    For me it was Werdum vs Miocic, when the match was made I knew Miocic was a NIGHTMARE match up for Werdum.

    I knew Werdum improved his striking a lot but Miocic is a far better boxer and way more athletic than Werdum and also I knew Miocic wrestling and fight IQ would have been enough to nullify Werdum's jew jit su.

    Werdum was a decent favorite going into the fight and most people were picking him but I knew Miocic was gonna fuck him up pretty bad, I was praying someone pulled out and the fight be cancelled.

    However I never expected the the fight to go the way it did, that KO shook me to the core.

    Mirko vs Fedor. Also had a bad feeling about Shogun vs Jones lol especially since Shogun was coming off yet another knee injury and Jones was a completely different style matchup than the original opponent Shadface

    Also Shogun Jones

    I knew Shogun was screwed when he said something like "might as well face him now cause its only going to get harder later"

    Used to be a big Diego fan back in the day. But, I knew Penn was going to kick his ass. I was hoping maybe Diego could land a lucky power shot or something

    I wanted Vitor to beat Weidman so bad, such a shame they didn't fought in 2013 or early 2014

    My saddest Vitor loss was Tito. Devastating.
