At 29, Chito has never been finished in 7 losses. Quite impressive considering the shark tank he is in.

Meerschaert vs. Jotko
Krzysztof Jotko, DEC
I can't be sure when gm3 is fighting... but Jotko should get this done? Makhmud should've also gotten it done in all fairness. His tdd should be enough to keep it where he's comfortable, standing, and there he should be able to drag Gerald into a point-fight and edge the cards.

Font vs. Vera
Marlon Vera, TKO, R2
Vera is going to win this because he too much of a savage, Jose Aldo is one of the GOAT, But i don't like how he kept getting dropped 4 month ago, Chito will sleep him because he more dangerous then Aldo

Elkins vs. Connelly
Tristan Connelly, TKO, R2
Darren Elikins took to much damage and the way he got slept by Cub Swanson is a bad look

da Silva vs. Figueiredo
Daniel da Silva, DEC
Why are people picking Figueredo, Don't people realise he sucks yet

Romanov vs. Sherman
Alexandr Romanov, SUB, R2
Sean O'Malley would be jealous of Romanov booking, Dude had 5 fights in the UFC, And 4 of them don't belong in the UFC, I think he one of the bigger can crusher I seen in the UFC, I think it kinda lame, Romanov should fight people who aren't ****

Vera has to be the current fighter with my favourite style. Front kicks and teeps, clinch elbows, trips, sick guillotine, flipping people off. I think he finishes Font later on after some warming up

I think Font is too good for Vera. Too evasive, counters are too good.

Chito will be hard to beat in 5 rounders, Chito has the Petr Yan problem of giving up the 1st round, So in 3 rounders you just have to steal the 2nd or 3rd and you win, That how Jose Aldo beat Chito, taking the 3rd round by just holding his back, In 5 rounder then have to take 2 out of the last 4 rounds, so it harder, The style can still bite you in the arse like it did to Petr Yan in the Sterling rematch, Sterling back control gave him the 2nd and the 3rd, But it less likely to do so, Because they're 2 round to steal


@morales, Thank Mate, Appreciate it, I've been watch MMA for years now so I do know it, My picks don't reflect it alway because picking fight, Everyone is kind of equally bad

Just wondering, @Damien, mpt to be rude but you say Chito has a better chance in a 5 rounder but pick him by 2nd round TKO? Font has never been finished by strikes. Bold prediction, but interesting thoughts because I was thinking the same thing in a way.


One thing Chito I doubt will have to worry about his Font taking him down, Chito gives up takedowns very easily and tends to get comfortable fighting off his back using his elbows.
