Usman over Masvidal, As much as it pains me to type that I do think Usman wins this fight. I’ve been a gamebred fan for years and Usman’s wrestling is on another level. yea yea yea but Masvidal went the distant with Maia, and he lost……. Usman is a wrestler who doesn’t hunt for submissions like a Jiu Jitsu guy does.
Holloway over Volkanovski, Holloway doesn’t lose in the same fashion two times in a row. I expect him to be more mobile and not allow Volk to score so many leg kicks. Which accounted for over 50% of Volks strikes landed last time these two faced off.
Rose Over Andrade, Rose is a more complete fighter. She was beating Andrade until that slam KO. The likelihood of that happening again are slim.
Yan Over Aldo, I’m not shorting Aldo here. I’m just all in on Yan and have been since his debut. I called it then that he’d be Champ. He is one of those guys you can see the greatness in his abilities. Kinda like a young Aldo.
PVZ, Go ahead and kiss Paige Vanzant goodbye, I think she wins tonight and is off to Bellator. The water between Paige and the UFC has been choppy during her arm injury which has caused her to pull out of a couple fights.
