I'm not saying Soto is going to win, but his BJJ is nice. The T.J. love is strong on NT, not that I'm opposed. TAM supporter all the way.

TJ says Barao was scared.. says his management wanted the rematch more than he did. He's never missed weight his entire life, but chooses to now. This is gonna get interesting..

Can't believe that they threw in dude from the undercard to the main event on this notice. Card got destroyed in 2 seconds. Dana needs to make this event free to watch. mean.gif

I knew this was coming, prefer Dillashaw not play that angle.

Not to mention the Jorgensen fight got pulled, because the UFC couldn't find an opponent when Cejudo missed weight.

Get chael sonnen on the card he's always good for moments like this
post #4145 of 40969

Barao got his brain rattled 2 months ago and they booked him in a rematch already. That just shows how desperate they were for main event fights. But when UFC offers you a title shot, you can't turn it down cause they'll keep saying you had a chance and turned it down, then pass you over.

 

Remember Machida was in line to fight Jon Jones again after Hendo at 151. When Hendo pulled out and 151 got cancelled and they asked Machida to face Jones at 152 on short notice and he said no. After that Machida had 2 #1 contender matches and won but still got passed over for Sonnen and then Gus. Same thing is happening with Raphael Assuncao now. He didn't take the first Barao fight cause he wanted more time to recover from surgery, so they passed him over this time and gave Barao the rematch.

Machida put on a stinker against Hendo. Didn't deserve a title shot

no one knows who soto is... either he'll pull off the most massive upset in recent memory or he'll get destroyed like he's supposed to. card should be scrapped

No one knows who he is but he isn't a new fighter. Was the first Bellator champ. He should get destroyed

Dillashaw TKO 3 by head kick and punches. Survives a scare, submission attempt from Soto in R1.

If Ferguson doesn't KO Castillo in R1, I see Danny winning a 29-28 decision.

Baszler has the grappling advantage, her submission game is better than Correia. My pick is Bethe Correia by 30-27 decision, similar to what she did in Baltimore to Jessamyn Duke.

Ramsey Nijem is one of those low-key, gatekeeper types I like to root for. Ferreira is going to beat him, but I'll be supporting Ramsey. Nijem gets tapped in the first round by rear-naked choke.

After starting 9-0, Medeiros hasn't won in three consecutive fights. Wouldn't be surprised if Leech Jackson subs Yancy with an arm-triangle choke in R2. But my prediction is Medeiros KO 2.

Don't count out Soto so easily, all it takes is one shot. 

 

I do think Dillashaw wins but at 14-1 odds id put a small wager on Soto

I know of Soto's past so i know he isn't a slouch by any means but TJ needs to finish him ASAP

If Soto wins, it's by early submission.

he's complaining that he "controlled" him on the ground, yet did no damage, didn't attempt to pass, didn't attempt sub until last seconds. this is the ultimate FIGHTING championship

TJ is pretty much dominating the fight, and statistically it's not close striking wise

 

Soto has caught TJ a few times with counters but damn they got me thinking Soto was giving TJ the business
