goddammit, if Granger actually had skills and a killer instinct she could be really good with her frame and strength.

Daebak wasn't Bryan Battle ex-fat dude? He was probably a cardio machine because he was undersized for Middleweight and had still his body adapting. against Gore you can see he has a lot more flabby skin than most UFC fighters. I think Battle is still growing into his body and we will see him in his full potential here, or atleast sparks of it.

I can speak about this a little from experience too lmao, I'm expecting Battle to seem relatively more powerful here.

Outside of Battle cutting into his lean muscle mass with this weight cut and gassing after 5 minutes, he should have this.

I hear the love for Sato but frens...he can't wrestle. Like, at all. That's why the odds are what they are. I would actually love for Sato to win because I don't think Japanese MMA is represented very well in UFC at the moment, but I don't see it.

foppa420 Kyoji Horiguchi and Hiromasa Okigubo I think are the most legit that I've seen
I don't follow japanese MMA so I dunno if there is any good ones coming up.

Really looking at the odds today, there's serious value on both Usman and Santos. Not saying either wins, but I definitely think both have better shots than their current odds indicate.

Final picks. I had Luque at first, but thinking more about it, he didn't seem very good trying to take the initiative against Belal, and that last win over Ponzinibbio should give Geoff the momentum needed to come out and perform here. If both men are at their best, I think Neal is slightly better (especially when you compare both their fights vs Belal).

Also think that Pauga vs Usman could go either way because Pauga does leave his chin up to be hit and Usman is unpredictable when striking, plus he's a big guy. I just think that Usman isn't as good a fighter as Pauga and unless he lands a Hail Mary blow, he isn't winning this fight, I don't think.

Predictions: 7 of 10 Winners, 2 Perfect, 510 Points   |   Tied for 250th

Santos vs. Hill
Jamahal Hill, TKO, R1
I really think Santos is just comin out here for the paychecks anymore, last few have been staring contests he doesn't seem to want it. And thankfully I don't think Hill is the type to get caught in that trap. Hill should be coming out here looking to commit murder and if Santos is smart hell bring a singlet.

Luque vs. Neal
Vicente Luque, TKO, R2
I just don't think Neal is quality, I also question his desire to really even be in there. Heavily favoring Luque hopefully he doesn't make any silly bad IQ plays

Pauga vs. Usman
Mohammed Usman, TKO, R2
Rocking with the true heavyweight here, they both looked about the same size at weigh ins but I'm sticking to my guns here

Miller vs. Walker
Brogan Walker, DEC
again who really cares? just not interested in female fights who gets the split decision nod here

Sakai vs. Spivak
Sergey Spivak, DEC
Spivak certainly is the A side and should be winning this fight however these lines are a joke I think the fight will play out much closer then it idicates

Lipski vs. Cachoeira
Ariane Lipski, DEC
Who even cares, just wanna see catch a cheater get violently knocked out

Oleksiejczuk vs. Alvey
Michał Oleksiejczuk, TKO, R3
Don't think Sam goes out smilin here, I think he's live so long as he still has the hunger in him gaging if he does tho is difficult

McKinney vs. Gonzalez
Terrance McKinney, TKO, R1
VIOLENCE VIOLENCE VIOLENCE only question is how Mckinney will do it

Sato vs. Battle
Bryan Battle, SUB, R1
Somebody will get finished here...Battle should get it done here but not confident in either guy

This week looks like there are quite a few good dogs, but have a feeling most of them will probably lose anyway.

I don’t even think it was that big of a deal what happened with Neal. His weapon was registered and we don’t even know how drunk he really was. Ironically Pereira was also dealing with DUI issues prior to fighting Ponzinibbio.

Not sure about some of these picks, Luque vs Neal is close but I’m astonished at how few people picked Neal, I also think Cory McKenna is bad so I’m fading her against granger but hey it’s wmma so who knows

Prediction Comments

Predictions: 8 of 10 Winners, 1 Perfect, 495 Points   |   Tied for 265th

Santos vs. Hill
Jamahal Hill, TKO, R4
I think both guys are gonna play it safe for a little bit because they know they both have extreme power. Santos may be washed but Hill needs to watch out because it could be sweet dreams for him if he steps into the pocket too fast. Hill gets this done though.

Luque vs. Neal
Vicente Luque, SUB, R2
I just can't back Neal anymore. I think he's a fantastic fighter but only when he's fully mentally in it. It seems like he is always talking about taking a break and even calling it quits sometimes and now he's stepping into the octagon with Luque. It could go really bad for junk. If Neal wins this, it's probably gonna be by knockout or decision. Luque is extremely hittable and Neal packs some power.

Pauga vs. Usman
Zac Pauga, DEC
I wanna say this in the best way possible. Mo Usman is one of the worst heavyweights I've ever seen fight. The worst UFC heavyweight would wreck this guy and it wouldn't even be close. In here cause of his brother. Zac seems like he has some potential if he decides to stay in the heavyweight deli soon but I think he's going back down to 205 if he gets a UFC contract.

Miller vs. Walker
Juliana Miller, DEC
I see that Walker is the dog of the week but I can't back her. Miller is very young in the game but Walker isn't gonna be the one to expose her in this spot. Miller will be stronger than Walker and can push a pace for longer than her. Miller and Pauga should win the TUF Championship.

Sakai vs. Spivak
Sergey Spivak, TKO, R1
I'm not sleeping on Sakai because I know he still has huge power despite being wrecked his past few fights. I'm taking Spivak to get a quick takedown and ground and pound him.

Lipski vs. Cachoeira
Ariane Lipski, SUB, R2
I don't know if I've ever picked Cachoeira to win a fight. She's so bad. Gets hit like 30 times a minute and just likes to scrap without being somewhat technical. Lipski looked good against Mandy Bohm but that shows nothing. I think Lipski could possibly get a submission here.

Oleksiejczuk vs. Alvey
Michał Oleksiejczuk, TKO, R2
I want Sam Alvey to win so bad but he's gonna probably get knocked out again. It would be hilarious if he wins and gets another contract from the UFC. Let's go Sam!

McKinney vs. Gonzalez
Terrance McKinney, TKO, R1
Both are cool guys. I always root for fighters that interact with fans on social media because it's great to see. Terrance should knock Erick out in round 1 but if this gets out of R1 I wanna see how McKinney does because I'm worried about him fading. Erick is nothing special but he can bang. Should be fun.

If Battle stays away from the left hook from Sato then he should win this fight with ease. Battle can get a takedown and sub Sato.
