    My UFC thoughts (which win at 9.2% victory rate)

    Holloway to destroy Aldo. No chance for Aldo win unless a longshot win by decision.
    Overeem solid dog at +195. N'Gannou NOT win in the 1st round.
    Huge, exciting war between Alvarez/Gaethje. Gaethje win ITD.

    Aldo can only win if he uses his leg kicks which for his last four fights he hasn't. He thinks he is a boxer now. Ngannou will ass rape Overreem. Honestly only two fight s I care about and the main event isn't one of them. As an all arounf card it is good.....just not really fired up about it.

    EXP, did you watch the most recent Gatehsjeje fight? The guy serves up his head like a fastball down home plate and says "knock this fucker out of the park" .... then he gets blasted and says "Goddamn that was delicious may I have another??!!! But FIRST, I'm gonna blast you one now right in the fucking noggin!"

    I don't see how this Alvarez fight won't be a nuclear bomb fest unless someone gets sent Bisping-ing to another galaxy in the 1st round.

    Yeah it was a great fight....They use to call Gaethje the white Mike Tyson. I could swear he use to fight different than the Johnson fight. He came forward...covered up and just threw bombs. Eventually that is gonna get him hurt. He needs to add a little more footwork and head movement. Doing that is gonna get you taken down or picked apart by someone eventually. Fun to watch will see. One of the great things about MMA......So many different styles.
