Borralho is def the pick here. ITD is probably too but Early Ml is the way to go.

Petrosyan has faced and beat better guys, including those who do what Kolev does but better, so I'll go with him. Other than that, and the WMMA fight, the favorites should have an easy time out.

Renfro vs. Parsons
Solomon Renfro, TKO, R1
Renfro's speed will be the difference. Parsons has demonstrated he has a good chin, he might test Renfro's this fight.

Kolev has fought low competition with many of his opponents having negative records. 7 OF HIS OPPONENTS he’s faced have negative records. Very surprised majority on here have him to win while the bookies have Armen as the slight fav to win

Ill take Armen. Seems to be the slightly better fighter, has been more active, and fought tougher competition

Machado vs. Rodriguez
Piera Rodriguez, TKO, R2
Piera began his career at the UCC, trained and lived in Panama for many years. In her last fight she beat Svetlana Gotsyk a Ukrainian fighter from the American Top Team with a very good record (13-4) and with the experience of having faced fighters like Weili Zhang, Lena Ovchynnikova and Magdaléna Šormová (2x). As Machado is a Striker with a high percentage of KO, Rodriguez must be cautious but make respect in striking to bring the fight to the ground and seek to finish with ground and pound. This week may be the biggest for MMA in my country with the possibility of Piera landing a contract in the UFC, as well as the fight on Saturday of Joselyne Edwards against Jessica Rose-Clark

Interesting how Petrosyan is an underdog on Tapology votes. I think people might be surprised.

just goes to show you how much faith people put into records without actually looking at them, the guy is a certified can crusher, out those 10 wins, 6 of his opponent were 0-0 or had losing records, and the guy hasn't fought since August of 2019 while our boy Petrosyan fought this year in January, June & July. Should be a banger!!! parlayed all the favorites, let's do this!!!
