This last 6 weeks of 2019 is stacked, with 245 around the corner, Fight night DC, and Ortega v. The Korean Zombie coming up, its gonna be a wild ride.
This card has Jacare Souza moving up to 205, which I think will be a solid move, but he is stepping in the cage against a 205 pounder on a hot streak in Blachowicz, and Souza is about 4 years outside of his hot streak. I hope to see a rejuvenated Jacare, but my hopes are not that high. The Co-Main event holds Shogun (yes, Shogun) going against Paul Craig, who can stand and bang with the best of them, and this could be a show. ( This is also my pick for FOTN). Before those two step in, we get treated to Olivera v. Gordon, and it seems that Gordon is the favorite coming in, but lets face it, Olivera is a murderer. I see him dominating from bell to bell.
Lets take a look at my picks for this card.
Souza v. Blachowicz - Blachowicz
Shogun v. Craig - Craig
Olivera v. Gordon - Olivera
Arroyo v. Muniz - Arroyo
Perez v. Turman - Perez
Rule of thumb, when in Brazil, Dont ever bet against the Brazilians.
