Whitmire vs. Goldy
Hannah Goldy, DEC
This one of those fights where it is a complete toss up, just think Goldy edges it here with her activity and constant movement. Whitmire is a bit stationary on the feet and I don't think she'll get this fight to the ground, think Goldy might be a bit too strong for her. Not confident in this pick at all but I think Goldy can just out point Whitmire

Montel Jackson is a massive favorite at (-630)

Really like Jackson in this match up too, but not enough to take him at (-630)

Yeah Jackson was a great parlay piece at -400, but it just keeps climbing. 

Getting +110 on both Zhu Rong and Pannie Kianzad. Added Anthony Smith for a three leg +600 parlay. Worth a look.

Although Montel is a massive favourite, I think it’s justified JP Buys just isn’t UFC level in my opinion especially at bantamweight. 5 inch height and 8.5 inch reach disadvantage for this fight, gonna parley montel and Harris at +140

How does a Joaquin Buckley, Devin Clark and Anthony Smith parlay sound?  

I don't think Ryan Spann can hang with the upper echelon of the division.  He made some amateur-esque mistakes against Johnny Walker and I feel he will do the same with Smith who will capitalize on it.  

Anthony Smith is the gatekeeper of LHW much like Derek Brunson is the gatekeeper at MW.

I like Smith and Buckley, but Devin Clark would scare me. Both he and Ion are super inconsistent with confusing ceilings. That's a stay away fight IMO.

Predictions: 10 of 14 Winners, 1 Perfect, 570 Points   |   Tied for 794th

Smith vs. Spann
Anthony Smith, SUB, R3
Anthony Smith is an amazing gatekeeper. I can see a path to victory for Spann but it will have to be an early knockout. Spann is gonna gas out and Smith will sub him.

Cutelaba vs. Clark
Ion Cutelaba, TKO, R1
Clark will try to wrestle with Cutelaba but that will be a mistake because Ion has great wrestling as well. Clark is an awful striker and is very hittable. Ion is gonna stuff the takedowns and then finish Clark with a punch.

Motta vs. VanCamp
Nikolas Motta, TKO, R1
Motta hits like a truck. I think VanCamp is gonna gas out and Motta will finish him.

Böhm vs. Lipski
Ariane Lipski, DEC
Lipski has fought the way tougher competition so far and I don’t think Bohm is that good. I’m not saying Lipski is good but she should be able to handle herself here.

Giagos vs. Tsarukyan
Arman Tsarukyan, DEC
This line is out of control but I agree with it. Giagos is good but Tsarukyan does everything better.

Buckley vs. Arroyo
Joaquin Buckley, TKO, R1
Both guys aren’t that good but wow does Arroyo suck. Arroyo got mauled for 15 minutes by Deron Winn. That’s embarrassing.

Nchukwi vs. Rodriguez
Mike Rodriguez, TKO, R1
Nchukwi has crazy power but he has very slow movement. Rodriguez should be able to stay on the outside and pick him apart until he lands that one huge knockout punch.

Kianzad vs. Pennington
Pannie Kianzad, DEC
Pannie is moving up and I wouldn’t be shocked to see her fight for a title very soon if she can pass the test here against a very though Pennington.

Maness vs. Gravely
Tony Gravely, DEC
Nate Maness is very good but I can’t believe how good Tony Gravely is. Gravely is so underrated and he should be able to win this but I wouldn’t be shocked to see Maness win.

Bush vs. Rong
Dakota Bush, DEC
Rong will be very good in the future but right now I’d say Bush is better. Bush will just wrestle him and win a decision.

Jackson vs. Buys
Montel Jackson, TKO, R1
Night night Buys. Absolute mismatch.

Blanchfield vs. Alpar
Erin Blanchfield, TKO, R2
Ground and pound win for Blanchfield. She’s the real deal. Alpar isn’t UFC caliber at all.

Kasanganay vs. Harris
Carlston Harris, DEC
I don’t see either guy getting submitted and I’m very high on Impa but I have to lean Harris here. Harris has unbelievable cardio.

Lopez vs. Alateng
Heili Alateng, DEC
Alateng is better but that’s not saying much. You can argue both guys aren’t UFC caliber. Should be a good scrap though.

Whitmire vs. Goldy
Hannah Goldy, DEC
Goldy wins this in a close fight. Whitmire will probably get cut if she loses this one.

I got Jackson at over -500 and added him to a bunch of parlays. The price is high but Buys is so bad. I can’t believe his management let him take this fight, especially on short notice.

Smith vs. Spann
Ryan Spann, TKO, R1
this is so ******* 50/50 for me. I'm confident Smith wins if it reaches the later parts of the fight though (mid R2 and later)

Cutelaba vs. Clark
Devin Clark, DEC
I only picked Clark with the thought that he survives the first after making it grindy. Will most likely be wrong here but I love a good dog pick.

Motta vs. VanCamp
Nikolas Motta, TKO, R2
Motta's fight on DWCS is a must watch, especially if you're looking for a prospect to keep your eye on. Vancamp is a WW moving down so maybe he uses his size to win, who knows.

Böhm vs. Lipski
Mandy Böhm, SUB, R2
Bohm is a great female FLW prospect

Giagos vs. Tsarukyan
Arman Tsarukyan, DEC
Sick grappling match is all that comes to mind when I think of this fight.

Buckley vs. Arroyo
Joaquin Buckley, TKO, R1
All I have to say is I edited my pick. My original prediction was Arroyo by DEC. If this Buckley KO 1 is wrong, I have that excuse to rely on

Nchukwi vs. Rodriguez
Tafon Nchukwi, TKO, R1
Also 50/50, both guys have enough KO power to finish each other. Rod is longer but probably doesn't have a better chin than Tafon

Maness vs. Gravely
Tony Gravely, TKO, R3
50/50 but going with Gravely G&P TKO (yes ik Maness has great grappling, I just think that Gravely constant wrestling will gas him out eventually)

Jackson vs. Buys
Montel Jackson, TKO, R1
Obvious pick. Maybe Jackson by TKO2 is also possible though

Kasanganay vs. Harris
Impa Kasanganay, TKO, R2
Very 50/50 for me. However I got Impa by either TKO2 or Guillotine after badly rocking Harris

Buckley, so explosive, and fast.

Nchukwi vs. Rodriguez
Mike Rodriguez
Mike... Big guy. Goes to a good gym. Has been fighting longer.

Kianzad vs. Pennington
Raquel Pennington
Rocky has fought gals tougher than Pannie.

Maness vs. Gravely
Nate Maness
Tony goes to the better gym, and has lots of experience in MMA, but Maness has the better wins.

Bush vs. Rong
Zhu Rong
I hope I'm not rong about this.

Jackson vs. Buys
Montel Jackson
Buys ain't bad, but Jackson is bigger, has been in the UFC longer.

Blanchfield vs. Alpar
Sarah Alpar
Alpar has twice the career of Blanchfield.

Kasanganay vs. Harris
Carlston Harris
Harris has been fighting longer but is still young. Though Impa could KO him. Harris needs to fight smart.

Smith vs. Spann
Anthony Smith, TKO, R3
After seeing how Smith dealt with Crute just made me respect Smith more. He will never win vs top 4 at the division, but like others have mentioned he is Brunson-esque as a Gatekeeper.

Giagos vs. Tsarukyan
Arman Tsarukyan, DEC
Arman top 5 LW in the next 3 years. Arrman, Islam, Gamrot, Fizaev, And Guram are the future.

Jackson vs. Buys
Montel Jackson, TKO, R2

Lopez vs. Alateng
Heili Alateng, DEC
Going with Heili because I feeel like he's just a little bit more technical, he's also extremely durable so he's gonna be difficult to get out of there, Lopez may have a power advantage but he does leave himself so open when throwing strikes and I think Heili can work his counter shots and just control the pace of this fight
