Predictions: 6 of 12 Winners, 1 Perfect, 325 Points   |   Tied for 2776th

Rojo vs. Croom
Marcelo Rojo, DEC
This is gonna be a one sided match with Rojo pushing the pace with significant strikes and takedowns. Should cruise to an easy decision.

Edwards vs. Fairn
Joselyne Edwards, DEC
Edwards is gonna pick apart Fairn for a very one sided decision or a Round 2 TKO. There’s gonna be a 10-8 in there though.

For anyone who doesn't know: 
You should not be cheering on Muradov.

Dude used to do g** p****graphy, and has also been denounced for his behaviours in the Czech Republic.

I honestly like Muradov more and respect that he's gay and he doesn't have that as his big marketing point because I don't care about the  politics, all I care about is if a man can fight and Muradov can fight. Rembober the way the UFC was promoting the Angela Hill main event, Every promo was how Angella Hill was a black women, Same thing, I want to hear more about Angella Hill fighting style and personalty, Not about social politic. And I like Angella Hill

The only thing Muradov did was have nude photo shoots and jacked videos on a gay erotic entertainment site. From that kind of gay for pay to traditional male modeling there is not much difference, most of the subscribers to magazines like Playgirl or some other female entertainment magazines (where they show semi-naked men) are usually gay men (above 75% of the subscribers).

Let's just take as an anecdotal fact that the same fighter who was Knocked Out by Chimaev in 17 seconds, is probably also knocked out in the first round by a Muslim man who was in the gay **** industry (which is not really wrong, but yes for sure they say this to Khamzat Chimaev or Ramzan Kadyrov will take it very badly hahah)

What a main event, Two of the most skilled 145ers outside of the top 5 going at it. Leaning Barboza here who should be undefeated in the weight class and has experience against much better opponents.

I think Giga kinda hard to read skill wise, As on one hand he did beat Cub Swanson in under a minute, But on the other hand, Its 2021 Cub Swanson, So it hard to get stock on that win, It kinda like how Kevin Holland knocking out Jacure from bottom last year, And both guy kinda fought no one special before the old guy they beat is also very simular 

And this is not ****ting on Giga skills, All I'm saying is that it's hard to tell how good he is, He could easly be a bust, Or be real good, Who know and Barbosa is going to tell us that, Because Barbosa going to be a tough fight for most people in the division who not Holoway or Volkonoski. So real exited for this fight to see.

Edit: Leaning Giga
