Prediction Comments

Predictions: 8 of 14 Winners, 4 Perfect, 515 Points   |   Tied for 2009th

Luque vs. Muhammad II
Vicente Luque, DEC
i think belal pushes early and luque tries to slow things down and conserve energy while countering.

Borralho vs. Omargadzhiev
Gadzhi Omargadzhiev, TKO, R2
no idea what to make of this and no idea why it's co-main. i'm gonna take the russian guy even though caio seems like a decent prospect himself.

Fialho vs. Baeza
Andre Fialho, TKO, R2
i'll take a flyer here and guess fialho's chin holds up better.

Bueno Silva vs. Wu
Mayra Bueno Silva, DEC
wu throws everything early and then fades.

Sabatini vs. Laramie
Pat Sabatini, SUB, R2
odd matchup just because of pat's skillset and tj coming off a sub loss, feels like they wanna push another philly guy.

Lazzez vs. Loosa
Mounir Lazzez, DEC
still got high hopes for mounir despite the bodykick loss, he's super smooth. thinking he plays it safe and stays outside while loosa makes the most of his short notice opportunity and crashes in.

Clark vs. Knight
William Knight, DEC
r1 will be clark pushing hard for td and probably getting one or two. r2 staring contest?. r3 will be knight walking forward swinging from the hips. split decision.

Länsberg vs. Kianzad II
Pannie Kianzad, DEC
pannie could certainly get stuck fighting at ranges that are undesired, but i think age/activity/volume can still win her rounds here.

Klose vs. Jenkins
Drakkar Klose, DEC
jenkins will probably have his moments standing, but i expect drakkar to be able to level change. xfactor is how healthy is he?

García vs. Ronson
Jesse Ronson, DEC
ronson coming off the steroid suspension has me concerned, but rafa's last opponent was just too green for the moment so i don't quite feel like he's put it all together yet.

Barnett vs. Buday
Martin Buday, TKO, R2
i think chris can win if he forces the grappling, but i expect he'll try to recreate the villante win and i think buday (without having seen much) is a couple steps up from gian.

Ogden vs. Leavitt
Jordan Leavitt, DEC
tempting to take sub based on matchup, but i feel like ogden is gonna be a pretty big test for leavitt and it'll end up in more of a blanketing type affair.

Hughes vs. Nunes
Istela Nunes, DEC
nunes figures to have the better overall skillset, but i'm not gonna discount hughes' heart so i think this will be a better showing than we've seen.

Alateng vs. Croom
Kevin Croom, DEC
not sure what to make of this one at all, i'll take size and reach i guess.

I was thinking about it and knight went from 220 all the way to 251 in only a few months. I’m sure he knows what he’s doing but ballooning up in weight by 30 lbs in only 2 months can’t be healthy right? Like this guy went from being able to make 205 to now not even being able to make it if he tried

At Ayyy, yeah probably. But I’ve also seen people cut 40 lbs in a training camp, we have idea what his casual walk around weight was. His last fight was originally for 205 iirc then it was a short notice(ish) replacement. I wouldn’t bet Knight, but hell he might actually look good tonight.

I wouldn’t trust Clark to tie his shoe, but my confidence in Knight is equally low. I think either knight gets tired and loses 2 and 3, or Clark gets stuck under stuff takedown.

I feel like clark is liable to get ko’ed anytime it’s on the feet. He’s quite a bad striker. I’m counting on him to wrestle the whole fight and get takedowns because knight has 0 idea how to stop them

He still tried to cut to 205 the time he missed.he put out a tweet about how he had been sick so was going into the weight cut 240 instead of his usual 225. Paraphrasing.

So this camp he knew he can be as big as he wanted. Fully hydrated, full belly, I don't think it's all crazy.hes probably been bulking up all he can.

Hmmm. It might get him a win here but HW is a terrible idea for him. He’s gonna be like Chris Barnett if he was jacked

Fialho vs. Baeza
Miguel Baeza, SUB, R2
I believe that the sports psychologist will be very useful for Baeza. Against Williams he made mistakes like wasting the entire first round trying leg locks, then in the second round he had a more intelligent game plan taking advantage of his leg kicks, but then in the third round he ended up knocked out when he decided to exchange punches in the pocket against Khaos Williams, the Williams' legs were already compromised by the leg kicks (Khaos in the post fight interview said that he hurt one of his calves in the fight camp) and if he did combinations of leg kicks with fists, in addition to avoiding the direct exchange of fists against a havy hitter like Williams (just what Beaza's coach had told him before the start of the third round) would have won by split decision (the judges' scorecards up to that point were 19-19, 19-19 and an 18 -20 for Williams). Against Sato, Baeza showed how complete he is as a fighter, proving that apart from being a striker he can also take the fight to the ground and get submissions. Fialho has considerable KO power and trains at Sanford MMA, but if Baeza fights smart and listens to his trainers I think he can get a submission in the second half of the fight.

Oh yeah, heavyweights a TERRIBLE idea for him. But a light heavyweight at 265 and quietly going to come in WAY heavier than we expected is some 4D chess ****.

@amettxpc my thoughts exactly. We're about to find out how good Baeza's fight IQ is here because they're pretty even on the feet but he has a clear advantage on the ground. If he comes in with the gameplan to take him down I think he'll get the SUB finish
