Wright is ******

Predictions: 8 of 11 Winners, 4 Perfect, 605 Points   |   Tied for 1121st

Much like in the bedroom, Jordan is an early finisher, and a messy one at that. Jordan “White Is” Wright’s fights come and go faster than a father from the ghetto. But so is Bruno. So how can I tell Bruno will win? Well for one, his resume actually consists of decent competition and not just homeless cum guzzlers Jordan’s dad found in the back of a 7/11 on elm street. Jordan has killed so many cans from that gas station, he turned that 7/11 into a 9/11, except nobody bothered making ****** history channel documentaries about it. Jordan’s diet strictly consists of canned beans, canned corn, canned salmon, canned soda, and canned people. He’s beaten up more nobodies in the ring than Sean Connery has beaten women, cept the women put up more of a fight. I’ll take angry Portuguese man over pasty white choir boy any day.

Nunes vs. Peña
Amanda Nunes, DEC
I think Pena could make it rough for Nunes, But I still give her **** all chances of winning, I think Pena is tough and she does tend to make all her fight her style of fight, The only thing is she doesn't alway win them, And they alway close, And Honestly it pretty cool that she alway does it, Even Valintina fought the Pena fight, I don't think I ever seen a fighter like that , The big problem is that I can't see her winning her style of fight, Even If she make Nunes fight her fight, Nunes is a black belt in jiu-jitsu and judo and she never had issue with grappler and on the flip side dominant better grappler then Pena, And that If Nunes fight the Pena fight, They is a huge chance Nunes just fights her fight and nukes her, As even though we haven't really seen it, Pena stand up is pretty suspect, And it Amanda freaking Nunes

I feel bad for Cody. Once you’ve gotten visible neck tattoos, your only chance of employment is either a ****star or an MMA fighter, and he’s definitely going to have to settle for the former after France sends him into orbit, bam boom straight to the ***********ing moon.

I don’t think Cody has it in him to fight at Flyweight. He’s already skinnier than me, and if any of you saw me shirtless, you’d immediately assume I was a half-dead Cambodian child, and because 95% of Tapology users are white, you’d probably adopt me for clout. The idea of Cody making flyweight gives me this image of a really small, even weaker looking Christian Bale in The Machinist, cept’ with more prison tats. And beyond the health aspect, I think Cody has exposed himself at this point as not being as good as people thought he was. He may have beaten Cruz, but Cruz admitted in interviews he wanted to put on more of a show cause he was sick of being regarded as boring, and it showed. He wasn’t the same man that day, and afterwards Cody has shown nothing significant for his career beyond a quick knockout over a worn and torn Portuguese midget. 

France trains at one of the best striking gyms in the world, and while he ain’t no prodigy, you can bet your ass he’ll prod and poke at Cody until he’s lubed and ripe for a good ol’ Alligator ****house. Hope Cody used viagra before ******* himself signing the contract for this fight.

@Sabbath

I think you are over estimating France and under estimating Cody
Only 1 champion level fighter of the two, and one will be bigger, stronger and used to taking punches from bigger stronger opponents

Used to taking punches? As in, better at getting knocked the **** out? 

Everyone was flaunting over the “new” GarBrandt after he knocked the soul out of Assunscao. “Oh wow, he’s so patient now! His new mindset will carry him to Demi-God status! We should be sacrificing goats and virgins in his name as we speak!” But of course, it only took one fight later to realize his newfound mindset was all a bunch of ********. He lost to Font, not because he was getting jabbed to ****, or because Font had better range, but because he refused to listen to his corner like he did against Munhoz. His coach was pleading, praying for Cody to start throwing uppercuts since the start of round 3, and he didn’t listen. Men don’t change overnight. Cody is the same man with a couple new tricks up his sleeve. 

Also, him being able to eat a punch will entirely depend on how the weight cut goes, which I believe will go poorly. Remember how ******’ gross Dillashaw looked before the Cejudo fight?

Prediction Comments

Predictions: 9 of 14 Winners, 5 Perfect, 680 Points   |   Tied for 417th

Kara-France vs. Garbrandt
Kai Kara-France, TKO, R2
I think this is going be fight of the night, It's the highest stake fight on the undercard, And both guy are bangers, Don't take a piss break during this fight,As on the Cody side, He need this win badly, He be cut if he loses this one and even bigger, he doesn't want to be 1-5 after winning the belt approximately 5 year ago, He be the biggest one hit wonder in MMA history, And on the Kai side, He is a prelim fight and to get a win over a former UFC champion is huge for his career, But now let get to the fight, I like Kai in this fight tbh, I think if it a fire fight, I favour Kai as I think Kai is one of the more powerful punchers at 125, and i'm not a brain scientist, But draining an extra 10lb of water from you brain, Is not good for your chin and Cody not know for his durabilty

Blanchfield vs. Maverick
Erin Blanchfield, DEC
I don't know if this is a unpopular take, But even though the top of women 125 is pretty bad, It actually might have the most prospect, And this is a fight between the two hottest prospect in the divison, This fight could be like Holloway vs McGregor, Where in the future both girl do big thing, Now let get to the fight, I think this fight Blanchfield is the brighter prospect, But Maverick is further along in her carrer, It a really well match fight, I'm 50-50 on this fight tbh, But I might slightly edge Blanchfield because of the grappling, She one of the higher pedigree grappler in the UFC, Really impressive for a girl who only 21, I seen Maverick get taken down a few time, If she get taken down by Blanchfield she ain't getting back up, I'll favour her to do this for at the very minimon 2 out of the 3 rounds, But I'm not confendent, As If she doesn't do this, Maverick most likely win because Blanchfield is really stiff on the feet, And Maverick is quite fluid from the tape I see

Hall vs. Minner
Ryan Hall, SUB, R2
I hope Minner listen to Coach Krause most likely game plan, Or  what I think is Coach Krause  most likely game plan for him to use, The gameplan is avoid Plan A as I don't think they a worst fighter to fight Plan A against, I think he has more of a chance to catch Max or Volk in a flukey sub, Than Ryan Hall, But if Minner uses Plan B, I think i give him a solid chance, But I might still favour Ryan Hall in that style of fight because like every single Hall opponent, He be scared to death of getting his ankle rip off, So Ryan can use his meme kick to slight outpoint Minner being hesitant on the feet, That Ryan Hall style tbh, He's ankle roles only work on BJ Penn, But he win fight with the style I mention earlier, And it does work against people at a certain level, 

Cachoeira vs. Robertson
Gillian Robertson, SUB, R1
I don't get why 33% percent of people are picking Cathoeira, Are they just going off record, I don't think you watch anyone of this girl recent fights if you picking Cachoeira, They're a reason Robertson a -400 favourite, Catchoura beat Gina Mazany and Shana Dobson, Big whoop, They are 2 of the worst fighter on the roster, And even still, She got wrestled **** by Gina before Gina gassed bad, If Robertson get in those postion, Either she won't gasses and grappler for 15, Or get the submession, Gillian is a soild 125-ver, Pricillia is a bottom 125-ver

My main high unit parlay is probably going to be O'Malley and Silva. And I know there's a lot of O'Malley haters and doubters, and I get it, but I would be more worried about wright pulling the upset than paiva. Paiva seems like a pretty easy matchup for O'Malley. O'Malley barely makes 135 and the other dude is a big 125, and isn't a huge grappler. I would be completely surprised if he doesn't get picked apart on the feet for most the fight, if even lasts. Honestly, career and income wise I think it's smart for O'Malley to play his career this way. Slow assent, cash both checks and increase your rate over each contract renewal, while cashing bonuses, and making yourself one of the most known names competing with those fighting the top guys. But that's besides the point. I don't really wanna pick any striker over O'Malley, but a well rounded top guy will be his downfall. But this is great business and easy money for Sean. Also, has there ever been a fighter in UFC history who has been finished more than once from that nerve in the calf being hit? I can't think of anyone. 

Bruno I don't really need to explain. Unless wrights camp and has there **** together and says "ok we're going to come full left feild and just hold him down the whole 3 rounds, for the next 2 months we're going to work on nothing but takedowns and holding top control" and on top of that he has natural talent in it, this should be ao clearly Bruno. Don't love the lines on these 2, but they are fair I'll say.

I believe Sean will put Paiva in a coma, but I’m still picking Paiva out of sheer spite for that Twinkie eating doofus. Fun Fact: Did you know Sean admitted on his podcast his girlfriend and him have a polyamourus relationship, and Sean says he’s jealous of how many BBCs she’s been blacked by? Yeah, sorry, I don’t bet on simps

Lowkey thinking of switching to blanchfield. Maverick is really good and in everyone’s eyes is still undefeated (that barber fight still makes my blood boil). But she did kinda slow down a little bit in the fight. Blanchfield is also really really good in the grappling realm. I was also thinking experience was gonna be a factor but they’re very close in age. Blanchfield has also fought ufc level competition outside of the ufc plus there is a 1 year age difference.
