Justin Burlinson, TKO, R2
Cage Warrior, Bamma, Belator Vet whod pick the Cannuck?

Predictions: 2 of 5 Winners, 2 Perfect, 150 Points   |   Tied for 534th

Estremadura vs. Maheshate
Achilles Estremadura, TKO, R1
Found no tape on Maheshate but Estremadura will crumble him anyways.

Lainesse vs. Burlinson
Justin Burlinson, TKO, R2
Lainesse throws sloppy strikes, gets TD’d, gets 10-8’d, and gets TKO’d in Round 2.

Qiu vs. Ferreira
Erisson Ferreira, DEC
He has a lot more meaning behind the strikes he throws than Qiu.

Bilharinho vs. Kawaihae
Canaan Kawaihae, TKO, R2
Will set up a picture perfect counter for those unorthodox kicks.

Shang vs. Puerta
Juan Puerta, DEC
Easy takedowns with Shang’s rushing style

Bilharinho vs. Kawaihe is the most interesting fight on this card for me. Somebody's getting finished most likely and they both have good records.

My only thing about canaan is that he’s only fought one time since 2016 and, while impressive, a 20 second ninja choke doesn’t tell you how much he’s improved. For all I know he could still be the same fighter that got destroyed against chase hooper

Shang vs. Puerta
Zhifa Shang, DEC
Puerta showed me not a lot tbh, decent leg kick and decent trips; didn't see too many takedowns.Boxing pretty trash also.
On the other hand I like Shang, aggressive stand up and doesn't stall I'm the grappling like Puerta seems to do. Shang is actively trying to hurt you from bottom and doesn't sit in a body triangle hoping to get up. He works hard to get off the ground.

Estremadura vs. Maheshate
Achilles Estremadura, DEC
Just simply cannot go with Maheshate knowing there is barely any footage, has power by the looks of it but just can't tell. Estremadura has a nice aggressive stand up hoping he can take some power punches if nee

Qiu vs. Ferreira
Erisson Ferreira, DEC
This one is painful af to pick, I have absolutely no clue both look kinda ****... Lun Qiu could be held down by a wet paper bag + just too my loses for me to side with him and Ferreira's comp level is trash af.

Bilharinho vs. Kawaihae
Jonas Bilharinho, TKO, R1
Honestly gonna be a good fight but really like Bilharinho's counter striking and power, Kawaihae in the quick comeback fight against Childers honestly looked good but he was completely dropping his hands when he threw those leg kicks don't get me wrong he had power in them. I honestly think Bilharinho catches him early with a hook that ends the night for Kawaihae cannot be dropping your hands like that against a powerful counterstrike.

Estremadura vs. Maheshate
Achilles Estremadura, DEC
Estremadura is more effective in striking and decent level of grappling, so its pretty probable who Estremadura wins

Lainesse vs. Burlinson
Justin Burlinson, TKO, R2
Burlinsson faced way bettee competition. For me Lainesse is too slow for Welter, yes he is strong ok. But he hasnt grappling isnot the fastest striker. And Burlinsson dont get mw wrong he is not big thing but man he has the pressure and grappling advantage and even better combinations in striking(and pretty good stamina and durability)

Qiu vs. Ferreira
Erisson Ferreira, TKO, R1
Stand up fight... I think the braziluan takes advantage of that.

Bilharinho vs. Kawaihae
Jonas Bilharinho, TKO, R2
I dont like no one of this guys. My prediction is this cause is Bilharinho keeps the fight on the feet the most part of the fight he would take advantage of that better than Kawaihae

Shang vs. Puerta
Juan Puerta, DEC
Remarkable win of Shang is Zhulmagulov 6 years ago by S.Dec he is a complete fighter. I think Puerta got this cause the BJJ advantage, physique advantage(striking, clinch, takedowns) but its a close fight in my opinion cause is too probable that this one goes to the distance

Estremadura vs Mahestate
Mahestate, DEC

Zhifa vs Puerta
Zhifa Shang, TKO, R2
Zhifa Shang is a temporary Chinese star at 125 pounds, along with Su Mudaerji. He is already 35 and he will stay 2-3 years in the UFC.


Lin vs Ferreira
Lin Qiu, TKO, R3
He was very lucky to get into a series of contenders. Because in the future, such a chance will most likely no longer exist. His record is not the best 14-7. Therefore, he will cling to this opportunity and finish the fight beautifully.


This night is for the Chinese !!!

Very shady fights from betting prospective, only good one is Bilharinho vs Kawaihae going with the more hyped one Bilharinho, if his takedown defence is good he should win this.

Lainesse vs. Burlinson
Justin Burlinson, SUB, R2
Both are decent fighters, Lainesse is a wild man on the feet just starts winging punches. Burlinson has good head movement, think Burlinson will get the takedown when Lainesse is swinging either GNP or sub him. Lainesse can definitely land a knockout punch but we have no evidence of Burlinson having a suspect chin.
