Bellator 238: Budd vs. Cyborg Picks

By: Luke Irwin | January 24, 2020 Bellator Women’s Featherweight Championship: Julia Budd (c) (13-2) vs. Cristiane Justino (21-2) Luke Irwin: Budd hasn’t lost a fight in over eight years since she lost by submission to an up-and-comer named Ronda Rousey. Immovable object, meet an unstoppable force named Cyborg. Justino via R1 KO. Bellator Featherweight World Grand Prix Quarterfinals: Adam Borics (14-0) vs. Darrion Caldwell (14-3) Luke: This should be awesome. Most seedings that Bellator comes out with for their Grand Prixs has a clearly defined A-fighter and a clearly defined B-fighter. Caldwell, of course, is one of the...

UFC Fight Night: Blaydes vs. dos Santos

By: Luke Irwin | January 24, 2020 Heavyweight Bout: Curtis Blaydes (12-2) vs. Junior dos Santos (21-6) Luke Irwin: Ever since his loss to Stipe, the UFC has just run JDS headfirst into heavyweight swingers. Ivanov, Tuivasa, Derrick Lewis, Ngannou, and now Blaydes. He’s come out on the right side of those until Ngannou mauled him in a minute in change. JDS has some serious miles on him from a lot of wars, and unlike his other recent foes, Blaydes has the extra tool of being a devestating takedown artist. One hiccup, or the start of the real downfall?...

Premier Boxing Champions on Showtime: Garcia vs. Redkach Picks

By: Luke Irwin | January 24, 2020 Welterweight Bout: Danny Garcia (35-2) vs. Ivan Redkach (23-4-1) Luke Irwin: Usually fighters who are locked in to their opponent, don’t have to publicly say they’re locked in to their opponent. Redkach is fighting JUST good enough to be a dominated B-side. Knocking out a 52-year old Devon Alexander when you were losing on the cards doesn’t make a Showtime headliner, but hey, whatever, this is, I guess, a step up from Adrian Granados before Garcia actually fights a capable fighter for the first time since September ’18. Garcia via R8 TKO....

Top Rank on ESPN: Alvarez vs. Seals Picks

By: Luke Irwin | January 17, 2020 Vacant WBC Continental Americas Light Heavyweight Championship: Eleider Alvarez (24-1) vs. Michael Seals (24-2) Luke Irwin: Just a tune-up fight after Alvarez’s rematch loss to Sergey Kovalev to get him back into the title picture. Alvarez via R5 KO.

UFC 246: Cerrone vs. McGregor Picks

By: Luke Irwin | January 17, 2020 Welterweight Bout: Conor McGregor (21-4) vs. Donald Cerrone (36-13) Luke Irwin: Goddamn, do I love Cerrone, but this is an absolutely horrible matchup for him. His way to victory is on the ground, even on his back, but he’s going to stand and trade with McGregor to disastrous results. Cerrone’s already a little chinny, and his technical boxing isn’t nearly good enough to avoid that lunchbox left that’s coming in. McGregor via R1 KO. Women’s Bantamweight Bout: Holly Holm (12-5) vs. Raquel Pennington (10-7) Luke: In February 2015, Holm made her UFC...

Premier Boxing Champions on FOX: Williams vs. Rosario Picks

By: Luke Irwin | January 17, 2020 WBA Super/IBF World Junior Middleweight Championships: Julian Williams (c) (27-1-1) vs. Jeison Rosario (19-1-1) Luke Irwin: Williams is getting a fairly easy first defense of his titles after toppling Jarrett Hurd. Rosario is a fine second-level fighter, maybe a fringe contender if you squint hard enough, but a split-decision over Jorge Cota isn’t exactly blistering momentum. Williams via R9 TKO. Interim WBA World Junior Lightweight Championship: Chris Colbert (13-0) vs. Jezzrel Corrales (23-3) Luke: Colbert has checked the boxes of an up-and-comer dispatching veterans. He had little trouble against Mario Briones, Alberto...

Fighters of the Week

By: Luke Irwin | January 14, 2020   1. Rodtang Jitmuangnonz: Left no doubt in his rematch with Jonathan Haggerty after their majority decision bout in August, TKOing him in the third round, and defended his ONE Muay Thai Flyweight title, the same title he took from Haggerty.   2. Alejandra Jimenez: Pulled off a major upset by claiming both world titles from Franchon Crews Dezurn on the Golden Boy card, earning a split-decision win in a fantastic bout, and now she and Elin Cederroos hold all the gold at 168lbs.   3. Elin Cederroos: Is now the IBF...
