Connor McGreggor is at it again. He labeled Dennis Siver a Nazi. He is stepping hot water with his word choice but I love McGreggor he is a monster and I think he can say what he wants because he backs it up in the octagon.
I'm gunna call a bit of the fights here some of the fights lower on the card are really interesting.
Start with the main event:
Frankie Edgar vs Cub Swanson this fight could be incredible!!!! No immediate title implications behind this fight but just two veterans of the octagon who have some amazing fights to their names. Cub is going to come out brawling and Edgar is going to be just as happy to do the same. I believe though Frankie is better on the mat and should shoot for opportunities if he gets them. I'm gunna say this fight lasts the entire duration and goes to decision where I think Frankie because he is more of a technical fighter will pick up a big victory.
Bobby green vs Edson Barboza in the co-main event could be an interesting fight or be a boring one truly. but I think it's going to be an all out brawl. I'm taking Barboza first round KO purely because he's a brawler he just loves to land heavy explosive shots.
Brad Pickett vs Chico Camus is a fight between a real experienced fighter in Pickett vs an veteran himself in Chico but 7 years the younger. I think Pickett will get Chico to the mat and wrestle his way to a second round submission victory.
Joseph Benavidez vs Dustin Ortiz: Most exciting fight of the night guaranteed. Ortiz is 3-1 since joining the ufc and is a very fast fighter who can outpace almost anyone. But he comes up against one of the most exciting fighters in the UFC Benavidez is so explosive so fast so strong and truly one of the most enjoyable fighters to watch. He just can't get past mighty mouse Johnson for the last hump in his career path considering 2 of his 4 losses come to mighty mouse. I like both fighters alot but I'm going to have to pick Benavidez here to win 3rd round KO on the way.
So I nailed the Werdum knockout of Mark Hunt. I got the round right for Lamas winning just he submitted him after a near knockout blow. and Ellenberger might as well not have even come to Mexico for the fight 15 second submission that's obsurd. sorry I'm late with the post I saved it as a draft Monday and realized i never submitted it haha.
Gastellum with this win has already landed himself a tough fight next which I don't think he stands a chance in taking on Tyron Woodley.
Werdum grabbed the Interim title with a shot at Cain when he comes back.
The bully Lamas now hopes to fight Jose Aldo again for the title. personally I want Lamas and Mcgreggor to fight after their twitter rants back and fourth and the winner should get Aldo.
UFC 180 IS TONIGHT! !!!
I'm going to call the top 3 fights.
Werdum vs Hunt: this is for the interim title and potentially the heavyweight title if Cain gets unjustly stripped of his title. I truly think Hunt is overhyped and Werdum if possible is under-hyped I am going with Werdum winning this thing with a 2nd round K.O.
Ellenberger vs Gastelum: I like both fighters alot in this one and it's going to be a brawl I'm having a tough time picking a clear winner cuz their won't be one but I'm going to stick with Jake Ellenberger on a split decision.
Ricardo "the bully" Lamas vs. Bermudez: well i feel this one is almost a guarantee but hey in the ufc heck in mma anything can happen but I will he picking "The Bully" to win this fight I believe if he lives up to his potential and his name he could be a force for anyone and I got him winning 1st round K.O.
