I see a lot of people writing Volk off and crowning Topuria, because of that Islam fight…

Volk is not easy to hit. Skill wise, I don't see any major advantage for Topuria, except power. Volk v Islam 2 was him coming off the couch on short notice, and we saw how far he pushed Islam in their first fight. Unless Volk hits that age 35 cliff suddenly, it should be a competitive fight.

I like Volk. Topuria seems like a guy I'd like to see knocked out.

No idea who to pick really and I have no dog in any of these fights.

For the sake of drama though, I'm going with Ilia and Paulo to win their fights. It shakes things up.

Sadly, I see Garry winning his fight.

woodburn had him and will regret rushing things in the 1st

everything after that is a cut worthy performance, hope he made a decent deal when they brought him in to get sacrificed vs nickal
