We may as well continue the Sterling v Cejudo discussion here, seeing as it's only 5 days away now.

Massive main event, career defining for Sterling and legacy defining for Cejudo. The size difference is going to be crazy once they're in the cage, but not sure it'll be enough to stop CCC.

Burns back in there just 4 weeks since beating Masvidal, and this has to be a #1 contender fight. I think Belal gets handled pretty easily by Leon (as was happening in their fight before the eye poke), but Burns would make for a great challenge.

Hoping to see Evloev continue his run but all his nonsense aside, Mitchell is no joke. Jourdain, Dober, Nzechukwu, even Hawes vs Aliskerov; has turned into a pretty strong card tbh.

Sterling is talking himself up as the potential GOST if he wins lol

Won the belt by being ko'ed by an illegal knee

Then retained the belt in a split decision

Then beat a bloke with one arm

Looks like a beast, none of his fights have gone past 2:30 and have all been won VIA KO

How has he got a shot . He’s a wrestler. Hope he gets knocked out

Your logic doesn't make sense. He's a better wrestler than sterling who's only weapon is to take someone down. Sterling has literally never finished someone on the feet as a pro. Now if you think he can choke out Henry fair enough but that would be pretty crazy

Good picks. Think I'm leaning towards Belal.

Agree, very hard to see Sterling TKO Cejudo. Henry has gone toe to toe with strikers the calibre of Mighty Mouse, TJ, Cruz and Moraes and come out on top. He basically bullied Moraes on the feet, just to prove he could.

I can see Sterling winning this fight for sure, but would be blown away if he knocks Henry out.
 
Frevola looks sloppy as hell but seems to land almost every strike. I think this is about his level, but he's just opened the door for a bigger fight next.

Hoping Jourdain smashes Gracie to open the main card.
