Costa vs. Cannonier
Jared Cannonier, TKO, R2
At the end of the day, Jared will win because he is just that much more technical and he has more power. Costa is a volume KO artist and all Jared needs is one. Costa is gonna get his leg chopped and it’s gonna be back and forth. But Jared will set up shots and win.

@Joshjeffords Sounds like you need to watch more fights... about Guida/Madsen though, I actually think it could be a tough match up for Madsen and I'm interested to see how he handles it. It's a very interesting match up on both ends. Madsen is an Olympic Silver medalist in Greco-Roman Wrestling though... seems like you didn't know that. I do think Guida could outwork him and tire him out, Madsen did seem to gas in his last fight towards the end and Guida can really push a pace. This is a good test for Madsen.

Cannonier vs. Gastelum
Kelvin Gastelum, TKO, R4
Cannonier is 37, maybe Gastelum will get his Boomer Slayer mode activated. On a serious note I think Cannonier wins the first 2 and Gastelum the last 3, I think Kelvin has a basic style but it should have the right tools necessary to win on points and survive not getting KO'd by that tank of a man.

Martinez vs. Strader
Mana Martinez, TKO, R1
is this a mis-match? feels like a coin flip kind of fight

Cannonier vs. Gastelum
Jared Cannonier, TKO, R3
Gastelum is a warrior. He's not winning very often, but that is because he's fighting the best of the best of the division, and he's always competitive. But I really think he should go back to welterweight after a serious diet, the guy clearly eats too much junkfood. At middleweight, he's a top 5 at best. At welterweight, he could be a champ.

Knight vs. Cherant
Fabio Cherant, TKO, R2
This could be chaotic, but I'm really not impressed by Knight thus far. Huge power but terrible striking technique, bad cardio, no takedown defense, not a great chin... Cherant isn't a world beater by any means, but he's taller, fast and explosive, and I can see him winning a wild, fun and ugly short fight.

Sherman vs. Porter
Chase Sherman, TKO, R3
Sherman is fun to watch and has good potential to be a top 10 heavyweight for a little while, but I don't see him winning against the top of the division. Wich is fine, not every prospect has to be a champion after all.

Guida vs. Madsen
Mark O. Madsen, DEC
Wow, it's incredible Guida is still competitive at this level at 40 years old... That being said, they're throwing him to a wolf, here.

as a Gastelum nuthugger and having lost 7000€ total on Jared Cannonier in my lifetime. I have absolutely no idea what to make of this main event. This fight is really important for both men and will probably define their careers. Cannonier might eventually challenge for a title and Gastelum might hover around top 3 again. Cannonier survived against Whittaker with a broken hand and I believe he got some valuable experience with a high level opponent. I remember seeing Cannonier get good at his bottom game in 2017-2018 so I don't think it's going to be wrestle******* by Gastelum this time. I'm gonna skip the prediction and just enjoy the fight.

Cannonier vs. Gastelum
Jared Cannonier, DEC
Kelvin deserves a bronze balls trophy for replacing Costa in every fight that he runs away from. He's the better fighter of the twos, but he'll probably lose in a decision and maybe will get cut from UFC.

Pantoja vs. Royval
Alexandre Pantoja, DEC
Fight of the night smell on this one. Pantoja it's a good fighter on the ground and has a decent striking. Same goes to Royval, that has serious skills on the ground. I predict a back and forth battle, with Pantoja getting a split decision victory.

Kelleher vs. Pilarte
Brian Kelleher, TKO, R2
Kelleher it's really a good gatekeeper for his position on the bantamweight division, and I think he's not letting that fool going up in the division. Kelleher, 2nd Round KO.

Sherman vs. Porter
Chase Sherman, TKO, R1
Well, Sherman sucks, and he sucks so much that he was able to lose to an old and washed up Arlovski on his last fight. But Porter sucks much more than Herman, and that's enough to pick Chase for the win. Sherman by KO in the 1st Round.

Guida vs. Madsen
Mark O. Madsen, DEC
I was about to ask myself when this O. Madsen guy was gonna fight again. I mean, he's a good wrestler, but I don't see he going too far on that weigh class, he's 36 years old already and almost lose his last fight to an unknown. For his luck, he's taking a washed Clay Guida, and with a victory over Guida he might get an worldwide atention from the fans. O. Madsen by decision.

Casey vs. Jojua
Liana Jojua, DEC
I don't know how the f-ck Casey is still in the UFC with a 9-9 record, that's beyond my compreension. That might be a good scrap between these two, so I'm going with the younger girl with the better record. Jojua by decision.

Gonna be a good scrap. But bahmondes was getting pieced up by a 5’8 Makdessi, I know Roberts isn’t on the level of makdessi but I can’t imagine how bahmondes does any good against a guy who’s the same size as him. When he’s used to being to bigger guy
