    This fight is a true coin flip so if I were you, our anyone wagering on this fight, I wouldn't go heavy either way. The safer play is the fight doesn't go the distance. Can I see Holloway knocking Ortega out? Absolutely. Can I see Ortega knocking out Holloway? Yes I can. I just don't see it going 5 full rounds.

    Ortega is the most calm fighter I've seen over the last 5 or so years. He has a very calm demeanor in the ring when bombs are reigning down on him. There's no panic in his game whatsoever and has always been in complete control without ever being in a rush. In Holloway, there are health concerns. We don't know what we're going to see in the Octagon.

    I lean Ortega but not sold on that pick. I just want to see a good fight.

    I believe Aleksandar Rakic is going to KO Clark early here.

    Strange up and down fight for Rakic but he gets it done early.

    I have Ferreira in 1 or 2 next. I have him by sub by the slimmest of margins.

    Well, after the first minute, Ferreira settled in.

    I have Laprise early in the next one.

    Yes i agree on both your main and co-main picks...To elaborate more i think its Ortega's time.
    He's been waiting in the wings for sometime now and its his time.
    Both fights are great match-ups looking for lots of fireworks.


    Enjoy

    I have Anders here but not sold on that play. Think this one ends in 1 or 2. Anders has lost 2 of 3 and is desperate but his cardio always fades if he doesn't get a KO early.

    Well, 231 is in the books and it was a tough card. I put way too much stock in two fighters...Laprise and Chook and it reflected that on betmma tips.

    I didn't give enough credit to Elias and Burns and overrated Claudia. She always comes out strong and then fades when the pressure is on. Big win for Nina.

    Onto the next one.
