Solid card. Picks for fights I care about:
Come on dhickey,but do you really think Babulu has what it takes to come out on top over Mousasi??..same goes for picking Hieron over Daley. I do agree with your other picks though.
Picking Sobral over Mousasi was a tough one. Babulu has faced much tougher competition than Mousasi and to me he make a safer pick. Go look at Babalu’s record. He’s been in with some tough SOBs. I will rooting for Mousasi.
Heiron was an easier one for me. If you were fighting Daley, how would you fight him? The question for me in this fight is can Heiron take him down? If he can then he wins. If they stand and bang, it’s anyone’s fight.
Yeah…Sobral is a tough SOB…who has beaten tough SOB’s…but Mousasi is a different type of challenge. The only way he’ll beat Mousasi is if he hangs for 3 rounds and eeks out a decision over him. But I don’t see it lasting that long.
As for Hieron and Daley…I do agree that if Hieron does take him down,he can win. He’s no submission expert…but he has good wrestling. But he does have a knack for thinking he’s a “banger” sometimes…which he is not. Daley is on another level in that aspect.
We’ll see if Daley’s training with Manhoef and Alliance MMA(Brandon Vera and Ribeiro brothers) will give him that extra edge over Hieron.
