Strickland vs. Pereira
Alex Pereira, TKO, R3
I'm hoping Strickland gets more active early, after he was disappointed with himself in his last fight. Thus releasing Pereiras blows into his entire body.

they try to create some hype for Perreira, but I think Stickland win this.

I'm a Pereira fanboy, but age and wear & tear started to show in his last fight with Silva. They had Strickland at +160 after a bunch of people dumped on the opening line of Pereira, so I took Strickland. Seem like crazy odds to me. Sean is a very well-rounded fighter and has a great camp and they'll have a good gameplan.

Careful matchmaking being done by the ufc, I’m all for it though because I wanna see izzy vs pereira 3 and it’s most likely the only way we’ll get it

Just look at how Xtreme Couture gameplanned Ngannou for Gane (on 1 leg nonetheless). Should be a similar scenario. Coaches there are no dummies, plus I'm not sure the casual fans recognize how decent Strickland's grappling is and that he's brown belt BJJ?

There is no way Strickland wrestles Pereira. Pereira is the exact fighter Strickland says he likes to fight and I think they’ll battle it out in the stand up.

I also have to add, I don’t think this fight is the UFC trying to create hype. The winner between Strickland and Pereira, especially if done in impressive fashion, will face the Adesanya next (if Adesanya is still the champion). More worrying for me about this fight is that it stays on the schedule.

Sean Strickland will win this lol. He’s a black belt and the first person with grappling that pereira has fought. It’s probably gonna be dull but Sean will just wrestle**** the entire fight

Team Pereira! But Strickland's winning. He will not stand and bang with Alex, but rather use his long, stiff jab to close the distance and find a takedown.

Predictions: 9 of 13 Winners, 3 Perfect, 595 Points   |   Tied for 1273rd

I like Pereira a lot but i could see sean winning this however if sean doesnt try to wrestle Alex he will most likley lose, sean is very flatfooted very similar to Artem Vakhitov which alex defeated in a Lightheavyweight title match at glory ,the first time artem took a lot of shots into his guard which you cant do in MMA. Sean also relies on his jab but alex has a massive reach advantage. 
And many people say that Sean is a brown belt in BJJ. No belt in BJJ will give you wrestling if you cant take the fight down you cant use your grappling. 
I think sean will get touched up a bit on the feet then will shoot and well see from then.

I haven't been super impressed with Alex so far. He got controlled by a smaller man in his debut, and Bruno got him with some good shots, but I feel like he's been able to get away with some **** due to one simple fact. ALEX IS ******* HUGE MAN! OH MY GOD HE'S SO HUGE!

Strickland sub is a good bet. If he gets a takedown I bet he finishes pereira
