The only way I see du plessis winning is a early finish, he definitely not a huge prospect simply over hyped. the way du plessis darts into range so recklessly, the way he leads with leg kicks, and so much more technical errors du plessis makes. I think the counters will be there all night for brad who is the better striker. I also see brad maybe getting a late TKO. Why? Du plessis is a massive MW and uses a lot of movement and throws everything behind his shots. I see du plessis slowing down in the later rounds of the fight and massively in round 3.this should give brad more opportunity to get the finish. Just have a strange feeling brad will get a round 3 TKO, but we will see tomorrow

@ryanQ
Not sure if I've ever disagreed with anyone more about one fight than I do with you on this. Tavares is the decision king. He's 2nd all time behind the GOAT of being overrated, GSP. Which means, Gonna Score Points.The future Decision Champ of all time, is gonna TKO Du Plessis? Edmen Shebazyan slept Tavares in Rd1. I am pretty sure Edmen is working at a Target in St Louis, MO and mowing yards on the weekend as a side hustle. Rhonda Rousey stopped answering his calls. That dude had Brad curled up in the cage sucking his thumb and pissing the bed in the fetal position before Jon Annick even had a chance to remind all of us that Edmen is the next Connor. 
That Brad Tavares is gonna sleep the guy who touched Trevon Giles on the forehead like one of those fake ass Preachers on TV who have people falling over shaking crazy on the ground, but Giles wasn't faking ****. Du Plessis ******* zapped him with the REAL hand of God. Giles woke up telling his coaches that he met his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ while he was out. Nah, you got a free trip to the Shadow Realm from the son of God reborn, Dricus Du Plessis. 

I will admit though, should have stuck with something short and sweet like Jesus. Dricus Du Plessis is a ******* nightmare to type on my phone every time. 

But hey, I don't know ****, my pick % is 60%. But Du Plessis's finish % is ******* 100% in 17 wins and maybe I'm wrong but no, no I'm definitely not. Du Plessis by fatality and uppercut to the spike bit down below. You Lose.

Prediction Comments

Predictions: 6 of 12 Winners, 2 Perfect, 350 Points   |   Tied for 3969th

Adesanya vs. Cannonier
Jared Cannonier, TKO, R2
Can't believe I'm doing this. TKO Ground and Pound 2nd round, vicious punch stumbles Izzy, Jared lands again, start continuing with vicious punches and elbows. & New. I don't know if Israel is one hundred percent focused on Jared here. Jared can connect clean and I think it happens.

Volkanovski vs. Holloway III
Alexander Volkanovski, SUB, R4
Rear Naked Choke. Crazy fight, I think Volk wins most exchanges due to his multiple looks. He starts taking down, clinching Max. Pressure, eventually sinks a choke. Statement.

Strickland vs. Pereira
Sean Strickland, SUB, R2
Rear Naked Choke after a bad transition.

Lawler vs. Barberena
Robbie Lawler, TKO, R2
Hooks stop a bloodied Barberena.

Munhoz vs. O'Malley
Sean O'Malley, TKO, R1
Insane combo lands, Kicks Knees, and finally straight punches put Pedro out cold. late round 1.

Riddell vs. Turner
Brad Riddell, DEC
30-27 Uni, I think Brad wicked underrated, I think frame/pressure inside frustrate Turner.

Cerrone vs. Miller II
Jim Miller, DEC
30-27x2 29-28 Uni, I think Jim takes this serious, I dont know if Cowboy has that killer instinct. Last time we seen it is when Anthony Hernandez insulted him.

Garry vs. Green
Ian Garry, TKO, R2
Closer fight on paper. I think Garry hurts Green and puts him out in round 2. Body kick to punches.

Tavares vs. Du Plessis
Dricus Du Plessis, DEC
29-28 Uni close fight but damage adds up on Brad.

Hall vs. Muniz
André Muniz, SUB, R1
RNC, Muniz hurts Hall on the feet, and jumps on that Neck.

Eye vs. Barber
Maycee Barber, DEC
Split Decision close fight Maycee gets another gift 29-28x2 28-29

Clark vs. Stoliarenko
Jessica-Rose Clark, DEC
30-27 Uni

Really confused by some of the picks you guys are sharing. 

1. I keep seeing Volk by KO. What in the pantheon of MMA has happened to give someone the belief that this will happen? Did you happen to watch Max vs Yair? No you couldn't have ever watched a Max fight. Hell you couldn't have ever watched any fight. Does anybody wanna tell me with a straight face that Volk hits anywhere close to as hard as Yair or Dustin? Step right up and try to convince me of this Uber Casual prediction.

2. Riddell is gonna KO a man that would be mistaken for Willy Wonka if they were walking down the street together. Why? Because Brad Riddell is a ******* Oompa Loompa Doobity Doo. Brad gonna wake thinking he's in Kalamazoo.

3. And the most egregious, "Tavares by TKO." Ummmmmm, Ive got nothing. I am just curious of what lead you to come up with each of these Casual-esque predictions? Is everyone here actually 12 and I just completely missed that? Are you all just trolling each other over and over and over and over?

The 2nd one is possible but 1 and 3 are just garbage takes. Don't take it personally, please. Just my opinion. There's absolutely nothing that's happened to lead anyone to come to either of those predictions. Well except for not actually knowing or watching fights every weekend, from start to finish and re-watch a couple of the best fights immediately again. Every weekend. All year. Death, taxes and fights on Saturday night.

OK I'm done rambling. Sorry I'm really ******* high. Ignore my 40 yr old man nonstop bs

Idk what’s got u so pressed, Tavares ko isn’t that outlandish. Win or lose du plessis has never been to a decision and leaves his chin up at all wild angles. He could totally blow his load and get finished late; I bet nobody thought Tavares would get a ko over jotko

I’m not expecting brad to land one big shot and put his lights out I’m expecting him to put volume on a gassed du plessis in the late rounds, yes he might go to decision but du plessis style is killed or be killed imo. I don’t think it’s a casual pick. I just think du plessis isn’t as good as people say, and I’m the causal for picking Brad that makes sense may the best man win, and at the end of the day who the **** cares lol.

Drake is a ******, he just bets on who has the most hype and doesn’t know **** about mma. I remember he lost like 500k on gaethje over oliviera lololol. I say lost but we all know stake just gives him money to throw
