Rodrigues is a very exciting prospect at flyweight. I believe this is and will look like a mismatch. Adashev haven't impressed me.

i am done doubting Giga and the Goergian wave. He take the main event unless Kattar lands some monster shot. Giga will grind him down.

I'm not picking Giga over Kattar, he's 2% fat Zabit. Getting destroyed by Max Holloway in a Boxing match isn't indicative of anything other than the fact that probably nobody in the division can beat Max in that capacity.  Giga's best win is probably Barbosa who is very hot and cold. He 2-3 from his last five. Jamie Simmons? Cub Swanson? No. Not good comp. Kattar would have murdered those guys too. Giga will need to win this fight for me to get on the wagon. But I don't believe he will.

Honestly I believe the Giga hype I just hope he loses so people don’t write off kattar. I also feel bad for him having to fight this animal after losing 10 years of his life to max holloway

I don't buy the Barboza is hot and cold narrative especially when comparing the fact he's 2-3 in his last five. Barboza won the Felder and Ige fight and should've been 4-1 with his only recent loss being Gaethje before being stopped by Giga. Katter's a great striker by MMA standards but all the people Giga's fought in Glory are much better. The real question should be can Katter wrestle and keep Giga down to win rounds.

Yeah I’m pretty much done doubting Giga. I wasn’t sure how he would do against an experienced opponent, because if you look at his record, he’s pretty much can crushed except for his last fight. But he’s so damn good. Kattar is no joke but I’m scared to see how the holloway fight has affected him. Maybe he pulls a brian Ortega and comes back and ko’s Giga on the feet who knows

I'm very confident Giga will do to Kattar the same that Holloway did.

What makes me nervous for Kattar is his openness to eat body kicks and how heavy he is on his lead leg. He's also relatively low output. But it's also important to note that Giga is not Holloway. He doesn't have nearly the same hands or Cardio and anybody familiar with him knows that if he is pushed, he gasses bad. Kattar isn't like that. He's got the tank for five and doesn't drop off too much even if he's getting beaten up. Kickboxers tend to not do well against Boxers.

I'm not confident enough to bet on him, but I'll pick him here in a fiver. And on top of that, a Giga loss has all the makings of a great tard meme.

my thoughts exactly. Giga may be a crazy caucaus Georgian man, but hes not gonna be able to keep that output up for very long, even if he was to pull a max Holloway.

calv'n is a good test to see wheeuh gigi is at 145. i think gigi is a very high level fightah, but his two wins that he has ovah top 15 guys don't tell me if he's a top 5 guy oh not. so this is a good fight to make to see if he swing with the top 5 oh calv'n is just to bawst'n to handle

Kattar vs. Chikadze
Giga Chikadze, DEC
Beautiful matchup. Chikadze should dominate the early rounds, but Kattar is so tough he probably won't finish him, and the latter rounds will be really interesting, as Chikadze 's cardio is still a little bit short on gass...

Pereira vs. Salikhov
Michel Pereira, DEC
Haha, what a sick fight ! Both spinning in the cage until someone colapse ! I don't get Salikhov being favourite here, I get he has dangerous stand up but he's getting dangerously old at 37 years old, and Pereira has a good chin and really looked great and composed recently, managing his energy well, mixing in some decent takedowns, and still spinning and jumping when it matters the most... Anyway, It should be a lot of fun.

Sherman vs. Collier
Chase Sherman, DEC
Sherman is so disapointing. At his best (the Villanueva win was amazing) he's clearly a very talented fighter with a patient and technical kickboxing game, and still progressing. But somehow he's enable to perform intelligently most of the time. He should run over Collier, but again, who knows if he won't engage in a stupid bar fight with him and gass out mid fight...

Kattar vs. Chikadze
Calvin Kattar, TKO, R3
Giga is seriously over rated, just like Chris Daukaus was. He has no real grappling and his striking is mainly effective at range. I doubt Kattar with his boxing will give him that space. Easy Kattar KO.

Buckley vs. Razak Alhassan
Abdul Razak Alhassan, TKO, R1
Buckley is not that good. Could not even finish bum Arroyyo until R3. Chin is not great and needs only 1 Alhassan shot. Has beaten no one good, only a fluke KO of Impa.

Rodrigues vs. Adashev
Kleydson Rodrigues
KR is good. Adashev is average. Despite being a Contender series alum I will pick him.

Brito vs. Algeo
Bill Algeo, DEC
Algeo is better than bum Brito who will gas and fade. I hope the odds are close because I will make a killing on this,

Royval vs. Bontorin
Brandon Royval, TKO, R2
Easy win for Royval who is elite.

Kelleher vs. Kakhramonov
Saidyokub Kakhramonov
Sorry Brian, I like you but Kakki is better. And he doesn't have T-Rex arms.

Sherman vs. Collier
Jake Collier, DEC
Least confident pick. Both are bums, I think Sherman is the bigger bum.
