MacDonald vs. Cooper III
Rory MacDonald, DEC
I would assume everybody here thinks MacDonald won his last fight against Gleison Tibau. Judges were incompetent for sure, but the fight was kinda competitive, and it's puzzling for me that Rory wasn't able to dominate clearly. Cooper III is very talented and I'm not very confident in my pick there...

MacDonald vs. Cooper III

John,  I am betting Cooper. He is younger, he is hungrier, and he feels over-looked because he is being rated as the underdog (with all things being fairly equal) and even though MacD lost his last fight. I have watched a lot of tape on these two, and you are correct in that Cooper is a very talented fighter, and I just have not seen that MacD has faced anyone as non-stop and explosive as Cooper. Good luck, either way.

7 time out of 9 the LW underdog won this season so I think blindly bet on all LW underdog in single bet could be a good move but i'm not sure I have enought ball to do it.

Radzhabov wins this fight imo. Thought he won the first fight.  Interested to see how Aubin-Mercier looks after his last fight. I always fade Curtis Millender lol

I keep seeing the Bubba Jenkins vs. Chris Wade and Brendan Loughnane vs. Movlid Khaybulaev fight odds being available like these two fights are happening this Friday. I also see them in the bout announcements above, but not on the fight card.  Anyone know if these two are happening at PFL #7?

MacDonald vs. Cooper III
Ray Cooper III, TKO, R2
MacDonald got robbed in that last fight, those judges are morons and if you think Tibau won you're a moron too. Cooper hits like a truck and his TDD will be enough to keep it on the feet, I feel like it's just a matter of time until he finds the shot to end it all.

Magomedkerimov vs. Sy
Magomed Magomedkerimov, SUB, R2
Yeesh, it's like Magomed Magomedov but even more scary name

Collard vs. Manfio

This is gonna be nonstop action

Radzhabov vs. Martinez II
Loik Radzhabov, TKO, R1
Radzhabov is coming for blood and he doesn't trust these judges

Cooper vs. Hill
Brett Cooper, TKO, R1
Both of these guys are on getting-finished streaks, brutal

Bowen vs. Lombardo
Michael Lombardo, TKO, R1
Bowen is awesome and I love watching him referee the SlapFight Championship, but Lombardo is probably going to make quick work of him out there.

@Ricky you're absolutely right, they care more about hurting other organizations than maximizing viewership and it sucks for everyone.

Should I wait to the finals to fade Rory McDonald? or do it now against Ray Cooper. Rory is really shot, Rory shouldn't be losing to Gleason in 2021, Even if he did get robbed, The fight should be that close to begin with as Gleason is so shot. Also Rory went to a draw with Jon Fitch approxmatlly 10 years after being shot. 

I think Ray Cooper is hungry enough, And also have the skill to beat Rory Mcdonald now a day. I also don't know if this is unpopular, But I don't think any former UFC fighter will be getting a 7 figure paycheck if you get what I'm saying
