to keep it on the feet and punish him with inside boxing.

Miller vs. Lewis
Mo Miller, DEC
Best matchup of the card? Mo Miller looked like a killer in the standup with a LETHAL SPRAWL, Brandon Lewis is a powerhouse and just a well built athlete for his size. Think this one is going to be a treat, def see it going the distance unless Miller proves the size is too much and denies all of Lewis's takedowns. But don't think so as Lewis usually looks a weight class above most his opponents.

Duraev vs. Bittencourt
Albert Duraev, SUB, R1
Pretty straight forward, Duraev unless he gets caught quick.

Brzeski vs. Potter
Łukasz Brzeski, TKO, R2
Brzeski is a CRAZY MAN in that octogon, Potter is a tough guy with GRIT. I just see Brzeski walking Potter down until the KO.

Maddalena vs. Loosa
Jack Della Maddalena, TKO, R1
Def grade the Australian/ New Zealand regional schene so much felt i only needed to watched film on Loosa. He is a wild man with little technique did not impress me and leaves his chin out, tho he has crazy power and strength loving to swarm his opponents.

Jasudavicius vs. Polastri
Julia Polastri, DEC
Polastri's losses impress me the more I look at them. Losing to Elise Reed after what i saw.... nada

Miller vs. Lewis
Mo Miller
Hard to pick a winner. Just going to back Miller because of his strong style. 4 wins out of 5 by KO so trusting him to continue the momentum.

Duraev vs. Bittencourt
Caio Bittencourt, TKO, R3
Going with Bittencourt here. Bittencourt is riding an 8 fight win streak with all his wins coming by finish. Duraev has been knocked out 3 times before.

Maddalena vs. Loosa
Jack Della Maddalena, TKO, R2
Close fight. 6/7 fights by finish for Loosa. Maddalena with the better momentum though. All wins by finish, last 5 fights he won by KO.

Jasudavicius vs. Polastri
Jasmine Jasudavicius, TKO, R3
Jasmine got 3/5 wins by finish. Only lost one fight and has had a fight this year so she might've improved.

Always disappointed his nickname isn't Mo "Problems" Miller. He's a training partner for Stipe and Stipe is really high on Mo's ceiling and capabilities. Mo has a crazy explosive wrestling style, very fan friendly, and I think he gets it done easily in the first or second.
