    I doubt Hendricks touches Magny with his little reach.

    For the above....

    No money on it, hoss!

    I think there's every way Nunes wins - Rousey doesn't like getting punched and Nunes is essentially a man. This is a fight I definitely wouldn't bet on though! Will end quickly, one way or another.

    I have a weird feeling Hendricks knows how hard his back is against the wall. Lombard's tiny reach found Magny's chin more than once, as did Gastelum's tiny reach. Magny gets hit for fun, he just tends to have good recovery and manages to out-last these stocky, muscular punchers. That could definitely happen ths weekend, I agree, but I think Hendricks clocks him.

    Hector Lombard caught him early. I want Magny to win this, but I have a feeling Hendricks of old might show up and get a highlight KO.

    Hendricks isn't doing shit. He hasn't since mid 2015. I'm sure there's an explanation. I just haven't quite put my finger on it yet.

    I hope he gets finished again. Then retires his delusional, excuse making, ass. Maybe he'd do better in another company.

    He is on my list as one of the saltiest cheaters of all time. Interestingly enough... The acronym would be SCAT.

    Lineker is knocking out that annoying little cunt TJ. I agree with pretty much everything else apart from Hendricks winning

    Hendricks it the unpopular choice it seems! Its not an outcome I would bet on, more of a feeling I have. If Hendricks turns up sluggish, misses weight and loses a UD I won't bat an eyelid but I'm sticking with Hendricks by KO/TKO.

    Nunes via decision
    Garbrandt by submission in the second round.
    TJ by decision most likely
    And Neil Magny by decision

    Solid picks. Agree with all except Hendricks, and Smolka.

    Unless Hendricks can use his wrestling and land takedowns consistently (unlikely) I see Neil being able to keep range and pick him apart.

    Borg doesn't do anything spectacular but he's extremely quick and very solid everywhere. See him overwhelming Smolka with takedowns and clinch work for a UD.

    Smolka/Borg is a tough one for me. I'm not as high on Smolka as some are, but he's beaten guys around Borg's level. Borg's definitely stronger physically than Nguyen though so he won't get mauled, I think Smolka picks him apart from range for a close decision

    She has zero technique man. Rousey can definitely win but it'll be via her usual strategy of bum-rush, clinch, judo throw, armbar. It can definitely happen. But I just think she's not there mentally and is slightly afraid not so much of Nunes as a person, but the possibility of being brutally KO'd again, meaning she'll be hesitant to rush in.
