    I think Ortega vs. Holloway will be a great fight and either Ortega gets the sub or Holloway out-strikes him and eventually hurts him and finishes him. Sure Ortega KO'd Edgar but I wouldn't say 1 fight shows he's got great striking. Up to that point I thought his striking was actually pretty deficient.

    I think Jedrzejczyk vs. Shevchenko is a case of two non-power punchers which most women are anyway and will end up in a decision.

    I could care who wins in Jedrzejczyk vs. Shevchenko but I'm rooting for Ortega. He's a quick, lethal sub-master who's fun to watch. They way he hunted down Cub Swanson's neck and took him down was awesome.

    Who thinks my calls are right in how these 2 fights end?

    I will eat my shoe if there’s a non-submission finish in JJ vs Schevchenko

    I cant even watch that fight . The fact that they robbed the next big thing Sijara Eubanks of her title shot makes me mad as hell.

    You’re incredibly wrong.

    Shevchenko x Joanna is the highest level match up there’s ever been in wmma with both fighters in their optimal weight class in the best shape they’ve ever been in.

    Shevchenko is aggressive and has power at 125 and Joanna has TKOd others and been KOd herself. Shevchenko has more than twice as many finishes as decision wins.

    I am also rooting for Ortega though and think he beats Max.

    Schevchenko does have a pretty slick armbar sub on her record but I think you're definitely right. I don't see either of them wanting to take the fight to the ground

    I have Max via TKO and Shevchenko via UD.

    I think shevchenko is gonna get it to the ground and get a tko. I think Ortega gets a sub within 3 rounds

    both of your predictions are the favorite to happen. Way to go out on a limb.

    While we are at obvious likelihoods, i predict Shevchenko and claudia to win their fights (both around -330)

    Btw, i did bet on a Shevchenko finish but only because it was enticing odds, not because it's the likely outcome
