    Think I have to lock in Gillian Robertson here and trust that she won’t get herself caught in something stupid w/3 seconds to go in the round again. Yan has been impressive but I don’t play Dodson fights anymore as they are usually a fantasy points wasteland. If Yan gets there for the people who take him, great but I’ve been down that road too many times. Grant burned me so bad against Ottow – his volume was atrocious. I think he comes out more aggressive…idk though. Idk a lot about where I’m going w/this card yet.

    Jan Blachowicz is awesome when he fights in the octagon. Diego Ferreira the bad ass is back. This fight card is great. :D

    I’m with you on the first – Santos is absolutely dangerous but I gotta believe in Jan. I’ll be fading that Ferreira / Khabilov fight though – don’t have a good feel for it. GL

  • someclevername

    Want nothing to do with the co-main – just 2 untrustworthy fighters I want nothing to do with on 1 lineup. Could be anything. Gun to temple I’ll back Struve, but who knows. The Villante fight is another pass for me. These fights are prob going to be fireworks now cos that is how MMA works.

    Ferreira is good vs wrestlers surprised he’s considered the underdog. Will use him as salary relief.

    Ismaguluv obliterates Alvarez.

    Wasn’t impressed with Goldfish Ufc debut. Teymur should be able to out-strike him, going to gamble on a finish.

    Reyes struggled with vick’s absurdly reach, but other than that has looked good in the ufc. Feel confident in his victory, hoping for a finish.

    Gillian Robertson fight iq is questionable but agreed with clevername she should be able to get there with her wrestling. Think I remember andrea lee had a field day with macedo last time.

    Dodson is super overrated and loves to run but Yan’s striking is really good. Picks his shots well and with reach advantage hoping he ko’s him. Huge risk with low pts decision possibility but F it lol.

    Carmouche wrestling has a good chance to get there, Lucie struggled against the cage vs Lisa who wasn’t even a wrestler but a kickboxer i believe.

    Stefan Struve has solid chance to win via submission I feel like. Most of Lima’s losses have come from submission his defensive bjj not bueno. Only doing single bullet as usual so he doesn’t make the cut for me, but if I was doing multi lu’s I’d put him in a few.

    Main event Santos has absurd power can never count that out, but feel this is an ideal matchup for Jan. Has the hometown advantage, taller/greater reach, and showed he has no cardio problems unlike Santos who gassed vs Anders. This is a 5 round fight. Also Jan struggles more-so vs really great wrestlers which Santos isn’t.

    Absolutely no way Dodson gets KO’d. F’ing hummingbird that guy is. A decision loss sure, KO no. I guess we’ll see.

    Lol yeah he’s never been ko’d before. Lives up this moniker, “the magician”. It’s definitely a big risk since decision is the more likely outcome.. Kind of annoying lol. Prazeres or ankalaev are possibly worthwhile alternatives. Still tinkering the car is early morning so not as much time as usual.

    I’m looking forward to the Yan / Dodson fight. Dodson will only be able to run for so long. I expect Yan to chase him down and smash him.

  • someclevername

    I fully expect Dodson to get KO’d now lol – I’m usually wrong so it fits. Man, I have played so many Dodson fights and ugh – it wouldn’t surprise me for the one I finally take a stand on to end in a finish. Son of a bish lol

    Haha, I hear ya man. I have ~30% Yan so he’s certainly not an all-in play…but from what I’ve seen from his fights, he’s not going to let Dodson dance around for 15 min. Should be an interesting clash of styles.

    Dodson is going down today. I’ve been a Dodson fan his whole career but don’t like this matchup for him.

    I had 33% Prazeres along with a couple stabs on the kid. I guess at least I was underweight.

  • someclevername

    Only reason I didn’t have Prazares was his price – got lucky there lol.

    Hadzovic!

    K, didn’t know Reyes was completely inept ion the ground. Must have decided to never learn anything cause no one in the UFC takedowns and grapples

  • callmetouch
