    I am not sold either way in main event, I think Glover will win but my gut says OSP will catch him unexpectedly. Dariush to beat Johnson

    It depends which Glover shows up. If he is out of shape, OSP, if he comes to kill, Teixeira. Would like OSP to win, but he's never beat anyone as good as Glover. Really pulling for Dariush. This is his big break, and I've followed him since he came to the UFC, so I'm really excited for him.

    My money is on OSP, Johnson, McMann, and Alvey..
    The other fights are for me to kick back and enjoy sans monetary stresses.

    That Greek guy looked terrible when I saw his last fight, I don't know how he can possibly win.

    I have Bamgbose beating Hall.

    OSP by TKO.

    Glover over OSP for sure

    Ppl are way too hyphy over a flash KO against a washed up fighter, OSPs entire skillet is rudimentary

    SO am I, I really this guy. He's young and has managed to transition his high level grappling game to mma so well.

    Judging from the weigh ins, Glover is in good shape. He weight at 205.5 but looked leaner and more fit then his last fight. His last fight was in Brazil and a few of Glover training partners and other fighters said he did F#$K all the last week and just enjoyed Brazil. Then had a terrible cut

    Do we know how well Bamgbose can defend takedowns? With little experience and a lack of quality opposition I'm guessing his TDD can't be great.


    Hall is obviously a striker mostly but he's shown excellent takedowns in the past when he's used them, if he pulls them out of his toolkit again, I could see him beating Bamgbose easily. That should be his plan tonight anyway.

    I think he's one of these guys thats dangerous early and explosive but as the fight goes on he fades.

    I picked Christodoulou because I've never seen Holtzman fight before. Actually, looking at his record (7-0 as a pro, 4-0 amateur), I think I'm gonna' go with Scott.
    I actually just looked at AC's record, and I had him confused with another dude. Shit, AC might get murked.

    Holtzman is cool as hell and a really solid fighter. Christodoulou is very small for lightweight, very bland fighter. Can see Holtzman dominating.

    He did look a lot better, shape-wise. That's why I picked him. I think he's going to look more like when he annihilated Flavio Malbobabo (lol) and murked 'Page.

    I want Timothy Johnson, Alvey, MJ and OSP to win, but if I were a betting man I would put my money on their opponents.

    Rosholt will wrestlefuck to a UD, Brunson will outclass Alvey like Watson did, Dariush will overpower MJ with wrestling and Teixeira will outbox and outgrapple OSP.

    Yeah, I'm officially changing my pick. I got the guy confused with another guy that favours the RNC. I believe he is nicknamed, "The Spartan". (Not Alex White or Elias Theodorou).

    Hall needs to win big in this one. He's looked bad against name fighters like Sapo and Santos (though he fucked up his toe, so I give him a pass).
