Tecia Torres is about to get subbed to oblivion.  Dern is going to go on another run.  Marina was just better than her right now but she'll be back in the title picture again at some point.

Kelvin should have gone to WW. What does he do instead? Fight probably the best prospect at mw rn who has a significant size advantage over him. Savage

Kelvin get cut if he losses this one, You can't be 1-6 in the UFC and kept you job unless you Alvey , And honesly,  I think Dana might be letting Kelvin out to the Gallows, Nassodine is quite nasty, And you know how the sport go, The old feed the young and I don't think you can come back from a lossing streak when you been their done that, Kelvin already fought for the belt

And before you counter and say, He lost to top 10 guys only, And I counter you counter with saying, Think of Kelvin like a maneger position at a company, The UFC won't kept him around if he not winning as there pay him lot of money, They rather have someone cheaper

Yeah idk I get the imavov hype and he’s going to be massive over kelvin but then I see who kelvins losing to am I’m like “is imavov really on the same level as these guys?”. Then I also remember how close the cannonier and till fights were

Also I really don’t think kelvin will get cut if he loses. He may be 1-6 in last 7 but he literally saved 2 main events last year. Dana loves guys who take short notice fights and also look at the 5 he’s lost to. All are top 5-8 or champ except for till but most people thought he won that fight. The cannonier fight was close too. Idk what they do with him but it would be kind of ridiculous if they cut him imo

I think Imaov beat Gastelum at this stage of his career and then gastelum get cut.

Torres vs Dern is a very close fight. I think Torres win but it wont be a beatdown like wath Rodrigues did. probably a split decision that can go both side.

Still not understanding this hype on Daniel santos. Second very skilled opponent he’s gonna fight yet I’ve heard absolutely nothing about him.

Gastelum is a tough out for anybody. Hate to see him being put to the test against a surging prospect when i still think pretty highly of Gastelum. Gastelum headlined two UFC events in 2021.

Ik I just wanna know what the deal is. I guess I’ll have to find out cuz no one seems to know who this kid is lol. Usually when there’s someone who fights people of arce or valiev’s level they’ll at least have some hype but nope nothing on this kid

Still a few slots left so I am hoping that they add in some good additions.  Where is Gillespie btw?
