There's no way Okami is getting submitted. It's gonna be another tough night for Paul Harris.

Palhares tags him standing and finishes for the TKO in the 1st.

I'm more pumped for this fight than the main event. I don't see this fight going to distance. Whether it's by TKO or submission, one of them is getting the finish.

GO OKAMI!

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Just like Paul Sass, Palhares is a fighter I find hard to bet against, but given both guys skillsets can see this being a fight where neither fighter gains a noticeable lead on the scorecards. Palhares via SD.

God knows, I love the dude, but Harris is not winning this fight. He never beats quality opponents in MMA. And the guys he has managed to beat that have decent BJJ skills, its never by submission.

All in all, going by all his previous fights, its clear Paul Harris is not UFC material. But they keep him around because he's a novelty. An interesting character who provides highlight reel moments, win or lose.

I dislike Palhares but hes definitely UFC material. He isnt top 10, but I'd say hes perpetually top 15 or so.

When going up against Paul Harris .....Belcher rinse and repeat.

Palhares is a dangerous fighter if you are careless. Im gonna think on this one.
