    Court actually has a chance here if he uses his wrestling defensively. Claudio is an excellent grappler but his striking is pretty poor.

    I expect an ugly fight here if it stays on the feet

    Court could win if it stays on the feet.

    Silva could easily sub him but Silva’s striking looked pretty novice to me.

    Claudio Silva is the answer to the question of what happens when a BJJ guy spends zero effort working on his striking or wrestling, and just devotes himself entirely to BJJ.

    I'm done even trying to predict the outcome of this guy's fights. On paper court should be able to keep it standing and outstrike him, but Silva keeps finding ways to get it to the ground.

    I think the card needs a lil bit more help. Maybe add a couple more bouts in the higher weight classes like WW or MW imo.

    Pre-2012 Court McGee was fun to watch.

    McGee should take this, silvas best chance is to clinch smother and submit early. The longer it goes, the less likely he is to catch Court.

    What a horrible card so far though

    court mcgee is that fighter that you always want to be successful and exciting but you know that just him even being in the octagon is a victory in and of itself. so good for him, hope he looks good.

    Hope Court does well.

    Cody-Font is going to be a hell of a fight. Rest of the card is pretty rough but curious to see how Xiaonan does.

    Hopefully Court can finish this one on the feet.

    I have a weird hatred for Claudio Silva, dunno why really. Rooting for McGee but he probably loses this via UD.

    Dvorak Vs Paiva is a decent scrap too imo.

    But yeah, this is not a good card overall. Hopefully this more international contender series they seem to be doing this year can re-invigorate the roster a bit.

    I feel like this could be a knife fight but with socks full of porridge instead of knives.

    Yea, card is kinda cringe but has a great main.

    the one guy I’d bring attention to is Bondar. Making his ufc debut and has looked like a killer overseas. Have another potential bantamweight contender in him
