    I always agree with your posts, me and you think alike. -28 for Jessica Eye fight is kind though, you are in a very good mood today, I can tell haha. Wouldn't even get on the dark bouts of King of the Cage events. Aldo/Moraes is my favorite one too.

    Araujo is a killer & you could learn a few things to add to your own striking game from her.

    You nailed it! Very good mood, took the day off to eat the rest of some Cheez-its I found in pantry. She only got that high of a rating bc I recognize the name and don't know why. Just want to see men go in there and try to knock the other out, that's how you win a fight. No time for wrestle humping or mixing it up to win rounds, no place for women -even if they look like men and eat what men eat (RIP kitty). Maybe some of those filler fights will be exciting.

    That's the 1st time I've ever seen the name. Have no idea who she is. To be honest, if it's on prelims I'll fast forward right through it.

    Fair enough. She gassed in the 3rd her of last fight because Davis Homer-Simpson'd her. I think she is going to light Eye up & get the next title shot at Shevy after Chookagian.

    Your list is good, but I'll put Brandon vs. Kai at # 5, Ian vs. Omari at # 6, Geoff vs. Mike at # 8, Matt vs. Ben at # 9, and everything else the same, except that your # 11 and # 13 picks are not "least anticipated".....they're not at all anticipated.

    The bottom 4 qualify for not at all anticipated for me. I also don’t really care about WMMA outside of maybe 3-4 fighters.

    All I know is that I just realized UFC 245 is this weekend and how stacked it is.
    Ffs, it's been a long time since I last stayed awake (or woken up really early) for UFC, but I think I'll be doing one of those things this coming saturday.
