Actually really surprised so many seem to like Priscilla Catchabeating in what is likely to be her last UFC fight.

Lipski has her everywhere, in any way she wants. Even with the weight miss

why is it likely to be her last fight? she's not going to get cut if she loses. dana loves her and she puts on fun fights. wmma fighters typically dont get cut after a 1 fight losing streak either if they bring excitement to the table.

Sato is low volume, has some power but it's over represented because his KOs are against very chinny fighters. Sato is not good when pressed, especially going backwards. His takedown defence is not good either.

Battle will be much bigger, stronger, makes few mistakes and has good IQ. He has high volume on the feet and great cardio. His wrestling is good and his BJJ is quite good too. 

Sato is going to get out volumed, outpaced, overwhelmed and taken down and controlled.

All the sharp betting money is coming in on Battle and there is a reason why. Battle by decision looks like a good play

I honestly don’t believe Battle wins this, Battle is good but he hasn’t done anything that makes me go wow this man is legit, he’s beaten two TUF fighters (bottom tier competition) and was almost put out by Gore, Sato has a lot of pop in his strikes and accurate, hence why Nelson didn’t even wanna bother striking with him, he’s looking to bounce back from his loss vs Nelson, and I’m sure Sanford spent majority of his camp improving his TDD and ground game, considering Battle a lock here is crazy, if anything I believe Sato is the safest dog on this card after Walker

"wrestling is good" yea you just showed your iq level

he was letting non ufc level guys have plenty of moments against him

and what about satos bjj? gunnar nelson had his back for the whole fight and didnt sub him. you realize thats super impressive

and funny you talk about competition when satos losing to top 15 guys and battles losing to negative regional fighters

Sato has never lost to someone worse than Battle and Battle hasn't beat anyone better than Sato. Battle doesn't even have the proverbial punchers chance. He's a volume guy he doesn't have **** you power, he doesn't have the bjj in his back pocket. Sato has to royally **** up for Battle to have any path to victory here. Beyond that Bryan's completely drained from his first real 170 cut, for a guy who basically wins fights from cardio that's a terrible sign.

Sato on the other hand looks healthy. Does have some of that **** you power and has seen everything Battle can do many times over. I had picked this to be a pedestrian decision for Sato but looking at Battle's weigh in I wouldn't be surprised if Sato shuts his lights off.

In saying that the UFC are interested in Battle winning this fight. Without a doubt Sato has been called up because the UFC view this as a winnable fight for Battle. But we saw how well that worked out for Ricky a few weeks back.... expect much the same here.
