    You dont give yourself enough credit.

    Unless Zahabi knows some inside scoop, such as one of the fighters being injured, or out of shape, etc. your guess is as good as his.

    All he did was basically broke down the fight the way anyone with half a brain who's watched some Nate Diaz and Conor fights could do. So and so has the reach advantage, so and so has the knockout power, if it goes past the first round, bla bla bla.

    No one's predicting shit.
     

  2. Yep, we covered that a couple of responses back in page 1 and agree.

    Firas usually has great insight on fights. People said he was way wrong on Hendricks/Thompson and ended up being dead on accurate.

    This guy predicted last half a dozen fights by GSP to be comprehensive finishes

    He's right... There are articles done for almost every event with pros, coaches, and analysts involved with the sport picking fights and as a whole they don't usually do any better than the forum posters here.

    That's not to say that Firas isn't good at picking fights. I don't know if he is or isn't. What he said still holds true about people in the sport in general, though.

    A fight COULD end early depending on how it goes when one of the guys is a power puncher? Way to go out on a limb Firas.

    Hard to put any stock into Firas latest predictions considering his camp has gone about 1-50 in the last year.

    Thank you for booty. And you are right, no one is qualified to voice their opinion on who is going to win. And thats not just for this matchup, even Fedor in his prime versus random Japanese wrassling star is too uncertain for anyone to be able to predict and everyone should therefor stfu. All sport shows should just be the presenters staring down on the floor until the fight/game starts.

    Incorrect. His guess is based on knowledge and experience. Now he could be wrong, in fact, there is a 50% chance that he is wrong, however and answer honestly: If you had to bet your life on it, would you take the word of Firas Zahabi or the average armchair watching MMA fan?
