Predictions

Korean Zombie vs Rodriguez: ] I’m a regular believer in talent Rodriguez. I think fortf ears that he has the opportunity to turn the feather on his head if he can combine some winnings and grow his game for a showdown with either Brian Ortega or Max Holloway along the line. While Korean zombie is still a good fighter in its own right and comes out of a performance of the night award in his victory over Dennis Bermudez in February 2017, facing someone at the speed and the oorthodox character of Rodriguez presents too many challenges in this battle. Rodriguez with unanimous decision.

Cerrone vs. Perry: As much as Cerrone gets for his “let’s just hit” attitude, the results tell each other another story. “Cowboy” is simply not an old cowboy and loses four of his last five games with the lone win come against one of his close friends in Yancy Medeiros. Perry, however, seemed to find something in his last fight against Paul Felder after losing consecutive decisions to Max Griffin and Santiago Ponzinibbio. Look for Perry to force the action and find a home for the right hook on Cerron’s chin. Perry through second round TKO.
