I probably won't go as far as @DreamBroken did in our picks contest by picking Weili Zhang to upset Jessica Andrade, but I think at the very least, she will give an admirable performance.

Tough to call but should be a fun one. I was 100% confident in Andrade beating Rose last time around, but this one feels like more of a tossup to me. I think of Andrade's last several performances and start to reconsider, but I'll stick with Zhang looking impressive and the upset here.

First two fights have really set a nice pace for this card. One of the rare times I get to watch live.

Khadis Ibragimov's style is spastic rock em, sock em robot meets person high on meth.

That submission was like something that could only work in a martial arts class where the sensei is demonstrating on one of his students at 25% speed.

After going on that run in CES, Andre Soukhamthath has looked like one of the most average fighters ever. Didn't expect him to go 2-5 in the UFC. That's a shame.

It's a damn shame MIZUKI is at flyweight now because it feels like we've been circling her fighting Alexa Grasso since both were in Invicta. Before MIZUKI got riddled with injuries and Grasso moved up to the UFC, that would have been an absolute barnburner.

Sloppy exhausted like two heavyweights at the end Song-Krantz was still a fun fight. This card is delivering.

Krantz isn't a bad fighter, but if Song Kenan gets that tired fighting someone like Derrick Krantz (imo a high level regional fighter/fringe level UFC fighter), it's going to be rough sledding as the competition gets tougher.

A couple years back, I joked about Jingliang Li being the UFC's star in mainland China. However, he's genuinely over in front of this crowd. It's a good win too over a solid opponent too.

By the way, it's ironic that they show the Khabib-McGregor stuff from 229 last year and then FF to this show where Jingliang Li jumps out of the cage after stopping Elizeu Zaleski only to be met by a wall of UFC security. Looks like they shored that problem up.
