    Really, really good fight. I'm taking Jacare by Sub within 2 rounds. A win here should get him a title shot.

    Jacare by sub round 2. Kelvins boxing is great, but his ground game will be his undoing unless he can keep it standing all 3 rounds. Great fight to make though, really hyped for this one.

    I think Kelvin will take it and actually make it look easy.

    Jacare only seems to beat washed up fighters and cans these days. Last good win was Mousasi in 2014.

    Jacare doesn't have the wrestling Weidman has.

    Kelvin's TDD has also most likely drastically improved since the Weidman fight.

    Jacare by sub but a Kelvin by KO would not surprise me.

    Not complaining, since it's a real good matchup. But I thought jacare was gonna end up fighting weidman, and give him another reality check.

    Should be Weidman/Jacare for the next shot after Yoel

    I guess they're looking at Weidman/Rockhold 2?

    Idk man this is a weird matchup, Jacare should absolutely be in a title eliminator and Gastelum shouldn't be

    Kelvin beats Jacare in a similar fashion to Whittaker. Uses his wrestling to keep it on the feet and takes advantage of being the smaller man to stick and move.

    Edit: Big agree on it should have been Weidman Jacare, but they probably don't want to keep waiting for Weidman.
