Hey guys, UFC 237 is going down tomorrow night in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I for one am SUPER excited. This is a great card from top to bottom, and rightfully so as its in the very knowledgeable and passionate fans in Brazil. We got “Thug” Rose Namajunes defending her Strawweight championship of the world against Brazilian Jesscia Andrade. Then in the co-main events we have Anderson “The Spider” Silva facing off against middleweight contender Jared Cannonier. Then we have a HUGE featherweight bout between the Brazilian God Jose Aldo facing off against contender Alexander Volkannovski, who happens to be 19-1 and is on a 16 fight win streak, yikes. We also have the likes of Thiago Alves, Bethe Correia, Antonio Nogueria, and BJ Penn vs Clay Guida on the card, wow, just wow.
I will make quick predictions for the co-main events. I actually have no idea how this Aldo vs Volkanovski fight is going down. This could very well possibly be a number 1 contender’s bout, scratch that, it IS a number 1 bout. Jose Aldo is one of the greatest fighters of all time and he is on a little 2 fight win streak, and is still only 32 (even though it feels likes he’s 42). However, the Australian up and comer Volkanovski is 19-1 and on a 16 FIGHT WIN STREAK and is coming off an impressive performance against Chad Mendes. I don’t want to pick against Jose Aldo, i dont feel confident saying this, but i have a hard time picking against a fighter as hot as Volkanovski, i think he starches Aldo in the 2nd round and gets a title fight.
Next, we got another all time great fighting in Anderson Silva fighting Jared Cannonier. Im honestly kinda baffled as to why this is the co main event and not the Aldo fight, im just assuming its cuz of Anderson Silva, i find this really fucking dumb, but whatever. I actually think Silva finds a way to win this fight, im not really that confident in this either, because Cannonier is a top 10 middleweight, i just think Silva can will his way to victory by Split Decision in front of his home crowd.
Alright now to the fight i need. THUG Rose Namajunes is defending her belt for the first time in over a year. Rose is my FAVORITE Women’s fighter on planet Earth, I love her. If you are a fan of background stories, then this is the figthr for you and Rose Namajunes has one of the most insane and heart wrenching back stories of a fighter i have ever seen, it is remarkable what she has overcome and been able to accomplish. Add that to the fact that she is a dam UNDERDOG in every fucking fight, no really, its unbelievable how many people underestimate this girl. Thug Rose is facing a very very tough challenger in Jessica Andrade, whom will come at her with power and strikes Rose has not seen before. I can’t believe this girl Rose is going into the Ultimate enemy territory in Brazil and facing off against a very dangerous hometown fighter. Rose will be Boo’d from the getco, started this week when she landed in Brazil. If there is anyone to overcome this, its Rose. I for one, am not going to be an ignorant human and bet against Thug Rose. I think this very well could end up going the distance and be a UD win for Rose, but for entertainment value, i want to say THUGE ROSE chokes out Andrade in the 4th round, AND STILL.
P.S., people need to research Rose Namajunes, this girl is special and has a chance to be one of the biggest stars in the UFC, she really is THAT special i believe. Try not to cry while watching this.
