Caanan is a big dude and looked pretty legit against Hooker til he gassed, also pulled off a Ninja choke in like 2 seconds in his last fight. Think he'll finish Bilharinho and score a contract.

Prediction Comments

Predictions: 2 of 5 Winners, 0 Perfect, 115 Points   |   Tied for 692nd

Estremadura vs. Maheshate
Achilles Estremadura, TKO, R2
Both beat below average comp, Achilles more active

Lainesse vs. Burlinson
Yohan Lainesse, TKO, R3
Yohan more active, older, KO guy. Burlinson 100% finish rate.

Qiu vs. Ferreira
Erisson Ferreira, TKO, R1
Qiu is more active, but gets KO'd and not special, Ferreira out a 18 months, 100% KO/TKO rate, one split loss

Bilharinho vs. Kawaihae
Canaan Kawaihae, SUB, R2
Grappler vs striker, Jonas - 1 fight since 2016, Canaan - second DWCS

Shang vs. Puerta
Zhifa Shang, DEC
20-fight win streak vs 11-fight win streak, both have some questionable competition in there, but some decent. Sub guys.

China is one of the biggest global markets and is also a growing MMA scene so the ufc wants to tap into that market by producing the next Weili Zhang. Also being so many Chinese, if they get lots of stars it makes them much more revenue

Unfortunately, it seems all the Chinese fighters have been losing since Usman vs Masvidal 2.  I believe all 4 of the fighters from that "W.A.R.S" promotion lost and that's also when Weili Zhang lost her belt too.  On the last Contender Series, all the Chinese fighters lost and both of the Chinese fighters from the Abu Dhabi card from yesterday lost as well.

I agree. It’s the unfortunate truth but a lot of the Chinese fighters just aren’t good. That’s not a knock on them but the Chinese mma scene is not the same as regional us scene. That being said, I think zhifa shang probably has the best chance out of all the fighters on this card

not looking for any early bets on this card. no 50/50 odds for the most part and i get a weird feeling about some of these matchups. could be a weird night with little to no contracts imo. watch out everyone

Y’all forget about Song Yadong? He just beat Casey Kenny on the Lewis Vs. Gane card.

Song has had a few lucky decisions go his way. Cody Stamman and Chito Vera both got crap decisions that they should have won.

They are trying really hard to push the Chinese fighters.  That did not end up so well last week.

Yadong is one of the few exceptions. Obviously, it’s impossible for every Chinese fighter to be bad, but you also have to realize that he, along with the other good Chinese fighters train in America where they have more resources and better training partners

For example weili now trains at fight ready. Jingliang trains at the Chinese affiliate of ATT. Song trains at TAM. Because the scene is still developing in China, they are so behind in terms of gyms, training partners, competition, etc.
