Hmm, so far I have all the right winners, very few had the finishes I expected though. I had a feeling I should've picked way more decisions, and the one decision I did pick was round 1 KO. At least one POTN pick isn't going to be right either, seems like Cain's got it wrapped up.

Gonna count on my faith in BROCK LESNAR to put me ahead of at least some of the pack. Then it's time to pray I don't forget to keep getting my votes in, like I always do with WWE predictions.

Edit: Well POTN ain't happening, upper-middle of the pack (presumably) ain't too bad for my first prediction though.

Since there were 4 OTNs but only one person picked Joe Lauzon I changed your OTN to Cain so you'd get credit and the calculations would be easier. I apologize for this micro aggression against the Commonwealth of MA.

I actually had to look up one of these fights on sherdog to figure out who the guys were. At trashweight, I'm pretty sure the guy with 5" and 25 pounds advantage is gonna win.

7/19/2016 15:49:05 LeftistMuslimObama
Holly Holm Knockout, 3
Gilbert Melendez Decision - Barbosa is cool, but I think gib has the skills to make this a slow grind of a decision.
Francis Ngannou Knockout, 2 - like I said, I think the enormous guy will win.
Kailin Curran Decision - Felice Herrig is bad and also gently caress Illinois.
FOTN: Frankie Saenz vs. Eddie Wineland - Saenz has a lot of finishes on his record and Wineland is usually pretty exciting. This could be a cool fight.
POTN: Holly Holm - I think Holly gets a nasty KO
POTN: Darren Elkins - I dunno, I think Darren usually puts on exciting fights and I've never heard of most of the other guys, lol
