    Few Canadians for a Toronto card.

    Holloway and Ortega could be the best fight of the year. It's this or Khabib-McGregor/Whittaker-Romero/DC-Stipe.

    Similar to my picks, except i'm pretty sure gunnar finishes cowboy. Bochniak vs.dawodu is a toss up too.

    I don't think Gunnar can get past Oliveira's striking he presents a Ponzi type pressure with KO power can grapple & jitz too and is strong as f*k. I'm not really sold on Dawodu gave him the nod on hometown favor but he really turned me off with the over the top mean mugging face at ceremonial.

    I think gunnar is better than oliveira everywhere to be honest, but I won't be surprised if Oliveira can find his chin.

    Fun Fact, both of Gunnar's and Olivera's strike-absorption hover at around 50%.

    They get hit with a LOT.
