Rory doesn't have that killer instinct anymore, he should have finished Tibau quite easily. Ray Cooper III was born and chose violence, I don't know if Rory has it mentally anymore and if Ray Cooper III has it, that man is a killer.

PFL & Bellator

Predictions: 8 of 10 Winners, 1 Perfect, 455 Points   |   Tied for 349th

Will toss Bellator to TV and PFL to muh Laptop (sits to the side). Pretty easy to catch em both.

Kinda used to multi-streaming so no biggie.

Disappointed we couldn’t see the original #1 vs #4 matchup (Zeferino vs Magomedkerimov) but I guess Magomedkerimov vs Sy is still fun. Magomedkerimov vs Ray Cooper a rematch of the 2018 welterweight final would be cool to see , but I’m itching for a Magomedkerimov vs Rory fight.

Egregious New Predictions

Predictions: 8 of 9 Winners, 4 Perfect, 500 Points   |   Tied for 193rd

Umalatov vs. Silva
I lean towards Magomed Umalatov at -240. He has an original tai otoshi. Umalatov won't hamper the enemy. Cash me outside!

Tibau vs. Terrill
I choose Gleison Tibau at -340. He has an obscene hiza guruma and a ultrasonic bear hug and also a fabulous inverted atomic drop. Tibau shall destroy the previous pitfalls. Beep boop!

Cooper vs. Hill
I go for Brett Cooper at -215. He has a brilliant bicycle kick and a genuine mindset and also a sassy suplex. Cooper won't claw the enemy.

Stewart vs. Espinoza
I go with Elvin Espinoza at -240. He has an amazing facebuster and a bonkers counter left and also a gauche finger lock. Espinoza can grind the counteragent.

Aubin-Mercier vs. Horcher
I crave Olivier Aubin-Mercier at -560. He has an eccentric leaping clothesline and a maniacal bicycle kick. Aubin-Mercier will likely terminate the feat. Oss!

Magomedkerimov vs. Sy
I choose Magomed Magomedkerimov at -750. He has an integral crossface. Magomedkerimov must escape the enemy. Держи хвост пистолетом!

Radzhabov vs. Martinez II
I am taking Loik Radzhabov at -170. He has an automatic dragon sleeper. Radzhabov shall knuckle the enemy.

Bowen vs. Lombardo
I appoint Michael Lombardo at -330. He has a delicious head coach. Lombardo must operate the previous pitfalls. Truth!

Collard vs. Manfio
I am all over Clay Collard at -170. He has an exotic facebuster and an exhaustive reverse side kick. Collard ought to vandalize the corner man.

MacDonald vs. Cooper III
Rory MacDonald, DEC
Both these guys are 22-7-1 … that’s really ******* weird

Magomedkerimov vs. Sy
Magomed Magomedkerimov, SUB, R2

Collard vs. Manfio
Clay Collard, DEC
I’m picking every favorite on this card lol ****

Radzhabov vs. Martinez II
Loik Radzhabov, DEC
Radzhabov def gunna wrestle**** like their first fight

Tibau vs. Terrill
Gleison Tibau, SUB, R1
Tibau will torch this guy, competition/experience gap is ******* insane

Aubin-Mercier vs. Horcher
Olivier Aubin-Mercier, SUB, R3
OAM via domination followed by strangulation… Darrell Horcher fought Khabib hehehe

Cooper vs. Hill
Brett Cooper, TKO, R2
Brett Cooper fought in Affliction lol that’s wild to me

Umalatov vs. Silva
Magomed Umalatov, DEC
Silva is live to win this fight imo … guy has a submission win over Drew Dober (that was overturned to a no contest) Also Umalatov has never been the distance in his pro career & Silva has 9 losses & has never been finished … this is prelim will be a fun one

That was an absurd mismatch as soon as it hit the mat. Stewart needs to learn a lot more grappling
