Clayton Carpenter Vs Steve Erceg
Clayton Carpenter TKO R2
Great fight on paper here. Carpenter is the hype machine so I’ll go with him. I’m not buying him to be a generational talent or anything but he looks very solid


Ozzy Diaz vs Joseph Pyfer
Ozzy Diaz KO R1
Ozzy looks like a good striker. I can see why he lost to Reyes in 30 seconds though, he leaves a lot of openings. With that being said I think he’s technical enough on the feet to KO the very sloppy Pyfer


Anton Turkalj vs Acácio dos Santos
Anton Turkalj KO R1
From what I’ve seen from watching Anton is he is a wild man. On the feet and on the ground, I haven’t seen or heard of Acácio before but that might mean he KOs Anton in the first round. It’s a very real possibility, Anton takes a lot of risks. I still think he scores a highlight reel KO

With all due respect to Luke Rockhold, Scheffel got the best chin in the game

I think Farid Basharat gets it done by TKO.  Both brothers are very talented so I hope this guy gets in there too.  Javid was very impressive in his UFC debut against a very game Trevin Jones.
