Predictions: 3 of 9 Winners, 3 Perfect, 300 Points   |   Tied for 60th

Starks vs. Eliziário
William Starks, TKO, R1
Starks beat Slava Claus, he's gonna get fast-tracked to the UFC after this

Moriarty vs. Shell
Dan Moriarty, SUB, R2
Shell appears relatively untested

Curtright vs. Shields
Jeremiah Curtright, TKO, R1
This dude's riding a 5-knockout win streak, all in 2021. He'll be coming in with some serious confidence and the only concern here is if Shields can get him down and neutralize the striking

Cloudy vs. Nichols
Annette Nichols, DEC
Cloudy has taken some very tough fights, if Nichols wasn't training at such a great gym I wouldn't be picking her.

Umarov vs. Williams
Elmar Umarov, SUB, R1
Lol what the **** is this, this looks more like a Titan FC fight

Monroe vs. Wilson
Will Monroe, TKO, R1
Gonna go with experience over being undefeated, Monroe hasn't been KO'd and that's Wilson's obvious path to victory

Highly vs. Mills
Jacob Highly, TKO, R1

Johnson vs. Mota
Charles Johnson, TKO, R4
now this is a bit of a tougher one because I dont want to count out mota, but I think johnson is legit. great striker and obviously training at tiger Muay Thai is gonna help that, but hes also very well rounded. hes massive for the division (similar to Brandon royval who he has fought) and is very quick. his hands are sharp and he likes to throw a lot of front kicks too. one thing I dont like is he is hittable at times because he doesn't always keep his hands up but mota doesn't have crazy power so he shouldn't have to worry about a ko. I haven't seen much of his offensive wrestling but is defensive wrestling is very good; hes got really good tdd. even though hes primarily a striker hes got nasty bjj too. he doesn't go to the mats often but when he sees a choke he sinks it in no problem. finally hes only lost to legit competition in both his amateur and pro career. actually had an inconsistent ammy career but had two wins over Jose johnson and lost to Carlos Hernandez. I suppose alton Cunningham isn't legit but he had a good ammy career himself. Mota is a giant FLW so im a little worried there in terms of grappling and also a little worried about him making weight but we'll see.

Moore vs. Estrázulas
Brant Moore, DEC
similar situation except im not too sure how much of a prospect brant Moore is. estraczulas trains at a good camp and has tons of experience fighting guys in the big leagues but has shown he cant really hang at that next level. Moore didnt have a great ammy career but hes rattled off 7 wins in a row now as a pro and has really good grappling (including a von flue). hes been running through LFA and probably gets a title shot or contender series offer. or maybe some other org signs him

Starks vs. Eliziário
William Starks, TKO, R2
just bad matchmaking again. probably setting Starks up for a finish so the ufc will look at him for contender series (maybe even ufc who knows). I guess the one good thing glaucio has going for him is he trains at a good gym and has a lot of experience but hes old, bad record, and been finished a ton. Starks on the other hand, has an extensive ammy career (15-1)with IMAAF experience (including 2 wins over Alex martinez and a win over Lucas clay) and and holds a win over Slava borschev which has aged greatly. hes gonna run through elizario and probably get signed or contender series offer.

Freeman vs. Cunningham
AJ Cunningham, SUB, R3
weird matchmaking. freeman had a dog**** amateur career and hasn't been much better as a pro but at least hes got bellator experience. Cunningham coming off of a loss to a ****** opponent not even a year ago but its ok cuz freeman doesn't look like much of a threat at all. lots of pro and army experience for Cunningham.

Moriarty vs. Shell
Dan Moriarty, SUB, R2
shell seems well rounded with subs and Kos on the record but inconsistent in both pro and amateur career. moriarty has actually been fighting since 2013 but took a break as an amateur. also moriarty's style of mop-jitsu is funny lol

Curtright vs. Shields
Jeremiah Curtright, TKO, R2
dog**** amateur career and rough start to pro career makes me a little uneasy in picking curtrught but it looks like hes started to figure things out and has ko'ed 5 people in a row (if you count the boxing match). for shields seems kinda weird for him to be fighting someone with so much experience after a long layoff from amateur to pro and only beating a fellow debutant.

Cloudy vs. Nichols
Annette Nichols, DEC
good experience from cloudy but going with Nichols because she trains at glory and has a good record. cloudy has shown she cant really beat higher level competition but she can weed out the ones who are not. also glory has a ton of success when it comes to regional shows.

Umarov vs. Williams
Elmar Umarov, SUB, R1
Williams looks more like the supa hot fire guy than an actual fighter. umarov coming off of a ko loss but he should be better than Williams everywhere

Monroe vs. Wilson
Will Monroe, DEC
no real reasoning for going underdog. Monroe is more active and Wilson came off of a long layoff. Wilson has a great nickname tho

Highly vs. Mills
Jacob Highly, SUB, R2
its pretty obvious mills is a fight diver. not sure why you would do that as an amateur unless hes getting paid under the table

Carson vs. Harrell
Noah Harrell, SUB, R2
experience. weird matchmaking considering Harrell's experience

Medley vs. Moore
Zac Moore, DEC
no idea really. terrible record from Moore but at least hes losing to experienced amateurs. going him for experience

Heavenly New Predictions

Predictions: 6 of 9 Winners, 0 Perfect, 300 Points   |   52nd Place

Moore vs. Estrázulas
I have got Brant Moore at -205. He has a formal chin and an automatic gogoplata and also an excellent quivering palm death touch. Moore might reject the cutman.

Monroe vs. Wilson
I select Will Monroe at -205. He has a distinctive head coach. Monroe might incorporate the Octagon. I bet my life on it!

Highly vs. Mills
I love Jacob Highly at -925. He has a nasty ankle lock. Highly could whack the canvas. Вот, где собака зарыта!

Medley vs. Moore
I can't get enough of Jared Medley at -135. He has a radioactive touch of death and a zingy suplex. Medley ought to quarantine the canvas.

Umarov vs. Williams
I appoint Elmar Umarov at -1400. He has a final spinning back fist and a militant stamina. Umarov will likely weaken the cake.

Curtright vs. Shields
I select Sarek Shields at -195. He has a militant fallaway moonsault slam and a gifted mentality. Shields can maintain the corner man.

Moriarty vs. Shell
I am loyal to Dan Moriarty at -650. He has a xenotropic overhead chop and a qualified clawhold and also a talented randleplex. Moriarty is gonna victimize the deed. Fix und fertig!

Starks vs. Eliziário
I fancy William Starks at -800. He has a digital butterfly sweep. Starks ought to wrestle the counteragent.

Johnson vs. Mota
I embrace Charles Johnson at -225. He has an accurate check hook and a poignant omoplata and also a scintillating crucifix. Johnson can grapple the cage.

Cloudy vs. Nichols
I prefer Brittney Cloudy at -600. She has a yellow-bellied full guard. Cloudy is about to employ the opposition.

KyleH,

I think Cloudy is actually pretty good. She won that fight over Hailey Cowan and I don't think there was a debate about it. And the judges somehow saw it the other way. She's athletic, long and has good striking. Trains with a good camp too.

I know nothing about her opponent minus what I see on her tapology page. Seems like she's pretty good and has a good camp behind her as well. If she can get Cloudy down consistently she can win though.
