    Agree with all except for Volkov, Conor and Jiri. I’m conflicted about Sandhagen vs Dillashaw. I have no idea how post-steroid-Dillashaw will look like..

    Why so much hype on Gane? I saw his recent fights including Rozenstruik live and nothing about him was super impressive other than his cardio. Striking is slow, unexplosive, and more of a point fighter. Didn't seem like the hardest guy to hit either, just a bit harder to land clean on. Want to see more of grappling but based on experience, can't imagine him being great at grappling either.

    Sure he can beat tailor made matchups for him like Rozenstruik, but against Volkov, Lewis, Ngannou, Stipe, any of those guys I think he gets smashed. Maybe he beats Lewis since Lewis is slow and prodding himself. IMHO, def wanna hear others opinions bout it tho.

    Yan vs Aljo 2
    I got Aljo here.
    He was schooling Yan throughout the whole fight, don't see anything would change. Maybe his surgery could be the X factor?

    Interesting list. Why Oliveira over Chandler? Chandler has wrestling advantage so he can keep it standing most likely. Oliveira may have improved, but his striking and chin in the past were meh, hasn't shown enough to say he's better striker than Chandler overall.

    Just think Oliveira has that unorthodoxy which will make it difficult for Chandler. Feel Charlie Olives is being underestimated. That being said I'm not super confident either way, but pulling for the man from Brazil.

    Id say having Chandler beat Oliveira and volkov beat Gane is atleast debateble, but not impossible.
    Also Jiri starches Reyes.

    @Jojomojo Since for some reason I can't quote you.........I'm not on board on Reyes getting beat. But you make a good point on Oliveira


    Not a point I guess but now you got me questioning my pick lol
