    Two big scary gremlins. One of them is absolutely ancient and can barely take a hit these days. But still a killer on the ground. The other is seemingly pretty average everywhere (besides throws, he is a great throw-er!) but has youth on his side.

    If this goes anything like I expect it to, Spivak’s average striking should get the job done, like mostly anyone at HWs would against Oleinik in June of 2021. Round 2 tko.

    Obviously rooting for Alexei though, is this his last fight of his contract?

    Surely no one wants to see Oleinik stumbling around like a psychiatric patient on day release anymore?

    I fully expected Mark Hunt to clobber Oleynik when they fought but if my brain isn’t failing me (could be..) Oleynik took him down and strangled him the first chance he got.

    Spivak seems to be average at best on the ground from what little I’ve seen him so I think Oleynik has a good chance here to snatch another sub and a W.

    Spivak is a big guy and could just as easily catch Oleynik before he can wrap anything around him. Anyway, I don’t see it going the distance.

    Oleinik will keep fighting until they cut him. He's talked before about money problems.

    I feel for the guy but it's time to hang em' up. I don't want to see him get crushed anymore.

    Head kick?! I don’t remember that, that’s for sure. I went looking for gifs and found this one:

    It is failing you. Oleynik actually cleaned Hunt's clock which allowed him to take his back and finish. Oleynik had a strange run where his hands were heavy and his striking was effective. He rocked Browne before the finish, rocked Hunt, rocked Werdum and outstruck him then other times people make easy work of him.

    Aren’t “Gremlins” actually pretty small? Two big scary Gremlins doesn’t make a lot of sense to me.

    Anyway, War Boa Constrictor. I hope he can get back in the win column. I really like that guy as a fighter. The amount of fights, and sub wins he has is just ridiculous. I’d pay money to see that guy fight anyday. And isn’t he now the oldest fighter on the roster?? Just incredible. I follow only three fighters on social media. He is one of them.

    For some reason this opening paragraph has me laughing out loud!

    Spivac is very unimpressive, in my opinion. However, he can at least move for 15mins and that's more than can be said of Oleinik nowadays (understandably). I'm going with Spivac being controlled on the mat for 5mins, before potshotting his way to drab UD or maybe a 3rd round finish.

    Before seeing this, I had no idea the Ezekiel could even be pulled off without sleeves. It was revolutionary for me. Street fights will never be the same.
