I'm against the Tapology majority on a few of the main fight- Show how the PPV is great when I'm disagreeing this the majority of 3 of 5 of the main card bout, Mean good matchup, I'm more 50-50 on Benny vs Gamrot btw

Im on Makhachev to beat Oliveira, The last time Oliveira fought a wrestler was Kevin Lee, Lee was winning on top before getting submetted like Lee alway does, Shouldn't Makhachev just do the same thing, But not get submetted, A great top  beats a bottom in MMA most of the time in MMA. And I don't know the last time Oliveria fought a wresler with great cardio and great jiu-jitsu also

I think Dillashaw beat Sterling, Dillashaw is Jon Jones of Battamweight, A drug cheat, A massive ****, But also clearly one of the best to ever do it, I also think Dillashaw will not repeat the same mistake Yan did, If Sterling can hang on to Dillashaw back for 3 out of the 5 round, and not get knock out, Kudos to him, But I doubt it, Sterling has no power, And 3 rounds of  cardio at best, And when Sterling  gasses in the 3rd or 4th round, He getting slept shortly after

I also have Belal Muhamed to beat Sean Brady, Sean Brady has no hand, Belal Muhamed has a 90+% takedown defence and has some decent hands in the few fights I seen of his, Shouldn't Belal just kept the fight on the feet and box him up

I have Yan to clearly beat O short for osteoporosis O'Malley, By KO, Yans a savage and is the best fight at 135 at the moment, Yan just **** up his carrer with a few bad decsion, But he still the best at the division

I think Gamrot beat Beniel by having better cardio, More durable and is impossible to wrestle, Benny gas when it hard fight, Also would't suprise me if Gamrot expose Benny chin, Benny run at lightweight, Not many fighter could expose the chin, I think Gamrot has the skills to do it

This would make sense if Belal had better hands than Brady but he doesn't,  not even close.  Sean is a very good striker, he hasn't shown that much but to say Belal no hands Muhammad has the advantage there is borderline disrespectful. Belal has 90% TDD while fighting nothing but strikers,  he's never fought a good let alone an elite grappler yet.. Brady will take him down whenever he wants

Wrestling: Brady by a mile
BJJ: Brady by two miles
Strength and athleticism: Brady by 3 miles

Both of those fights will be main card,  no doubt.  All are top 15 ranked, three of them top 10 and two of them top 5

Just saying, Kevin Lee got 2 out of 3 takedown, Also got 6 minutes and 30 seconds of control in a fight which went 28 seconds into the 3rd round,  I think Islam can replicate that, Do it better then Kevin Lee, And not get submitted or gas out , I want Charles to win, He's one of my favorites fighter, But I don't think he wins unless he submits Islam of his back( which could happen), 

Also, Belal has better boxing then Brady, Brady got outbox by Michael Chiesa, While Belal had a 50-50 striking fight with Vicente, Belal is good, He just boring

Islam has never fought anyone as aggressive as Olives in the striking who also doesn't fear being taken down. styles make fights, and this is a bad stylistic matchup for Islam. you can't go from Dan Hooker and Bobby Green to Charles Oliveira and me think you're gonna win; there's levels. the champ has a name

Islam is gonna get submitted on the first panic sloppy takedown he throws. Oliveira is rapidly improving with each fight, and he did end up submitting Kevin Lee

how can you say that Belal has never fought an elite grappler when he literally just fought Demian Maia a few fights ago? there's no way you watch MMA

I can see that so clearly. because we gotta remember that all the pressure is on Islam. his whole team, everyone around him, the entire mma community has been telling him he's gonna be champion for years. now's the time; oh and btw it's in front of his home crowd. Olives is gonna walk in there cool as ice and pick a jittery Islam apart

Islam’s only lost was a KO loss (to a can) but if Oliveira can defend tds and light up Islam I have a feeling that Islam shoots and gets stuck in a guillotine. Either that or Chuckie lands an accurate left hook and finishes him like Chandler.
