I like him but I think askar wins. It’s striker vs grappler and I think askars grappling will shine through. Would not surprise me if Kai knocks him out tho

Agree with you on FLW being underrated. My only problem is the division isn’t that active but once figgy vs Moreno 3 is done I think the division will move forward; especially with all the talent they signed from contender series

I think Rakic could of got the title shot,  if he just went for it more in his fights,  But Jiri stole the title shot from him because his 2 fights were crazy AF, With 2 brutal KO, While Rakic last fight was just terrible, first off,Santos did win the fight if you score the whole fight, Really lame fight from Rakic, He literally gave up fighting in the 3rd round, I will say I get a extream low   enjoyment  from the Smith fight, But other will think it boring, I get mild enjoyment from watching a wresl******* as it just impresive

The UFC would rather have an entertaining fighter fight for the belt then a boring fighter, And Rakic and Jiri are approximately equally derersing, But too Rakic defence a boring win is 100% better then a entertaining lost, And his still one fight away from the belt,

I don’t think he’s a boring fighter overall but yes his last two fights have been unbelievably boring

If they’re putting people like lerone and wood on this card they must already have March 19 filled and are just waiting to announce the bouts

Interested in seeing how Blachowicz returns following that disappointing title fight loss where he absolutely didnt show up.

I don't see how Lerone Murphy loses to Nate Landwehr.

Just got taping both of Lerone Murphy & Nate Landwehr past few bouts and I strongly believe Lerone Murphy wins this in dominant fashion. I reckon some recency bias will follow Nate Landwehr in this bout with Lerone Murphy because of the so called improvemetns he made against Ludovit Klein. I went back and watched that bout and wasn't impressed at all. It was a more calculated Nate Landwehr but it wasn't as if he was this new and improved striker or wreslter/grappler. There was moments in that bout where the dog in him really wanted to come out but it didn't. Let me remind you that this card will be the first UFC FN card in front of thousands of fans in more a year and a half or so, so you best believe Nate Landwehr is going to go back to his default self.

In terms of the match up between the two, Lerone Murphy has him covered everywhere. I think if this bout stays standing long enough Lerone Murphy will be landing the cleaner shots and would hurt Nate Landwehr a number of times. Lerone Murphy also has those calf kicks which is another great tool of his. If I had to say a concern maybe the ground game but from what I've seen it's clearly improving on a fight-to-fight basis plus Nate Landwehr doesn't go for TD's (that submission victory against Ludovit Klein was his first submission and he also went on to say in the post fight interview that he doesn't plan doing so again as he claims he still has power in his hands and is expecting to finish his next opponent on the feet). Lerone Murphy got into some trouble on the mat with Ricardo Ramos & Douglas Silva de Andrade but stayed calm and worked his way out of the trouble. Lerone Murphy is a very smart and methodical fighter in the octagon. Lerone Murphy's cardio also checks out so that's not a avenue for Nate Landwehr to exploit, so how does he win ? He doesn't. If you were to beat Lerone Murphy you would need to be world class at a particular aspect of MMA. A good example would be Lerone Murphy Vs. Makwan Amirkhani. As much as we **** on Makwan Amirkhani he is 100% one of the best grapplers in the FeatherW division. Before that knee finish from Lerone Murphy he was getting taken down at will. With Nate Landwehr his not particually good anywhere, his just a tough SOB and and that's cool and all but that's not what it takes to defeat and take the 0 from Lerone Murphy.

Prediction: Lerone Murphy via first round TKO
