Gil (Strikeforce) and Khabilov.

Not sure fighting Gil in a defunct org 3 years ago qualifies.

The they I'm referring to is the UFC. I'm sure you know exactly what I meant.

I recall him holding up well against Khabilov. He's won 5 of the last 6.

I think it's time for a step up in comp.

Masvidal's scheduled fight with Bobby Green would have been legit.. replacement is James Krause... I wish they would have found someone else.. Masvidal is ready for a big name again. He wasn't ready back then

post #3965 of 40970
I'm sayin'.....

Jorge has a daughter so I'm sure he's cool with the work either way.

Dude would probably be on his Cerrone flow fighting 6x a year too if he could laugh.gif

I'm picking Krause to tap Masvidal. His BJJ is nice.

I actually wouldn't be shocked to see Krause get the W, but I still think Jorge deserved a bigger name

anyone shocked to find osp the dog against bader? bader's great for a few moments when you count him out (like when he almost knocked out glover) but i can't believe OSP is the dog in this fight. 

 

really liking pearson too, even though he's a 2-1 fave. maynard has no chin left

Not shocked at all to see Bader as the favorite, only losses are to Glover (had him on the ropes), Machida, Tito and Bones. OSP is taking a substantial leap up in competition but he's ranked in the top 10 for a reason. This would definitely be a bet I'd take if I wanted to put money down, that is bet on OSP. But I still understand why Bader would be the favorite.

OSP by sub, Maynard by L&P decision.

2.0? Real Deal is coming off a NC and split loss. Granted he was robbed against Diego. Not sure what inspires your confidence. Good luck, sincerely.

Pearson is coming off a win, let's be real :lol and his NC with Melvin should just be ignored. Before that fight he was coming off two stoppages of some lower tier fighters.

post #3978 of 40970

right i don't have my life savings on it, i'm just saying i like the match up a lot. i don't think maynard is as good as he was in his pro lay and pray days.

I recall Melvin controlling the opening round against "Real Deal" prior to the NC. But yes, "Nightmare" got a gift against Pearson. Probably because the Gil fight is fresh in people's minds.

Respect your opinion. Play of the day is 50U on Shawn Porter, if you're a boxing guy.

Champ: yeah Melvin was winning that fight against Pearson for sure. I think this is a perfect fight honestly to get a clear read on things between Maynard and Pearson

Prelims (FS2): Formiga vs. Makovsky. Should really be on the undercard.

Undercard: Boestch vs. Tavares should be a snoozer decision, IMO. I'd keep an eye on Pearson vs. Maynard. I'm picking Gray Maynard by boring decision with wrestling, but his chin has eroded and "Real Deal" Pearson could secure a KO.

Main (FS1): OSP vs. Bader. Sensing a finish. Either OSP taps "Darth Bader" or Bader KO's St. Preux.

You taking Makovsky or Formiga? Really tough fight to call, could swing either way.

Jussier is my pick, dude has just lost to the elite and also UD'd Cariaso. Showed me he still has a pulse after finishing Jorgensen (which Makovsky also beat). This is also a great match to get a read on the division.

Both guys have solid BJJ. Formiga is good, not great. Can't beat the elite within division. Benavidez, Dodson, McCall. I'm picking Jussier in a razor-thin 29-28 decision.

Anytime, brotha. I really recommend keeping an eye on Showtime boxing. Porter/Brook, Dirrell/Bika 2, Figueroa. Strong, free card.

Hope OSP destroys Bader
post #3989 of 40970

Idk if anyone is in the Sacramento area or trying to go to UFC 177 but Groupon has a deal on 177 tickets. $65 for lower level rear or upper level front (normally $95) and $40 for upper level rear (normally $66).

Hope that comes to fruition one day. Your 49ers knowledge is impeccable. Not to mention MMA and CFB prospects. Sports is a hobby I can't get away from, "addictive drug" if you will.

War OSP.
