Another thing... Sara McMann is an elite wrestler who will get you down on the mat no matter what.  The women who have beaten her are grapplers and BJJ blackbelts.  I have to watch more footage on Aspen Ladd but is she known as a grappler or a striker?  I see that she has one armbar submission on her record but is BJJ part of her game or was that just a one off submission?  

Sara McMann might be a good dog in this situation if Aspen Ladd cannot handle McMann's wrestling and cannot constantly threaten with subs off her back.  Ladd could even get subbed herself during this fight so McMann might be a good dog.  I have to watch more footage on Ladd and I'll see what your comments are about herr.

Considering how Pereira did Strickland it makes me even more impressed with Bruno. I think he sleeps Gerald early on but Meerchaert always has that sneaky ground game

Thank god that McMann Ladd is cancelled. I am going to the fights so I guess that would have been a bathroom or beer break nevertheless it saves me the possible pain of having to watch that crap. Hopefully there are a couple fights that they haven't announced yet but this card is actually better off after losing that fight.

Alexa Grasso is one of few WMMA fighters who could make that top tier, but, like Tatian Suarez, it's just injury after injury.  Anyone have insight about her health now?

I always felt Grasso to small and not strong enough for the top of flyweight but of course flyweight isn’t the deepest division either so maybe

Vera vs. Cruz
Dominick Cruz, DEC
Father Time is undefeated, but Cruz is an amazing guy. The day will come when he can't compete at this level anymore, but damned if I'm going to bet against him at this stage of the game.

Onama vs. Landwehr
David Onama, TKO, R1
I don't like the short notice that Onama has, but it seems that when I use that as a guideline for picks I get burned.

So we're a week out and UFC.com doesn't even have the fights divided between main and prelims while ESPN does but they Jauregui/Lucindo on the main card with Hill/Godinez headling the prelims?!?

That would be weird.

Quinlan is out due to a failed drug test. USADA gets a lot of **** for their testing, so imagine how ******* juiced Quinlan is
