While what you say might be true about Barbosa (do we have any info about how long he's been preparing for this return and who he's been training with?), a big issue BJJ guys face transitioning is cardio related. Even guys like Maia who did it for a long time couldn't fix their cardio, Vieira is facing similar issues.

Lastly, Umarov's main thing is his grappling, yes, but there's no reason he shouldn't be more proficient than Lucas on the feet. I'm expecting it to be very ugly, but he should do enough to get the job done if he keeps it standing.

I think a lot of people on here are missing the reason for the odds being what they are.

For example Silvera being a favourite over Akmedov. It's because he is better on the feet, has a decent ground game and won't get submitted and has stellar cardio. Unless Akmedov submits him early which isn't going to happen Akmedov will slow down and by round 3 he will be gassed. His cardio isn't getting better with age and both will be juiced up.

Another one, Hamlet is favourite over Cory because he was beating him for 2 rounds before gassing in round 3. This is not likely to happen again as he will pace himself better.

Finally Barbosa is about as elite as it gets on the ground and is from a good gym. From what I've heard he is decent on the feet amd it only needs to hit the ground once and its over. Umarov is not, and I repeat, not a Dagestani wrestler. He is an American short notice fighter and is very likely going to get subbed pretty quick

No idea what to make of Sebie he is probably trash and deserves to be an underdog.

Nah those are all ******** odds. Only one that makes sense is Silveria but why is he a bigger favorite over Akmedov than he was over Hamlet? Makes zero sense

I don't have any info how long he has been training but i was seeing pictures training with brent primus, and yes you are very correct about the cardio issues with the bjj guys i'm most scared about this.

Not confident in Espinosa or Pettis. I think they both win but Jackson is decent and I think Pettis is half checked out and could retire

Jackson is from my area.  He is way out of his class here.  I fear this is a check fight for him.

Trendy New Predictions

Predictions: 8 of 9 Winners, 5 Perfect, 525 Points   |   Tied for 226th

Akhmedov vs. Silveira
I am going with Josh Silveira at -205. He has a meritorious bolo punch. Silveira shall drop the chosen one.

Aubin-Mercier vs. Martinez
I am going with Olivier Aubin-Mercier at -240. He has a homemade fallaway moonsault slam and a jinxed stamina. Aubin-Mercier could blast the ring announcer.

Nunes vs. Potter
I go for Marcelo Nunes at -330. He has a yucky crossface. Nunes is about to blast the masterpiece. Believe in yourself!

Hendricks vs. Hamlet
I favor Marthin Hamlet at -150. He has a wondrous osoto gari. Hamlet could vaccinate the previous pitfalls.

Sebie vs. Babulaidze
I am all over Itso Babulaidze at -130. He has a tremendous facebuster. Babulaidze might outsmart the dissentient.

Barbosa vs. Umarov
I embrace Lucas Barbosa at -140. He has a brash inverted atomic drop. Barbosa will seize the unthinkable.

Espinoza vs. Jackson
I lean towards Elvin Espinoza at -380. He has a nutty inverted atomic drop. Espinoza can operate the feat.

Zurcher vs. Jimenez
I am enamored with Brahyan Zurcher at -410. He has a delusional knife hand block and a hot oshi-dashi. Zurcher could gargle the cutman.

Pergande vs. Quiles
I have got Alexei Pergande at -365. He has a sincere full nelson. Pergande should bully the ring announcer.

Wilkinson vs. Monte
I believe in Rob Wilkinson at -310. He has a jarring attitude. Wilkinson will likely usurp the unthinkable.
