UFC 256: Figueiredo vs. Moreno precise picks

Deiveson Figueiredo vs. Brandon Moreno

I don’t see this going past two rounds. Figueiredo is the strongest and most intense fighter in the flyweight division.

Tony Ferguson vs. Charles Oliveira

Glad to see Tony back but Oliveira is on a roll and has surpassed expectations thus far.

Virna Jandiroba vs. Mackenzie Dern

Dern will bring her grappling. As long as she avoids too much damage she wins easily.

Kevin Holland vs. Jacare Souza

Souza should never be underestimated. However, Kevin Holland is on a tear that reminds me of Anderson Silva or Jon Jones early days; possibly greater.

Junior dos Santos vs. Cyril Gane

Dos Santos loves to box but he has been finished in his last three bouts. Gane is a newcomer that fights out of a great camp, and will show his skills tonight.

Cub Swanson vs. Daniel Pineda

Big fan of Cub but Pineda has the clearer path to victory.

Rafael Fiziev vs. Renato Moicano

Fiziev is exciting and I believe he will stop Moicano early with his power.

Billy Quarantillo vs. Gavin Tucker

This is a coin flip to me but I align more with the Quarantillo camp. Tucker has some flash but I don’t see it being enough tonight.

Sam Hughes vs. Tecia Torres

Love some Tecia Torres but Sam Hughes is actually a great opponent for her. I still think Torres ekes out a decision victory.

Chase Hooper vs. Peter Barrett

I haven’t bought stock in Chase Hooper as the next Sean O’ Malley like most of you have. Barrett is a vet and will look to counter the more aggressive Hooper.
