This weekend’s main card is looking like a good event and definitely one to watch these are my main card picks and opinions
the first fight on the card is Francisco trinaldo vs Mike makdessi
this fight is a fairly straightforward prediction for me as although trinaldo is a tough fighter and definitely has the potential to win it I believe that the knockout ability of makdessi will be able to overcome trinaldo’s chin. I predict a second round knockout for makdessi.
After that we have Johnny walker vs Nikita Krylov and although it is a tough fight to call I see krylov’s past losses by submission as his weakness as if he gets over aggresive looking for the takedown he may get caught in a guillotine.
I’m calling a first round submission for walker.
Next up we have renato moicano vs
damir Hadžović and I see this as a decision for moicano as in his most recent fight damir was dominated by wrestling however I wouldn’t count out a submission from moicano either.
In the co-main event Damian Maia takes on Gilbert burns and I see this as either a boring unanimous decision for Maia or a thrilling ko/TKO for burns but I would give the edge to Maia for his top tier grappling and his ever improving striking.
For the main event a surging Charles olivera takes on a dangerous Kevin lee fresh off his head kick finish over Gregor Gillespie. I see this matchup to be much like Paul felder vs Dan hooker as a wild back and forth display of truly high level mixed martial arts with (in my opinion) Lee earning a close split decision.
