Wilson Reis vs. Mighty Mouse and Jacare vs. Robert Whittaker have been added to UFC on Fox in KC.

I think Reis presents an interesting challenge.

If Yair wins, they have to push him straight into a title shot. That's a huge if though. I don't see a real path to victory for him.

This is a huge, huge step up for Yair. Frankie is fast enough to avoid the kicks and get into boxing range and his hands are better then Yair's.

Cain isn't gonna take that fight, he can't train yet. Wouldn't be surprised if the Reem jumped in to fight Fabreezio for a third time.

Even if Cain is healthy which I doubt he is I can't see the UFC trusting him with a fight that big. I think he gets somebody in the lower end of the Top 10 when he returns.

I saw this as a headline on some MMA site (could of sworn it was BJPenn.com) on facebook, but I guess it was clickbait. My mistake.

RDA wants a ranked opponent for UFC 212 in Rio. At 170 pounds.

Wouldn't be super surprised if it was RDA vs. Stun Gun.

Anderson wants to fight Nick Diaz again and I have a feeling we might get it. I don't think Anderson would "win" this time.

Romero wants to fight Anderson for an interim belt but I can't imagine that happens.

Also on the Diaz subject, Tony called Nate out.

If he didn't get popped, I would have liked to see Cain vs Josh Barnett. Looking at Josh's record, he's never really had a chance with an elite UFC fighter. He's beaten MOST of the good fighters he's faced, but a couple of them have gotten the best of him. That's expected at this level when you have so many fights, but I'd like to see him get a full training camp, a real shot at an elite UFC fighter.

I think he'd get wrecked personally but who knows. He's got amazing longevity because he didn't take a lot of damage and trained smartly. The roids that he probably took his whole career when he wasn't fighting probably didn't hurt either.

Cain had a fairly lengthy Facebook post recently that the gist of it was "Don't expect me back anytime soon but I'm not retiring." I'm operating under the assumption that he won't be back in the cage this year, minimum.

I have him retiring next year after he has to pull out of his last big return fight.

Aljo Sterling vs Augusto Mendes at UFC on Fox 24 in Kansas City. Tough fight for Sterling, Augusto's striking looked great in his last fight and his BJJ is world class. If Aljo loses I think he gets cut.

w/r/t Black Beast vs. Hunt, I don't know if Black Beast has the chin to take shots like he's going to take. Although, as I've said before, nobody can stop his power double and if he hits you on the ground you will be knocked out. I think Beast is smart enough to take Hunt down early and finish him.

Yeah, he's not motivated at all. Far too distracted by his lawsuits. He got fucked up by a dude who had food poisoning and could barely keep from shitting and vomiting long enough to get in the cage.

Maia/Masvidal, Miocic/JDS, and DC/Rumble are all close to pick 'em fights. If you're confident in any of them, good to place bets.

I'm not that confident, but I'd pick Rumble and JDS. The Masvidal fight is obviously super dangerous for Maia, I can't make a prediction either way as I like both guys. BUT DEMIAN SHOULD BE FIGHTING FOR A TITLE DAMN YOU DANA WHITE

I dunno about Maia/Masvidal. Demian was ragdolling big dudes at MW and Jorge is a small 170. I think that strength is going to play a big factor but Gamebreds takedown defense makes it an intriguing fight.

I would pick Maia but I'm biased for Maia so I don't know that I'm the best source.

But my feeling is that Masvidal's BJJ off of his back is mediocre. I think Maia only needs to put him down once and have like two minutes to work for him to get the finish. He's also really good at avoiding strikes on the feet and throwing feints and jabs to set up his takedown. I believe.

Werdum fought like a moron against Stipe and looked like shit against Browne and also hasn't looked the same since USADA.

Reem dropped Stipe and looked like shit against Hunt but still managed to get the KO despite food poisoning and also hasn't looked the same since USADA.

I dunno.

I'm cool with this because whoever wins has a built in rematch for whoever wins JDS/Stipe 2. This third fight is a chess match which is exactly what I want to see from heavyweight at this point. I also really don't want to see somebody like the Reem get in there with Ngannou and get beat the fuck down.
