The problem with Klein is that he has nothing in reverse. Nothing off the back-foot. He's great at range but he's really bad in the pocket. I do think he can win here though, he does have good fast-twitch explosive doubles and his kicking game is going to destroy Mason's heavy lead leg. Watch the Davis fight. Mason gives up TD's easily and is not good off his back.

I'm looking to fade Mokeav at some point, I'm not sure if Johnson is the guy to do it, But being 21 years old in a shallow, But very high skilled division, He soon will get "expose" as he will fight a really good fighter before he should

But I do think Mokeav is a future champ, He just young and green, But he special,

There’s not that many fighters I actually dislike. I like most actually, but there is nothing to like about Pimblett. I I remember a classic where he said he’d finish Poirier in the first round. But he stepped up his game today when he said that Jordan is scared🤣

All I’m saying that if there is one guy I’m sure a ufc fighter wouldn’t be scared of its the bowl cut looking ass guy who weighs 200lbs when he’s not fighting

I probably sound salty because I kind of am. I just watched one of Paddy’s fights last night and it still boggles my mind as to why he’s so talked about. His trash talk doesn’t even sound good

McCann vs. Goldy
Molly McCann, DEC
Goldy upset wouldn’t surprise me, she’s only 2-1 in the UFC but so was Laura Fritzen... Might change my pick tbh based off how confident Meatball will be and the pure muscle of Goldy might win her a boring clinch/wrestling split

woooooo baby i have no idea how that beard kept Craig from sleeping but Gus hasn’t been at 205 in way too long, Krylov since 2015 has been fighting with a chip on his shoulder and considering where he’s from and how his Kiev gym kicked him out and he had to move to Moscow... things might be bad for Gus here

Jones vs Klein potential upset

Predictions: 7 of 14 Winners, 2 Perfect, 400 Points   |   Tied for 3666th

The thing that will make the difference in this fight is if Klein has improved his footwork and is to land early. From what I’ve seen on Jones struggle with the southpaw stance in his last fight and he hasn’t shown the ability to get his head off the center line. 

The straight left shot in particular is the one he does not see well. His instinct is to shell and swing an open hook in defense from what I gathered. I have Klein and Rosa on a two pick parlay since they both have styles that give them a decent shot at a finish. +1940 on DK. $50.6 gets you 1K. Hedge a pick 4 with your choice and implied profit margin is pretty sweet... definitely fights I would place live bets on as well.

No way is that beard surviving the punches Jiri took CLEAN and brushed off, can’t picture Craig going for takedowns maybe just in the clinch and Volkan is fighting for his job at this point

Someone is getting finished. Either Klein welts, or he gets the highlight reel.

Predictions: 9 of 14 Winners, 4 Perfect, 565 Points   |   Tied for 1301st

Blaydes vs. Aspinall
Tom Aspinall, SUB, R1
It's pure bias but I don't think it's unreasonable to predict a submission from Tom Aspinall. I wasn't expecting him to win via sub against Andrei Arlovski and Alexander Volkov either so why not again?

Pimblett vs. Leavitt
Paddy Pimblett, DEC
Honestly, this is a closer fight than the odds suggest IMO. Paddy Pimblett should win but I can't see it being easy for him and Jordan Leavitt is certainly good enough to put him in danger at times. Paddy is rightfully the favourite but I for one wouldn't risk putting him in a parlay or anything.

On a more trivial note, I've just taken a closer look at Tom Aspinall's page and I love the fact that his main picture is from back in his Full Contact Contender days lol! Pretty much every other month or so, FCC will brag about how Aspinall used to fight on their shows or if they have a Heavyweight they're trying to hype, you can guarantee they'll market them as Aspinall 2.0. I get it's a great point for a small promotion like that but the receptiveness of it got quite amusing after a while.

posted in the wrong thread lol. Actually more intriguing matchups then you would think on paper. Some real vitriol between Pimblett/Leavitt which is kind of hilarious. In the main event, I really want to see Aspinall tested and extended over a few rounds to know where he really is. In terms of betting, some deserved favourites but damn some of them are absolutely juiced which is

Main Card Picks

Predictions: 11 of 14 Winners, 6 Perfect, 715 Points   |   Tied for 102nd

1. Aspinall - confidence 70%
Blaydes is a great wrestler, but he is used to fighting heavy weights with poor takedown defence, and even then has struggled to finish fights. Aspinall should be too fast, too mobile, too strong and too good. I could see a finish in round 2/3. My only concern is if Aspinall gets stuck on bottom and decides to stay there instead of getting up and try for submissions off his back. But I think he is too smart to do that.


2. Hermansson - confidence 60%

Curtis is great, but I think takedowns from Jack are different from takedowns from Rodolfo Vieira. Jack wrestled to a close decision with Khamzat recently in a wrestling match and I think he will get Curtis down and control him, then get off damage.


3. Paddy - Confidence 80%
Cmon guys this is paddys setup fight. Easy win any way he wants. Leavitt has poor cardio, poor striking, average wrestling and equal level of jiu-jitsu. So how does he win, don't see it.

4. Oezdemir - Confidence 75%
This is the fight where Craig gets exposed. Oezdemir has good fight IQ, good take down defence and good power. He is not going to follow Craig to the ground. It's curtains for Craig.


5. Molly - Confidence 70%
Molly will have better pace, pressure and cardio. Her boxing is good and Hannah is not submitting anyone outside of Emily ****mire on the ground. Easy decision win for Molly. Setup fight and Only Fans fade.

2. Good to see people acknowledging Mason Jones is massively overvalued.
