I was on the Oliveira hype train initially but he definitely hasn't lived up to it. He seems to fold instantly whenever he gets in trouble. I hope he wins but I expect Edgar to thoroughly box him up.

If Oliveira wins I may just cry for Edgar. Frankie has had a pretty shitty deal as of late

Frankie is going to keep this on feet and out-box his way to victory.

Me as well. He is still VERY young however.

This fight is stupid though and a waste of time. Just give Edgar a win and do a different fight. Are they going to try and push this as the co-main? That is pathetic.

Flyweights lose in title shots and they don't even make FX prelims. They get sent to facebook.

This fight makes no sense. They should have gave Edgar someone different instead of hurting Oliveira even more. If Frankie loses this fight he might as well retire

Hum...You just gave me another great reason to root for Oliveira, then.

Frankie will get rocked at some point and generally be losing all the power exchanges but he'll show a lot of heart and move around just enough so that when the decision is read people can complain either way.

I can see that, or something very similar, going down.

Frankie 29-28

Doubtful. This isn't Maynard we are talking about here. Oliveira isn't in the same league as the people Frankie has gone toe to toe with.
