The booking makes sense tho I just wish they gave him an exciting low level LW. So many guys in the division who are around that same level but are at least exciting. Like give him Uros medic or someone at that level not this boring decisionator. I think Jared would have ****** paddy up tho so good on the ufc for not booking that

I’m torn on that one. Might have to go with volkov idk how his cardio holds up if he doesn’t get that finish. Volkov has a great chin too I think only ko’ed twice in 42 fights which is pretty insane at HW

They can't have Pimblett lose this early on.  i expect at least 3-4 fights like this until they try to give him an undeserved title shot.

They wouldn’t do that lol. They’re probably feeding him cans and are gonna have him on a 5 or 6 winstreak before giving him a ranked fighter. Basically the Sean o malley path except Sean was skilled they just don’t want to damage paddy hype train

All of those are deserved except for paddy imo. Paddy deserves hype but more because he’s a fan favorite in England, not because he’s actually good. Shore honestly doesn’t have hype; he’s an incredible fighter but flys under the radar as people don’t talk about him much. Kinda same with hadley I think because again, most people don’t know who he is. Mokaev is definitely deserving of the hype tho watching his tape he’s a ******* stud

How much did they offer to Aspinall for sitching from an easy fight againts Abdurakimov to a tough fight againts Volkov?

Prediction Comments

Predictions: 2 of 4 Winners, 1 Perfect, 150 Points   |   Tied for 3992nd

Volkov vs. Aspinall
Alexander Volkov, DEC
Oh man, what a great main event. Tom Aspinall is on fire right now, and Volkov has been a consistent contender hanging along the top 7 of heavyweight. Tom seems to strike at a higher level. His speed and technique is incredible. That being said, Volkov has obviously competed and won at a much higher level. Tom looks better against unproven or washed up opponents. Alexander has fights against Gane, Overeem, Lewis, Tybura, Werdum, and at least a few more great opponents while Tom's resume consists of the remains of Andrei Arlovski, and Serghi Spivak on short notice. Even with that in mind, Alexander looked very slow in his last outing, slower than usual. If Tom can overwhelm Volkov with his speed and boxing combinations, I see him winning. But right now it feels a bit ridiculous to pick Aspinall at the moment. He certainly has the skills to win, but I just think he needs more experience under his belt before fighting possible title contenders at the moment.

Pimblett vs. Vargas
Paddy Pimblett, SUB, R1
Look, I certainly see Paddy Pimblett as a good fighter. But his striking defense is abysmal, and he gets too wild in all areas. I love a good prospect, and a fun personality. Therefore, I'm rooting for Paddy and his silly rhetoric charisma. Vargas showed us that he is one tough out and fights for his wins. I don't care how you score his last fight, he made it dirty and close against a more technically gifted athlete. I believe people are disrespecting him by saying Paddy needs a step up. I'd consider him to be a more developed version of Paddy's last opponent, therefore I can see a war. And I can see a first round finish for Paddy.

Allen vs. Hooker
Dan Hooker, DEC
Not a great match to accept if you are Dan Hooker. Arnold doesn't have a lot of name value, and he is a nightmare matchup for almost anyone in the weight class. But I just think his range finding techniques combined with his length and power will be too much for Allen. Dan will win this fight using his physical attributes as oppose to raw skill. Intriguing clash and I will watch.

Mokaev vs. Durden
Muhammad Mokaev
Bias and obvious disdain aside, Durden is a tough son of a gun who certainly can make this fight nasty. But Mokaev is the real deal. He's far more well rounded than the hard headed Durden, and he's also smarter. I think Durden will fight back the entire time and make it nasty but Mokaev will gradually apply pace and pressure that is far too much for him. A nice grudge match, and I certainly know who I'll be rooting for.
