I agree, I think y'all are on the money with the fight breakdown. But there's just this part of me that thinks Vettori has squeezed a lot of juice out of beating Hermansson in a kickboxing match (not his strong suit). I can envision a humbling. I might pick the Cannoniers and Brunsons and Stricklands to work him over. Dunno what kinda Costa we're about to see, but his takedown defense looked good against Romero. If this turns into a slugfest, he could take it.

Souza vs. Markos
Livinha Souza, DEC
Think she's a bit better everywhere in this one, striking might be a little close, Markos can be aggressive but I think Souza's BJJ and grappling overall is better and her striking might be a bit cleaner too. Markos has looked awful in her last few so it's just impossible to pick her in these kind of fights

Molina vs. Lacerda
Jeff Molina, TKO, R2
Found it hard to find some tape on Lacerda for this one, judging by his record he's got some good bjj so I would expect him to try and take this fight down to the ground here. Molina has some clean boxing though and Molina is also very good at getting back to his feet once he is taken down. I think Molina can control where this fight goes and I expect him to be the far better striker

Costa vs. Vettori
Marvin Vettori, DEC
Feel like it's gonna be a boring fight of vetorri holding him down for 5 rounds or either tkoing costa after tiring him out, this is exactly like the wonderboy and burns fight where Gilbert just resorted to a boring holding wonderboy down the whole fight just to get a win back from the previous title fight loss, feel like vettori will do exactly the same

Molina vs. Lacerda
Jeff Molina, DEC
Remember his last fight on the weili rose card? Molina is a ******* dog

Costa vs Vettori
Paulo Costa first round KO. In the middle of the round, the fighters will enter into an exchange, and Costa will throw Vettori.

Staropoli vs Pickett 
Pickett second round KO or Staropoli DEC. Pickett has big power, but at him bad cardio and if he does not knock out until the end of the second round, then Staropoli will include wrestling

Caceres vs Choi
Caceres, DEC 

Villanueva vs Negumereanu 
Villanueva second round KO. Villanueva is in a bad position and he will go all in

RIP Onama, you'll do good things in featherweight for sure.

@Thewelshguy1998 Very patient fighter who relies primarily on his tight and down the pipe boxing with sound shot selection and good defense. Fights in bursts and once he lets his hands go he cracks guys. Happy to control distance and walk them down but also good enough to throw on the back foot and catch people coming in as well. It's hard to gauge how well he'll do here it might just be the level of competition making him look better than he is but I really like his chances.

I don't really rate Mason Jones tbh, some decent regional names on his record but his style is an easy way to get knocked out.

Marvin is about to wrestle this man into exhaustion. Expect Marvin to take a break and fight the loser of Brunson/Cannonier (this is essentially a title eliminator fight so fighting the loser makes sense).

Worthy vs. Herbert
Jai Herbert, TKO, R1
I like Herbert's boxing and without there not being any threat of the takedown here I do think he finishes Worthy. Worthy leaves his chin exposed a lot, it's high in the air whenever he throws and Herbert has a significant speed advantage, if he can find a good counter shot on Worthy he can get the finish and that's what I think is gonna happen
