When Chandler hit Charles with that right hand, it went straight through his head. He followed up, landed some heavy shots.

I couldn't ******* believe it, I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I had seen Charles crack before, Poirier is bread for war. He does not stop, he does not quit, and he gets the finish.

This is said for Charles, his record speaks for itself. What we're gonna get here is one of the best fights ever, these two men will not give, and only look for the finish.

They really ruined the poster by having Nunes Pena on it. Just imagine how much better if the poster was just Charles and dustin, the two best in the world facing off.

Honest question: is Neal going to be out of the fight given that it's a nonviolent misdemeanor?

Geoff is ******

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

Okay, let’s ignore the misdemeanor **** here for a minute and address the elephant in the room: Geoff’s major weakness is he simply struggles to adapt to opponents with ‘weird’ fighting styles. 

Three of his most noteworthy losses are against Thompson, Holland and Magny. Thompson fights like nobody else at welterweight, Holland is floaty, long limbed and wild, and Magny is a high volume clinch grappler with a lot of tools in his kit. Neal adapted in some areas, but struggled in others. He was able to press them all against the cage at some point during the fight, but came up short against their strengths, such as Thompson’s darting straight punches, Holland’s body strikes and Thai clinch, and Magny’s cardio and pace. He’s good at dealing with straight forward, hands on brawlers, like Camacho or Perry. The only exception to this rule is Niko Price, whom has an infamously bizarre fight kit, but even then Geoff struggled on the feet. 

Santiago is kind of an awkward case. He is a hands on brawler, something that should appeal to Geoff’s style, but he’s a one of kind brawler. His style is uniquely his and against a far less experienced and diverse matchup in Neal, I think he will come out on top.

I think minner might be a dog here. His scrambles are good and he has better striking..hall has nothing but ground game. I can see minner stuffing a TD and just pounding his lights out.

My picks and locks are ; Dustin , Amanda , Cody , Sean , Emmet , Tai , Silva , Miranda , and Costa. I know it's alot but .. they're all finishers and I can see almost all the fights on this card inside the distance.

Also , Ige doesn't stand a chance. Like him as a fighter but Emmet is all around better.

Idk osama I think hall should beat him pretty handedly. Minner has been subbed 8 times and finished in every loss against one of the best bjj guys in the division. Most people avoid going to the ground with hall in the first place, Minner is gonna openly welcome it. Maybe he has a chance swarming hall when he goes for a heel hook and just ko him like topuria did

Also I wouldn’t say halls standup is terrible, it’s just weird. He’s got that taekwando base from training with thanh le. He did drop and totally outstrike Darren Elkins with his kicks so that’s pretty good

I'm not betting on that fight. That's just asking to lose. But I just like minners scrambles. His stand up is like 5/10. I just could see a upset here.

I could too, just think its more likely hall than minner. Minner by sub would be crazy. maybe njr***** should bet it to get his money up

I also think it's hilarious that he's finished almost all his fights by submission and almost all his losses are by submission . He's a sub or be subbed fighter and I doubt he wins by sub against hall. I think he could go to a decision. Idk. Maybe hall by sub Rd 1.
