    I agree with all of your predictions except RDA/Edwards and Askren/Masvidal, but only 'cause I haven't made up my mind about those yet.

    I'd also add Holly beating Nunes and Rockhold beating Jan

    I agree with all of them aside from Stipe vs DC. I hope Stipe wins but I seriously think DC is a terrible match up for him. Iron chin, fast hands, better wrestling, and great cardio.

    Masvidal vs Askren is hard to predict but I feel like Masvidal could win if he uses a lot of foot work. Lawler literally walked straight into Askren within the first 5 seconds

    Masvidal isn’t beating Askren

    Old dogs can’t learn new tricks

    You're wrong on 6 of your predictions, in my prediction.

    Ngannou/Jds: JDS, KO/TKO or DEC
    Jones/santos: Jones SUB or DEC
    Askren/Masvidal: Askren SUB
    RDA/Edwards: RDA TKO
    Holloway/Edgar: holloway TKO
    DC/Stipe: DC KO/TKO
    Diaz/Pettis: 50/50, probably going to DEC
    Yoel/Costa: Yoel by career-changing KO

    Yeah not sure why people are thinking this is going to be so close Romero will win handily imo

    I'm just hoping RDA KO's Edward's tbh

    The only way I see Stipe beating DC is by staying on the outside for 25 minutes and to box him up which I don't think is possible.

    DC wins!!

    yeah i dont agree. A lot of these fights are toss ups and i would pick the other guy in a quite a few as well.


    JDS vs Francis is close to a pick em id say 60/40 Francis
    I agree on jones
    Askren is going to rape Masvidal
    RDA/Edwards is a toss up i lean to RDA
    Max/franie is also a tough fight to predict. I do agree though
    I got DC by KO again
    Diaz/pettis is a toss up, i can see pettis breaking or Diaz getting TKOd
    and you dont even pick a winner in the last fight..and second easiest IMO.. Yoel by KO

    If you're that good at predictions.. Then you'll probably win fantasyfightweek.com

    But I'm not so sure about your predictions

    Considering you're wrong about Masvidal/Askren, DC/Stipe and Pettis/Diaz somehow I don't think they are totally predictable

    I think Jones/Santos is the only one that is almost a sure thing

    At least Santos is a dangerous striker though, there's always a glimmer of hope


    Askren humping Jorge to a decision or eventually stopping him on the ground seems highly likely too

    Easy?? LOL. Underlined your incorrect picks.

    RDA/Edwards will go to RDA. Edwards barely beat Gunnar Nelson. RDA looked great against Kevin Lee. Edwards is too thin for 170, and he's gonna get bullied in the clinches.

    And why the hell are you picking Stipe? I'm not saying he doesn't have a chance to win. But nothing tells us that DC shouldn't be the favorite.

    Santos' best and only chance is to just bum rush Jon in the 1st round. Setting aside PED arguments, Jon as shown that others just can't compete with him at his range and pace. If you let Jon sit back and chop at your legs, you're going to lose. I'm still convinced the best way to beat him is to wade into the fire and turn the fight into a wild brawl. But you need the TDD to prevent him from taking you to the ground in close :S
