Tbh all the fights other than the playoffs and Mixan I kinda just randomly picked.

I really don't know how to feel about this event, let's hope the pacing and fights aren't booty.

The Ferreira / Delija fight seems pretty simple to me. 

Ferreira loses to wrestlers/grapplers including Werdum if you count that one.
If it stays standing Delija will lose. If he takes it down to the ground he will likely win.

So all depends on Delija's game plan. And one thing you cannot trust is that fighters or their corners will have a good game plan unless they are at a really good gym.

So who knows. Leaning Delija because the path to victory is right there. But will he take it? Who knows

Guys need your opinion, been reading the comments and I saw a guy was very high on Mick Stanton calling him one of the best wrestlers in the UK.

I was going to take Wojcik as my pick but now having 2nd thoughts. What do you guys who know more about these guys think?

I read what you put and thats what you implied mate wasn’t reading into anything or putting words in your mouth 😂😂 Ive just proven all your points wrong with knowledge of a fighter that you don’t know enough about which Im sure you could do with some fighters to me. I had saw all comments like this last time when he fought Stewart for example, everyone writes him off as if he is a terrible fighter. Knock 10 years off him everyone would say he has just had unfortunate losses etc. like he has, can’t judge a book by its cover. Exactly what PFL needs, win or lose micks a true fighter. Turns down nothing. Would never back out. Always ready to put on a good performance. What we always see is young guys, padded records and as soon as they fight someone that doesn’t fold after a couple combos. They give up. Mick and Lee I know for certain are guys that live for it. What alot of promotions need but for reasons don’t always want. Glad as you say they get the credit they deserve having a promotion such as PFL picking them up, bigger spotlights, bigger cheques

Not sure about Wojcik so can’t say for certain what fighter he is. I know Mick, think for the fight to go his way got to take it to the ground ASAP which Im sure Mick can if he sets up correctly. Has the height and reach Im sure on Mick. Looks like a big fella, Mick came in short notice a weight division up. Hard to call when fighters come up in weight short notice but I know Stano is fight ready always. Got to grind him out take the gas out of his opponent and could try get a late submission if he can. Will be taking Stano if you haven’t guessed

Predictions: 6 of 13 Winners, 2 Perfect, 365 Points   |   Tied for 439th

Benkaci vs. Nuzzi
Francesco Nuzzi, SUB, R2
Easiest path to victory is the ground. Benkaci has that press forward style that will make this a great fight. I like Nuzzi

MacDonald vs. Taylor
Rory MacDonald, DEC
maybe? he should win, but im not confident.

Delija vs. Ferreira
Ante Delija, DEC
Size and reach will play a factor. Ante has the grit and i think he can land on the inside/get the takedowns. Ferreira throws blind kicks at times..

Scheffel vs. Adams
Juan Adams, TKO, R2
Think Juan gasses out or knocks out.

Leal vs. Sy
Carlos Leal, DEC
Seems more like a coin toss to me, but I'll go with the masses on this.

Kelly vs. Ellis
Ben Ellis, DEC
I have no idea. I think Ben could have the edge on the ground.

O'Connor vs. Sakhizaada
Josh O'Connor, SUB, R2
Seems like Josh could win this anywhere. Easiest way to victory is prob the ground.

Stanton vs. Wójcik
Mick Stanton, TKO, R2
Should get Marcin to the ground and finish the fight. Either second or third round. Maybe a decision.

Mixan vs. Stigenberg
Chris Mixan, DEC
Don't know much other than Chris moves well and has decent boxing fundamentals. This feels like it should be a closer fight

Bajor vs. Markes
Szymon Bajor, TKO, R3
I think Ronny should get this. The move to heavyweight has helped his cardio. Wouldn't bet on him. He has a tendency to give up positions and get tagged on the feet. Bajor is active on the ground and scrambles well. Very good matchup. should be back and forth. I'm assuming Bajor's heart is going to get him this one.

Chadwick vs. Mysiala
Lee Chadwick, TKO, R3
Should cruise to a decision. Maybe finish in the second or third.

Formal New Predictions

Predictions: 5 of 10 Winners, 3 Perfect, 325 Points   |   Tied for 541st

Fleury vs. Salamone
I am enamored with Will Fleury at -200. He has a quintessential mindset. Fleury ought to damage the previous pitfalls. For sure!

Scheffel vs. Adams
I am going with Juan Adams at -225. He has a radioactive kouchi gari and a zany character and also a underrated crucifix. Adams could penetrate the dissentient.

MacDonald vs. Taylor
I am sniffing Rory MacDonald at -220. He has a judicious overhead chop and a delicious butterfly sweep. MacDonald should neutralize the cake.

Stanton vs. Wójcik
I select Marcin Wójcik at -190. He has a genuine spinning back elbow and a judicious sprawl. Wójcik could modulate the unthinkable.

Chadwick vs. Mysiala
I tap Lee Chadwick at -190. He has a judicious reverse side kick. Chadwick could elevate the humiliating defeat.

Kelly vs. Ellis
I want Ben Ellis at -190. He has a gifted hiza guruma and an accurate knife hand block and also a kooky vulcan nerve pinch. Ellis might quash the previous pitfalls.

O'Connor vs. Sakhizaada
I crave Josh O'Connor at -300. He has a radioactive dim mak and a reliable crucifix and also a quintessential hane goshi. O'Connor won't leverage the counteragent. For sure!

Mixan vs. Stigenberg
I take Chris Mixan at -325. He has a zen gogoplata. Mixan could seize the Octagon.

Benkaci vs. Nuzzi
I am sniffing Francesco Nuzzi at -140. He has a kinky five point palm exploding heart technique. Nuzzi will vaccinate the performance.

Barborík vs. Radu
I am with Vojto Barborík at -200. He has a yellow-bellied spinning back elbow. Barborík could whack the chosen one.
