Predictions: 8 of 11 Winners, 1 Perfect, 440 Points   |   Tied for 120th

Got $10 on a 11-leg parlay between PFL and Bellator to win $140. Weakest legs imo are Adams and Lara, maybe Nallo and Jeffery if you're pushing it.

Rest is just can crushes like Wade, Ferreira, Goltsov, Bruno, Brennan, Delija and Tokov. Obviously I don't condone putting obscene favorites in parlays, but made an exception this time since I really don't see any of them losing their fights.

FIGHT PREDICTIONS

Predictions: 7 of 11 Winners, 4 Perfect, 475 Points   |   Tied for 43rd with 19 others

Cappelozza vs. Scheffel
Bruno Cappelozza, KO, R1
Usually my explanations are pretty in depth, but there is no point on this card. The PFL didn't even try to hide who they wanted in the playoffs. Cappelozza wins because he's better in every striking aspect.


Pettis vs. Ray
Anthony Pettis, DEC
Stevie looked a bit behind in his debut, and I think a step up in competition is not going to help him here. Pettis is more well rounded and I think he'll get a 30-27 UD. I think it's Showtime's year this year as long as he doesn't get screwed by the judges.


Ferreira vs. Abreu
Renan Ferreira, TKO, R1
Hard to not pick this as the outcome considering his last two fights have lasted less than a minute. Abreu is tough, but he'll eventually get caught with something, I'm thinking a knee to the body, that will fold him.


Wade vs. Bochniak
Chris Wade, DEC
He's better everywhere; Kyle is tough, but will get out-volumed and lose 30-27

Delija vs. Graves
Ante Delija, TKO, R2
Another setup fight, Graves is old and only has wins against mediocre competition (Seumanutafa and Hood are okay I guess). Ultimately his only shot is a lucky punch.


Jenkins vs. Ekson
Bubba Jenkins, DEC
This is actually a competitive fight. I think Ekson is extremely underrated, and on a full camp, I might have been tempted to pick him, but Bubba looked great against Bochniak, so it's hard to go against him here. I'll say 29-28 Bubba.


Goltsov vs. Greene
Denis Goltsov, TKO, R2
I know Greene was in the UFC and was doing okay for a bit but I think he is so below average as a heavyweight. I reckon Goltsov will try to grapple a bit and if he gets Maurice against the cage he'll have an easy takedown and Maurice won't be able to get up. Goltsov gets a G and P TKO in the second.


Palmer vs. Moraes
Lance Palmer, DEC
The closest fight on the card for sure. I faded Palmer against Wade and it worked but I think he'll come back stronger in this fight. I don't think Sheymon is as good as Wade and in reality a win over Salmon isn't too great. I think Lance will be moving forward a lot and will be able to snap his 3 fight skid. 29-28 to The Party.


Kei vs. Adams
Juan Adams, TKO, R2
Bottom of the barrel heavyweights here. It's hard to go against the physical attributes of Adams when the skills are quite even. He's rallied off some good wins since leaving the UFC so I'll side with his level of competition over K9's.


Flores vs. Kudo
Alejandro Flores, DEC
Kudo looked great in his last fight and arguably should have won. But so did Flores. Bolaghi is a strong opponent and Flores was able to out point him to a comfortable decision. One of the closest fights on the card and Kudo is definitely a live dog but I think Flores' experience carries him to a 29-28 UD.


Loughnane vs. Huskic
Brendan Loughnane, DEC
They must feel bad that Brendan got cracked during his first fight. Quite possibly the most obvious setup fight on the card. He might get a finish but he doesn't have many and the one thing that Ago does have is toughness. Brendan 30-27 and a free trip to the playoffs.

I read it wrong my bad, I thought he was referring to two different parlays. Ya Adams is a lot more likely to blow it up. But I have a gut feeling Chris Wade chokes, it's why I left him out of my parlays.

I can't get over the Dizy and Ospanov where he had trouble getting going early. Especially Ospanov where he didn't really throw a whole lot on the feet. Bochniak is scrappy and will bring it from the start. If Chris doesn't initiate the wrestling from the start(which he hasn't in a few of his fights recently) he might lose rounds on the feet purely from volume. Not confident enough in Bochniak to pick him on Tapology, but scared enough to avoid him in my parlay. I could totally end up looking like a dumb**** and Bochniak gets wrestle****** again but whatever.

Ospanov is good tbh. Just inconsistent. He’s a very high level striker

PFL needs to do something about the commission about their judging

or **** the **** off. Oh, and give Clay his wins back. They keep robbing dude. Pisses me off, no longer will I invest time in a worthless C grade talent pool promotion that can't even score fights correctly. 
Heck, the heavyweight headlining this card got treated like a child by Jiri a light heavyweight.

From what I heard all athletic commissions have been given explicit instructions on how fights should be judged. The uproar about judging recently seems to be effective.

You do know, PFl has the same judges as the UFC, Blame the commission, Not the promotion, It stupid to blame PFL for something that is out of their hands

Going to bet only a few spots in the PFL. Plan to avoid any fight thats likely decision because we all know about judging in PFL.

So no Pettis, no Bubba, No Palmer, No Wade, No Loughnane or Flores for me. Even not sure about Ferreira. 

Will pick Capellozi, Ante, Goltsov, maybe Ferreira. Thats it.

Judging

I know everyone says the athletic commission picks the judges so we shouldn't blame PFL, but the thing is the judging in pfl is consistently awful.... So even if it's not PFL picking the judges, then that just means the athletic commission keep sending them **** judges lol??... I've never seen any other organization have so many consistent issues with judging.

It could be because they continuously do shows in Florida Georgia and Texas. Everyone complains about the texas commission to begin with. Never heard good things about Florida. They licensed Holyfield to fight FFS. and Georgia? No idea but i cant imagine its a great commission either. Could have some hand in their ****** decisions.
