Predictions: 8 of 11 Winners, 2 Perfect, 530 Points   |   Tied for 56th

Polastri vs. Conceição
Julia Polastri, DEC
Polastri looked bad on dwcs because she went up a weight class against a good wrestler. At 115, she is much better. I actually think she’s a very good prospect at 115

Bellato vs. dos Santos
Rodolfo Bellato, SUB, R2
I actually really like Bellato. His two losses are to vitor petrino who is pretty solid. Bellato does have a bad chin but his striking has improved a ton. His bjj is super slick. Acacio doesn’t hit that hard, so we don’t have to worry about Bellato getting chinned. Then, we all saw how bad his tdd is against anton. I think this should be a pretty easy win for Bellato. Hopefully he gets another dwcs shot because 1. 205 needs depth and 2. I like him

Laurenço vs. Alves
Fernando Laurenço, DEC
This fight is going to be way closer than talology odds have it. Both these guys are really talented prospects. Alves doesn’t have the prettiest record but he is a really skilled striker. He was doing really well against LLL, and since that fught rebounded with two impressive wins. Laurenco on the other hand is a very good striker on a huge winstreak. Winner of this fight is gonna be established as a guy to look out for

Neto vs. Delmandes
Geraldo Neto, TKO, R1
Neither of these guys are great but this is gonna be a brawl. Someone is getting KTFO

Rocha vs. da Silva
Lucas Rocha, TKO, R1
Despite the impressive record & flashy highlight reel, Rocha isn’t ufc ready just yet (imo). Don’t get me wrong, he’s super talented but he is prone to getting hit & leaves his chin up in the air. I think this is a fight he should win, but this other guy seems pretty decent so wouldn’t shock me if there’s an upset here. I believe in Rocha tho so obviously going with him

Cunha vs. Batista
Hugo Cunha, TKO, R1
Hilarious that ONE cut Cunha after that awful performance last time out. He gassed when he faced resistance for the first time & had no answer once he was tired. However, this seems like a tee up. Really hard to see how he loses this

Pires vs. Fernandes
Kauã Fernandes, TKO, R1
The fernandes brothers are another up and coming brotherly duo out of Brazil. I think Kaua is the better of the two. I bet him and his brother will end up on dwcs this year, following the bonfims from last year.

Silva vs. Douglas
Gabriel Silva, DEC
I was shocked silva lost his last fight. I knew he wasn’t amazing but damn that was a bad look. He should take this easily tho, this other guy isn’t great

Degli vs. Paiva
Hugo Paiva, TKO, R2
This is going to be a crazy fight; both these guys love to brawl. However, I think paiva is much better. I thought he won against lipe detona but the fight was really close. That fight was also one of the craziest brawls I’ve seen; highly recommend. I think paiva may end up on dwcs if this fight is crazy enough

Simões vs. Santos
João Paulo Santos, DEC
Simoes is a gasser & doesn’t have good losses. Don’t know this other guy but he is on a good winstreak

Silva vs. Bertolso
Aieza Bertolso, SUB, R1
Bertolso is an elite prospect out of immaf. She is one of the best female prospects out there. Her grappling is very strong & she trains with a lot of good women for camp. I expect her to be in the ufc within the next 3-4 years

So this girl bertolso is fighting is actually an Olympic judoka. So not your average debutant. That’s being said, I really think aieza is a top wmma prospect

Ferreira vs. Luiz
Anderson Ferreira
Couldn’t find anything impressive in his footage Doesn’t have much on his opponent on paper, but has some finishes in recent phase, however, not too recent as his last KO I was over a year ago

Neto vs. Delmandes
Argemiro Delmandes
Could get lucky and catches up on and off guard with the swarm early but if he can’t get to finish, he may gas in the later rounds Has a whole bunch of knockouts against guys that haven’t even won fights recently. Most of them have losing records so his opponents are extremely questionable. Seems like he’s going to get a knockout or get knocked out, goes for the finish right at the bell, with no real technical ability and hasn’t shown the ability to get knockouts against high-level opponents.

Rocha vs. da Silva
Matheus da Silva
Only chance in this fight is that a muscle is opponent, who is basically a midget Low ranked fighter, but has some solid wins. Mostly winning by decision had some finishers in recent fights but opponents are also early in their career couldn’t find much footage on this guy. Not sure how he will match up against the guy. Who is top 10 in the division in his area

Bellato vs. dos Santos
Acácio dos Santos, TKO, R2
IGNORE PROPS. Provided Bellato fails to execute ground game blueprint, see value in Dos Santos striking. Aside from Anton, not much footage of him being taken down and controlled for long. Matches with felipe and Almeida look promising on his BJJ. Going with dog at 3.4

Degli vs. Paiva
Marcos Degli, DEC
IGNORE PROPS. Prospect match btn two muay thai style guys. Despite record and losses, Tailandes pretty length and all around fighter. See value in Degli’s reach, output, and durability. Going with dog at 2.75.

Lerryan Douglas
LD: Opponent looks like **** on paper, so that’s a tough match up to predict Seems to slow down after the first round, questionable cardio Very low, rank fighter coming out of Brazil with a 50-50 record. Most of this wins coming by decision has decent pressure on the feet and can’t control on the ground but really has no damaging. Strikes allows his opponents off the hook. not very active hasn’t won a fight since last year.

Some (most) of the guys on this card are proper beasts Brazil is a killing ground, sink or swim... Brazil just churns out elite fighters and WMMA as well... And they dominate in the blackbelt BJJ/sub grappling scene. They also have great judo and striking sports. Wrestling in Brazil is a work in progress

Fancy New Predictions

Predictions: 5 of 9 Winners, 2 Perfect, 300 Points   |   Tied for 354th

Minoto vs. Vieira
I am obsessed with Manuel Robson Minoto at -250. He has a brash overhand. Minoto won't kiss the canvas.

Bellato vs. dos Santos
I believe in Rodolfo Bellato at -280. He has an accurate bolo punch and a twisted crossface. Bellato won't capture the ring announcer.

Neto vs. Delmandes
I appoint Geraldo Neto at -325. He has an oppulent sprawl and an integral left hand. Neto will likely screw the humiliating defeat. Fix und fertig!

Rocha vs. da Silva
I prefer Lucas Rocha at -205. He has a brash facebuster. Rocha isn't about to outsmart the senses. Guaranteed!

Cunha vs. Batista
I appoint Hugo Cunha at -900. He has a talented bolo punch and a killer mountain bomb. Cunha might prevent the underdog.

Pires vs. Fernandes
I am with Kauã Fernandes at -245. He has an ironic left hand. Fernandes is about to whack the achievement.

Degli vs. Paiva
I go with Hugo Paiva at -240. He has a natural double knife hand block and a poignant uppercut. Paiva can vaccinate the dissentient.

Simões vs. Santos
I am going with João Paulo Santos at -750. He has a jingoistic full nelson and an oppulent osoto gari. Santos ought to drop the dissentient. Beep boop!

Ferreira vs. Luiz
I favor Anderson Ferreira at -170. He has a voluptuous guillotine. Ferreira is about to blast the dissentient.

I think Rocha had the better performance, Da Silva is obviously tired and just holding out. Awesome second round with both escaping chokes.

A draw would also be alright. Good fight.

@Troz

Rocha won the second and third on damage, but I have money on him so naturally Da Silva should get the win.
