    Blaydes beard looks like molded concrete and RDA got a serious porn stache going on, is it just me or does this Fight Night poster have a mildly gay hairy porn feel to it..?

    yo yo!
    Yeah this card is ok. not bad. I'm looking forward to the Arnold Allen fight.
    THink Blaydes got the W in the main event

    And I always like Lina Lansberg cos she's cute and she's quite a tough chick.
    Got my picks all setup on Tapology.

    Yeah Allen keeps on winning, he's an excellent prospect. I think JDS is just on the downslope now and he does seem chinny. If Blaydes cracks his chin I think its all over, OR Blaydes can just wrestle JDS to exhaustion. More options for Blaydes.

    They need to stop putting heavyweights in main events.

    RDA-Chiesa, Allen-Lentz or even Espinosa-Perez fights would've been more compelling 5-rounders. Imagine having flyweight brawl for 5 rounds. Hell yeah motherfuckers.

    This fight night is the equivalent of the 246 ppv in terms of quality of Card. 2 decent scraps then nothing.

    Hm, this card is more solid than I remember it being. It honestly nearly slipped my mind.

    I like Curtis as a fighter. He's a purist wrestler who manages to be entertaining. I like his odds, but it'll be a legitimate test for Blaydes to see if he can make it into the big leagues at HW. Franky is the only one to derail him thus far, as the dude seems to be his Kryptonite.

    I'd just like to see Curtis shore up his boxing and add a layer of submission offense to his ground game. He'd be even more of a powerhouse.

    Going to make some picks (even though I suck at them) here on the top two fights on the Main Card.

    Blaydes vs. JDS: I've got Curtis by UD. JDS is on the downward slope and his TDD isn't as great as it once was. Despite being a Black Belt in BJJ, he's never been a huge submission threat, especially off his back... which is where I think Curtis will put him before grinding out relentless GNP. Junior is light years ahead of Curtis in the standup, but unlike Francis he doesn't have the one-punch KO power to stop Blaydes in his tracks. So while he'll come out ahead in some of the boxing exchanges, ultimately I think Curtis will take him down and outpoint him with top control.

    Michael Chiesa vs. RDA: I'm gonna say RDA by late stoppage (probably TKO or submission). His standup is a lot more refined than anything I've seen from Mike. Chiesa has some awesome offensive grappling, but I'd be really surprised if it was enough to pull one over on somebody with RDA's credentials.

    I don't know enough about the other fighters to make any guesses about the outcome, but I will comment on two of them.

    Jamahal Hill vs. Darko Stosic: I don't watch DWTNCS, but Hill seems to have made quite the name for himself there. Undefeated thus far, but no big name competition. Seems to be a lengthy striker. Stosic's last few bouts haven't gone well, but he has some legit Judo credentials. Excited about this one for some reason.

    Hannah Cifers vs. Angela Hill: Interestingly, both of these gals are former North American Amateur Muay Thai champs (K-1 for Cifers, WKA for Hill). That in mind, I'm hoping we see an entertaining, technical striking match.

    Huge fanboy of Hannah Cifers here. I have a weak spot for two WMMA fighters, and those are....Hannah and Roxane.

    LETS GO!

    I don't think Blaydes chin is any better than current JDS.

    Curtis ate a Uberknee in the to the face like nothing. And he wasn't out despite being punched a lot by Ngannou

    I think his chin is one of his best assets tbf.

    Ngannou put him out with the quickness and Hunt had him on queer street. He's definitely chinny and JDS still has power.
