This Santos dude has one hell of a decieving record... at the time of their fights, his opponents had combined record of 25-81... and 15 of the 25 wins were a guy with like 36 losses... *** is this bum doing on DWCS?

This contender series card is stacked… nice little dessert a couple days after UFC 266, which was a ******* belter of a card. Also serves as a sweet appetizer to Johnny Walker vs Thiago Santos this coming Saturday… Watched Daniel Zellhuber a few times fight on Fight Pass, excited to see him under the UFC banner. He’ll get a contract, but he is fighting a guy who’s 12-0. Don’t know much about his opponent.

Surprised to see the vast majority of people choosing Zellhuber, don’t sleep on Almeida he’s pretty good and fought decent competition.

Kuniev vs. Santos
Rizvan Kuniev, TKO, R1
Hopefully we don't all get Jailton Almeida'd.... Rizvan is just better on the feet and shouldn't have a problem keeping it standing. Santos didn't look like he could get somebody with good hips on the ground, neither has he fought anybody who might take him into deep waters.
Rizvan weighing in at the 260's, Santos weighing in at 230's... no way he gets him to the ground.

Sudolski vs. Poterya
Łukasz Sudolski, TKO, R1
Igor's opponents look out of shape, also a wild man on the feet. Lukasz is pretty technical, good jab, good low kick and good takedown defense. Should keep it on the feet for a quick KO.

Gaxhja vs. Duncan
Chris Duncan, TKO, R2
Manuel looked small, but fast. Also gets his hands back to his face a little too slow for my liking. Duncan is pretty thick, think it might be too hard for Gaxhja to get him on the ground and pretty ruthless with the striking.
Also not going with Gaxhja cause he missed weight.

Jeffery vs. Borralho
Aaron Jeffery, TKO, R1
Wanted to fade Jeffery but Caio just doesn't have it on the feet. Unless he catches Jeffery in a deep submission really shouldn't be a problem. Faded all the Canadian's so far 0-2, gonna have to go Canada on this one.

Almeida vs. Zellhuber
Lucas Almeida, SUB, R1
Zellhuber in my opinion is too young, Salvador Izar was giving him work before he jumped the guillotine and got his face beat in. Almeida looked really good on the feet, with really good takedown defense, wonder why a lot of people are going Zellhuber. Hopefully Zellhuber keeps working and we see him back in a few fights. He is super young, give him time!

Sudolski vs. Poterya
Łukasz Sudolski, SUB, R1
Poterya's opponents up until now have been absolute dog**** and he's still lost to two of them. I can't have faith in someone who's crushed 19 cans in a row

Gaxhja vs. Duncan
Chris Duncan, TKO, R1
Again, there's levels to the game and if you don't challenge yourself early you'll get destroyed later.

Almeida vs. Zellhuber
Daniel Zellhuber, TKO, R1
This could just be a UFC prelim opener

Kuniev vs. Santos
Rizvan Kuniev, TKO, R3
Lots of can crushers on this week's card, I hope they get what they deserve.

On a long enough timeline all these guys either did or will loose to Brendan Allen.
