Paddy would lose to most of the top 30 fighter at lightweight,  someone who has even any danger to his game and is not a bad fighter would destroy Paddy, so atleast 80% of the division fits into that category, I think it bad also because Paddy is in lightweight also which is the 2nd deepest division in the ufc, it’s not 185+ or women MMA, where you can get ranked by being bad

Damir having 30% takedown defence give a path to Paddy, He risk of getting KTFO, only thing is that is a bit of a step down from Gordon and he did technically work it

Marvin's chin and anti-grappling will carry him through this one. I think.

Speak up. Argue against my point


Hadzovic would ko gordon with ease. Gordon is a decent striker but Hadzovic is one of the best strikers in the ufc today

Hadzovic is one of the best strikers in the ufc today? With all due respect ***

I didn't dislike your comment btw, just wondering how you came to that conclusion

I didn't downvote your comment but that is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard. Damir being one of the best strikers in the UFC? LMFAO. He ain't even top 5 in his own division, much less the entire UFC. By definition, that would be a step down for Paddy, and Hadzovic would probably get submitted within a round. He does pose a threat on the feet obviously, and he is a far better striker than anyone Paddy has faced so far, but the takedown defense and entire game just aren't there

I say this, Dolidze has been doing good at finishing guy, But I’m not sure of the overall substance to his game, beside the finishing move, he hasn’t done much, I don’t think you can beat Vettori by meme finish with one move, you have to be the better fighter then Vettori, And I doubt Dolidze is

I agree. I think Marvin is one of those guys who only loses to the best, guys like Whittaker and Adesanya. I think Roman is really good but he just isn’t that caliber

Personally I feel Marv has been robbed at least once and hes just is an unlikable weird dude so nobody cares.
Bit like Leon Edwards too quiet and when their not the trash talks is not good and they don't do good interviews.
These guys just need to learn to yell stupid **** at random works for Paddy The Fatty Sean Stick worked sometimes for Izzy worked for Tito back in the day.
Roman is popular not a big name but I could see him losing and getting a paddy win just because he has a fan base.

None of what you said made any sense. You're more unhinged than Sean Strickland on cocaine filled lean

Joanne Wood, DEC
Imo JoJo is only on a 2 fight skid. That Murphy fight was a robbery in my eyes. Either way this is a serious step down in competition for her and she should win

Vetorri vs Dolidze
Marvin Vettori, DEC
I think vetorri will have the better output, he’s a perfect matchup vs dolidze, he’s got amazing tdd, and his chin is crazy, vettori wins based on output

Wood vs Carolina
 Joanne wood, DEC
This should be relatively easy for JoJo to win this, Carolina is bad, JoJo is also used to fighting better comp and she should win this one

since Usman and Edwards trilogy was rumored for this card, but now apparently Usman might not be able to make it because of a broken hand -- if that's the case who do you guys think is the other best option for Edwards? The rematch with Belal? I know some people on twitter have said "give him Wonderboy" but I don't think beating an unranked Holland warrants anything close to a title shot lol
