My picks for honestly one of the best main cards on paper I have ever seen 3 title fights. I’ll start with the main event and go down. In the main event, I’ll take defending champion Usman. In their last fight, Usman dominated Masvidal. Masvidal took the fight with days’ notice, which could have been the reasoning behind his loss. But with full camp I’m still taking Usman at this point, can’t see anyone beating him anytime soon except Colby Covington. Take Usman by a dominant decision. Next, the main co-event that has fight potential of the year. Current strawweight champion Weili Zhang, coming out of last year’s bout in March, is looking for a successful second title defense against Thug Rose. I’ll take Rose and here’s why. Rose has a very good movement of the feet which makes it difficult to hit her, you have to hit her while standing still which is rare. Even though Zhang has great kickboxing, I don’t think it will be enough to take Rose out, I see Rose take him down and finish with a sub at the start of the fight. Next Flyweight Championship Valentina Shevchenko faces former strawweight campion Jessica Andrade. Look for it to be a competitive toe-to-toe fight in a standing position, but ultimately I believe Valentina won’t risk getting hit by one of Jessica’s powerful punches and will bring the fight to the ground where she will stay and win by. decision. Then former middleweight champion Chris Weidman against Uriah Hall. I think Chris can easily take the fight to the ground Hall is very wild on the feet which leads to some cool moments but can also lead to being knocked out as well as a wrestler than Weidman is I don’t know that will be a problem for him to take it down and win a decision. And the last one is Anthony Smith vs Jimmy Crute Anthony Smith is looking to get back in the title pic and after his last performance you can tell he’s dangerous from anywhere I see Anthony knocking out Jimmy in the first round Jimmy is also very talented in all aspects but I do I don’t think he has enough experience as Anthony that’s why I’m going to take Anthony on this
