Jesse Strader (Striker) vs Chad Anheliger (Striker/Grappler)
This fight is very low level MMA and probably shouldn’t be on a UFC card, but it’ll be a fun fight. Strader is a brawler and Chad is pretty much only a striker, so we should get a finish here.
Diana Belbita (Striker) vs Gloria de Paula (Striker)
Both of these ladies are horrible on the ground if this fight gets there. They both are below average strikers who want to stay standing. I give the edge to Belbita because of her size and she is a slightly better striker. I think she wins via judges ‘ decision.
Chas Skelly (Wrestler) vs Mark Striegl (Grappler)
This is a fight between two guys that haven’t fought in a very very long time. Skelly has struggled with other wrestlers and grabblers in his career. This fight will mostly be fought on the ground and it’ll be a back and forth wrestling match. I think we see a submission here.
Jessica-Rose Clark (Striker/Grappler) vs Stephanie Egger (Wrestler)
Clark has really shown an improvement in her wrestling/grappling game and I think that really helps her out in this one. She will be the better striker and will want to keep this standing, but shouldn’t have a problem if Egger wants to grapple.
Gabriel Benitez (Striker/Grappler) vs David Onama (Striker/Grappler)
I definitely see this being one of the best fights of the night. Both of these men are going to strike and bang. It’ll be smart for Benitez to attack Onama’s legs because he will be pressuring and controlling the octagon. This fight will be a finish.
Mario Bautista (Striker/Grappler) vs Jay Perrin (Grappler)
Perrin takes this fight on very very short notice. Bautista should be a huge problem for Perrin with his power and striking. Perrin is going to want to get close and grapple Bautista and try to wear him out.
Jonathan Pearce (Striker/Wrestler) vs Christian Rodriguez (Striker)
Big on Pearce here. He has a massive size advantage and is taking on a less experienced fighter. Pearce is going to get Rodriguez down quickly and then try to submit him or beat him up for 15 minutes.
Joaquin Buckley (Striker) vs Abdul Razak Alhassan (Striker)
This fight fucks. Both of these guys hit hard and both of these guys are going to try to knock the other down. I like Alhassan in the first.
Jim Miller (Well Rounded) vs Nikolas Motta (Striker)
Motta is a much better athlete than Miller and has the edge on the feet. The thing about Jim is he finds out ways to win these fights. I like Jim Miller to squeeze out a decision victory.
Parker Porter (Striker) vs Alan Baudot (Striker)
This fight should never be on the main card. Baudot is about to be cut and this is just to get Porter a win. Porter will try to get a KO early before trying to get him on his back and end the fight that way.
Jamie Pickett (Striker) vs Kyle Daukaus (Striker/Grappler)
Daukaus needs to win this one. Pickett is not very good, but he is a better athlete. If Pickett can figure out that, we may be looking at a different result. The problem is he usually doesn’t fight like he is. Kyle wins this one as he should.
Johnny Walker (Striker) vs Jamahal Hill (Striker)
Alright, this fight is awesome too. This fight all depends on what fighter shows up for both of these men. Will we get crazy ass Walker or the Walker who got dominated by Santos? Will we get the Hill vs Crute or the Hill vs. Craig? It should be an interesting fight. I like Hill, but I really see a path for Johnny here. Either or, it’ll be a great fight.
