    You think so? I don't think it's too bad. Like, it's not fantastic, but it's a fun card.

    I cannot understand how they have Andrade/Karolina opening the night though? That should be on the main card.

    Till beats Woodley I think
    Andrade is a strong lean
    Valentina is a lock
    Rivera likely outpoints Dodson
    Suarez should out muscle Esparza

    I agree with most of these, part of me thinks that Dodson will KO Rivera.

    Every pick is the same except I think Rivera beats Dodson via boring decision since Dodson doesn't throw anything. Rivera got caught in his last fight and Dodson ain't finishing shit.

    Main event is a coin flip really, depends what kind of gameplan Till has. We know what Tyrun will do, nothing.

    Agreed 100%. Suarez being a -750 favorite over Esparza could be a big cash in (if it goes our way).

    Oh the Woodley hate is strong with this one ;)

    I have covered my bases by betting on Rivera also, I think it depends on what Dodson shows up. He can put people out if he lands in the right spot, but he's not done that in a long time.

    I think that is a crazy line also. I guess they are just thinking that a Bronze medalist in the World Championships may be able to outwrestle the wrestler.

    I know this isn't the point of this thread but, I have no idea who most of these people are. I'm not intentionally bashing the card. There are just so many new fighters constantly being signed, it's impossible to keep up.

    Woodley
    Valentina by finish
    Valentina/ Montano under 3.5
    Andrade by decision
    Alex White to win
    Pudilova by split decision

    One of the hardest cards to predict I've ever seen. UFC match-making is changing to mostly very competitive fights with zero fucks for a potential stars record because they don't want to pay anybody anymore.
