Meow to you all sirs

My pick is Rafal Cejrowski


This could be a month with a wild range of scores.


What made you go with this pick meow?
I looked at Rafal but just couldn't be convinced to pick him, that matchup was a toss up as well.
It's like Colombo/Graboski, purest striker/grappler match that we've had in recent memory, but all it takes is Colombo landing one shot or Graboski landing one takedown and the fights over, but who gets what first?
The Diamond/Eddie fights the same for me, Eddie had a fantastic chin and should be able to close the distance on Porier without an issue but Porier has shown his 1-2 combo is just stellar and he has pretty good tdd and ability to get up, Ross up.
Literally hard to find a for sure pick this month, even JDS/Stipe seems obviously in Stipes favour given momentum(if you don't agree remember that Stipe and Junior fought ALISTAIR less than 10 months apart, not exactly enough time for either of them to face a diminished or improved version of Reem and we saw how that faired.
No MMA math doesn't always work but science does, if you hit a brick wall enough times with a sledgehammer it'll start to crack before it breaks and I think we've seen cracks in JDS wall and it's just waiting for the right person to break it and I think stipe is far more likely to get the job done.
But at the same time I can't put all my eggs in Stipes basket as he did lose to JDS when JDS was arguably at the lowest point of his career(that brutal third Velasquez fight) so it's another toss up as JDS has most certainly had a resurgence of sorts.
But he's still only shown that against flat footed Rothwell, not gonna lie the more I typed this out the more I realized the fight is heavily swayed in Stipes favour.

Crazy month though, just hard choice all round.

Honestly the Rafael pick was one of my "pick only if nobody else is available" picks :lol:

What swayed me was his opponent seems to be a bit of a part time fighter. He will fight once or twice in a year then take a year or two off.

While on the other hand Rafael seems to be at the genesis of his career. He has taken a good amount of amateur and pro fights in a relatively short period. I am banking on him being in a good momentum swing and his opponent trying to knock off some cage rust

Horribly tough month though after the first few rounds. Even the more sure thing fights are closer than usual. It should be an interesting result for whoever wins.
