    WARLLEY ALVES -220

    Andrade got a cream puff fight last time, Wallhead was forced out from the card citing injury and was replaced by newcomer Salim Touahri. He won the fight via unanimous decision, and only faught once in 2017. He will be fighting in his home country of Brazil. He has quality wins over Alan Jouban, Nordine Taleb, Colby Covington and went the distance with Kamaru Usman. He has a violent choke and is tuff as nails, if this fight comes down to cardio I give Andrade the advantage . Sultan Aliev just has not been very impressive since he joining the UFC. He lives and dies by the KO, and maybe that was good enough in other organizations, not in the UFC. Kenny Robertson was able to KO Aliev before he retired with ease and has a split decision over Bojan Velickovic, this is a guy who i think is just on standby when the UFC goes to do international events, he has zero offense.

    fedor emelianenko vs frank mir is a crap shoot. Mir has not faught since 2016 and but has been more competitive and emelianenko looked like he had a glass jaw in his last fight, Mir will be the larger fighter and his boxing is really improved. So i'm going to play Mir if there is late steam.

    Gerald Harris is the only dog on the card I would consider, but Rafael Lovato Jr. is a unbeaten prospect with good BBJ and really good footwork.

    Iv have only seen Javier Torres fight once and he was horrible, Neiman Gracie is the most complete Gracie fight ever and is a monster on the ground, but was only good in a 3 way parlay when he was sub -1000. Total Mismatch.

    Another Mismatch Dillon Danis is Conor McGregor brazilian jiu-jitsu instructor fighting Kyle Walker . With the entire Bellator roster why is this guy fighting.

    really a shit card for wagering

    Yeah, I like Mir there for a sweat. Had Mitrione vs Fedor as well. But these Bellator HW's it really is just about who is continuing to train and who is in it for the paycheck.

    Don't overthink it, Mir was atleast fighting top 10 HW's as recently as 2 years ago. Fedor is completely done.

    Fight should last like 8 minutes max. GL.

    Former UFC welterweight title contender Demian Maia has agreed to face Kamaru Usman on short notice in the main event of UFC Fight Night on May 19 in Santiago, Chile. UFC officials announced the new 170-pound bout on Thursday. Usman (12-1) was originally supposed to face Santiago Ponzinibbio ... Demian Maia is a major stepdown from Santiago Ponzinibbio at this point in his career

    Lyoto Machida -220

    Vitor Belfort’s original retirement fight plans didn’t go exactly as planned. But, now set to retire in a home bout against a fellow ex-champ, it’s all silver linings for “The Phenom.”
    Belfort was supposed to have met Uriah Hall in a UFC Fight Night 124 encounter in January. It had long been known that Belfort had only one fight left on his UFC contract after a UFC 212 win over Nate Maquardt and, ahead of the meeting with Hall, “The Phenom” confirmed it would also be the final fight of his MMA career.
    As we know, Belfort got as far as making weight, but the middleweight encounter was scrapped after Hall fell ill.

    I don't think we are going to see anything Phenomenal at 224 in this fight. TRT Vitor was the best version of Belfort, in his prime he was taking TRT injection every day, The amount of test they were allowed to have in their systems before USADA was absurd. He has been nocked out in 3 of his last 4 fights. This is a pitty party for a fighter who never should have been. He looked slow as shit and his kicks has no power behind them and he body looked like a melting candle vs Nate Marquardt. TRT Belfor beat Dan Henderson and Luke Rockhold. I'm way more wary of fighters taking ban substances outside of the US but, I cant see Machida at home tarnishing his record and future for legacy someone who was caught. Worth the chalk.

    Perez -300

    Markus "Maluko" Perez (9-1-0) fighter out of Sao Paulo, he going to be the bigger more composed fighter. He took his last fight on short notice vs a guy who just faught Lyoto Machid; He is 0-1 in the UFC but a -300 favorite. He had a tuff as Angela Merkels face fist fight, but I like his chances. I'm 99% positive this is the fist and last time most of you will hear the name James Bochnovic because he is a no talent old story former football player turns to MMA, He was also pulled out of his last fight on a stretcher.

    Rare night when I like this many fights.

    John Lineker -245

    Lineker is just too good, he really went toe to toe with T.J. Dillashaw and he was the more creative fighter. John Lineker had a solid win over Marlon Vera who beat Brian Kelleher. Brian Kelleher beat Renan Barão in has last fight, but the wheel are comming off Barão; im a little suspect that Kelleher chin is wearing down, he does not have great hand speed and has changed his game to fight people like John Lineker but he comes up short.
