Raining on me already with shitty decision to start :/


This one is next.

Bolanos debuts against Aaron Phillips, a fighter who's been away almost 3 years. Bolanos has only one fight in that time, but it was an impressive finish in the 1st round at Bellator 277. We will see regular spinning elbows from Bolanos with Phillips taking a lot more than giving. Bolanos ITD


UFC KC: Rest of the Prelims​

  • Vannata returns to FW after mixed results at LW. Vannata was mostly outsized and bullied at Lightweight so this is probably is a smart career move. He has the experience to out-fox his green foe. Zellhuber lost for the first time in his pro career vs Trey Ogden last time out. He's a high-volume body puncher but has no experience versus unorthodox pocket-fighters like Vanatta. Vannata Decision
  • Will Rodriguez, who loves working from top control, be willing tussle with Gillian’s fearsome sub game. Or will she opt to keep the fight standing and deny Robertson her preferred fight? She may have some success, I'll still back the Canadian submission artist in her first fight at Strawweight. Robertson ITD
  • Two old vet go at it in Ed Herman and Zak Cummings. With little recent activity, Herman may be best known for his pathetic gamesmanship against Mike Rodriguez that eventually earnt him a submission win. Despite being way past prime, the 42-year-old does bring represent a natural LHW build. Cummings, 38, is jumping up to Middleweight and has had more recent success. I would think he will be able to out-work Herman’s dismal output with the occasional power strike. Cummings
  • Likely a banger with Royval’s chaotic high-risk style vs Nicolau’s more conservative approach. Raw Dawg’s greatest threat stems from his willingness to forgo defense in pursuit of a finish. Nicolau’s technical counterstriking should be favored, but as seen against Kai Kara-France, it only takes one of Royval’s wild spinning strikes to end Matheus' night. Nicolau
  • The feature prelim has Bill Algeo and TJ Brown in a wrestling affair. Algeo has more to offer on the feet and will be able to dictate the pace. Brown’s all-out striking is a threat, yet single-shots and telegraphing often slows his roll. He likely struggles imposing will on Algeo’s awkward frame. Algeo Decision

UFC KC: Main Card​

  • Munhoz, the 36-year-old nicknamed ‘The Young Punisher’, returns looking for his first win in 2 years. His last fight against Sean O’Malley ended with a no-contest over an eye poke. Despite all his experience, Munhoz has remained a tough-chinned, leg-kicking machine that's impossible to out-wrestle. It won't bother Chris Gutierrez(19-3-2) fresh off his murdering Frankie Edgar...his sole intent is to keep this standing. Gutierrez
  • Ion Cutelaba, the angry Moldovan is facing a 4-fight slide but his energetic first-round flurries are always guaranteed money for the fans. Boser returns after a year off – sheading some belly flab to make 205. He was a light puncher with impressive hand speed at HW. If Boser avoid an early sub, he could box the fight out of Cutelaba. Boser ITD
  • Jacoby’s length and conservative approach standing make him a tough matchup for most LHWs. BUT...Murzakanov has made bank ducking overhands and hail marys during his UFC tenure. His grappling will add another level to this battle. Former kickboxer Jacoby, will be at substantial disadvantage on the mat despite an underrated grappling game. Azamat’s background in Sambo may tip the fight – though he did struggle finding takedowns vs Devin Clark and Tafon Nchukwi. Murzakanov


UFC KC: Co-Main​

  • Even after a long career of wars wearing on his 37-YO body, Barboza remains one of the deadliest fast-twitch strikers in the game. Billy Q is a super-durable foe that breaks opponents with persistence, but even he may struggle eating Edson’s kicks to the legs or chops. Billy’s pressure while standing could possibly exploit Barboza’s career weakness of backing himself into the cage. If Barboza TDD holds up, a pure striking affair would favor the old dog. However I think Billy can get it to the ground and secure enough control time to cash in on the cards. Quarantillo probably decision

My that was a sneaky knee, Edson's a master and ever so quick

  • 4/5.76 ARNOLD ALLEN +144
  • 3/2.52 ALLEN vs HOLLOWAY o4½ -119

UFC @KC: Main Event​

  • I used to get so excited when Max was making the walk, but after his trilogy with Volkanovski he's just not the same exciting fighter. Styles do make fights and Volk stripped Holloway of his volume boxing game through leg kicks and sniping combos. I know there's plenty miles left in the Max gas tank and he's a bad match-up for FWs. His chin continues looking as unbreakable as ever, along with his skilled counterpunching in the pocket and the recently added elbows. Even though Max failed all takedowns vs Volk, a wrestling threat will still benefit his game tonight – as seen in the distress it caused Rodriguez during their bout. Arnold Allen seems like solid gent in and out of the octagon. An athletic beast with a plethora of exceptional weapons held loosely together by a thread. Some recent wins have followed reckless aggression, such as the suffocating volume against Dan Hooker. You can't overlook Allen’s grappling chops...a strength that helped him grind out a decision over the highly rated prospect Sodiq Yusuff. We don't know how Allen adapts over 5 rounds. He is on a 10-fight UFC win streak but he hasn't faced a top dog yet. Max has proven he can weather an early storm to come on strong later down the line. There is no such track record of Allen dealing with a tough battle into the championship rounds. Very close call, but I'll ride with the dog. Allen and Over
