Whittaker vs. Costa
Robert Whittaker, DEC
Bobby knuckles will style on costa maybe costa will hit a strong shot at some point that puts the crowd on edge but for the most part Whittaker will dominate everywhere this fight goes

Predictions: 10 of 10 Pending   |   Tied for 1st with 416 others

Rodriguez vs. Emmett
Josh Emmett, DEC
Emmett gets a lot of disrespect for no reason.

Pedro vs. Zhang
Tyson Pedro, TKO, R2
Back in the day zhang kinda had a chin issue. Pedro is a very tough debut. But i do see Zhang being a decent roster staple

Kara-France vs. Perez
Alex Perez, DEC
93-7🤣🤣🤣🤣 funny. Alex Perez is very underrated. I hope the betting line shows the confidence yall have for kara france

Jenkins vs. Shainis
Jack Jenkins, TKO, R2
Set-up fight. Shainis was getting smacked by regional dudes in cage titans.

Rodrigues vs. Ross
Kleydson Rodrigues, TKO, R2
Ross hit the jackpot. Hes lucky to be here. Kledson Rodrigues is miles ahead of this guy

Predictions: 10 of 10 Pending   |   Tied for 1st with 416 others

Makhachev vs. Volkanovski
Islam Makhachev, SUB, R2
Rooting heavily for Volk, but Islam has proven that he is elite. Volk's TDD hasn't been truly tested by anyone with Islam's level of grappling. I think Islam is too big, too strong, and too skilled to lose this one.

Whittaker vs. Costa
Robert Whittaker, DEC
Costa being unable to finish Old Man Luke is somewhat concerning. I think Whittaker will do his thing and 30-27 Costa with ease. Love both fighters so I'm excited for this one.

Pedro vs. Zhang
Tyson Pedro, TKO, R1
Zhang was defeated by Traskar Mozharov the fight faker. He's got a lot of experience for a 24 year old, but I question the quality of his competition.

Kara-France vs. Perez
Kai Kara-France, TKO, R3
Perez's weakness is grappling so this could be more competitive than I expect. However, KKF is the third best Flyweight in the world right now and he was looking great against Moreno before the liver kick. I expect him to bounce back here.

Jenkins vs. Shainis
Jack Jenkins, TKO, R1
Shainis the Stepping Stone gonna get KO'd.

Crute vs. Menifield
Alonzo Menifield, TKO, R1
Tough fight to predict but I trust Mennifield to do his thing and flatline Crute.

Rodrigues vs. Ross
Kleydson Rodrigues, TKO, R1
Shannon Ross is a tough bastard, but Rodrigues has a significant athleticism advantage and grappling advantage. My only real concern whether he will gas if he fails to stop Ross early.

Predictions: 10 of 10 Pending   |   Tied for 1st with 416 others

Rodriguez vs. Emmett
Yair Rodriguez, TKO, R4
Emmett gets a lot of unnecessary hate. I actually think he edged the Kattar fight. However Yair is a level above on the striking, if he defends the takedowns I think he scores a head kick KO

Kara-France vs. Perez
Kai Kara-France, DEC
91-9 is a little much but I think Kai is the better fighter and will win a 29-28 UD

Culibao vs. Baghdasaryan
Joshua Culibao, DEC
Cuilbao impressed me in his last fight, he looked polished. Melsik is pretty good on the feet as well but I think Culibao will win a tight decision

Predictions: 8 of 10 Pending   |   Tied for 1st with 416 others

Makhachev vs. Volkanovski
Islam Makhachev, DEC
Close fight but I think Makhachev can handle volkanovski in the ground maybe volk can outstrike him feet but makhachev has wrestling advantage and will win by decision

Rodriguez vs. Emmett
Josh Emmett, TKO, R4
Yair's chin always open and has 0 takedown defense emmett quite easily take him down but I think Yair's bjj is more improve and it's hard to overwhelming him in ground but emmett's heavy hands will hurt Yair in ground and feet. It's ending will similar as Yair vs Edgar fight

Pedro vs. Zhang
Tyson Pedro, TKO, R1
Easy fight for pedro

Kara-France vs. Perez
Kai Kara-France, DEC
Close fight but Kai will win in feet

I think a big reason for most people picking Kai is that Perez just got merked by Figgy and Pantoja, he did nothing, compare to Kai who loses to Moreno in respectful  loses, and honelsy Perez only beaton bottom UFC talent and old man Formiga, so who care

This is an easy fight for Makhachev, about time people start acknowledging just how good Islam is. He wins this with ease.

Flip a coin on whether Makhachev destroys him easily or takes a couple rounds to sub him. That’s the only coin flip here

I think Volk should not be going up
 He should have rather considered going down to bantamweight in my opinion.
