Journey Newson, who was expected to face Felipe Colares in a bantamweight bout, also pulled out due to injury. The promotion decided to match Sanders and Corales as a result of those removals on April 22.

I like TJ Brown as the underdog here considering that he swtiched camps to Glory MMA. I think we're going better cardio and a fighting similar to Colby Covington.

I'll follow you on Benitez ITD.

Benitez missed weight by 4 pounds. His opponent decided not to take the fight.

Benitez vs. Pearce is canceled.

What do you think of Cutelaba vs Jacoby under 1.5 at -117 after that face off?

I think it will still go the same way I expected it to before the face-off:

• Cutelaba always goes hard in Round 1.
• He always gets in his opponents face during every face-off, with the hope of rattling them and/or getting into their head somehow that might throw them off their original game plan.
• Jacoby is way more technical when it comes to striking, and he's taller and longer.
• Jacoby already went into this fight being confident he'd win, but now he's determined to not lose to Cutelaba by any means necessary. This means he won't rush into Round 1 and get into a brawl like Cutelaba wants him to. Instead, Jacoby will be much more determined to keep his distance and pick Cutelaba apart until he gasses, which is after Round 1 is over, then he'll put on the pressure and get a TKO in late Round 2 or in Round 3.
• Jacoby can also get a TKO in Round 1, it just depends on how aggressive Cutelaba is. Cutelaba might try to use his wrestling that he used to use because he is facing a pure striker, but he knows that using his wrestling will drain his cardio a lot, especially if he struggles to get a TD or is unable to get a TD altogether.
• Either way, I am not worried about Jacoby. He trains with a good team, and they will have talked about this fight more after the face-off, and will have planned for a safe opening so Jacoby's skill will get him the win against an aggressive brawler who is easy to hit.

I currently have $100 on Jacoby +110, and $50 on Jacoby +130. After the weigh-in, Jacoby's line went to +130 and then quickly got bet down to +105 once videos started surfacing of the face-off. Now Jacoby's line is back to +115, which is around what it was before the face-off.

I forgot to answer your original question about the Total: I still feel fine with my Over 1.5 at +100. The fight can easily end U1.5, but I think the fight will at least start Round 2, unless Cutelaba hasn't learned anything from his last 2 fights in a row where he got TKO'ed by Magomed Ankalaev in early Round 1 and late Round 1.

----------

I did a little digging into their records:

• Cutelaba has 15 wins. 13 of his 15 wins ended in Round 1. 1 of his 15 wins ended 29 seconds into Round 2, and he has 1 decision win.
• Cutelaba has 6 losses. 5 losses ITD, and 1 loss via decision.
• Jacoby's record is skewed because he started his pro career in 2010, but then he took almost 4.5 years off from MMA to go fight in Glory Kickboxing, and returned to MMA in mid-2019.

So yeah, this could end in Round 1, but you are hoping Cutelaba fights reckless and either lands something big early, or gets countered. I think he might've learned from his last 2 losses against a striker who is similar to Jacoby in technical abilities and height/reach, and Cutelaba is 1-3 in his last 4 fights and needs a win, which makes me think he will try to use his wrestling against a taller guy who is a pure striker. Wrestling will get Cutelaba tired, and I assume he'll get finished in late R2 or sometime in R3.

Two underdogs won now. Stamman could be the third?

What does Sanders and Botelho losing have anything to do with Stamann?

Sanders and Botelho are known for weak cardio, especially Sanders, and their bad cardio is why they lost the fight after Round 1.

Merab has great cardio, and Stamann is the one who slows down sometimes. Merab will be making Stamann work the entire fight.

Yeah. Much better fight than I expected. I thought there would be a lot of staring, but it was mostly action in this fight with strikes and wrestling.
